-~Street-Focus Jujitsu~-~Philosophy & Psychology~So what is Street Focus Jujitsu? “Street” Jujitsu is the traditional warrior methods of jujitsu, minus the kata (Japanese word for “dance,” which is a term used to describe prearranged attack & defense training forms) practice. Instead of kata, street-focus jujitsu uses drills & repetition training to “perfect” the techniques. Another feature of Street-Focus Jujitsu is that the use of Japanese terminology & the modern belt system have been excluded for the simple reason that while this art draws heavily from traditional jujitsu & karate it is also “modernized” to be effective in the “streets” and hence a modern American adaptation of a traditional art. While one could consider this system of fighting a Mixed Martial Art, because it draws from multiple arts and styles. Having no place in the world of competition fighting; this system is designed to Kill or Cripple an attacker! Seven Rules of a Street-Fight: Many people are very fond of saying, “The only rule in a Street Fight is there are no rules...” This is only partly true. Although there are no rules which technique or techniques can be used, there are basic “martial arts” principles which govern all fights, battles & even wars... 1. Never Underestimate Your Opponent!!! Never underestimate your opponent's will to survive or heart in a fight. Anyone can be beaten on any given day, regardless of size, speed, skill, style or power on any given day... 2. Never Underestimate Yourself!!! Never believe that you can be easily defeated by your opponent. The human spirit is & will always be stronger then most men will ever know & many will believe... 3. Never Give Your Opponent an Edge!!! Never allow your opponent to exploit and control your weaknesses. Always seek to exploit the weaknesses of your opponent & seek any means to do so. In most assaults & self-defense situations you will always be fighting from the nondominant position of the attack, which means you must in turn seek to minimize your own weakness while exploiting your attackers... 4. Never Allow Fear to Control You!!! Fear is a natural reaction to risk & danger. When you are faced with an upcoming battle, fear is a natural factor. With fear comes adrenaline & the “fight or flight” response, adrenaline increases your power, speed and deadens the effects of pain by various levels. It also decreases motor function & rational thinking, thus by conditioning one's self to understand what is happening to their body and to accept this “happening” one is able to use the added boost but remain completely in control of one's actions.

5. Strike “Outside” Your Opponent's Guard... By striking “outside” of your opponent's guard you can surprise & exploit your opponent's natural bio-mechanical weaknesses. This is defined by staying to the backside/outside your opponent's lead shoulder. In this way you can move behind your opponent at an angle that is difficult to strike & gain the dominant attacking position; both outside the opponent's striking range & outside of the opponent's line of sight. 6. Always Expect to Be Attacked!!! By always expecting to be attacked, one reduces one's risk of being caught off guard by a surprise assault. Also by understanding certain high risk behaviors & high risk locations one can better know when to be alert for an attack and when to be on full alert for dangerous situations. 7. ALWAYS FIGHT TO KILL!!! When your life is on the line there is no exception to survival!!! Psychology of Victimization: The basic psychology of victimization is that victims often feel a self-loathing for being victimized. How this works is that it creates a cycle of learned habitual patterns. As the old saying goes “You often become that which you hate...” As the victim; especially those victimized at early childhood, habitually becomes mistreated & victimized by violence a pattern of rationalization takes place. The rationalization is that “might makes right” or some similar concept. In turned this ideology of might makes right, mixes with a damaged ego and through rationalization produces the belief that “If others are your victims then you are not the victim, simply by virtue of having your own victims.” Over time this cycle is repeated by the “new victims” who seek victimization through victimizing others. Thus a child who was beaten will often beat their own children. Children who were sexual abused, often grow up to sexually abuse other children. This is also one of the many reasons the children of drug addict or alcoholic parents, become addicts themselves. They rationalize the alcohol as the source of abuse & into rationalize the abuse as power, therefore the drug and/or alcohol becomes the psychological “source of power” and the cycle continues from one victim to the next. This is also the reason that many former victims join the military and police forces; that in having domination over others they feel they are no longer victims. This also results in the would be former victims, believing they are not continuing the cycle, but bringing justice and at the same time taking revenge for their own victimization. While in fact their firm belief in doing “Right” is the source rationalization of much suffering and continuing the cycle of victimization. This unfortunately leaves one of two options for this poor misguided souls. Either they are allowed to face themselves and understand that by finding victims, they are not

