    What is Tai Jutsu?

    Well, I think you are going to be sorry you asked that question:
    As a mixed martial art, we train our students in many ways. From stretching and relaxation techniques, including Tai Chi and Qui Gong, through Kickboxing and free sparring techniques appropriate to competitions, or Ju-Jutsu for use in self defence, all the way to using weapons such as Nunchukus, Boís or Bokkens (we donít tend to use real swords, as they can make quite a mess - of the opponent).
    Apparantly they think it is a combination of Tai Chi and Ju-Jutsu.

    Unfortunately for them they didnt really do their research when they made up their name. "Tai Jutus" translates as "Body Movement" and is usually associated with the Bujinkan (the Ninja guys) under Hatsumi.

    I hate to admit it, but my sensei has started doing this. They've had a couple of kids groups. They seemed to have a good time. It's one the biggest McDojo things my dojo does. However, when you have a small student count and you have to pay for some pretty expensive mat space, sometimes selling your soul keeps you in the game for a bit. My official statement is that I was against it from the beginning, but it's not my name on the lease.

    A little bit of McDojo can make the money that makes the difference between the doors being closed and the doors being open.

    I for one dont mind kids classes that are fun for the kids to attend (especially when they still learn something), and I like Christmass parties.

    If it gets them involved without creating a whole mess of false expectations and distortions (e.g. a samurai sword in a school that doesn't teach live swordwork), then there's nothing wrong with it. Quite a few of the blokes in my Judo dojo started as kids, and it seems to have endured in a healthy fashion.

    During the next half hour, the kids will enjoy their food and drink followed by your child leading the cake cutting ceremony. Your child will assist the instructor in cutting the cake with a Samurai sword!
    And folks, that is exactly what "Samurai" swords were invented for, and the proper use for them today. Why Old Musashi himself said, in a secret newly found chapter of the book of five rings, "Forget everything i ever said about the Way, The Way is found in using your soul...I mean your samurai sword to cut cake."

    In the West Taijutsu is usually associated with Hatsumi's Budo Taijutsu, However, in Japan many Ryu-Ha use Jujutsu and Taijutsu interchangably. For example Daito Ryu is an Aikijujutsu however its sister art Asayama Ichiden Ryu is a Taijutsu. However, their arts look very similar.
