Hoku Shin Ha Shinki Ryu Jujitsu:

Modern Jujitsu 

A Japanese Jujitsu grappling style which focuses on using joint locks, throws and strikes to defend yourself. The content of this system were originally compiled by Soke Terry Stanton, master of Japanese Origin Jujitsu systems - Danzan Ryu Jujitsu, Kamishin Ryu Jujitsu, and a senior student of Daito Ryu Jujitsu.

Our curriculum consists of 12 levels before black belt each focusing on a concept such as basic blocks/strikes, ground work, throws etc. After learning and grading for the 12 lists students are expected to request consideration for Shodan (Black Belt) grading. Students are reminded that black belt however is not an end point in the learning but rather another milestone in their journey through martial arts and self discipline.

Each Monday and Wednesday classes students work on basic concepts, techniques specific to their curriculum level, followed by randori (tactical applications). 

Ancient Japanese Martial Way

Kobukan, signifying the 'Hall of the Ancient Martial Ways', embodies the essence of our training ground for those seeking to practice Classical Japanese Martial Arts. Here, we honor the traditions of the Samurai and the Ninja (Shinobi) without any veil of secrecy, bias, or rivalry. Instead, it is a place where friendship, respect, and personal growth flourish.

Under the direction of Kancho James Wright, a respected master of traditional Japanese martial arts, who has dedicated himself to refining his skills in Classical Japanese Martial Arts since the mid-1980s. With deep passion and unwavering commitment to preserving and sharing these ancient martial traditions, he established the Kobukan Kobudo Renmei.

Under the deep expertise and dedication of Kancho Wright, the Kobukan Kobudo Renmei was founded with the vision of providing a meaningful journey of martial arts the way they were meant to be taught. Kancho Wright serves as a guiding force, leading students toward a dedicated pursuit of the classical Ryu-Ha (Martial schools), which encompass Gyokko Ryu, Koto Ryu, Togakure Ryu, Shinden Fudo Ryu, Takagi Yoshin Ryu, Kukishin Ryu, and Asayama Ichiden Ryu.