defeating their own victimization; but furthering it. After all how can you not be a victim when even after the abuser is gone, & you are still tormented by the events of the abuse? The second option is simpler, easier & will often leave you cold in its form. That is to those who have come to enjoy the victimization of others & power they have over them through said abuse, must be dealt with in due fashion. Like a lion or bear who has come to enjoy the taste of human flesh, a victimizer must be “put down” like a mad dog, either through death or incarceration. It is only our choice to decide which, in how far you must go to defend your life from one such as this. Then you must choose what keeps you alive! How do I know what victimization can do others? Because I have broken my own cycle of victimization; mental & physical abuses that have left with only the knowledge of what could become & what lines I must never cross to keep from becoming that monster... Perceptions of Violence: There are so many people who claim to know about street fighting, martial arts & violence. The truth is unless you live in the “Ghetto” or where raised around unrelenting violence; you know nothing of what violence is or isn't. Yet so many martial artist and the public at large, think a martial arts class will teach them “self-defense” or give them an advantage. First lets accept a single fact, there are three types of violent encounters, and they may over lap in some ways, depending on individual perceptions. Also bear in mind that what starts as one thing may evolve into something else. 1. Fighting: First a fight, is somewhat fair. The idea is more like a drunken brawl, between family, friends or strangers. The idea of a fight is to hurt another and is usually brought about by ego and pride. 2. Self-Defense: A self-defense situation is a mugging, a rape or being assaulted. The idea is to get something through the use of force, this may overlap if you are on the defending ends of a street-fight or a fight. 3. Street-Fighting: A street-fight is dirty and vicious with the single minded intent to hurt or kill another person. Most “street-fighters” are liars who want to look Big. The few real street-fighters are anti-social individuals who suffer from multiple psychotic episodes. Where martial arts and regular people fail at; is understanding violence. Violence attracts violence, as described earlier, the Psychology of Victimization; breeds more victims. As the victim of one person, finds other victims for themselves so that they do not feel as if they are the victim. After all in their minds, they are not the victim if you are their victim. Thus those who where beat on as children, often beat their children. Children who were molested often become child molesters. They need a victim, to feel

Second. This could also be using a weapon or dealing permanent damage that would prevent the other person from continuing the . But if you want to learn to defend yourself. The average person may never need to know or use the full force needed to defeat a psychotic attacker. I was told you WILL fight to way you train. less so then with the police and less protections by law for using force. The few martial artists who do teach fighting. The ultimate failure of a Martial Artist lies in that most martial arts classes are geared toward sportsmanship & hobbies. so you must train the way you fight. do so using the methods taught to them. one may never be faced with a psychopath (Mental Deranged Person). No martial arts class. This “breaking the law to save your life” could be simple destruction of property such as breaking a store window to sound the alarm and get police assistance. So then in the real world you must accept your place. teach one control of themselves which can have the effect of allowing the individual. This sounds sick but it is ultimately true. Third. addresses violence by teaching you how violence will breed by more violence. As such there is little difference in the training methods and even less effective in the real world. Martial arts do however. you will be fighting from a defensive position as a victim. I have learned this long before then when I was a teenager studying martial arts. then your probably where you want to be. raped. Just remember it takes a monster to stop a monster. self-control.they were never a victim. often by sportsman or hobbyists. But then again one simply never knows. is break the law. be prepared to be your enemy. or a sadomasochist (Person who enjoys Hurting Themselves and Others). A concept which to me violates the “equal protection of laws” clause of the 14th Amendment. Fourth. train the way you fight. no class can teach violence on the levels of psychological trauma that creates both excellent fighters and complete psychopaths. This is why women who were raped. but it takes a man (woman) to control the monster within themselves. First. A three to twelve hour a week class will do nothing for you if you don't practice and work hard at it on your own. But. if your are interested in defending yourself you can do so only through hard work. In the Army & Marine Corps. to beat your enemy you must get inside your enemy's mind. And this may be a very frightening place. Finally. The same is true if you want to practice a traditional form of exercise for a hobby. you have to accept that what you might have to do to keep from being beaten. There are several use of force laws for citizens. you must first be mentally prepared to win at all costs. after your cell phone goes out and you are being assaulted. you have to decide what you want to do. murdered or worse (and yes there are worse). a sadist (Person who Enjoys Hurting Others). If you want to know a martial arts to compete in tournaments and contests. if attacked first. psych yourself up to do as much damage as possible and consciously choose to ignore pain in order to give pain. accept one fact. often manipulate or physically and emotionally abuse the men they date.

I represent one side of the argument. I'm also the side who well tell that anything is better then nothing. means not only knowing situations. they allow one to understand violence. environments and circumstances that lead to violent behavior patterns. Those few who do practice realistic. I also will say this. To survive violence you must understand violence and in effect experience violence. you had better train to fight as if your life depends on it! The ultimate failing of martial arts is in subscribing to propaganda. Awareness. Something rarely taught in Self-Defense and never taught in pure Martial Arts classes. for doing so. effectiveness means knowing your martial art. From my prospective. the side who will shoot you and having ran out of bullets. and all martial arts have something to offer. and finally they allow one to overcome the threat or use of violence itself. few in any martial artists want to use their training for any other reason then to show off. Sorry law takes a back seat to survival here. is not the chaotic violence of a bar brawl or a mugging. The reason for these three keys. places.. even the one's I don't like. awareness. psychology & effectiveness. superior.. will draw a knife. The controlled violence of the ring. Psychology. Finally. self-defense or combatives program that can survive “pressure testing” and will work regardless of conditions. When you train for a fight. To properly defend yourself you need to address 3 key things. ultimate martial art is full of it. and magazines with bullets. is going to tell me how much force I can use to stop someone who has attacked me because. This means you must learn to be assertive and aggressive to win at all costs. Usually by martial artists who can't fight their way out of a paper bag & often resent anyone who can. & habits where your safety is endangered but also physical signals when a person is preparing for active violence. “street based” self-defense are usually “black balled” as thugs and unenlightened savages. too much force may endanger their civil liberties. win trophies or pick up women. in effect fearing it less. but I will say that my opinion of use of force laws is that they are complete Bull Shit! Some ivy league boy who has never been in serious fight. but too little force will endanger my life. I will not give you legal advise and I suggest you check local laws in may cases for use of force regulations. is knowing even in layman's terms the basic habits. long before I will ever use my fists. All this social networking and hobbyist approaches are why I have a very small group of private students. but they soon learn most guys hate it when a chick beats them in a fair fight. anyone who says “such-&-such” art is the supreme. is first they allow avoidance of trouble. .assault to protect you as you escape to freedom. Some women join martial arts classes to meet guys.

