    Maofas/Hugo - I completely forgot about Mr. Popkins school, thank you for reminding me. He may be a little far for me to travel multiple times a week due to work and family obligations but I will not rule it out just yet.

    I live in the Bohemia-Patchogue area.

    Ming - If you could find out that would be greatly appreciated.

    Lindz - I came to bullshido for help in staying away from bullshido schools. Just because a school is traditional doesn't mean that it is BULLSHIDO. I mean it's not like I'm looking for a George Dillman center or to learn teh deadly Systema.

    It's fine. As long as you're not pretending that learning kata will make you 'deadly' then you're not going to annoy anyone. I have a friend who practices karate for the same reasons you want to. Although if you can't find a JJJ school that does a lot of kata, I would recommend karate or kendo. Though I've never tried it, kendo looks good fun.

    How was kendo a serious suggestion for someone looking for ju jutsu variants? I'm kinda lost with the silk pajama kung fu thing too - I'll be the first to admit that neither our uniforms nor what we learn are very practical but I'm missing the connections.

    Anyway it looks like people with better info than I have arrived so I'm leaving before I get infracted again.

    Only one off the top of my head is Daito-ryu at Howard Popkin's dojo. There are some options once you get into NYC, but if Popkin's place is too far, then NYC won't work either I guess.

    Yes, sadly Mr. Popkins school is a little far out of my distance range at the moment for any serious training.

    Indeed.

    There's a reason why people who don't know what they're talking about should stay away from those particular subjects.

    And you weren't "Infracted", you were warned about **** posting.

    In addition to contacting the folks over at koryu.com you could also check out e-budo. Finding a good (legit) school of Japanese Jujutsu is going to be difficult. Not only do many of the people who practice such systems stay off the radar, but sometimes it can be difficult to actually get the opportunity to train with them once you do locate where they are.

    I'm in the same boat. There's a branch of Kashima Shinryu (kenjutsu and jujutsu) near me, headed by a Menkyo Kaiden holder and I can't train with them because it's too far away to drive to each night and it's located on a university campus and they don't allow non-students access.

    I was also invited to train with another school of Japanese jujutsu/bugei out in California. Unfortunately I live on the East Coast. So, that didn't work out.

    Good luck!

    Please refer to www.USbudokan.com and give them a call. See for yourself. Nothing to loose. They've been under the radar for a long time but finally available due to new management.
    good luck.
