Frequently Asked Questions

Q Which martial art is best for me?

A. That is difficult to say. It is someones personal choice. But in reality it seems that  from the martial arts we teach, Aikido is favourite with females, together with Aiki Jujitsu. But in all three, Aikido, Aiki Jujitsu and Ju Jitsu, I have incorparated Kyusho Jitsu and Dim Mak, which is the arts of pressure point fighting. Combined with this it makes the techniques more effective, especial for females. But best is to try all and then make your choice, or even practice two of them.
