(American Spectator) -- Do you know anything about Ju-Jitsu? It's the martial art developed by Japanese Samurai to aid a lone warrior without his weapon confronting an armed opponent. When such direct combat seems suicidal, the technique becomes to use your opponent's own weight against him rather than trying to overcome his with your own diminished force.
Jujutsu developed among the samurai of feudal Japan as a method for defeating an armed and armored opponent in which one uses no weapon, or only a short weapon. Because striking against an armored opponent proved ineffective, practitioners learned that the most efficient methods for neutralizing an enemy took the form of pins, joint locks, and throws. These techniques were developed around the principle of using an attacker's energy against him, rather than directly opposing it. (Wikipedia)
