American Jiu-Jitsu Self Defense @ MIT
Sensei David Dunmeyer
No enrollment limit, no advance sign up
Participants welcome at individual sessions (series)
Prereq: No experience necessary

American Jiu-Jitsu Club is in its 10th year here at MIT. We learn and practice self-defense. Jiu-Jitsu, or the Gentle Art, consists of a wide variety of techniques, relying on flexible response and the use of an attacker's own energy. Jiu-Jitsu prepares a person for any situation, including stand-up and ground fighting, knife attacks, and multiple attacks. Jiu-Jitsu brings mind, body, and spirit together, and teaches one how to avoid fighting and how to interact better with people in everyday life. It is the development of a strong spirit which makes one a true martial artist.

Krav Maga, Hebrew for "contact combat" is a style of self defense developed and employed by the Israeli military. In addition to its integral role in the education and training of the Israeli military, there are now KM centers in every major city and many smaller cities across the United States and it is frequently taught to police officers and security personnel in this country. Krav maga techniques make use of the body's own natural reflexive responses to various scenarios, so they are comparatively easy to learn, and very effective in practice.

The sword is an integral part of Japanese history. Before the mid-eighteenth century, the Samurai used real blades (shinken) or a wooden sword (boken or bokuto) to practice their sword skills. In the mid-eighteen century, Nakanishi Chuta created the bamboo practice sword (Shinai), allowing the swordsman to execute a full blow without fear of causing an injury. Kendo has remained fundamentally unchanged since then. Today, Kendo is a sport practiced by thousands of people around the world. It emphasizes on developing the mind, body, and spirit together. It also promotes strategic thinking, respect, discipline, and honor, traits that have made the Samurai peerless warriors. No previous experience required!!!
