Jujutsu 101 – Distance Drilling

Jujutsu 101 is all about YOU being in CONTROL of your self-defense improvement.  It is deeply about improving your skills in applying the science of leverage for self-defense purposes.  It is also about improving your coaching skills.  Whether you work out by yourself or with others it is vital to personally learn excellent coaching skills.

In this video we will be looking at how to work a bit on your distancing skills, which is very important in self-defense.  We are taking a punch as the situation.  Of course you could use another self-defense situation.  Take your time and do all the drills.

There really is a lot of potential gain here, so take your time and start slow before you try going jet fast.  There is no use going crazy fast when you are off-balance and open to a lot of attacks from the opponent.

Think of juggling.  Let’s say your goal was to be pretty good at juggling 3 balls.  You would not start out by juggling as fast as you can.  You would just end up dropping all the balls.  Instead, start slow and build up your control.  Work on improving gradually your balance and timing.  After you felt your control was pretty good at the current slow speed with (for example) 2 balls, then you would do the drill with 3 balls.  Eventually you would be working up to pretty impressive speeds.  In other words you PROGRESSIVELY develop this skill.

As your control improves then increase the drill intensity.  If you get over your head (too much) then cut back the intensity a bit until that lower level of intensity is under YOUR control.  Then, at that point, increase the intensity.

Anyway, take your time and work at this video.  You will be glad you did.  You CAN do it.

Thanks for your time and remember to always train safe.
