Jiushin Ryu is not an art in itself. It is a ‘school of thought’ within the art of Jujutsu.

As a fighting style, Jiushin Ryu Jujutsu is a modern style with modern training methods, includes old school techniques and its values are embedded in ‘Budo’ (Japanese Way of Martial Arts) and ‘Butoku’ (Martial Virtues).

The syllabus is to provide a solid basis in all aspects of Jujutsu, such as: striking (Atemi Waza): punching (Tsuki) and kicking (Keri), grappling (Katame Waza), breaking balance (Kuzushi), joint locking skills (Kansetsu Waza), strangles and choking (Shime Waza), holds and pinning (Osae Waza), throws (Nage Waza), ground techniques (Ne Waza), escapes (Hazushi) and counters (Kaeshi Waza), combinations (Renraku Waza), variations (Henka Waza), basic vital and weak points (Kyusho Waza) and basic resuscitation (Kappo), correct knowledge & implications of the body using the previous mentioned and (self-defense) awareness and prevention. The student is taught the very important; distance, timing, footwork and body movement (Tai Sabaki), breathing (Kokyu), use of weight and pressure application, and use of centre.

Mudansha (A student without a Dan grade / Kyu level students) - From White Belt (7th Kyu) up to Black Belt (1st Dan) the student would have covered all the techniques of the fundamental syllabus. However, the grading structure is aimed at encouraging the trainee to focus on his/her favourite set of techniques. This means, that while the student will learn all of the techniques in the basic syllabus, he/she grades by focusing mostly on a set of techniques that are more adapted to him/herself.

Yudansha (Black Belts) - Provisional Black Belts (Shodan Ho) undergo a 1 year period of further preparation, were the students are guided to a higher technical level to become more proficient within the Art,  before attaining Shodan (1st Step / 1st Degree Black Belt). From Shodan upwards, the emphasis is on further study of escapes and counters, combination and variation techniques and research of new techniques while still drilling the basic techniques.

The emphasis of Jiushin Ryu:

- The effectiveness of technique.

- A never-ending process of evolution and refinement of skill.

- The essence, truth, high ideals of Yawara (the meaning of ‘Jiushin Ryu’).

For Jiushin Ryu students, the drilling and perfecting of the basics is essential, as is Randori (free practice / pressure testing) for the student to learn to apply the techniques in a real live situation. Jiushin Ryu is a versatile style of Jujutsu. It is a well rounded style, covering standing and ground, grappling and striking. It advocates the core principles of Koryu (old school) Jujutsu, mainly that it is first and foremost a survival art, while it explores all arts related to Jujutsu. That is to say, that while it is crucial to have a solid base in the fundamental curriculum of Jiushin Ryu, the style is a never-ending process of evolution and refinement of skill. When it comes to training, we do not say: "this is Jujutsu and that is Judo or Karate or Aiki", but explore all possible effective techniques by all means. This is real 'Budo', the Way of Martial Arts.

As a great Japanese Sensei commended the Bajada brothers: "It is good that you are eager to learn the different styles. Training should not be stylistic".

Although the style is mainly unarmed combat, it also incorporates traditional weapon arts such as Bojutsu (six-foot staff), Jojutsu (four-foot staff), Hojojutsu (the art of tying in combat), Tessenjutsu (the art using the fan in combat), Bokuto Geiko (grappling with wooden swords), Knife training (Tanto) and the use of Tanbo.

Jiushin Ryu is open for individuality. The Art is ever evolving within the practitioner in the fact that he/she is always working on improving his/her technical ability according to his self and forever learning and exploring new techniques, counters and combinations to further his/her knowledge no matter what the artist's grade is.
