In this comprehensive work, the author adopts a strictly non-partisan approach and presents a guide to 'a basic syllabus' for ju-jitsu. He does not examine any one particular style or syllabus formulated by a single ju-jitsu association and has written a book that will benefit all ju-jitsu students, whatever their style. Designed as a reference work for both experienced ju-jitsu practitioners and novices alike, the book provides students with a good grounding in the variety of techniques they might be expected to learn for their 'apprenticeship' - from white belt through to black belt first dan. This book: contains individual chapters on each of the belts; includes chapters on blocks, strikes and kicks, as well as throws, locks, strangles and chokes; and covers unarmed techniques, body weapons, katas and the use of some of the weapons employed in ju-jitsu, including the Katana, Bo, Nunchaka, short stick and tanto. It is extremely well illustrated with over 650 photographs.
Ken Cole is a fifth dan in ju-jitsu and has nearly thirty years' experience of the martial arts including not only ju-jitsu but also judo and aikido. He has fought at both college and national level at judo and has taught self-defence to officers in the West Midlands Police Force. Ken teaches ju-jitsu at two clubs in the Midlands and is a service police officer with the Staffordshire Police.
