Mission and Objectives

  • The Danzan Ryu Seifukujitsu Institute (DZRSI) was established to teach Okazaki Restorative Bodywork.
  • Classes are open to all qualified persons, whether or not they are in martial arts, but the primary beneficiaries are students of Danzan Ryu Jujitsu pursuing a course of study that enhances their jujitsu studies.
  • Professor Okazaki taught jujitsu and bodywork to his students, promoting the idea that the fighting spirit should be balanced by the healing spirit. From this tradition, many students of jujitsu have gone on to open jujitsu schools and/or bodywork businesses.
  • DZRSI continues a long tradition of passing Professor Okazaki's legacy on to our students.
  • Non-jujitsu students are welcome to participate in the courses. No martial arts background is required to achieve the full benefit of our courses.
