Welcome to TnT JuJitsu in Houston, TX.
We are Houston's premier dojo for Traditional "Nihon" Ju-Jitsu. The art of Ju-Jitsu, the Gentle Art, is a self defense martial art system which enables the practitioner to defend oneself either standing or on the ground. We incorporate various strikes to specific parts of the body, along with joint locks, chokes, throwing and immobilization techniques. Jujitsu also teaches a wide range of weapon techniques.
We teach more than just kicking, punching, joint locks, and throwing. We teach life skills through respect in the body, strength in the mind, and spirit in the heart. That’s what makes us today's Bushido warriors.
"Jū" can be translated to mean "gentle, soft, supple, flexible, pliable, or yielding". "Jitsu" can be translated to mean "art" or "technique" and represents manipulating the opponent's force against themselves rather than confronting it with one's own force. Jujitsu developed to combat the samurai of feudal Japan as a method for defeating an armed and armored opponent in which one uses no weapon, or only a short weapon. Because striking against an armored opponent proved ineffective, practitioners learned that the most efficient methods for neutralizing an enemy took the form of pins, joint locks, and throws. These techniques were developed around the principle of using an attacker's energy against him, rather than directly opposing it.
