Taiho Jutsu is the martial art of arrest, originally adopted by Japanese police forces. It is a very different system from all other martial arts, since the practitioner not only aims for his own safety, but also has to arrest his assailant. The original techniques of Taiho Jutsu are based on traditional Japanese martial arts schools, and were used for public order purposes after the unification of Japan in the 17th century, at the beginning of the feudal era. Centuries later, after the end of the Second World War, the changed social consciousness and modernization of the country led the Japanese police forces to standardize their own system with techniques suitable for a modern personal defense. The Taiho Jutsu is constantly evolving. For this reason, in Europe and America, it is used by police forces, security workers and private citizens.
