What is Tsun Jo®?

Tsun Jo® is a strategy based fighting method designed for survival self defense.  It makes the most of what an individual has in order to prevail in a conflict. The moves are clear, direct and fit very well together to create a highly efficient and adaptable self-defense fighting method. 


Tsun Jo® uses rapid fire straight punching as well as hooks, uppercuts and elbow strikes, low kicks and knee strikes. At close range pressure control is used to limit and control the opponent's balance to gain advantage. The art incorporates joint locking, choking, sticking and trapping.


Because the Tsun Jo® relies on efficient movement, leverage, and clear decision-making, it is a method that works well for small or large people, male or female. Tsun Jo® is primarily an empty hand method of fighting although understanding the use of clubs, knives and firearms is also an important aspect of skill development. Additionally, the training is useful as a method of physical conditioning.

In Tsun Jo® schools, students are courteous and train safely. Instructors treat students with respect and work closely with them to ensure they are making progress and developing the skills intended. Proper interaction with training partners can serve as a model for positive participation within the larger human community.



Tsun Jo® training produces rapid results for the absolute best in self defense.
