What is Jiu-Jitsu?
Before MMA, Aikido, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Judo there was Japanese Jiu-Jitsu—the hand-to-hand, close-combat martial art of the Japanese Samurai. JIU-JITSU was never designed as a sport, or a game. JIU-JITSU is a fundamental ‘life-skill’ … a set of abilities that is necessary to help you survive in an increasingly hostile world. JIU-JITSU works consistently because it is based on simple applied physics, redirection of force, and focused pain compliance. To train with BISSETT JIU-JITSU is to prepare for serious, potentially dangerous real-life situations. In repeated life-and-death situations, JIU-JITSU has consistently saved the lives of those who have invested their time and effort in learning these critical skills.
No other system of self-defense employs the full range of tactics that belong to BISSETT JIU-JITSU, including extensive grappling and groundwork, all but ignored by most other combat or ‘Martial’ arts.
Our job at BISSETT JIU-JITSU is simply to provide the best training available anywhere to effectively deal with hostile confrontations. We prepare our students to act and respond appropriately to a complete range of attacks, and to be fluent with all aspects of facing confrontation.
Founded in 1980, BISSETT JIU-JITSU has been taught world-wide to police, military, private security, close-protection specialists and enthusiastic civilian students for almost four decades. As a part of JISHIN-RYU JIU-JITSU , our system has deep historic roots.
BISSETT JIU-JITSU is a practical and effective system of self-defense, designed for real-life situations, and that anyone can employ. Remembering that “Martial” literally means “Military”, BISSETT JIU-JITSU goes beyond just the basic principles of self-defense and employs Military Tactical and Strategic principles in order to provide our practitioners with the ultimate in Personal Protective strategy.
To train with us is to prepare for the reality or violent, physical confrontation.
