Jiu Jitsu originated in the early Samurai period in Japan for warriors to protect themselves when unarmed. Over 1,000+ years of existence, many styles and splinter groups of Jiu Jitsu formed. In the 20th century Jiu Jitsu was modernized into Judo and Aikido. In Westchester, tremendous variety exists among the styles, from Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (MMA fame) emphasizing groundwork to Daito Ryu Aiki Jujitsu more closely resembling Aikido. Jiu Jitsu tends to focus on destructive technique first, minimal use of katas, and sometimes uses competition. Weapons practice may or may not be involved and exercise tends to be aerobic.
