These classes draw from a variety of Japanese traditions and offer the students a wide assortment of unarmed and weapons training. We regularly work with a variety of the schools passed down from Takamatsu Toshitsugu. Our main focus for our classes are the arts of Hontai Takagi Yoshin Ryu Jujutsu and Kukishin Ryu. Our fully licensed instructors train in Japan yearly and offer a unique perspective into the training. All training covers very basic to advanced concepts including resisting opponents. The basic and advanced techniques from these classes are specifically chosen to prepare a student to further their studies in the Takagi School of Jujutsu or other koryu.

This class is for mainly grappling skills or Jujutsu. We work on standing and ground grappling for all levels. Our program offers a unique approach by combining both Japanese and Gracie Jujutsu. Most of the class is spent on Newaza or "ground defense skills" but we also cover various joint locks and throws from standing. This class is also a great workout for those interested. Our class is taught by black belts in Japanese Jujutsu and Gracie jujutsu. We also have 7th degree black belt Luiz Palhares visit our school every 3 months for advanced training!


We offer training in authentic koryu from Japan by invitation only. This training is only for lifelong students of martial arts and have stringent requirements. Training includes the Bugei Juhappan.

We usually ask that each student research what is involved in Koryu practice and what might be expected of them.