The basic idea of stealth is to not be seen. This requires you to alter manner and dress to match the world around you. Random violence occurs in places of business. This is done.

Those who do will do so doubting themselves.

Yet. This is even more degrading to us. Self-sacrifice is losing distractions to gain substance. For if we know that my understanding these things we are enlightened to what they truly mean & that to willingly walk away from that enlightenment is not ignorance but willing remaining blind when all we need to is open our eyes. so should enter it the next day with continued self reliance not only in old abilities but in your ability to learn new skills. We are never the attackers nor will lower ourselves to believe violence makes us anything more then cowards. For in using violence as a deterrent we. the person we wish to be & the person we pretend to be. Self-Reliance: Self Reliance comes in trusting your intuition & seeking to expand on anything you are taught. psychology. unrelenting. thus you can add skills to your “mental arsenal” by reading books on martial arts. we accept that we have lowered ourselves to the level of our attacker yet we will not fall below them. to stop a monster you must become a monster. If you are attacked you must respond with violence to violence or be harmed and possibly lose your life. Only by stripping away to pretense of who we pretend to be are we able to see who we truly are & direct that person to be who .its not what I know but how I apply it. Self-Improvement: Self Improvement is the first step to building and controlling the “monster. 3. survivalism & so on. we train ourselves to be monsters & in so find the heart of man (women) within. Also taking classes which again add new or expand old skill sets will allow you to build a foundation of exhaustive self-improvement. seeking to always be better will you find new way to maintain old skills & always continue to grow in your understanding. the person we are. 4. Our training philosophy is simple enough.” through self-education you are not limited to what other may teach you. Violence is not always the answer. Therefore. In so doing you can explore the real self & come to understand who you are. we train to survive & to tame the monster within ourselves. In this prospective self-sacrifice is stripping away the excess until you have the core of your vision and claiming said vision with all the power & focus. it is letting go of all else to find that which you desire most and fighting to keep it. So the goal of “Street” Jujitsu is not to select or modify techniques to work on the streets. 1. predatory & instinctively cunning. As much as you should level the school with a fresh prospective. A monster is force of nature. but that does not mean that violence is always to be excluded from the list of answers. because we know we have already opened our eyes before. Self-Sacrifice: Self Sacrifice isn't surrendering nor giving up. philosophy. a monster is a slave to its instincts and in order to be directed properly the monster must be controlled by men & women of go continence. 2. but to build a mental “temple” for the heart and endurance to win no matter what.

Five Animal Philosophy: The five-animal philosophy is based more off of Native American Totems then Chinese Alchemy & Kung-fu. Wolves are just dogs who need their friends to back up their mouths. ● Wolverines: Wolverines are the guys who don't back down. Your body is “hardwired” to survive the worst case scenario. they bark allot and bite very little. We can separate the choices by knowing what we sometimes wish to do can not be done or by knowing what we must sacrifice so that we can do those things that no one believes can be down. selfunderstanding & self-control. the famous “fight or flight” response of the adrenaline dump. they are tough when others are watching them & cowards when alone. free of external motivations. Not all cats are cowards. and like all cowards fear is their defense. namely you. 5.” Emotional Override Conditioning (EOC): Emotional Override Conditioning is a 3 to 5 second drive into the psychological “wall” that is Fear & Survival Instinct. Many cats are cowards. We can follow a path of logical decisions & educated predictions. Self-empowerment is combination of self-education.

As an animal & as a totem a Cat will avoid a fight. Many times we find that who we are is we truly want to be & the person we desire to be is just another illusion to person we pretend to be. ● Dog & Wolves: Dogs are the pathetic wonna-bes of the Streets.

This natural response to fear causes the body to slowly leak adrenaline into the body as the dumb is about to occur. Slowly leaking adrenaline as your body preps to dumb it into your blood stream. even permanently disabling injuries. Especially. or hiding from the threat. If this is a “close call” you can slowly “dial down” with slow relaxing deep breaths. This factor has allowed knife wielding and unarmed attackers to be shot multiple times and still severally injure police. Phase One: Awareness: The first key to survival. forbids all-out guts fighting. As your mind dwells on the pain & fear you will encounter your body will react. In this way they must question their own actions against you & become “Psyched Out” at the sudden ruthlessness you exhibit. instead of your defense. the way in which injuries. This is the point where one should visualize being attacking and the worst case scenarios of that attack. but should not be limited to. ● Phase Two: The Psych-up: The psych-up is an emotional build up addressing the natural fear & adrenaline dumb responses. Awareness has multiple components.. then comes assessing the threat. Again Focus on destroying their defenses and them. This includes. Lastly. the effectiveness of survival relies on this type of animal-ism of instinctive violence. All this is a build up to programming the fight or flight response. If nothing else you can move on to the final phase. avoiding the threat. First. On very few occasions this assessment will involve striking the first blow.

