Taijutsu (体術, literally "body technique" or "body skill") is a Japanese blanket term for any combat skill, technique or system of martial art using body movements that are described as an empty-hand combat skill or system. Taijutsu is a synonym for Jujutsu (method of unarmed or with minor weapons close combat). The words jujutsu, taijutsu, and yawara can be used interchangeably. The term is commonly used when referring to a traditional Japanese martial art but has also been used in the naming of modern martial arts such as Gendai Goshin Jutsu, Yamabujin Goshin-Jutsu and Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu. Taijutsu is similar to Karate but is more focused on the body techniques. More specific names than taijutsu are typically used when describing a martial art: Judo (focusing on throwing and grappling), Aikido (focusing on throwing and joint locks) as well as Karate and Kenpō (focusing on striking).
