Setchu-ryu Jujutsu is an eclectic system of martial arts comprised of several distinct systems of martial arts blended together into one seamless style. The primary styles incorporated in the system are Danzan Ryu Jujitsu, Tenio DeCuerdas Eskrima, Lua Halau O Kaihewalu, and Wa Ko Ryu Jujutsu, though students will also learn concepts from Kosho Ryu Kenpo, Aikido, and Rillamas Serrada Escrima. Students will be taught how to apply and receive throws safely, apply and escape locks, manipulate joints, control an opponent’s balance, strike quickly and effectively, activate nerves, take advantage of vital points, and use and defend against weapons. This course is physically demanding and will require regular attendance and conditioning for progression. The class is open to all members of the community age 16 and older.