Therefore. ● . Or to put it another way. you release the emotions you have been holding back. one can not be a bully and effective at street focused combative arts because the threat of violence to control another is wholly the wrong intention of survival at all costs. While the pseudo-religious nature of conventional martial arts. to “explode” into your attacker or attackers.way in which the higher brain functions are excluded from the central nervous system (Spinal Cord & Brain Stem) during reflexive actions. some can be addressed simultaneously some can not. knowing that violence must be fully and completely focused on the absolute destruction of your attacker. is awareness. ● Phase Three: Explosion: When the threat is there & fighting unavoidable. it must be understood that violence is not only the last resort by philosophical or religious understanding violence is last resort of the practicality of effectiveness. but attacks with the voraciousness of a predator. One must reserve the psychological shock of all-out fighting with intent to kill for when it is most needed.. is the noticing a potential threat.

Advanced exercises are sets of combination striking drills which build & strength the limbs as well as help to condition timing & build endurance. ● Advanced Exercises: Weighted Striking Drills: By use of wrist & ankle weights one can combine strength training & cardiovascular kick boxing exercises to strengthen & tone the muscles needed for combat. ● Basic Exercises: Push-ups: Push-ups are an excellent way to build & develop upper body strength in the triceps & chest. one can better develop one's strength. it takes a wolf pack to bring down a wolverine. and cowards will keep attacking if they think they can win with numbers. Physical Conditioning: Physical conditioning is hardly a factor if you can drop an attacker in one strike. dismember or destroy an attacker within a few seconds of engaging them. Weighted Sparring Drills: By sparring light contact with another opponent. The following exercises are broken down into two forms of conditioning exercises. As the rule of thumb goes. As such you must attempt to disable. Water Drills: By practicing attack & defense drills in chest to neck high water. Squats: Squats are excellent for building muscles in the legs when one can not get out to run or jog.There is the invaluable flaw in this logic that would seem to be obvious. especially while wearing a weight vest of some kind. But this isn't always possible and the ability to “take a hit” requires you to have enough muscle & mass to both move with the blow and take the hit when it lands. and be ready to break contact and run away at the first chance one has. The key is being able to run away. like push-ups are also very good for developing upper body strength. Basic exercises are exercises where training beginning with the body testing & building strength in the extremities. one may build speed and agility in combat at a far faster rate then with regular sparring drills alone. and that is that against multiple attackers your efforts would be ineffective. Sit-ups/Crunches: Sit-ups and crunches are excellent for building strength & toning the abdominal muscles. speed & balance. Basic & Advanced. . Running/Jogging: Running or Jogging is an excellent method for both strengthening the legs and gaining cardiovascular exercise..

Which is never perfect in applications. immediately. ● Sparring Unarmed Against Clubs: By sparring unarmed against opponents wielding whiffle-ball bats. Each time a killing or crippling blow is dealt. so long as the student is of legal drinking age & can make it home safely. The students are again allowed to experience the reality of combat. first two against one and then three against one the student gets the idea of how to use an attackers body as a shield in application with the again imperfect realities of live combat. Advanced Combative Drills: By practicing the following advanced combative drills. ● The Circle of Lights: The final drill reserved for expert level students & & instructors. ● Sparring Blindfolded: By Sparring against another opponent while wearing a blindfold the student is allowed to explore and develop a “sixth sense” for attack & defense. This intuitive sense of fighting will help to prevent letting the lost of sight from mace. it stop the sparring match & the student allowed to assess their own mistakes & begin again. Semi & Full Contact Sparring: By use of light (semi) contact and eventually full contact sparring the student is able to get a better grasp on what the “perfect” technique becomes when applied to imperfect reality. each standing behind a strobe light. or knock out the other student. If the student is of an exceptionally high caliber minor intoxication should be permitted. ● Sparring Multiple Opponents: By use sparring multiple opponents. it stop the sparring match & the student allowed to assess their own mistakes & begin again. The absolute strictest doctrine of fatal injury should be applied to unarmed student so that a sense of caution against the weapon and not a false sense a security is fostered. Each time a killing or crippling blow is dealt. This drill begins with ten people in a circle.Psychological Conditioning: Basic Combative Drills: By practicing basic strikes in combination with various common unarmed attacks without the pressure of sparring the student it given a chance to see & apply the “perfect” example of each technique. against a weapon wielding opponent & see how effective or ineffective various techniques are in such situations.

Toes (Soft Tissue Targets) X. The focus on striking surfaces in this form of “jujitsu” is that. It should be noted however that much of the in-fighting & clinch methods of “Street” Jujitsu were in fact drawn from Muay Thai kick boxing.Ball of Foot (Striking) The concept that the human body has twelve different weapons. not counting the various eight “hand weapon” striking techniques that come from the hands alone. Forearms (Striking & Chokes) VI. which means less contact time & a faster withdraw time then grappling techniques. Hands (Various “Hand Weapons”) II. Heal (Stomping) XI. This does not remove grappling as a needed skill set! . Elbows (Primarily for In-Fighting) V. a niche form of jujutsu.Shin (Striking) IX.

It it important to remember so much of the human body can be used to injure another person. the striking principles of Street Focus Jujitsu are born.

