Kyusho Jutsu

Traditional Japanese Karate-do has several disciplines, including Kyusho Jutsu. Shihan Robert Rohrey started studying Kyusho Jutsu - the art of attacking the internal energy pathways to paralyze the opponent's Ki - under Sensei Vince Morris in 1996. Rob is a certified Kyusho Jutsu instructor and former IIKR Coordinator for the Netherlands. The Art of Kyusho Jutsu

Koryu Jujitsu

The traditional Koryu Jujitsu schools of old taught not merely a defensive art, but the curricula comprised a very comprehensive range of tactics, for example classical jujitsu techniques were not designed to score points, but to be effective for increasing one's chance of survival, allowing an opponent minimal opportunity to counterattack. Old school Jujitsu

Koryu JuJitsuKoryu Jujitsu

Jujitsu was one of the first, perhaps even the very first of the Japanese Arts to be taught in the West and it was not long before Kano Jigoro's new Art and Sport of Judo begun rapidly to gain popularity in Japan and a number of Jujitsu practitioners, encouraged by their instructors, changed over to Kano's Judo, which although based on older jujitsu schools basic methods was considered at the time a more "scientifically structured system". At the same time, other Western Jujitsu dojo's went their own way, incorporating Western ideas into their systems, and thus laying the foundations for some of the modern jujitsu styles seen today.

In traditional Jujitsu there is no such thing as a "prohibited move", Tactics that could be employed included were and are, - grappling (kumi) ,throw (nage), plus techniques for limiting the negative effect of a throw, restraint (osae), locking the joints(kansetsu-waza), chocking (shime- waza), attacking the vital points of the body (kyusho-waza), body strikes (atemi ), kicking (keri), thrusting (tsuki), and hitting (uchi).
