New England Small Circle JuJitsu
Sensei Ed Melaugh spent 18 years practicing street jujitsu before training with Professor Wally Jay, the founder of New England Small Circle JuJitsu. Professor Jay later promoted Ed to eighth-degree black belt and asked him to lead the United States Small Circle Jujitsu Association. In 1991, Ed was inducted into the World Martial Arts Hall of Fame. He also trained with Sijo James DeMile, a student of Bruce Lee. DeMile is best known for his contribution to Lee's intense one- and three-inch punches.
As the sensei at New England Small Circle JuJitsu, Ed Melaugh teaches street safety to kids, adults, and law-enforcement officers. He instructs them to target an attacker's weaknesses, using simple circular motions on their fingers and wrists or bribing them to go away with a sprinkle-flecked donut. Though targeting certain body parts can cause pain, it aims to take down opponents without wounding them.
