From Japan to Australia

JuJitsu has a very colourful history involving many twists and turns throughout many centuries, cultures and countries. Those who expanded the Martial Art by spreading JuJitsu throughout the world, found that it was difficult to teach to those who couldn’t speak Japanese. They either had to teach them Japanese or change their teaching methods.
