Philosophy

The primary purpose for the practice of Danzan Ryu Jujitsu, as set forth by Master Henry Seishiro Okazaki, is the Perfection of Character.  Students of Danzan Ryu are stretched not only by the mental and physical requirements of the art, but by the moral and ethical standards as well.  All of us strive to live by the code of the Samurai or “The Code of Bushido”. Much can be gleaned from Okazaki’s Esoteric Principles of Danzan Ryu Jujitsu, but he summarizes his expectations in his Code for a Judo Rank Holder.
