demos on this website, and this page represents a video sample (.avi) of techniques by
Hand and kicking techniques in Jujitsu are usually a means to an end,
and not the end result themselves.  James likes to refer to them as
"entry ways to Jujitsu," where locks, sweeps or throws may be
applied.  For those unfamiliar with Jujitsu, note how the techniques
emphasize multiple strikes and controlling the opponent all the way to
the ground, whenever possible.
