Grappling and Advanced Ground Techniques

An adult student of UMAA Jujutsu will become adept at both throwing and mat or ground fighting. We use large circle and small circle grappling, throwing, pinning as well as using tuite-jitsu and kyusho-jitsu jitus striking techniques.

Jujutsu students spend many months integrated with the karate students to learn the fast footwork and stances of karate as well as the striking and blocking techniques of karate. In this way they are not at any disadvantage in standing position.

In Judo where an opponent is usually starting with or allowed to start with a lapel grip, Jujutsu students or practitioners are usually presented with a punch or kick of some type. In Judo where the practitioner usually moves about seeking to off balance or setup an opponent in order to throw or sweep them, Jujutsu practitioner's usually blend with the opponent while either blocking or avoiding the attack.

A strong physical component is stressed as well as a balanced center or calmness of self. Being able to "see' intent as well as "see" the big picture is important. Those that study under Mr. Letourneau have the unique privilege of training with someone certified in four martial arts (Karate, Judo, Jujutsu and Iaijutsu).  With this diversity he teaches a "true understanding" of combat and a "clarity of concepts" in all of the classes.
