Jujitsu is a name used for Japanese martial arts techniques.  The meaning of this word is the “art of softness” or “way of yielding”.  Jujitsu came from Japan as a way of defeat of an opponent without using any weapons.  Since hitting the opponent didn’t do much justice, they would be attacked with pins and throws.  This worked against the attacker’s energy.
There are different ways that people do jujitsu.  Some of the techniques used include, holds, throwing, trapping, biting, gouging, striking and kicking.  At one time, there were self-defense schools that taught their students how to use weapons, but that is no longer the case. 
Jujitsu is practiced all over the world, including being used in sport form.  It has been used in the Olympic Games competitions.       
Other methods of combat with jujitsu include:

	Striking (kicking and punching)

	Throwing (body throws)

	Restraining (pinning, wrestling)

	Defense moves (evading, blocking, escaping)

Sport jujitsu has many forms.  One of the most popular is judo, which has been implemented into the Olympic Games.  Mixed-style competitions are the ones that are most seen at these Games.  With these competitions, there are throws, strikes and holds in order for the competitors to get points. 
Kata competitions, which is where competitors use techniques of the same style and get graded for how well they perform.  You will also find freestyle games where the competitors go after each other.  The defenders are graded on how well they perform.
With the jujitsu system, there is more attention paid to pinning, throwing, choking and strangling techniques.  This is different than other systems of martial arts like karate.  Even though jujitsu is originally a Japanese system, there are some jujitsu schools that use some Chinese moves.   
The danger of jujitsu is that with training, some of the moves can be fatal.  Students that have jujitsu classes are usually taught in an environment that is not competitive.  Because of that, there is not a lot of risk. 
With jujitsu, you will find five main sectors, otherwise known as the arts of training.  The five sectors are:

    Stand-up paddleboarding is the fastest growing watersport in the world - with only a little knowledge and practice, pretty much anyone can get up and get moving, and then there's no limit to where SUP can take you. This complete guide gives you everything you need to know to get started, and much more besides. 
    All the basics are here, from fundamental equipment (a guide to boards, including bargain-priced inflatables, as well as paddles, clothing and simple safety gear) to essential techniques (getting on, getting moving and, just as importantly, landing and getting off). Along with challenges and games to play with your new paddleboarding buddies, the book explores places to go and things to see, from rivers and canals to coastlines and travel further afield. The book also explains all the important stuff you might need to understand about weather, tides, waves and currents. 
    However, The Paddleboard Bible then goes much further. It will take you on paddleboard adventures, from night paddles (showing you the world from the water in a way you've probably never seen it before) to wildlife-spotting safaris and unique photography opportunities; it even reveals the benefits of fishing from a paddleboard. And it's not all gentle stuff – for adrenaline junkies there is SUP surfing, riding white water rapids and for the more competitive types, SUP racing. 
    SUP is also great for fitness (you haven't done yoga until you've done SUP yoga) and there's a booming social side too. It's a fantastic way to meet new people, join groups, go to events and go on unique tours. 
    However you want to get into stand-up paddleboarding, whether you're curious about trying it one afternoon, want to dive into it as a new hobby or really get involved in the scene and the lifestyle, then The Paddleboard Bible is the one-stop book that covers everything you need to know about the most accessible and inexpensive paddlesport.

    Take Time for Paradise -...

    A philosophical musing on sports and play, this wholly inspiring and  
    utterly charming reissue of Bart Giamatti's long-out-of-print final  
    book, Take Time for Paradise, puts baseball in the context of  
    American life and leisure. Giamatti begins with the conviction that our  
    use of free time tells us something about who we are. He explores the  
    concepts of leisure, American-style. And in baseball, the quintessential 
     American game, he finds its ultimate expression. "Sports and leisure  
    are our reiteration of the hunger for paradise- for freedom  
    untrammeled." Filled with pithy truths about such resonant subjects as  
    ritual, self-betterment, faith, home, and community, Take Time for Paradise 
     gives us much more than just baseball. These final, eloquent thoughts  
    of "the philosopher king of baseball" (Seattle Weekly) are a joyful,  
    reverent celebration of the sport Giamatti loved and the country that  
    created it.

    “The variety of dishes that Huck and Young present as possibilities for preparing and cooking outdoors is rather astounding and pleasantly surprising” (Epicurious).   Camping fare typically includes burgers and hot dogs, and while these are certainly easy, get ready to rethink the cuisine that can be savored over the open flame. With recipes like Spiced Currant Cream Scones, Maple-Glazed Wild Salmon, and Tomato Tarte Tatin, Huck and Young celebrate delicious food and the great outdoors. They also include step-by-step instructions for activities such as stargazing, foraging for woodland berries, and minding one’s fruits of the sea (or, how to clean a fish). Campfire Cookery proves that the campfire cannot only be a blissful escape but a true culinary destination.   “It is the rare cookbook that has even the camping-averse actually contemplating a weekend of mosquitoes and sweaty sleeping bags  . . . But really, we simply love the recipes.” —LA Weekly

    Dorothee Haering is a photographer and owner of the graphics and marketing agency "bildhaft", in Munich, Germany. Golf has accompanied she from her cradle, and most of her family has the bug too. Her grandfather practiced enthusiastically on a chipping green in his garden, and her father, a successful team player, regularly took her with him on the golf course when she was a child. At the weekends she was a proud caddy and accompanied "her players" throughout the tournaments and also briefly took part in junior training. Ever since she saw Jack Niklaus play golf 1972 in Munich she knew: she wanted to become a Golf Professional. Later, life had other plans for her and there followed an involuntary golf-intermission lasting thirty-eight years until the golf addiction broke out again with a vengeance. Her goal for her (second) golf career: she wanted to "Break 80".
    In the book project "Move your Game", Dorothee Haering has gathered together the information that she would have liked to have possessed at the beginning of her own golf career. It would have made following her plan to a single handicap more efficient.
