Editorial Reviews:

Jujitsu is a complete art, combining no-nonsense striking skills with highly effective grappling techniques. In this first of two DVDs, instructor James Kodzis teaches a blend of the essential techniques of modern and traditional * jujitsu with an emphasis on technical precision.

Begin from the fundamentals of stance, movement and breakfalling then quickly move into learning the stand-up skills of jujitsu: punching, elbow strikes, knee strikes and stomp kicks. Once you have a solid understanding of applying and defending against the stand-up game, you will learn the keys to an effective grappling arsenal including:

* Closing the distance for a takedown
* Clinching defensively
* Takedowns and sweeps
* Using the sprawl
* Transitioning on the ground
* Escapes
* Defenses against striking on the ground
* Passing the guard

Most importantly, Instructor James Kodzis teaches you how to attain and defend against these fundamental jujitsu positions:

* Side Mount
* Mount
* North/South
* Back Mount
* Open Guard
* Closed Guard
* Half Guard
* Total Holddown
* Knee on Stomach

Each position is explained and demonstrated for numerous angles followed by the demonstration of a number of defenses to the position. Simple, direct, easy to understand instruction allows you to follow along with a partner, practicing attack and defense drills for each hold as you learn. With a background in both law enforcement and martial arts, James Kodzis has created a jujitsu program that will benefit jujitsu students and instructors as well as law enforcement and security personnel.
