A journey to explore the way of martial arts.

Sensei John Gage took over the teaching of Nihon-Jujutsu at the American Embassy Club from the founder Sato Shizuya. Nihon Jujutsu is a modern Japanese martial art that focuses on practical, efficient techniques as originally found in both ancient and contemporary martial arts. Its principles and techniques derive from Japanese unarmed combat and self-defense techniques from pre-1945 judo and aikibujutsu, as well as taihojutsu (Japanese police immobilization and arresting methods).
