Technical characteristics

Although there is some diversity in the actual look and techniques of the various traditional jujutsu systems, there are significant technical similarities common to all schools:
.
  • Students learn traditional jujutsu primarily by observation and imitation of the ryu's waza.
  • The unarmed waza of most schools emphasize joint-locking techniques (kansetsu waza), that is, threatening a joint's integrity by placing pressure on it in a direction contrary to its normal function, aligning it so that muscular strength cannot be brought to bear, take-down or throwing techniques, or a combination of take-downs and joint-locks.
  • Sometimes, atemi (strikes) are targeted to some vulnerable area of the body; this is an aspect of kuzushi, the art of breaking balance as a set-up for a lock, take-down or throw.
  • Movements tend to capitalize on an attacker's momentum and openings in order to place a joint in a compromised position or to break their balance as preparation for a take-down or throw.
  • The defender's own body is positioned so as to take optimal advantage of the attacker's weaknesses while simultaneously presenting few openings or weaknesses of its own.
  • Weapons training was a primary goal of Samurai training.^ Sometimes atemi (strikes) are targeted to some vulnerable area of the body; this is an aspect of kuzushi, the art of breaking balance as a set-up for a lock, take-down or throw.

.Great pains were also taken by the bushi (classic warriors) to develop effective methods of defense, including parrying or blocking strikes, thrusts and kicks, receiving throws or joint-locking techniques (i.e., falling safely and knowing how to "blend" to neutralize a technique's effect), releasing oneself from an enemy's grasp, and changing or shifting one's position to evade or neutralize an attack.^ Just as standard aikido techniques provide strategies for defending against physical attacks, so does ukemi practice provide strategies for defending against falling (or even against the application of an aikido or aikido-like technique).

^ This is to facilitate learning the techniques and certain principles of positioning with respect to an attack.

Buddhism, Shinto, Taoism and Confucian philosophy co-exist in Japan, and people generally mix and match to suit. This reflects the variety of outlook one finds in the different schools.
.Jujutsu expresses the philosophy of yielding to an opponent's force rather than trying to oppose force with force.^ To achieve proper kuzushi, in aikido, one should rely primarily on position and timing, rather than merely on physical force.

.Manipulating an opponent's attack using his force and direction allows jujutsuka to control the balance of their opponent and hence prevent the opponent from resisting the counter attack.^ Not only were many of its techniques new but the principles it introduced--of balance, leverage, and using an opponent's strength against him--threw a fresh light on combat methods.

The Japanese have characterised states of mind that a warrior should be able to adopt in combat to facilitate victory. .These include: an all-encompassing awareness, zanshin (literally "remaining spirit"), in which the practitioner is ready for anything, at any time; the spontaneity of mushin (literally "no mind") which allows immediate action without conscious thought; and a state of equanimity or imperturbability known as fudoshin (literally "immovable mind").^ A state of mental equanimity or imperturbability.

^ A state of cognitive awareness characterized by the absence of discursive thought.

^ Also, upon completing a technique, one's state of cognitive readiness is not abandoned: one remains ready either for a renewed attack by the same opponent, or for an attack from another direction by a new attacker.

The English Wiktionary has a dictionary definition (meanings of a word) for:

Jujutsu (柔術 jūjutsu?)  listen (info • help), meaning the "art of softness", is a Japanese self defence martial art, with many different styles.

Origin

Hundreds of years ago, the samurai defended themselves with Jujutsu if they lost their sword, which is called a Katana. They used it to fight against one or more opponents with or without weapons. The best way to win from your enemy was to throw him or pin him down. They did this by using the energy of the opponent against him.

Modern Jujutsu does not look the same as Jujutsu from hundreds of years ago but the idea is still the same.
