The term Kempo Jujutsu refers to the techniques and tactics employed by Seizan Ryu practitioners. In brief, Kempo ("striking principles") consists of sophisticated striking tactics that use the hands, feet, arms, legs, elbows, knees, and even the head to target vital points on an opponent's body. Jujutsu ("supple science") consists of efficiently blending with incoming force and makes use of nerve strikes, throws, joint locks, immobilizations, chokes, and certain handheld weaponry to disable or control an adversary. In combination, these two disciplines form a comprehensive unarmed self-defense system.
