Notes about Rishin Kan Jujutsu
The purpose of Rishin Kan techniques is to teach the student to have optimal posture, balance and correct use of the centreline. That way, when they are pressed in battle those things are second nature and muscle memory kicks in.
It is not unlike the drills the army use to dismantle and reassemble a weapon in the shortest possible time. This is achieved by maximising the efficiency of every action. This is a drill (kata) that is precise, beautiful and spellbinding to watch. Yet its purpose is to create a muscle memory that kicks-in in time of stress.
This is not to say that self-defence techniques that are not optimised for posture, balance and centreline will not work but employing these optimising techniques will give all students a sharper edge. If you are strong, fast and your body is quite rigid you may not see (feel) the direct benefits in correcting posture, balance or centreline. However less able students and females defending against stronger male aggressors would benefit from these techniques.
Living in a civilised society we do not have the constant threat of battle to hone us naturally. Our minds are not consumed by survival when leaving the safety of your home. If you were in that situation you would naturally adapt and adopt the principles of optimal posture, balance and centreline (if you lived that long), not unlike Miyamoto Musashi (famous swordsman) did in feudal Japan.
Rishin Kan Jujutsu is not just a group of techniques randomly put together but rather it is a systemised path to better understand body mechanics and optimising opportunities for follow-on or counter attacks. These fundamentals are designed to become the cornerstone of the student’s self-defence techniques. Our self-defence section is where the students are pressure tested and get to apply the theories learnt in more “modern day” realistic scenarios.
