Traditional Jujutsu


with David Woodland

Calendar Next available session starts Dec 2, 2019 at 5 pm
1 additional session

Danzan Ryu Jujitsu traces its roots all the way to the samurai. Students will learn an art that teaches self-defense as a by-product, not violence. From the first day of learning customs and courtesies to then learning rolls, falls, and escapes from holds then moving to throwing, ground work and striking, with a strong emphasis on safety. Students learn to protect themselves and become physically fit. Healing arts, anatomy, physiology and massage balance out the curriculum.

The ultimate goal of the Danzan Ryu is perfection of character. Students are challenged to be more and do more than they thought possible. Rank is achieved by hard work, positive attitude, and learning physical as well as academic curriculum. Written and performance examinations are administered when students are ready to advance. Outside reading and study are encouraged and maintaining a notebook of what's learned is necessary. Students can achieve rank up to black belt through this program. Our system of martial arts has direct lineage to the founder of the system.

This class is a good way to become more physically fit and mentally challenged with increases seen in self-esteem, positive attitude, and growth in character. Our program helps build friendships with returning and new students. Ages 14 and older are welcome. Younger students may be accepted with instructor permission. ALL STUDENTS MUST PAY A ONE-TIME ANNUAL $25 MEMBERSHIP FEE to the American Jujutsu Institute for liability purposes. This once annual fee is good from January through December and is due to the instructor at your first class.
