Group Description

Yagyu Jujutsu’s roots reach back into time to when this family clan was chosen as the Shogun’s personal and exclusive teachers. It continues on today through just a handful of licensed and authorized instructors. We owe a debt of gratitude to John Viol Sensei for bringing it over from Japan and sharing his knowledge and understanding with us.

At the Martial Science Center, our training in this classical study of Jujutsu is grounded in sogobujutsu principles and methodologies. We will focus on the links between the three methods of engagement- grappling, percussion, and weaponry to pursue a deeper understanding of what connects these approaches and not what separates them. All too often, instructors spend their time focusing on the perceived differences between the arts rather than the relationship that exists. Yagyu Jujutsu is a parent art, in other words, a style that other arts came from. Aikido, Judo, some forms of Karate and Kobudo all can trace their lineage back to Jujutsu. As a result of studying Jujutsu and adopting the same learning strategies employed by the samurai , we will learn more, comprehend more, and achieve greater understanding and proficiency.
