Karate is an ancient fighting art that has evolved over the years to include many variations and techniques. Karate translates into “Kara (empty) Te (hand)", which indicates that the techniques require the use of only the human body as a weapon. “The martial arts, if properly taught, are a balanced system of spiritual discipline, physical education, self-defense and competitive sport."
At Ryuu Martial Arts, which is a blended style derived from four of the major styles of Japanese and Korean karate. They are Okinawa Kenpo Karate, Wado Ryu Karate, Shotokan Karate and Shorin Ryu Karate, with the soft art of Shintoyoshin Ryu Jiu Jitsu. Training in this art is divided between hand, foot, escape and throwing techniques for self-defense. Emphasis is placed in kata (forms), basic techniques and sparring.
Jiu Jitsu is translated as the gentle art of self-defense. This Japanese self-defense system is designed to neutralize attacks by applying pressure on the body's meridians to cause intense but non-damaging pain to the aggressor. The aim of Jiu Jitsu techniques is to neutralize, control, and discourage an attacker with techniques that employ minimal strength yet generate maximum efficiency. * This is an excellent self-defense system for women.*
