    Japanese Jujutsu in Portland?

    Thanks for checking the post Bullshidos.

    I'm currently training Kyokushin 5 days a week but after my tournament in April of 2013 I'm looking to cross train some grappling. It will most likely be Judo being we have an Olympic medalist instructing at Portland Judo but the nerd in me really wants to check out japanese jujutsu. From what I've seen on YouTube and read it's more of a stand up style that still focuses heavily on grappling. Does anyone know of any good places in the Portland area that train alive in japanese jujutsu? In a perfect world if train Judo and BJJ but I just can't afford both with my kyokushin. I'm not giving up kyokushin. Osu! If anyone could point me in the direction of some places to check out I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

    I read the website incorrectly. Sorry. It was a quote by Kevin Asano. This is from the website.

    ROY KAWAJI
    Head Sensei

    By Kevin Asano

    Roy Kawaji holds a 4th degree black belt and has been involved with every aspect of Judo for the past 39 years.

    He is possibly most remembered for changing the landscape of high school Judo competition in Hawaii. Overnight, he created a high school Judo powerhouse that went on to finish undefeated seasons year after year. He later solidified his illustrious coaching career by becoming certified in all three branches of service as a Nationally Certified Coach, National Referee and Kata Judge. He currently sits on the Executive Committee of the United States Judo Federation as Assistant to the President.

    Although he had spent most of his childhood as a fierce national competitor, the decades following were dedicated to studying the philosophy of Judo. This combination has given him the rare ability to share his knowledge and experience to his class with simple beauty and grace. The sheer number of students and instructors who credit him for their love of Judo, is hard to match.

    On my journey around the globe, en route to medaling at the World Games and Olympics, I had the opportunity to train with the best teachers in the world and I can honestly say that Roy Kawaji ranks with the best of them.

    I remember my late Sensei, 7th Degree Professor Fukushima looking over his coaching prodigy and saying, “Roy is Coach Midas. Everything he touches turns to gold.”

    (Kevin Asano is an Olympic Silver medalist and World bronze medalist. He was named the US Judo Athlete of the Year by the US Olympic Committee and has been inducted into the US Judo Hall of Fame in 2008.)

    Japanese Ju Jutsu is probably just Gendai Ju Jutsu.
    Most Gendai Ju Jutsu styles are just a mix of (Shotokan) Karate + Judo + Aikido - randori.

    The best thing is to observe the Judo class and see how the mix is between stand-up and groundfighting. Most schools will have a nice balanced mixture.
    While Judo groundfighting isn't BJJ, it's something that you shouldn't underestimate and will give you a very good "topgame".

    Hey Budo_Brown,

    Just moved to the area. I would be glad to do some cross training and show you some grappling if you want.

    A quick Google search turns up a few things.

    This jujutsu club (which I wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole):
    http://www.portlandjujitsu.com/

    An aikido club with BJJ classes (assuming they're telling the truth about their head instructor's credentials, this would be good aikido; not sure about the BJJ guy):
    https://www.facebook.com/NorthPortlandJujitsu

    A Danzan-ryu club (I know almost nothing about DZR):
    https://www.facebook.com/NorthPortlandJujitsu

    This karate/jujutsu place (which I also wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole):
    http://www.shorinjikido.com/

    This club (whose web site is trying really hard to look like something out of a samurai movie):
    http://www.prmaa.com/
