Jujitsu - training

The majority of the techniques has japanese names, or numbers, which are also teached during the training sessions. On the one hand this renders the possibilty to communicate techniques on an international level (e.g. international seminars) and on the other hand, it provides the opportunity to learn individual techniques more easily, by giving them names.  

For beginners it is advisable to start the training with a training partner of the same weight, size and belt grade (if this is possible).

In the beginning it is important to learn some basic movements, in order to avoid injuries. Generally, each student should concentrate on the technical aspect of Jujitsu. It is the wrong way, if you try to perform the large amount of techniques with to much force, exclusively. Furthermore it is important to train with your partner, not against her or him (feedback is always preferable).

To use to much force in the training (especially within the Kawaishi Ryu) is a great mistake. It is always a sign of lacking technique, if someone tries to apply a specific technique by force.  

Countless repetitions are the key for precising.

If you like, you can also use mental training at home.

Jujitsu - grades (belts)

There are 6 Kyu-grades / belts (student-grades) in the colours white (6. Kyu, beginners), yellow (5. Kyu), orange (4. Kyu), green (3. Kyu), blue (2. Kyu) and brown (1. Kyu), followed by 10 Dan-grades (black belts, master-grades). After the 1. Kyu follows the 1. Dan, then the 2. Dan and so on. At official occasions owners of the 6. and 7. Dan wear a red-white belt, owners of the 8. and 9. Dan wear a red belt and owners of the 10. Dan wear a white belt, doubled in width.

From the 5. Kyu until the 6. Dan, grades are achieved via belt exams. For Dan-examinations an official invitiation is required. From the 7. Dan forward grades are achieved via promotion. If you are interested to gain a black belt in Jujitsu, 4 to 5 years of intensive and consistent training are required.

To be admitted for a belt exam, you need to be a member of our association (SHOBUKAI AUSTRIA). You will find an overview of our membership fee here.
