The continuous classes allow the student to progress in the learning of Yawara-Jitsu under the supervision of his teacher in a methodical and pedagogical way.
The training is progressive. There are clases in Madrid and in the rest of Spain.
The student learns to defend himself against aggressions from the front, first with one hand and than with two hands. The difficulty increases little by little. After that aggressions from the side with one or two hands. The following step is to learn to defend oneself against aggressions from behind with one or two hands. In each position techniques are learned against grips, blows and weapons, standing up or from the ground and specific techniques against attempt of violation. Also the use of common objects like pens, umbrellas, short sticks or kubotans will be learned as a way to defend oneself. Almost every object can be used as a weapon.
The student must demand that his teacher is authorized to give classes of Yawara-Jitsu, with the corresponding degree and in an, by the federation authorized, club. He also must also be in the possession of the federal annual license, that states his education received and belts or ranks.
The minimum time established to be able to be examined for the yellow belt is 3 months. For the orange belt, the minimum time is 4 months. For the green belt it is 6 months. For the blue belt it is 8 months. In order to obtain the brown belt 10 months needed. And finally one can be examined for the black belt after 12 months of practice with the brown belt. We are speaking of practice period, not of natural months. The months or periods in which the student hasn’t attended classes, don’t count as practice period. So, at least four years are necessary to be able to be examined for the black belt.
The minimum time needed before one can be examined for the black belt second dan is two years of practice with the first dan. Three years for the third dan and so on.
Black belts of Yawara-Jitsu cannot give classes, before they have passed the teachers exam (theoretical and practical).