The striking surface is the tensed muscle between the wrist & little finger.Tense the muscles of the hand & use the area just below the palm as the striking surface..Make a fist extending the second knuckle of the middle finger as the striking surface.. Vertical Fist.. as with the clinched fist... at the second knuckles to prevent the fingers from being broken. Single-Extended Knuckle Fist.. however use the bottom of the fist as the impact surface. Use the First two knuckles as the points of impact. Palm-Heel...Roll the fist into a tight ball. Claw-Hand...Unlike more traditional martial arts this knife-hand strike folds the fingers inward. Knife Hand.Make a fist extending the pointer and middle fingers to strike with the second knuckles of the fingers.

while dropping the body's weight slightly. driving the body & not the fist threw an attacker with both surprise them & throw them off guard. That serves to embody the principle of striking through the target. while dropping the lead knee slightly. Step forward a half step. Reverse PunchThe reverse punch embodies the principle of using a winding force around a solid axis & channeled upon a focus point. As both illustrations show the fist moving past this line of impact. pushing the body's rotation by pivoting on the ball of the rear foot. Lead PunchThe lead punch embodies the principle of hitting the closest natural target with the closest natural weapon. much like the turbine of a generator.. This line represents an opponent & point of impact. is to deliver a powerful close range strike. or cross in boxing. once one has created an opening by deflections using the lead hand. back & shoulders. This allows for greater focus of the body's weight & momentum to be directed into the strike. . against vital target areas. In combat this often creates internal damage when striking “soft tissue” vital points. This section will discuss the proper methods of delivering the various “hand weapons” previously discussed.. This adds kinetic energy from the body's muscular system combined & focused through the alignment of those muscles in the legs. Thrust the lead hand forward just above the shoulder. are from a punch. the other 48% is a foreign object. Thrust the rear arm forward just as the body completes it's forward rotation. Also one should consider that 52% of all knockouts which occur during a street brawl. So that a powerful thrust through an opponent at a close range.Striking Methods: Striking is a common fighting method & is a deadly skill if mastered. The classic use of a reverse punch. This allows the body's weight & momentum to build quicker over a shorter distance. Twist the hips forward with a sudden snap of the waist. This is due to the commonly taught position that the lead hand is for jabs and deflecting attacks. A vertical fist is commonly used for this strike. In many traditional arts considered a preliminary offensive method of combat. Many skilled fighter effect their knock punches with a “hard” lead punch. Note: As one may notice in both illustrations there are two circles connected by a line.

& even Western Boxing. allowing a totally focused & channeled flow of energy into the strike. The basic study of fighting techniques begins with the study and arming of knowledge to deliver systems (striking techniques).Upper-Cut PunchThe upper-cut is considered a “sucker punch” in most circles & is an extremely damaging. The exception to a common Back-Fist & that found in Jujitsu & Boxing systems is that the “Karate” back fist is a straight snapping motion & a “Jujitsu” back fist moves the fist in a circular motion from the elbow. This kinetic energy is multiplied by & directed from the upward movement of the fist following the arc. This arc directs the body's energy from the hips. this movement can be used to either attack a target or to block/strike a target on an attacking limb. with the elbow. As you strike forward move the fist in a circular motion. The force & weight of the body's forward momentum is extended forward by the pivoting of the rear foot. striking with the knuckles. source of stability from the body. Back-Fist StrikeThis striking method can be used both offensively & defensively. strike. such as the knife hand or hammer fist. All martial arts have evolved from copying the personal styles of individuals & in some cases animals.” forms or actions. In many cases one may need only complete this movement from the present position of the lead hand from which ever stance one has assumed. such as a reverse punch. To preform this technique. Another example would be. One must consider that each method demonstrated follows certain principles/guidelines that can be used with other strikes & modified to work however the practicer desires. There is however proper application of principles. Such as stepping forward. As the foot touches the ground pivot on the rear foot while raising the fist upward along a rising arc from the lead hip.” Thus my intention is to teach only survival skills & not set “styles. like any of the near infinite combinations of striking methods & “fist weapons” can be modified to use other hand weapons besides the fist. as in the upper-cut or behind a lead punch. Snap the hips forward just before you step off the rear foot. There is no such thing as “proper technique” or “proper form” in a street fight. This method is found in almost all Asian martial arts. draw the lead arm back then snap it forward in either a linear or circular motion. twisting the body behind the strike using the hips. could be modified to deliver an upper-cut with the reverse hand such as when within close quarters. This method of attack. This deludes the original “One thing. the applied science of combat & combat psychology. these delivery methods are then expanded with target and effect of target information & . Nothing is “written in stone” in street focus jujitsu.

This however is not true of Street Focus Jujitsu. As such. “Street” Jujitsu is only raw combative principles waiting for practicers to combine them into a lethal style formed solely by each student & practicer. (1) kicking above the waist is less powerful then a waist level kick. The execute a front kick begin by drawing the knee to waist level. There are no katas or predesigned forms. As the throat is exposed the student can easily deliver a reverse Claw Hand strike to grab & crush the trachea (windpipe) and end the confrontation. by bending the knee. as if pushing a large object. Snap/thrust the foot forward. best used to target the knees. As an example. common more so to sport karate & tae kwon do systems. with the knee bent. shin or at the highest level the groin. however this is only a set-up for the real target with is the exposed throat via the palm strike upper-cut. heel or ball of the foot as the striking surface. Th reasoning for this is based on two simple reasons. a palm strike upper-cut and reverse claw hand strike combination. one can use a toe (extremely rare). the primary principles of combative training & practice are upheld as the foundation of training. using the heel or blade of the foot. the student of Street Focus Jujitsu will first learn to execute the delivery method.finally with alternative “weapons” to be used with the delivery methods. in fact one should kick at low lining targets such as the knees. The target is the chin. Side KickThe side kick is a long distance style attack. Thrust the leg out to the side.” Reflexive conditioning is common to all martial arts because this type of training requires both study & long hours of practice. Front KickThe front kick is common place in all martial arts. then the delivery of specific weapons to specific targets. & (2) a kick above the waist is far less stable (thus much of the lack of power). Thus students build their own practices & practicers design their own individual styles (similar to the practice of Jeet Kune Do). Note: It is not the practice of “Street” Jujitsu to alter or force it's students' natural fighting instincts by strict/limited means of “Combative Styling. . Begin by drawing the knee up to hip level. Regardless one should never kick above one's own waist. to include Roman Boxing & even the precursor to Greeko-Roman wrestling. The simple upper-cut can substitute a fore fist with a more practical Palm Heel.

