Relation between Jujitsu, Yoga and Massage:

Jujitsu and Massage complement each other and have equivalents in Chinese philosophy which states that Jujitsu is Yang (strong component) and Massage is Yin (soft component). These two components are like two sides of the same coin. Combined they are the one piece, which is called Tao. The concept of Yang and Yin is fundamental to an understanding of Chinese philosophy and medicine.



EXAMPLE OF TAO ELEMENTS RELATIONSHIP:
YANG element   YIN element = TAO
Jujitsu                 Massage
Fire                       Water
Sun                       Moon
Day                       Night
Outside                Inside
Strong                  Soft

 TAO - BALANCE
Tao balance yang-yin
Yang and Yin constantly interact, never existing in absolute stasis.  Everything has both yang and yin aspects, although Yang or Yin elements may manifest more strongly in different objects or at different times.

  • Jujitsu is strong (Yang), but in the same time requires great sensitivity (Yin).

  • Massage requires great sensitivity (Yin), but sometimes has to use more obvious methods (Yang).

  • Yoga is another great way to achieve balance in our life. It also includes Yang and Yin resulting in components of Tao.

The art of Jujitsu, Yoga and Massage have a lot in common, and each share the same goal; to find balance in the mind and body.
Balance=Jujitsu, massage, yoga
Overcome life’s obstacles with a strong body and mind. 
The road to health starts with a single step.
