The "Gentle Art" or "Art of Suppleness" (this is the meaning of ju-jitsu in Japanese) does not neutralize power with power but aims to rationally absorb an attack and convert that energy to the opponent's own detriment. So it is designed to defend you with a flexible reaction on violence.
The Ju-Jitsu International Federation (JJIF) currently contemplates three different types of competitions at world level: Fighting System, Duo System and Ne-Waza.
The competition requires, beside the martial art technique, timing, agility, strength and endurance...and especially the Budo spirit!
