Taijutsu is a Japanese word that translates into the English language as “skill with the body.” The fighting art of Taijutsu utilizes powerful striking skills, dynamic takedowns, effective ground fighting, and devastating finish holds. Taijutsu is a realistic, all-encompassing martial art system.


Taijutsu originated in Japan some six hundred years ago at the time of the feudal wars and being over run by a much superior force, the fore-fathers of Taijutsu retreated in to the mountains and fought a highly successful guerrilla war and in the process learned how to fight in a highly practical, but simple and effective way and finally won the war.

This was the birth of Taijutsu, and over the years unlike most other martial arts it keeps evolving to match the changes in the way people fight and what they fight with.
