      Welcome to the Budoshin Ju-Jitsu Yudanshakai website. You're reading this because you're curious about Budoshin Ju-Jitsu or want to learn this traditional art, hopefully securing your black belt and teaching the art to others. Well, I'm here to help you reach these goals. 
     My name is George Kirby, 10th dan Budoshin Ju-Jitsu. I've been teaching traditional Japanese ju-jitsu since 1967. I created the Budoshin Ju-Jitsu Yudanshakai [BJJY] to help you master Budoshin JuJitsu for self-defense and earn your rank in this traditional martial art. I am offering you a solid instructional program based upon training and tradition supported by today's technology to help you reach your goals in Budoshin Ju-Jitsu.






    Yes, I have been teaching Ju-Jitsu for over 50 years as an avocation, but I am also a retired fully credentialled public school teacher who has designed instructional programs, trained future teachers and served as a resource for those who wished to improve their teaching skills as I continued to improve mine. This continuous training, sense of professionalism and desire to provide my students with a totally transparent educational process has carried over into how I will help you learn and master the art. There are no secrets or surprises on your road to learning Budoshin Ju-Jitsu. My responsibility, as your sensei, will be to serve as your guide as you master the art of Budoshin Ju-Jitsu.




     Budoshin Ju-Jitsu is based on the teachings of Jack "Sanzo" Seki and a lineage tracing back though Ibaragi Toshifusa [1597-1677] founder of Kito-Ryu Ju-jitsu, and Takagi Orieman Shigenbudo [1615-1711]  founder of Yoshin Ryu Ju-Jitsu. The strong emphasis on self-defense, efficient and smooth movement, and an inherent philosophy of honor, respect, self-control and non-violence, has made Budoshin Ju-Jitsu an extremely effective martial art even in today’s world. Experienced practitioners of Budoshin Ju-Jitsu can subtly thwart an attack with minimal effort, create varying levels of pain to subdue and control an assailant with little or no injury, or severely injure and incapacitate a violent attacker if necessary – all within a few seconds. Ju-Jitsu is the parent art of most of today’s martial arts and trends. Ju-Jitsu is used by military, law-enforcement and protective-service agencies throughout the world. It has survived through the ages because it is such an effective form of self defense.
     Ideally the best situation would be for you to learn Budoshin Ju-Jitsu in a dojo with a qualified sensei. The reality is that there are many people like you who have been unable find a dojo. Up until the mid 1990's you were just of luck.


     The Budoshin Ju-Jitsu Black Belt Home Study Course was released by Panther Productions in 1992 and the martial arts world has never been the same. The acceptance and use of one technological innovation after another helped develop the strong and modern instructional support program that exists today. Even now, 27 years later, the Budoshin Ju-Jitsu program continues to be the technological leader in the martial arts community.
