Kokusai Jujutsu Renmei - Overview

Associated with the Genbukan is the Kokusai Jujutsu Renmei (KJJR). The KJJR was established by Grandmaster Shoto Tanemura in 1991 for the preservation and transmission of authentic Japanese Jujutsu. Unfortunately, today very few jujutsu schools outside of Japan practice what could be considered authentic jujutsu. 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 jujutsu.

The KJJR follows a standard kyu/dan system. After 3rd dan, the student may specialize in one of the ryu ha's which Grandmaster Shoto Tanemura is the Soke of, and may receive scrolls up to Menkyo Kaiden level. The KJJR is world wide in scope and encourages the participation of experienced martial artists who exhibit the potential to learn the KJJR system.
