How do you win in a ju jitsu match?

Jujitsu is not a sport. Though many people believe it is, it is not. Jujitsu is a set of self defense techniques that help build awareness, strength, flexibility, and confidence in order to defend oneself against an attacker. The techniques used are not literal rather a set of techniques that teach certain things about the body and how it can be manipulated. Jujitsu is confused as being a sport because many of it's derivatives are sports such as Judo which is a contest in throwing arts, or Brazilian Jujitsu which is a contest in grappling arts. Jujitsu is not a sport, it is a martial art. To win in jujitsu is to be at peace with yourself.