Street Focus Jujitsu is a HandStrike Dominant Art.Back-KickThe back kick is one of the most powerful kicks in any martial art. Outside Elbow StrikeThe outside elbow strike can be used against an attacker who grabs you from behind or as an automatic response to the inside elbow strike. It is executed by torquing body forward at the waist and using the impact area of the forearm. as kicks are extremely dangerous in a street fight both to the practice & to the defend against.. The effectiveness of knee & elbow strikes is that they use the muscles of the torso & the arms within close ranges to strike an attacker. By leaning forward while while kicking.. This strike allows more of the weight & energy from the body to be used in the strike. Begin by raising the leg. just before the elbow as the striking surface. the tip of the elbow should be used as the striking surface. Inside Elbow StrikeThe inside elbow strike is a good guard penetrating strike. knee bent to waist level as executing a front kick. one's upper body & head are removed as targets while a strong “low-line” attack is delivered. Lean forward while while thrusting the leg back striking with the heel of the foot. as well as that explained above. it should be noted that an equal amount of striking techniques should be applied to fighting and strikes within grappling or clinch ranges. In-fighting Techniques: While one may consider Street Focus Jujitsu a hand strike or punching dominant art. Also bear in mind that one's kicks may vary slightly considering a “one on one” or multiple attacker scenario. . this is very similar to hitting a person with a baseball bat in terms of effectiveness & damage. For this reason. Note: Although kicks are more powerful then hand strikes it is not usually a good idea to focus excessively on one's kicking ability.

. by stepping forward using the rising elbow strike in combination with a follow strike from the reverse hand. Basic Grappling: Basic grappling is the execution of small. such as a kick to the groin. What you learn as “grappling techniques” will not make you a submission or MMA (Mixed Martial Arts)/NHB (No-Holds-Barred) fighter. holding. & executing a rising elbow strike so that the forearm deflects the elbow strike the opponent in simultaneous actions. often making the intended attack useless. As one is attacked.Rising Elbow StrikeThe rising elbow strike is a close range. Many of these techniques involve trapping skills as well. Low BlockThe low block works on two levels. in the same manner. Knee StrikeThe knee is an effective close range fighting technique for targeting the thigh. one need only step into the strike. (1) to push away or parry an attack to the lower area of the body. except that the elbow is used as the striking surface. throwing or sweeping techniques. “Street” Jujitsu is not about winning trophies. It will however save your life in a real fight. hair or collar & smash their face into a rising knee. one could grab an opponent by the ears. groin or stomach regions of the body. tournaments or keeping alive any traditions. upper-cut type strike. It is a commonly held principle of penetrating the opponent & attacker's guard. Thus an attacker would either impel themselves on a elbow at the sternum or xyphoid process target points or would step directly into rising elbow strike to the chin. Likewise. by use of sweeping arc to the outside using the inside of the forearm as the impact surface & (2) to continue the movement in a circular motion effectively trapping an attacker's leg. An important side issue involving the rising elbow strike is its often over-looked defensive uses. simple & non-elaborate grabbing.

functions on two levels. This allows one to use a simple sweeping block. In any case or situation. which in effect is a small movement to conserve energy and trap an opponent by their wrongful intentions to attack. These movements should neither be robotic nor should they be considered as specific methods. such as seen in “neo-traditional*” martial arts schools. Thus all techniques are simple. as long as the attacker can dominate the fight they life and health of the intended victim is in danger. . to grab the attacking limb with the hand as the block is executed effectively. like the low block.. Therefor. raise the arm sweeping in front of the body. Against a high range attack. a variation of the high block can be executed by sweeping the hand down across the face. An inside block. chest or solar plexus push the attack down & possibly trap the attacker's limbs to apply joint locks & breaks. attack & attack until the threat is neutralized. Instead of focusing on the “strict idea” of preforming rigid or “properly formed” technical styles. (1) deflecting the attack & (2) trapping the attacking limb. most “neo-traditionalism” is a result of commercialization of the martial arts. defensive tactics such as blocking should be considered supplementary to one's offensive intentions. On the level of trapping from the basic high block. Focus on one's offensive ability first. Blocking should be used as a set up for further strikes and not relied on for protection. attack. In other words. rely on close combat strikes to disable or to stun an attacker so that one can break away and run for safety. at a rising angle from the center of the body. *Note: Although the term “neo-traditional” is rarely used by mainstream martial artists & self-defense instructors it is held in spirit. or define tradition by academic knowledge without a sense of the original purpose. defense can not save your life or win any battles once the fight has begun.. move the hand around and elbow in a circular motion out & down.High BlockThe high block. The term “neo-traditional” & “neo-traditions” means “new-tradition” or “newly-traditional” this refers to martial artists & martial arts organizations who forsake practicality for publicity. such as a punch to the face. as their purpose is only to help condition one's responses not become them. direct & based on effect not appearance or sportsmanship. As such.

