Eizan-ryu Jujitsu is a martial art in which the student learns to use an attacker’s strength and momentum against him; this enables the smaller person to successfully defend against the attack of a larger, stronger person. A wide variety of techniques are used: strikes, throws, joint locks, foot sweeps, pins, chokes, projections, pressure points with the object being to control the attacker and put him on the ground. Ukemi is the ability to fall safely; it is taught and is strongly emphasized.
