Unlike most other martial arts, Jujitsu is not limited to one aspect of self defense. It includes striking techniques, such as kicks, punches, elbow strikes and knees, throwing and grappling techniques similar to Judo, as well as many other types of techniques. Jujitsu is a complete system of self defense. Many common street self defense situations will be covered in this class.
Jujitsu meets from 6:00-8:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays in HPER Court B (Climbing Room). The class is run by Ed McCall; a Nidan in Shingitai Jujitsu and Shodan in Judo, and Dan McMillian; a Shodan in Shingitai Jujitsu.
A beginner's credit class is offered to UT students during the fall and spring semesters. You must be a student enrolled in classes at UT to register for the class.
The instructors are not paid for their time, however, club dues are collected to provide for such items as mats and travel expenses. Dues are $45 per semester (Fall, Spring, and Summer) and are due at the beginning of each semester. Payment of dues entitles you to participate in all other classes at no additional charge.
To participate in the club or the class, players will also be required to purchase a gi (the standard jujitsu uniform). Cost varies depending on the size and style of the gi you choose to purchase.
Guests are welcome to attend two classes before paying dues and purchasing a gi.
