My name is George Kirby, 10th dan Budoshin Ju-Jitsu. I've been teaching traditional Japanese ju-jitsu since 1967. I created the Budoshin Ju-Jitsu Yudanshakai [BJJY] to help you master Budoshin JuJitsu for self-defense and earn your internationally recognized rank in this traditional martial art. I am offering you a solid instructional program based upon professional training and tradition supported by modern technology to equal a program made just for you and help you reach your goals in Budoshin Ju-Jitsu.


Yes, I have been teaching Ju-Jitsu for 48 years as an avocation, but I am also a fully credentialled public school teacher who has designed instructional programs, trained future teachers and served as a resource for those who wished to improve their teaching skills as I continued to improve mine. This continuous training, sense of professionalism and desire to provide my students with a comprehensive and totally transparent educational process has carried over into how I will help you learn the art. There are no secrets and no surprises on your road to learning and mastering Budoshin Ju-Jitsu. It's all up front so you can concentrate on learning and achieving your goals. My responsibility, as your sensei, will be to act as a resource and serve as your guide as you learn and master the art of Budoshin Ju-Jitsu.


    Budoshin Ju-Jitsu is a traditional Japanese form of the art, based upon the teachings of Jack Seki and a lineage tracing back though Ibaragi Toshifusa [1597-1677] founder of Kito-Ryu Ju-jitsu, and Takagi Orieman Shigenbudo [1615-1711]  founder of Yoshin Ryu Ju-Jitsu. The strong emphasis on self-defense, efficient and smooth movement, and an inherent philosophy of honor, respect, self-control and non-violence, has made Budoshin Ju-Jitsu an extremely effective martial art even in today’s world. Experienced practitioners of Budoshin Ju-Jitsu have the ability to subtly thwart an attack with minimal effort, create varying levels of pain to subdue and control an assailant with little or no injury, or severely injure and incapacitate a violent attacker if necessary – all within a few seconds. Ju-Jitsu is the parent art of most of today’s martial arts and trends. Ju-Jitsu is used by military, law-enforcement and protective-service agencies throughout the world. If it wasn’t such an effective form of self-defense it wouldn’t have survived through the ages.
    Ideally the best situation would be for you to learn Budoshin Ju-Jitsu in a dojo with a qualified sensei. The reality is that there are many people like you who would like to learn and master traditional Ju-Jitsu, but can’t find a dojo. Up until the mid 1990’s you were just out of luck.


    Starting in the 1990’s four major events occurred that changed the “traditional” manner in which ju-jitsu was taught. First, Panther Productions released my 8-DVD series which took students step by step from white belt up through shodan.
    The second major event was the growth of the internet and changes in video and audio technology that have made instantaneous communication and the exchange of audio & video tests almost as fast.
    The third major event has been the cross-referencing of techniques from my videos, my “Ohara” books, the “big book” and the techniques listed in the Student and Black Belt Handbooks. There is no more guessing about what sensei is looking for on a performance exam.
    The fourth major event was the conversion of all printed documents to pdf format and almost all video content to mp4 format. Almost everything you need is just a keyboard click away . . . and no shipping charges either.
