What is Spirit Combat?
Spirit Combat is a modern martial art based on the ancient self defence system ju-jitsu. Ju-jitsu was the system of fighting skills developed by the Samurai warriors when they found themselves without their weapons or in a situation where their weapons could not be used, such as a crowded battlefield. As the opponent was armoured, and armed, Ju-jitsu focused on the weak points of the body – chiefly the joints – and developed techniques that manipulated them to disarm and immobilise an opponent. Hence the term Ju-jitsu means the
“gentle, or supple, way.”
When Soke Brian Dossett developed Spirit Combat in 1960 he kept the framework of Ju-jitsu but included aspects of other martial arts from both east and west including aikido, judo, kickboxing, western boxing and wrestling. This synthesis has led to a modern, dynamic martial art that fuses power with harmony and trains both the mind and body.
“Use only that which works, and take it from any place you can find it”
As quoted in Bruce Lee: Fighting Spirit (1994)
