How to Block Jujitsu

Jujitsu, both Brazilian and traditional Japanese style, is a martial art based on takedowns, throws, locks, holds and ground-fighting. Both Japanese and Brazilian jujitsu arguably have more in common with Western-style wrestling than they do with most martial arts. Most martial arts are based on stand-up, striking techniques and involve the exchange of blows between two fighters who are squared off on their feet. However, a good stand-up striker can lose his advantage if he is taken down by a skilled jujitsu practitioner. Therefore, blocking jujitsu is largely a matter of keeping your feet on the ground.

Skill level:Moderately Challenging

Instructions

1 Develop strong, wide fighting stances. Having a broader stance makes it harder for you to be knocked off balance and taken down to the ground. You can strengthen your fighting stances such as the forward stance and the horse stance by devoting part of your workout to remaining in your stances for several minutes until you feel a burn in your muscles.

2 Work on your footwork. Like a strong stance, good footwork can help you to remain on your feet. With good footwork you can reposition yourself to avoid sweeps, trips and other takedowns that can result in putting you in the last place you want to be against a jujitsu fighter: on the ground.

3 Strike first, strike fast and strike decisively. By landing the first blow, you can neutralise or reduce the threat presented by jujitsu fighters. Jujitsu training offers very little in the way of stand-up striking, such as kicks or punches. Therefore, it's best to press your attack immediately while you hold the advantage of being on your feet. If you can deliver a knockout blow quickly, you can effectively block a jujitsu fighter before he can get a hold of you.

4 Work to increase your flexibility. Jujitsu, particularly the Brazilian version, employs a number of arm bars, joint locks and other painful holds. Developing increased flexibility can allow you to give in to these holds to a degree and buy you enough time to deliver a strike or launch a counterattack against your opponent.

Tips and warnings

To be a well-rounded martial artist, you should try to know a little bit of everything. Therefore, you might want to study up on some basic ground-fighting technique. That way if you are taken down, you can launch a counterattack that at the least could buy you enough time to get back on your feet.

If you are taken down by a jujitsu fighter, don't let him get on top of you. If such a fighter does mount you, not only will it be much harder to regain your footing and strike him with a kick or a punch, but it will also be easier for him to unleash the infamous Brazilian jujitsu "ground and pound" in which an opponent is pinned to the ground and struck by fists and elbows until he taps out or yields.
