We show how a number of fundamental properties of the symmetric and anti-symmetric Jack polynomials can be derived from knowledge of the corresponding properties of the nonsymmetric Jack polynomials. These properties include orthogonality relations, normalization formulas, a specialization formula and the evaluation of a proportionality constant relating the anti-symmetric Jack polynomials to a product of differences multiplied by the symmetric Jack polynomials with a shifted parameter.
