“To harmonise/blend with the attacker to gain a positional advantage either by tai sabaki (body movement) or kuzushi (breaking balance). Once the advantage is gained counter-attack with explosive energy; this can be a strike, joint lock or throw. This is followed by a controlling technique to ensure the attacker is no longer a threat.”
Shihan Kevin Walsh
Rishin Ryu Jujutsu is a style of self-defence that teaches you how to defend yourself against an unarmed or armed attacker without using excessive force. You learn to control your opponent rather than cause unnecessary injury.
Rishin Ryu Jujutsu is a modern form of the Koryū (old style) Jujutsu used by the Samurai warriors of Japan. Koryū Jujutsu was used when the Samurai was without his sword or lost his sword in battle. This modern form of Jujutsu uses the principles of Koryū Jujutsu and applies them to modern world scenarios.
