Jiujitsu promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique, taking the fight to the ground – most notably by applying joint-locks and choke holds to defeat the other person. 

Jiujitsu training can be used for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self-defense. Sparring (commonly referred to as "rolling") and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition, in relation to progress and ascension through its ranking system. Following tradition, Mr. Michael Townsend teaches the fundamentals necessary to learn and achieve the art of Jiujitsu. 

Jiujitsu is a great complement to traditional Martial Arts taught at United Kempo Karate Schools.  While traditional Chinese Kempo focuses on punching, kicking, joint locks, and other techniques used while fighting upright, Jiujitsu continues the fight once it reaches the ground.  Paired together in a training package, you and/or your child will learn to fight in all situations.

Classes are on Mondays and Thursdays at 7 PM
