A Japanese Martial Arts School of Jujutsu, Aikijujutsu & Iaido

Hakko Ryu Jujutsu is....

an effective martial art used for self-defense and character development. Training includes physical conditioning, evasive movements, striking, throwing and immobilizations using joint locks and other methods of restraint.

The influence of oriental medicine is one of the distinguishing characteristics of Hakko Ryu and can be seen in the system's emphasis on using pressure points and manipulation of the opponent's body through both the skeletal structure and the body's meridians.

Hakko Ryu Jujutsu comes from the Japanese language meaning "The style of the Eighth Light." In their philosophical view of the color spectrum, infrared is the eighth light, which is invisible to the naked eye, but extremely powerful, as are the Hakko Ryu Jujutsu techniques.

It was said by its founder that the pathway of least resistance would always overcome strength. Therefore, schools of Hakko Ryu Jujutsu exercise strategies that avoid conflict as much as possible, and employ techniques that do not use strength, but instead use techniques that work against the body's natural motions and movements to take down an opponent.

Consistent training improves one’s physical fitness, balance, flexibility and your mental state. Through this training your self-confidence, concentration, and alertness will improve.

The three major characteristics of Hakko Ryu Jujutsu are: no challenge, no resistance & no injury.
