Its a combination of movement relaxation and awareness.
Its a complete system to worm up the body, make us ready to go on to the next part of the class, where we combine different techniques, coordination, movements, all with emphasis on the different breathing techniques, controlling and coordinating it, hence bring us more oxygen, energy, power and relaxation.
When the body is worm enough we reduce the chance of injuries for muscles, or over stretching, Therefore its important always to do good Jass-U.
Jassu start in the beginning of every class, although it can be taught as a separate independent Art of its own.
Each art has its own related Jass-U. It can be short, long or independent. Semm-jasani has soft and gentle jassu, long movements and deep breathing. Boabom has more dynamic and stronger jassu, and Yaanbao jassu connect us to the elements we are using.