& pull it toward you. It is important for the practicer to follow up with another attack while trapping the attacker’s arm. & sometimes one need only make use of pushing across the knuckles. at the same time. to the breaking point. To quickly break the opponent’s arm.Entrapping Arm-LockThe entrapping arm lock is executed from a high or medium block and is extreme effective on the ground. This has the potential to off balance an attacker & throw them to the ground. from the block. in others simply apply pressure from pulling with the arms alone. . Grab the opponent's hand. Bring one arm up to reverse upper cut the enemy’s chin with the palm of the hand. Basic Wrist-LockFrom the first day of training one's intent should be to destroy the enemy. Grab the wrist turning the “little finger” to the inside of the forearm as you jerk the arm to the outside of the shoulder. As the block is executed the pit fighter wraps the blocking arm around the attacker’s arm and pulls up hyper extending the opponent's elbow. Even with the movement of pulling the hand back. This wrenches the enemy’s neck. Bypassing the Attack to Break the NeckBypassing the attack is commonly used as away to destroy aggressive and overly aggressive attackers. fall back while wrenching the elbow up to break the opponent’s arm. In some cases this can be done by stepping back. Outside Wrist-LockThis wrist0lock has not only the possibility of damaging the wrist but also of dislocating the shoulder. the other hand should palm heel strike the base of the enemy’s skull. As they attacks or leads with a punch. drop low by bending the knees and moving to the outside the enemy’s shoulder. one must press down across the knuckles. This implies that every lock “Break” the joint & every “broken” joint be used to continually force more pain upon the enemy.

using the stomach muscles. It should be noted that a twisting-jerk to one side can easily dislocate a finger. This lock alone serves to break & hold an attacker's elbow & arm. Which makes it an excellent self-defense tactic since no one can grab you with broken fingers or punch you without a fist. The outcome is based on whether or not the arm-pit or elbow is pulled against the shoulder. Grab the opponent's arm from a high block & pivot under the attacker's arm so that you are belly to back. Grab the elbow with both hands & pull the elbow against the body as tightly as possible. although not mentioned as a technique. This is a good disarming technique for an attacker wielding a knife.Hugging Wrist-LockThis lock is used to draw an opponent into an open position. However this lock also opens the back of the head as a target for attack & leaves the exposed arm open to permanent injury by breaking the wrist. or possibly both. elbow & shoulder dislocation/ Shoulder-Dislocation/Elbow BreakerThis technique can either dislocate an opponent's shoulder or break the elbow (as shown). Simply grab an opponent's elbow with a inside block. This will allow one to “break the elbow. then pull down as hard as you can. This lock can be used with repeated knee strikes to cause serious injury to the face & head while breaking the elbow. Note: Breaking the fingers is encouraged.” Back-Elbow-LockThis lock is often used by police & security personnel to drive an assailant to the ground. Once the arm is firmly controlled lean the chest forward with the waist & jerk the elbow against the body with one's full strength. as you step to the inside of their punch (effectively trapping their arm between your neck & the blocking arm). .

press forward against the elbow. Whether you use a palm strike followed by constant pressure or an elbow strike with constant pressure is up to you based on what you feel is effective. It embraces the basic concept of hyper extending the elbow to cause pain & possible destruction of the joint. this allows pressure to be directed on the elbow. Another variation of this strangle is preformed by grabbing the opponent's collar. The body acts as a natural brace. IN all the arts where choke & strangle holds are used they are considered extremely dangerous & effective as many such holds can leave an opponent rendered unconscious & no longer a threat. Choke & Strangle Holds: Choke and strangle holds are found in almost all martial arts. Above shows how a inside block. Ankle-LockAlthough many consider the ankle-lock a submission technique. While pulling back on the wrist. This forces the windpipe to close against the forearm.

