The Way Of Gentleness
Ju-Jitsu (the way of gentleness) is a true Martial Art and is recognised as the 'Mother Art' from which others (such as Judo, Kendo, Karate) have developed.
It's methods of combat are at least two thousand years old, but they are equally effective in tackling the violence of the 20th century.
Of all the Martial Arts, Ju-Jitsu has the most useful self-defence application.
Its techniques are simple, yet effective and can be practised by anyone, irrespective of age, sex or physical ability from the ages of six to sixty six.
A recent development is Sports Ju-Jitsu. Students who wish to show off their talents can compete in club, area, national and international competitions.
7 Virtues of Bushido
Ju-Jitsu was developed by the Samurai warriors who lived by the 7 virtues of Bushido
Be acutely honest throughout your dealings with all people. Believe in justice, not from other people, but from yourself. To the true warrior, all points of view are deeply considered regarding honesty, justice and integrity.
Warriors make a full commitment to their decisions.
Warriors have only one judge of honor and character and that is themselves. Decisions they make and how these decisions are carried out is a reflection of whom they truly are.
You cannot hide from yourself.
Hiding like a turtle in a shell is not living at all. A true warrior must have heroic courage. It is absolutely risky. It is living life completely, fully and wonderfully.
Heroic courage is not blind. It is intelligent and strong.
True warriors have no reason to be cruel. They do not need to prove their strength. Warriors are courteous even to their enemies. Warriors are not only respected for their strength in battle but also their dealings with others.
The true strength of a warrior becomes apparent during difficult times.
Through intense training and hard work the true warrior becomes quick and strong. They are not as most people. They develop a power that must be used for good. They have compassion. They help their follow man at every opportunity.
If an opportunity does not arise, they go out of their way to find one.
Honest and Sincerity
When warriors say that they will perform an action, it is as good as done. Nothing will stop them from completing what they say they will do. They do not have to give their word. They do not have to promise.
Speaking and doing are the same action.
Duty and Loyalty
Warriors are resonsible for everything that they have done and everything that they have said and all of the consequences that follow. They are immensely loyal to all of those in their care.
To everyone that they are responsible for they remain fiercely true.
