With big changes in society in 1883 the Tokyo police department employed Jujitsu masters to teach policemen, and this brought about a renaissance of the art. The Ninja incorporates Jujitsu into their training methods. The founders of Akido and Shorinji Kempo were both Ju-Jitsu masters and one of the founders of the four major schools of Karate was founded by a Ju-Jitsu master and of course Jigoro Kano, the founder of Judo, was a Jujitsu master. Most martial arts have roots that have derived from Jujitsu.

Jujitsu is a martial art but is also a way of life. Jujitsu goes beyond the application of chokes, joint locks, throws and strikes. Jujitsu philosophy prepares men, women and children in mind, body and spirit. The development of the human being, rather than just the refining of physical techniques are the outcomes of instruction. Jujitsu is the oldest and most complete martial art in existence. Literally, the word “jujitsu” can be translated as the art of flexibility, or gaining victory by yielding.
Ju-Jitsu History
Ju-Jitsu History
There are many viewpoints on where and how Ju-Jitsu began based on our research. Jujitsu was systematised in Japan at the end of the 16th century and its development continued until the end of the 19th century. In the late 1800’s Japan's feudal system collapsed. Old cultural and social systems disappeared and were replaced by new systems and cultures from foreign countries. The Samurai and the practice of Jujitsu largely disappeared from Japanese culture during that period, however a few people still continued to study it underground.
