Jiu Jitsu A Legacy…

There is some history behind everything, some historical facts are worth remembering and some are just to average to be remembered. Historically, people used to invent things on their own (in order to survive, in order to live and in order to make things easier for themselves). Later on when the era changed, future generations worked on everything in order to make things better and feasible for all. Previously, they used to defend themselves by making swords and spears with the help of woods (wooden sharp knives) and so much more has been introduced by all of them who are no more in existence. Anyways, there were people who were so brave that they used to live in caves and they used to combat with animals bare hands, imagine fighting with a bear with bare hands. Certainly, when we say they used to fight with bare hands obviously led things towards a discussion of “how they did that” killing somebody with bare hands require some serious skills and techniques.

Fighting styles originated from that era, judo, karate, aikido, boxing, wrestling and jiu jitsu. Some fighting styles are so famous that we all are aware of it, but there are some fighting styles which are not that famous or well known ‘jiu jitsu’ is one among those.

If we research some history of this fighting style, we can see that the Judo/Jiu Jitsu School in Brazil was opened in 1909, there were number of student passed out as a master, Maeda was one among them. For those who has not heard about the word Kimono, which means the ring of the Jiu Jitsu (Just like the wrestling ring is called a RING) this ring is known as Kimono. In real the ring is quite different from other fighting styles, Jiu Jitsu ring is like a round mat with different colors usually, blue in the centre ( which denotes the area for fighting) then comes the yellow and then red (beyond which lies the disqualification of the fighter).
