Danzan Ryu Jujitsu
At its core, Danzan Ryu Jujitsu is about self-realization. This is as true today as when the founder, Professor Henry Seishiro Okazaki, first stated it. He held that one could not master a martial art without supreme cultivation of one's being. After 38 years of diligently studying Danzan Ryu Jujitsu, I have found, without a shadow of doubt, this is absolutely true in every sense it was meant.
My dojo in Tempe, Arizona, Halau O Ho'Omana, is dedicated to the development of the natural, innate power within you as well as self-defense training at its highest cultivation. Essential to our system of Jujitsu is the healing aspect, without which mastery cannot take place. The founder knew the intertwined relationship of the healing side to the martial side and in a seamless, and to my way of thinking, perfect blend of these principles, he created Danzan Ryu Jujitsu.
Through the information presented on this website, it is my goal that you will not only see how this self-realization is integrated within the Danzan Ryu system, but also see how such understanding comes about through specialized training. The guiding principle of my dojo is that with proper training we can all attain as high a level of skill and understanding as we desire. It is my fervent hope that the information here will not only address many of your questions but that it will awaken within you the same desire to study this art that I still have to this day, 38 years after I first began.
Leave no stone unturned, leave no question unanswered, never settle and always remain humble!
Your servant in Danzan Ryu,
Professor Robert Hudson, Kudan