The combative techniques & several of its concepts come from various Martial Arts & a mix of Martial Arts I taught as a hand-to-hand combatives system to my fire team within the Army. This never works out in the long run. Understand both your physical & social environments and adapt your training in the martial arts & selfdefense to that world. in the formulation of this system because for every technique there are a thousand faults and counters. Ninjitsu. they are important as long as others see them as important. tradition. Otherwise. Street Focus Jujitsu. If you are training for a selfdefense situation. they want you to fear them. I draw concepts from American Sport Jujitsu. They want respect but don't know anything about it or what true respect brings. it is not even an answer. Multiple opponents who will take advantage of your limited mobility and openness to their assaults. All of these factors must be considered in training. is not the answer. The truth is there are no answers. outside of people fear violence so they use violence as a threat to get what they want. The psychology of violence was what counted the most. Thats a matter of basics street smarts meets basic psychology.. then know the “rules” of violence & victimization. This what sets the professional “Bad Ass” apart from the “Wonna-bes. Muay Thai & just plain old street smarts. You will find many more of these people in the world then the “wolverine types” I discussed earlier. The realities of what is effective & what is not in the real world is much debated in combatives & martial arts schools throughout the world. That being that whether your learning history. yet they keep fighting were they should be disabled leaving you trapped with such person and unable to run. Not to mention the destabilizing effects of alcohol or drugs on oneself if one uses these substances.. They are the people who play at the roles of being violent and tough. Judo. Weapons you either don't see or that come from foreign objects laying about the area that can be used against you.” The fact that 4 out of five of the animal personality types encountered on the street aren't violent is because they don't understand violence. While this explains some of the training philosophies mentioned earlier. Nor does this exhaust the use of drugs. In their minds they are strong as long as others perceive them as strong. . you are training for a fairytale fight in a perfect world while living in an imperfect one. and in that all martial arts systems including this one are flawed & worthless. it also explains the short comings of all martial arts. Above all else.” and more importantly its that level of violence which is never taught in martial arts by “professional street fighters” & claimed by wonna-be “tough guys. but are the least of your worries. and alcohol which may allow a person with stand extreme amounts of pain you might inflict upon them. Karate. sportsmanship or combatives they can not prepare you for anything outside of the foreseen world of perceived events. the psychological factors where important.happen quite easily. Techniques meant nothing. “Street” Jujitsu is a question and thats whats the way I want it.

The guy with the knife who will stab is the threat that the guy who uses the knife to scare will never be. letting go of comfortable idea for uncomfortable truths. In this way. and there are many better ways then what I've outlined here today. Which means even though he wouldn't shot me in cold blood if a made a sudden movement or in any way startled him he'd probably shoot me out of fear.” Meaning quite simply. the question that is my intention of Street Focus Jujitsu. until that advantage is taken away. A thug bragging about how tough he is. To do what is necessary is similar to the Wing Chun principle of “Economy of Motion” meaning to waste the least amount of energy for the most results.I codified a system.” Ask yourself. because everyone has done that before. because no one I'd seen had ever done so before. not only what are you able to do. is simply what is the faster. The person who worries me. is more scared them you. But. I applied various martial arts in principle to formulate my own. So the real question is will you stop at this book which is a scratch on the surface of the proverbial mountain or will you dig deeper to find a better way? . Simply put. The advantage as Sun Tzu but it is in knowing “both your enemy & yourself. realistic & equally as meaningful method. stay away from the dog who bites. I am survivalist above all else. knowing how people react is another & knowing why people react is something else altogether. For example. are the people who simply act. May goal in life is to stay alive and for that I must be willing to do what is necessary. This especially true of “martial artists” the guys who want to be respected for their ability often go out of their way to prove that ability.” In truth he is very much afraid & this something that worries me.. if a person intends to get your money he will take it be any means available & necessary to achieving his goals. In most cases people brandish weapons to either scare you to gain control or to keep control all out of fear. I know a man who brags “He will shot anyone who messes with him dead & he doesn't care.? It is true that a person with a gun or knife has an advantage.. is that you must ask if you intend to use the better way fully. “Boy.. is determined by more then what I want to happen. You see if an altercation occurred between us I would remain calm (I've had gun pointed at me before) & he would scared. better & more meaningful way to do this & why am I not doing it. The reason for asking if there is a better way. Everything comes down to what works & what doesn't. & I know a few. its determined by what I need to happen. but what do you intend to do? And can you do it? Knowing how to fight is one thing. finding the meaning behind each method. As common to most “hick-towns” in America the “old-timers” will tell you. They guy who wants you to fear him. those who have intentions are what is dangerous. simply ain't. As I am often caught telling my students. the guy with gun only has the advantage if your scared of the gun or he has the nerve to use the gun. and choosing more simplified. Necessity. don't run from the dog who barks. In the mindset of a pure survivalist nature this means. that addresses the world no one learns in the dojo or gym.

The questions I choose to ask get me in trouble or sometimes they get me out of it.-~A Final Word~Who am I? To me this is all that one need concern themselves with. I can choose to fight or walk away.. We can not change the world until we choose to understand why the world is as it is. Choose Well. who must destroy the peace & health of others to feel “secure” in his/her own mind. A choice is a choice & most of all its your choice! Knowing it's your choice is part of the answer but choosing to make that choice is something altogether different. There are two worlds the world we wish existed and the one that does. So much so that every choice we make must be towards that end. In searching for why. A martial art was know only by what worked best to keep its practicers alive. To be great we must choose to be great. I am the guy who questions everything and asks for answers to the questions each answer presents for me. a master.. I am human & a man.... can prepare you for the world as we know it. Such as when protecting yourself or a loved one. But. In the past a master was known not by belts. I learned to fight to survive. So that the choice to be great was measured by the strength & character of the individual. I learned to endure pain & fatigue to survive. My violent nature is a matter of survival.. as we all do. Needlessly hurting others is the act of a coward. Ron Collins . & this is how the world will see us. certificates or awards but by the way he lived his life. Most of all. Nor can anyone develop a way in which any martial art can. a guru or sage. I'm not an expert. There will always be times when the choices are much harder to make. I have control of my actions and my inactions. I learned to use the side of me that is “animal instinct” to survive. I found how & in searching a better how I found what was lacking. As I outlined no martial art. While I am a violent person by nature. including my own. I believe there is a time & place when violence is needed. I do not support needless violence. Choose Wisely.
