New Zealand Eagle Spirit Jujitsu was originally founded on the principles of :
- Self Confidence: to develop self-confidence in students so that they may grow into strong and caring human beings
- Respect: to encourage respect to all others, treating them, as you would want them to treat you. To understand that respect is mutual and is earned not expected. To promote friendship and mutual cooperation amongst all martial arts and their practitioners.
- Self Protection: to physically empower individuals to improve their skills of self defence and to empower their minds to develop risk awareness, assessment, and management in their every day lives.
- Safety: to provide a safe, friendly and encouraging environment in which to teach, learn and share training and expand a student’s knowledge at their own pace.
