What does it mean

Jujutsu Kaisen

The term "Jujutsu Kaisen" combines two Japanese words: "jujutsu" and "kaisen." "Jujutsu" (柔術) is a traditional Japanese martial art, where "ju" (柔) means "gentle" or "flexible," and "jutsu" (術) means "art" or "technique." It reflects the martial art's emphasis on using an opponent's force against them rather than relying on brute strength. "Kaisen" (廻戦) translates to "battle" or "conflict," particularly referring to a revolving or recurring battle, suggesting ongoing conflicts and battles within the story. The combination thus conveys a theme of battling through challenges with skill and strategy, which is central to the narrative of "Jujutsu Kaisen."
