Martial Arts of the Federation: Complete and practical self defence
Self-defence training methods
In Judo students practice randori (free practice with control and light resistance). In standup randori partners strive to throw each other, while
JiuJitsu students practice reflexive self-defence in order to respond rather than freeze in the event of a surprise attack, augmenting throws and grappling from judo with additional techniques, often self-defence specific. E.g. defences against wrist and arm grabs, aggressive hand shakes, bear hugs, headlocks, etc. etc. unsuitable for sports like competition.
Why Learn Self Defence?
Practicing the elements of self-defence in a supportive and safe environment enables students to overcome common fears and develop courage, skill, and resourcefulness.
