Pacific Judo & Ju Jitsu Academy was founded in San Jose, CA in 1949, making it one of the oldest martial arts schools in the nation. We specialize in the following martial arts:
Ju Jitsu – One of the most effective systems of unarmed combat. It includes blocks, strikes & kicks, throws & sweeps, joint dislocating techniques, pressure points, grappling and strangles…
Judo – A fun and combative sport (part of the Olympic games) with rules in the interest of safety and fairness but also useful for self-defense.
Bokendo – This is basically a 40″ long wooden staff. Its power against an attacker makes this a devastating weapon of self-defense!
Keibo – This 26″ “police baton” can be made of hardwood, a metal alloy or polymer material. The newer designs include the expandable steel baton… it‘s fast and effective!
Yawarabo – The nerve pressure stick fits in the palm of the hand and is one of the most painful weapons in the martial arts arsenal.
We also train in defense against knives, guns and other common objects used as weapons by attackers.
