Aiki ju jutsu is traditional japanese martinal art which emphasizes “an early neutralization of an attack”. It emphasizes throwing techniques and joint manipulations to effectively subdue or injure an attacker. Of particular importance is the timing of a defensive technique either to blend or to neutralize an attack’s effectiveness and to use the force of the attacker’s movement against him.

Aiki ju jutsu is trained in the Czech Republic under the direct guidance of the Grand Master and under the guidance of foreign teachers. Teaching in the Olomouc dojo is led by sensei Filip Manek and Štěpán Tylich.
