Jujitsu evolved among the Samurai of feudal Japan as a method for defeating an armed and armoured opponent in which one uses no weapon, or only a short weapon.
Because striking against an armoured opponent proved ineffective, practitioners learned that the most efficient methods for neutralizing an enemy took the form of pins, joint locks, and throws. These techniques were developed around the principal of using an attacker's energy against him, rather than directly opposing it.
We at White Tiger Jujitsu follow a syllabus that has been continuously developed and incorporates not only the traditional art handed down over the generations, but also contemporary moves that compliment and enhance the art.
Brazilian Jui jitsu is a martial art, combat sport system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. It has gained huge attention in the last few years, due to its prominence in UFC and requirement for any mixed martial art fighter. It is an intelligent martial art that suits all shapes and sizes highly technical.
However it is also a great sport for fitness and competition.
MeanStreak MMA is a reality based martial art system that teaches effective techniques that can be used in a combat situation. The whole emphasis of MeanStreak is simple :
MeanStreak really is a mixed martial art, it has throws, joint locks, takedowns, limb destruction, pressure points, ground fighting, nerve attacks, cavity strikes & submissions
This allows you to practice different techniques and finishes which makes you much more effective in the event of an assault or attack, by improving your reactions and ability.
Aikido is a Japanese martial art developed in the late 1920’s and is derived from the traditional art of jujitsu (specifically Daito-
Aikido works through the application of technique rather than strength and so can be practised by anyone regardless of age, gender, size or physical ability.
Our syllabus is derived from the original techniques, and follow the path of the original Yoshinkan teachings developed by Gozo Shioda.
We also use the traditional Japanese terminology, but that shouldn’t put you off as it’s easy to grasp. It’s also a great language to speak and adds another dimension to your development and learning experience.
Judo, meaning "gentle way", was created in 1882, by Kano Jigoro. It is generally categorized as a modern martial art which later evolved into a combat and Olympic sport.
Its most prominent feature is its competitive element, where the objective is to either throw or takedown an opponent to the ground, immobilize or otherwise subdue an opponent with a pin, or force an opponent to submit with a joint lock or a choke.
Strikes and thrusts by hands and feet are not allowed in judo competition or free practice (randori).
A judo practitioner is called a judoka.
Iaido is associated with the smooth, controlled movements of drawing the sword from its scabbard or saya, with simulated striking or cutting an opponent, removing blood from the blade, and then replacing the sword in the scabbard.
While new practitioners of iaido may start learning with a wooden sword (bokken), most of the practitioners will also use the blunt edged sword, called iaito. The more experienced, iaido practitioners use a sharp edged sword (shinken).
Muay Thai, 'the art of 8 limbs' uses the body to mimic the weapons of war.
The body operates as one unit.
The hands become the sword and dagger, the shins and forearms were hardened in training to act as armour against blows, and the elbow to fell opponents, like a heavy mace or hammer, the legs and knees became the axe and staff.
The knees and elbows constantly searching and testing for an opening while grappling and trying to spin an enemy to the ground for the kill.
