I've never done a martial art before

| Print this page |

For most Jitsuka, Jitsu is the first martial art they’ve tried and in some ways, that’s an advantage to them. Since martial arts differ from each other, people who have already studied an art sometimes find they have to ‘untrain’ themselves from one behaviour and into the Jitsu way of doing things.

There’s also a different emphasis in other arts: karate is more focused on punches and kicks, judo on throwing, aikido on locks and so on. The result is that while training in another art can help with certain aspects of Jitsu, it can hinder others. However, martial arts training of any kind is always useful.
