Imagine, while training in a purple dragon dojo, a training partner lunges at you with a weapon. Automatically, you avoid the attack and sweep him off his feet. Another person comes at you from the side, throwing a punch. Without any thought, you duck the punch and deliver a kick. Before you know it, someone grabs you from behind. Instinctively, you flip him over your hip. Suddenly, the Purple Dragon Teacher says, “Yami (Stop).” Everything stops. You and your fellow students bow respectfully to each other, knowing that each attack and defense is controlled enough to teach you the most practical self-defense without hurting one another.
Through simulated situations of what could happen in real life, your Purple Dragon Teacher will teach you streetwise self-defense and a better awareness of your environment, which will prepare you for virtually any type of assault.
Don Jitsu Ryu Martial Arts promotes complete physical fitness, mental health, self-confidence, and spiritual wellness. It teaches you to effectively block and execute head, hand, elbow, knee, and foot techniques at a close, mid, and long range. If you are grabbed, you will know what to do through Don Jiu-Jitsu, which teaches you through strikes, submission holds, and joint locks. Also, by learning our Aikido method, “The way of blending your inner energy,” you will learn to use your opponent’s strength and energy to your advantage.
Combining techniques from these disciplines – Karate, Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, Kick-Fit Boxing, and Aikido – makes Purple Dragon Don Jitsu Ryu a hybrid fighting style. One of the most well-rounded, effective self-defense programs in the world.
