A Japanese Martial Arts School of Jujutsu, Aikijujutsu & Iaido

At the Yoshitsune Jujutsu Dojo....

Private and Semi-Private lessons are available and are a great way to get specialized and personal training in Hakko Ryu Jujutsu, Daito Ryu Aikijujutsu, Ryushin Shouchi Ryu Iaijutsu or in Self Defense Tactics.

These personal training sessions are always tailored to your individual goals and will be preplanned together to ensure your goals are met. To book a lesson or to learn more about them call 201-725-9019.

Japanese philosophy dictates that all means of self defense must be used in socially responsible ways. Thus, specific measures exploit anatomical weak points, allowing for a response appropriate to the circumstances and are designed to control an assailant with a minimum of injury.

We pride ourselves on teaching authentic Japanese Jujutsu and Iaido where we have current and productive relationships with our Japanese Headmasters.

Yoshitsune Jujutsu Kai...

is led by Fred Bernier, 6th degree Black Belt who has trained in the Japanese Martial Arts since 1978 and continues to travel to Japan on a regular basis to visit and train with his teachers.
