QUESTION: What is the "principle and concepts approach" to learning Jujitsu?
ANSWER: Reality dictates that it is the principles and concepts of anatomical physics that make any technique work. If any technique is not based on sound scientific principles of anatomical physics, the technique won't work. It's that simple. We take the time to teach each student exactly "how" and "why" each technique works. In this way, a person can apply a series of twenty-five principles and concepts to any particular situation, rather than trying to remember thousands of techniques.
