Gentle Lion teaches the self defense art of Budoshin Jujitsu - A Japanese style Jujitsu
Ju-jitsu is the most ancient martial art, with evidence of its existence found as far back as 2000 years ago. It encompasses most elements of more recent break-off arts such as Karate, Judo, and Aikido, among others.
Budoshin Jujitsu is not a sport. It is a form of self-defense to be used only to debilitate an attacker if need be. It is an exceptional form of self-protection which requires a great deal of control by the defender to use it effectively and only as necessary within the philosophical confines of non-violence which are also an important part of traditional martial arts systems including jujitsu.
