Soft Blocking System

The Soft Blocking System is unique within the systems of American Tactical Ju-jitsu. Each block has an evasive movement called Tai Sabaki as well as a counter-strike associated with it. In addition, the first 10 blocks in the Soft Blocking System correspond to the first 10 Ippon Kumite Kata or One-point Fighting Forms. The Ippons form the basis for the practical application of American Tactical Ju-jitsu self-defense techniques with each of the first 10 beginning with the corresponding soft block. In other words, Ippon #1 begins with Soft Block #1 and so on through #10.
