  • noun:
    • Variant of jujitsu.
    • alternate spelling of jujitsu.
    • The Japanese art of self-defense without weapons, now widely used as a system of real education. This will depend because of its effectiveness largely upon the concept of creating smart usage of an opponent's strength, body weight, and moves to disable or injure him, by applying stress to ensure that his opposing movement will throw him out of balance, dislocate or break a joint, etc. It opposes understanding and ability to brute power, and demands an extensive useful knowledge of human anatomy.
    • a technique of self-defense without weapons that was developed in China and Japan; holds and blows are supplemented by clever use of the attacker's own fat and energy
