Danzan Ryu Jujitsu

DanZan Ryu means the “Hawaiian System." It emphasizes throwing, hand arts, and submissions of all kinds. Every technique utilizes "minimum effort for maximum effect" by using the power of your attacker, to provide you with a strong defense.

DanZan Ryu Jujitsu is different from Brazilian Jujitsu in that it relies more on techniques from standing rather than on the ground. In this regard it is more closely related to Judo and Hapkido, both of which share the same lineage with DanZan Ryu.

Classes are for Everyone:
Whether you are a child, teen, or adult, there is a class offered for you. Because the techniques can be done effectively with “minimum effort,” DanZan Ryu Jujitsu can be practiced by all who are interested. It does not require that a person be stronger than his or her opponent. In this regard, both men and women can be on a level playing field.
