Small Circle Jujitsu, Volume 1 by Wally Jay

"Small Circle Jujitsu Volume 1 by Wally Jay

This is volume 1 of a 5 volume series of Wally Jay's Small Circle Jujitsu available on VHS or DVD. There is also a book by the same title written by Wally jay with easy to follow illustrations and text sold separately which can be used with these videos.

Wally Jay explains and demonstrates application of force used in his small circle jujitsu, which uses the physical forces of leverage in a two way torquing rotation applied against the joints of an opponent or assailant to achieve compliance through the application and control of pain.

Wally Jay lists ten principles to practice in performing Jujitsu to achieve winning results.

Wally Jay explains safety principles to the viewer to observe to protect the practice partner from injury while learning or practicing Jujitsu.

Wally Jay demonstrates sensitive pressure points of the body martial artists take advantage of in addition to the application of pressure of leverage upon joints.

Wally Jay demonstrates an arsenal of holds, wrist locks, elbow locks, arm bars, finger locks and holds. Demonstrations of moves and techniques are detailed for maximum effect. The 5 volume series of Small Circle Jujitsu is well organized and full of information. The applications of Jujitsu moves covered are credible more oriented for self defense than for competition. Anyone practicing these moves while keeping Wally Jay's 10 principles in mind should feel confident and prepared to deal with the scenarios examplified in the video. Anyone who does practice the moves and techniques demonstrated by Wally Jay with a partner should practice slowly and with care not to injure the partner since the information contained in this video has real potential for serious injury if practiced carelessly.

I think what is missing in this series is coverage on dealing with armed assailants and multiple assailants. If these things were added, the topics of self defense would seem more complete in terms of grappling solutions to assalt scenarios.

The book and the VHS or DVD series complement each other very well as excellent sources of learning. I think any serious student will be satisfied with his or her purchase.

"I totally enjoyed both dvd's . As a seasoned martial artist I found them to be excellent resource of original material. I happened to experience personally the Small Circle Jujitsu at a recent seminar by the Founder and son Prof. Wally Jay and Master Leon Jay. The whole series is a must in my most humble opinion."

"Wally Jay truly does make it all look easy! I learned new things from the very start that add power in techniques. I am an intermediate student (5th Kyu) in the Budoshin style of Ju-jitsu. My only complaint is that the techniques are demonstrated rather quickly and completely without much hesitation most times. One of the great advantages of the 8 DVD series, from white belt to shodan, put out by George Kirby, 10th dan is the slow motion photographic that allows careful examination of the techniques presented. From a purely aesthetic view, the conclusion sequence where Wally puts all the techniques together shows Ju-jitsu as an awesome ballet of control where with minimal effort you can take an attacker wherever you want to go. Truly inspiring!"

"I think this is one of the best dvd i have seen on martial art. Out of the 10 principles of small jujitsu, the best that i found was distraction. This distraction gives a weaker person an opportunity to momentorily weaken opponent's grip and later to get into a joint lock.

overall i would say that this dvd is a must for any martial artist, especially beginners or students of middle rank."
