Budoshin Ju-Jitsu
The Gentle Art of Self-Defense


Got a Question?

If you have a question or comment for Sensei George Kirby or the BJJY please fill out the contact form below. I usually respond to email inquiries within  24 hours.

I generally do not deal with social media such as Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, Messenger, Instagram, Tumblr, etc. Emailing is my preferred form of communication as it offers the most flexibility and privacy – at least in my book.

If you are not on my secure mailing list and want to receive “Budoshin-Online” my monthly  summary newsletter please fill  out the “Sign Up Today for Budoshin Online!” form to the left.  VerticalResponse [the company that maintains my secure email list] uses a “double opt-in” process to protect you from spam & other people who might try to sign you up without your permission or knowledge. Be sure to click “Join Now” to start the double opt-in process.
You’ll also receive a monthly link to receive recent issues of Kokoro, my Q&A newsletter for BJJY members. If you’re a non-BJJY member you will usually receive the previous month’s [or older] issue of Kokoro. 
[BJJY members can ignore this sign-up process as you’re automatically signed up to receive both publications as part of your BJJY membership benefits as stated on the membership page.]
When you sign up to receive these publications, please be aware of the following:
  1. VerticalResponse [VR]  uses a “double-opt-in” sign up process to protect you from spam. VR will send you a confirmation email to make sure that you are the person who signed up. You must respond to be placed on my email list. This prevents other people from signing you up without your knowledge or permission.
  2. You can remove yourself from my secure email list at any time by either a] asking me to delete your email address or b] self-deleting by following the simple 1-2 click directions at the end of every issue of Budoshin-Onlines
Note: If you do not want to use the form to the left, provided by Vertical Response, to receive Budoshin-Online and Kokoro but still want to receive both newsletters just click HERE to fill out the contact form at the top of the page and ask to receive these publications. I’ll  respond and  help you through a double opt-in process just using emails between you and me. I will email you at the email address you have given me and you will have to respond [from that email address] indicating that you want to be on my mailing list.
