On his return to Japan, one day he was meditating and I realized the effects of a strong gust of wind on a willow tree and a cherry tree, he gave account that the strong branches of cherry trees broke under the onslaught of wind, while the thin and flexible willow branches are rostrums and ceded to the wind, but immediately regained its original shape. This event inspired Akyama to create a method of combat in which up to the most weak could beat to the more strong adversary, taking advantage of the strength of the same, to be able to use it against her. Whether it is of Chinese origin or not, the truth is this arte marcial its development in Japan. The beginnings of JIU-Jitsu in Japan, are dated to the period between the 7th and 16th century, in which were constant civil wars. The Warrior samurai elite, developing a style of deadly and effective combat that depended on the katana (Japanese sword) during the battles, but a school called Kenjitsu which instructed them to the children of officials of high class to which trained in archery (kyd), fencing (kendo) and combat without weapons (karate or jujutsu). These types of combat began to form part of the life of the samurai, making it more effective and hazardous when it comes to combat. Later in the year 1603se establishes a new Shogun (Emperor) called Tokugawa Yeyaso, starting a new period in the history of Japan known as Edo, thus starting a process of pacification and economic and political stabilization in Japan. Society was divided into 4 classes: in samurai, peasants, merchants and artisans. Peace was lasting which made the samurai began to have financial problems, since not seeing wars his services were no longer needed, a samurai without a master became a ronin (male wave). The Government try to help the ronin with subsidies and emphasizing the importance of the martial arts in education and making the ronin Jiu-Jitsu teachers as new profession.
