    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    What is Nihon Jujitsu?

    There's a local dojo that teaches Kodokan Judo & Nihon Jujitsu. I emailed the instructor of the dojo and he said NJJ is basically a modern style (like Miyama-Ryu) that resembles "old school Judo."

    Has anyone studied this style?

    Thanks.

    Thanks.

    I already read that website. But have you (or anyone else in this forum) studied NJJ?

    Thanks again.

    I don't do Nihon Jujitsu. It seems like it's a generic term for any post-Meiji era self-defense jujitsu style. May as well ask the instructor to let you try it out for a few classes and see if you like it. Just pay a mat fee the first few times before financially committing to anything.

    No, Nihon translates as Japanese. Nihon-jin is a Japanese Person, Nihon Jujutsu is Japanese Jujutsu.

    Good point although I thought that was understood in the context of being "post-Meiji." Only the Japanese would refer to Japanese things and events as "post-meiji." We don't even call things "post-Teddy Roosevelt" and he was a judoka : )

    Actually, "Nihon" is simply Japan. Counters specify whether or not it's a japanese (person) or Japanese (language).
    Jujutsu=martial arts (in essence, however it's more commonly used to refer to a grappling art)
    So, if you're looking for the DEFINITION it's just Japan Martial Arts or, as we would more regularly say in english, Japanese Marital Arts.
    However, since it's used as a proper noun, I'm assuming that the instructor is making the distinction between Japanese "ju jutsu" compared to American or Brazilian "jiu jiutsu (yes I spelt it this way on purpose)."
