Goshin Jiu Jitsu (GJJ) is a martial art that emphasizes self protection. It is a scenario-based art that teaches students to respond to situations with minimal effort using principles of physics, balance, and basic knowledge of human anatomy. GJJ draws from traditional and non-traditional martial arts such as Aiki Jiu Jitsu, Aikido, Kali, Judo, Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to teach students effective timing, use of footwork, and body positioning for prompt neutralization of an attack while standing or being knocked to the ground.

Goshin Jiu Jitsu emphasizes training in 3 key areas:

  1. Free Fighting Defense: How to deal with street attackers, both trained and untrained.  How to deal with self-defense situations, from grabs to weapons to law-enforcement tactics

  2. Weapon Defense: How to deal with someone with a short weapons like a knife or a long weapons like a club.
