Wabujitsu™ was designed with the common person in mind.  Self-defense training should be accessible and easy for ALL types of people to learn, regardless of your current fitness level, age, or gender.  

Our Program
We provide some of the most outstanding instruction in the Tampa Bay, Florida area (Sarasota, Brandon, and Valrico) and the Los Angeles, California area at one of the most reasonable tuition rates to be found anywhere.  Our seminars are demanded on a regular basis from coast-to-coast, and we also host seminars for instructors from around the world.  Topics include the following: Rape Defensive Techniques (standing, sitting and laying down), Advanced Close Quarter Combat Techniques, Weapons Encounters and Multiple Attacker Scenarios.

Our goal is to provide realistic training, in a safe non-threatening atmosphere, to anyone who chooses to attend.  Our program has been extraordinarily successful for a very diverse group of people, from totally inexperienced students to experts in other disciplines, from children to adults, the physically fit to the handicapped.

While working on this goal, we insist that the students and instructors do not neglect some very important aspects of our training program:  building mutual respect for our peers, building personal respect, and most importantly, having fun while learning!!

What It Is and What to Expect
™ is a system of Ju-Jitsu recognized and accepted by the United States Ju-Jitsu Federation (USJJF), the National Governing Body of Ju-Jitsu in the United States for the Ju-Jitsu International Federation (JJIF).  It is a dynamic system of combat and self-defense that allows the practitioner to learn common-sense, SIMPLE and direct methods to avoid and/or survive a violent encounter.  It consists of impact techniques (such as punches and kicks), controlling techniques (such as joint locks), throwing techniques, and ground-fighting techniques.  It is presented with strategy and tactics that makes sense within a modern context.  Adult students are also taught other options of a more combative nature.

The new student can expect a very friendly and helpful environment.  New students are introduced to easy yet effective techniques that can be used immediately in a self-defense situation.  A basic framework of strategy and tactics is taught along with the techniques.  The student is gently guided along a training path that, over time, slowly increases the physical and mental challenges thus increasing skill and confidence.  Ultimately the student learns to respond in a free-form way with confidence and devastating effectiveness, in spite of the high stress of a real attack.

The new student also needs to realize that nothing good will come easy.  Any type of self-defense training will involve perseverance, dedication, and an open mind.  We are serious about our training, but we have serious FUN while training!
