Small Circle Jujitsu is based on the 2,000 year old classical jujitsu and was founded in approximately 1944 by Professor Wally Jay. Professor Jay's years of experience in classical jujitsu, judo, boxing, weightlifting, wrestling, aikido, kung fu, and other martial arts led him to develop the Small Circle Theory. His goal was to combine the best of everything he learned from the various disciplines.
SCJ is an amazing system for self defense and it's always growing and adapting to stay relevant.

We use police statistics of real-life violent encounters to develop our self-defense programs. We have done years of research gaining information from lawyers, police, and first responders to get REAL actionable information for every student that walks through our door!
Our training programs focus on using gross motor skills for self defense rather than fine motor skills. We will discuss the psychology and aftermath of a violent encounter. We will also discuss the legal side, escalation of force, situational awareness, conflict avoidance, emergency first aid and so much more.
