The Kodenkan Danzan Ryu Jujitsu Association’s Curriculum

Our course of instruction is organized to mirror that taught by Professor Okazaki in the early 1900s.  Its content was validated by the late Professor Sig Kufferath, the Danzan Ryu School Second-Generation Headmaster and senior Okazaki student.
