History[ edit ] Jigoro Kano sent many of his students outside Japan to demonstrate and teach judo. After an equally long trip across North America and Europe , the second student Kawaishi finally settled in France in where he started to teach Jujitsu to the French Law Enforcement Authorities and to a limited number of students, later supported by his assistant Shozo Awazu. Bernard and Daniel Pariset were among his students. The Gracie family is performing a similar return to its roots by focusing more and more its teaching on Gracie self-defence as originally practised by Maeda. Bernard Pariset died in just before he could be made 10th Dan alongside his long-standing friend and Judo partner Henri Courtine. This title however is not officially recognized by the Kodokan.

The purpose of jujutsu was to disarm the opponent and use their own weapon against them. As such, strikes to the body were limited as the intended victim would have been wearing extensive body armour. However, in later styles of jujutsu from Edo-period Japan empty-handed strikes to the body became more common as full-scale military engagement began to decline.
