Instructors Philosophy

Self Discipline Self discipline through tradition
At Bushidokan we teach Dan Zan Ryu Jujitsu and Bujutsu.  Martial arts (jujitsu or jiu jitsu) is taught in a traditional manner. We are not an MMA school or fight club and we do not teach Brazilian Jujitsu our goal is different.

We feel tradition ensures teaching good values as well as proper self defense techniques. The two must be taught together.  Learning jujitsu at Bushidokan Martial Arts Temple means to move toward a greater awareness and perfection of character.

Jujitsu Instruction

Beginning levels of instruction involve the principles of leverage, movement, coordination, balance and persnal safety. Within the framework of Jujitsu you will be taught self-protection techniques to be used against every conceivable type of attack.

We break down the arts into their pieces, teaching one step at a time how to control our bodies for maximum effect. We are positive-motivation based, using encouragement and praise combined with discipline to assist children and young adults move along in the ranks, as well as in life.
