Jujutsu

KJJR    Associated with the Genbukan Honbu Dojo is the Kokusai Jūjutsu Renmei (KJJR - the meaning is International Jūjutsu Federation). It was established by Tanemura Shōtō-sōke in 1991 for the preservation and transmission of authentic Japanese jūjutsu (柔術 - techniques of yielding/softness). Unfortunately today, very few jūjutsu schools outside of Japan practice what could be considered authentic jūjutsu. Having lost the connection with their Japanese roots, they have evolved into eclectic arts. The purpose of the KJJR is to make available training to those who seek traditional jūjutsu.

The following are a few of the ryūha from which the KJJR bases its knowledge from:
• Hontai Yōshin Takagi-ryū jūjutsu

• Kukishin-ryū jūjutsu

• Asayama Ichiden-ryū taijutsu

• Shinden Tatara-ryū taijutsu

• Bokuden-ryū jūjutsu

• Yagyū Shingan-ryū heihō kacchū yawara

• Shindō Tenshin-ryū kenpō (a.k.a. Tenshin Ko-ryū kenpō)

• Itten Ryūshin Chukai-ryū jūjutsu

• Araki Shin-ryū jūjutsu
