The Dojo moniker
Martial is relating to; or suited for war, or a warrior.
Academy is a school for advanced education.
Jujitsu is to transform ones self during battle.
Meaning: A skilled Warrior that transcends techniques when executed.
Jiu jitsu consists of many diverse techniques, ranging from strikes to defense against weapons.
In all of our Jiu jitsu classes students will be taught strikes, Judo throws, Judo leverage, pressure points, joint locks, Judo groundwork, defenses from chokes and weapons and some drills.
Once a foundation is established, students will be able to use their opponent's energy against them with reasonable effort.
What Jujitsu means in literal terms
Pliancy and flexibility of both the mind and body to adapt to circumstances spontaneously; to respond to a sudden armed or unarmed attack with composure and presence of mind in the midst of chaos caused by any battle, in order to thwart the attack in the most efficient and effective manner possible, given the relative positions of oneself and the attacker.
Art, in the sense of a finely honed physical skill that transcends physical techniques when executed.
The meaning of Budoshin
In short it means The Martial Way or The Honorable way. In western terms it would be translated to The Knightly Way.
Meaning God or spirit, heart or body.
