If you'd like to learn self-defense, JMAC can help by teaching you jujutsu and judo.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - eTradeWire -- Did you know judo and Japanese jujutsu can be used for self-defense?

There are many different styles of martial arts, so finding the right one for you is very important. Understanding what you're looking for in a program can help make your journey more fulfilling. If you're interested in competing, judo might be the best choice. If you want to learn how to use a sword (who doesn't?), iaido should be your choice. But, if you want to learn proper self-defense, then jujutsu or judo might be for you.

Jujutsu was developed by the samurai as a way to defend themselves without weapons. Jujutsu is a combination of throws, strikes, joint manipulation, and counterattacks. By focusing on leverage, momentum, and balance instead of pure strength, you can learn a very functional system of self-defense. Applying force to weak points on an assailant's body can render them helpless while minimizing injury. This responsible form of combat is simple but effective.

Judo is a more physically demanding style of martial arts, combining throws, groundwork and conditioning. Judo is made up of three different facets: randori (free practice), kata (forms) and competition. Randori includes throws, pins, grappling, and joint locks, and allows judo players to try their techniques in real time. Kata practice focuses on predetermined techniques to increase your mental focus, discipline, and understanding of movement principles. In competition, you can enter tournaments and test your skills against others. JMAC has produced local, regional and national champions.

At the Japanese Martial Arts Center, you'll learn the focus, and discipline that jujutsu and judo teach while learning to protect yourself. You'll be taught the fundamentals of evasion, strikes, and throws while effectively using force and reducing the risk of injury.
