Budoshin Home Study Course

Welcome to the Budoshin Jujitsu Black Belt Home Study Course. Each of the following videos is designed to help you learn techniques required for each specific belt in Budoshin Ju-Jitsu — all the way up through 1st degree Black Belt. Additional techniques, variations and submissions are shown in excess of those required for each belt rank, to help you broaden your background  which will help you work toward nidan [2nd degree black belt] in Budoshin Jujitsu. When combined with BJJY membership for technical support, you will have a solid foundation for growth and accomplishment in this traditional martial art.



These video files are compatible with any device that will play MP4 files. MP4 files, purchased through PayPal, will be sent to you via Hightail, the dropbox service I use. Total file size of all MP4 files is about 13.5GB. There is NO shipping charge for MP4 files as they are sent to you via Hightail usually within 24-48 hours! Scroll down to the bottom of the page to order.

Please also be aware that you will need to follow the requirements in the Student and Black Belt Handbooks to properly progress in rank, also available in the Budoshin Ju-Jitsu Store. However, if you purchase a BJJY membership the Student Handbook will be sent to you FREE as part of your membership package. The Black Belt Handbook would be sent to you for FREE when you achieve 2nd or 1st kyu brown belt and you have a current BJJY membership.


Holy Tanto. Sensei K is friggin’ BadA$$! RR 3/24

Your home study course is down and dirty to the point no nonsense jujutsu , that unlike many other systems is totally realistic. WC 3/20

Your Black Belt Home Study Course is the most detailed video set ever in the history of japanese jujitsu. Very ease to learn from and very detailed. AA 3/20

I just received my 8 video set and watched the first two volumes.  I am completely impressed with the quality of your instruction and the videos.  The slow motion photography is exactly what I had hoped for to break down the techniques for better understanding.  I was also impressed by your mastery of Jujitsu and how relaxed and fluid your movements are. I have been viewing your 8 video instruction set every day this week since I got it. I am definitely absorbing and integrating the techniques as I watch them and look forward to each dojo practice.  Not only is the slow motion photography great, you repeat your techniques several repetitions and from different camera angles.  In addition you do the techniques real time slow and real time fast.  RS 11/09

Have bought the videos and they are excellent . The techniques for the most part are simple and direct , (this is the highest compliment), they would be applicable in self-defense situations! TP

The Budoshin JuJitsu videos are excellent!  I purchased my full set about 7 years ago, and I still use them as a reference tool today. The instruction is very clear, the use of slow motion helps as well. There is more than enough material and variations to take you all the way to Nidan… and beyond.
The more you watch the videos, the more you pick up, the more you learn to blend and borrow when you get to higher rank levels. GC
