JUJITSU: ADVANCED TECHNIQUES FOR REDIRECTING AN OPPONENT’S ENERGY #BBE 530 , © 2015 Learn to use the momentum of an attack to your advantage.
“In the history of the martial arts, there have been many famous performers, but only a few really outstanding teachers. George Kirby’s many books and videos on jujitsu have taken the art to a vast audience that no mere dojo could contain. This latest volume presents the parts of jujutsu that are hardest to learn because they are the hardest to see — the skills of unbalancing and energy flow that seemingly exist more in the mental world than the physical one, but become easier to perceive and apply as a result of this book. Highly recommended!” —Bruce D. Clayton, author, Shotokan’s Secret
George Kirby’s latest offering from Black Belt Books, Jujitsu: Advanced Techniques for Redirecting an Opponent’s Energy, addresses the theory and application of how to redirect the momentum and energy of an opponent’s attack. Whether you are a student of jujitsu, aikido, judo, karate or any other martial art, this is a must-have book for helping you connect the dots between concepts and actions. Through extensive discussions and detailed photographs and diagrams, Kirby, a 10th-degree black belt who has taught jujitsu since 1967, describes the following:· how to apply circular movement, balance and momentum to execute martial arts techniques quickly and effectively with minimal effort· how to maintain your saiki tanden (center) in an attack· how to use an attacker’s momentum against him in devastating fashion through appropriate application of his and your ki (energy) and kuzushi (off-balancing) and so much more!208 pages
