This meetup group is for those interested in training in Danzan Ryu Jujitsu (also referred to as DZR). The art is very similar to Judo (and has roots in Kodokan Judo), but the training is less sport oriented. A large amount of training is focused on self defense.  We do have members that will compete in Judo competitions, and do quite well.

Currently, we train under Sensei J.C. Islander.  He holds a black belt in Danzan Ryu Jujitsu. He received his 4th degree black belt in Karate Do under Kaicho Tadashi Nakamura. He received his 2nd degree black belt in Ying Jow Pai (Northern Eagle Claw) under Sifu Shum Leung. Sensei Islander is also proficient in Wu style Tai Chi Chuan with 8 years of intensive study. He has competed in a number of full-contact Karate, Judo, and Jujitsu tournaments.
