Anyone know about Ryujin-jiujitsu
A friend of mine was asking if I knew any local martial arts schools worth checking out. We live near the boonies in Navarre Fl and there's not much around. I drive into Pensacola and train BJJ at Gracie Pensacola it's about a 45min-to an hour (depending on traffic) drive for me. Me friend and her husband work in the Navarre area so I think they may be looking for something closer.
She mentioned she found a female instructor in the area that teaches Ruyujin-jiujitsu 2-3 x a week, hour long classes for $35 a month, and half off for a second person i.e. husband to train too. The price sounds like a good deal, i'm not sure about the style though. I glanced over the only website I could find and it looks like most traditional JJJ dojos I've seen; there's strikes,throws,some groundwork, and pressure points.
Like most places I figure the average mid level student has some knowledge in all of the areas but probably isn't better than someone at the same skill level who trains in a specialized art like BJJ for ground, Judo for throws, or boxing/muay thai. Of course, none of these other styles are offered in the Navarre area either.
Here's a link to the site I found:
What do you bullies know about this style? What do you think?
