Scientific, Street-Smart Self-Defense!
JU SHIN DO is a scientific, street-smart approach to self-defense.  Fast and flowing, it is more of a martial science than a martial art. Our unique and integrated training methodology bridges the connection between martial arts and self-defense by focusing on concepts and principles rather than just techniques.  
The name Ju Shin Do can be defined this way:
"JU"- In the martial arts, ju means "gentle". You may have heard of martial arts like Ju-Do or Ju-Jitsu.  These arts typically focus more on take downs, throws, and control techniques rather than punching and kicking, so they tend to be looked at as more of a gentle (yet extremely effective) approach to practicing martial arts and self-defense.
"SHIN"- In Japanese, shin means "heart". Combined, Ju and Shin acknowledge the fact that "Jujitsu" is the "heart" of the system we teach.  While Ju Shin Do adapts and integrates techniques, principles, and concepts from a number of martial arts and self-defense systems, the locking and control techniques of Jujitsu are still at the "heart" of the system.  Shin in Chinese means "new", and Ju Shin Do is truly a new and unique approach to martial arts and self-defense. 
"Do"- In simplest terms, Do means "way" or "method". So, Ju Shin Do may be translated as "A New Method of Jujitsu".    

Ju Shin Do has adapted and integrated elements from a number of martial arts and self-defense systems, with the primary influences including:

  • The Filipino Martial Arts

  • Panantukan

  • Jeet Kune Do

  • Wing Chun

  • Small Circle Jujitsu

  • KAPAP/Krav Maga

  • and MORE!

Ju Shin Do is a fast, flowing, and furious approach to martial arts and self-defense. The system utilizes flow, motion, movement, and the body's natural responses for effective close quarter self-defense and take down and control techniques rather than the punching and kicking seen in most of the "traditional" and competitive-style martial arts schools today. Ju Shin Do is a complete and comprehensive approach to martial arts and self-defense.

Ju Shin is truly a system of scientific, street-smart self-defense. Having been taught to members of the US military, law enforcement, security, bouncers, and civilians, it is an ideal system for men, women, and students, regardless of size or strength.
