They can be percussive or use "soft" power. Karate is a typical martial art focusing on percussive atemi.

History[ edit ] Jigoro Kano sent many of his students outside Japan to demonstrate and teach judo. After an equally long trip across North America and Europe , the second student Kawaishi finally settled in France in where he started to teach Jujitsu to the French Law Enforcement Authorities and to a limited number of students, later supported by his assistant Shozo Awazu.

Bernard and Daniel Pariset were among his students. The Gracie family is performing a similar return to its roots by focusing more and more its teaching on Gracie self-defence as originally practised by Maeda. Bernard Pariset died in just before he could be made 10th Dan alongside his long-standing friend and Judo partner Henri Courtine.

This title however is not officially recognized by the Kodokan. Both were world-renowned experts, the former for his nage-waza and standing self-defense techniques, [5] [6] and the latter for his ne-waza and ground self-defense techniques.

Mochizuki, in addition to being a judo instructor, became the first to teach aikido in the West. At the same time, karate was making its first steps in Europe under the umbrella of the young French Judo Federation, like in Japan under the umbrella of the Kodokan until the Shotokan was later established. All were practised at the dojo, fostering a process of hybridization see hybrid martial arts which influenced the making of Atemi Ju-Jitsu as a modern martial art with ancient roots, techniques and ethics.

Education Method and Ethics[ edit ] Practitioners are asked to maintain a balance between all elements of the system in order to build a complete martial artist able to face multiple situations, multiple opponents and multiple types of weapons.

As a result, their training is evenly split between atemi, nage and katame-waza; and between tachi and ne-waza. Atemi Ju-Jitsu is practiced in dedicated dojo wearing a Gi white for students and Blue or Black for instructors and relies on an established protocol for respect and safety purposes. Techniques are taught using original Japanese names and students follow the colour belt system established in the early 20th century by Mikonusoke Kawaishi.
