Have you ever wondered how your sensei seems to capture and redirect his opponent’s energy so effectively and effortlessly?

In Advanced Jujitsu: The Science Behind the Gentle Art, American Ju-Jitsu Association co-founder George Kirby explains how and why your sensei seems to have access to strength and energy that goes beyond his verbal explanations.

Transcending the mere memorization of kata, forms and techniques, George Kirby leads you through advanced concepts that will simplify your training and grant you deeper access to the inner workings of jujitsu. A greater understanding of the “gentle art” will allow you to learn new techniques with greater ease, speed and precision.

Through extensive discussion and detailed photographs and diagrams, George Kirby covers the following topics:
• how kata connect the mind and body
• how meditation contributes to optimum physical performance
• how to use balance against opponents to gain a tactical advantage
• how the idea of “less is more” can lead to success in all areas of your life

More than a technical manual, Advanced Jujitsu: The Science Behind the Gentle Art is a martial arts journey into the fundamentals of physics, technique, anatomy, humility and open-mindedness.
