WHAT IS JU JITSU
Most people assume that the name of our club is because of a person. We often get asked, who is Leonis?
To make things clear, Leonis is the Latin word for Lion (that`s why our logo is a lion...tadaa).
The symbolic meaning of lions, as one might imagine, primarily deals with strength.
In Egypt, the lion represented the ferocious heat of the sun and was seen in the likeness of Sekhmet who is the Egyptian goddess known as the Eye of Ra. She is the power that protects the good and annihilates the wicked.
In ancient Greece, lions were identified with Dionysus, Phoebus, Cybele, and Artemis because according to the myth lions drew the chariots for these gods and goddesses.
Lions are highly featured in so many cultural myths not only for their powerful presence but also for their fierce pride in their clan. Lions remind us of finding strength as well as deriving a sense of dignity and respect when with our tribe.
For us, Leonis Ju Jitsu Club means the realization of a dream of over 25 years practicing martial arts, dedication, discipline, and hard work.
Starting this ju jitsu school was for so long a dream and now it finally became reality. Our mission is to unite, share our passion for Ju-Jitsu, to inspire others and exchange the knowledge.
We hope you enjoy this beautiful sport as much as we do.
