Traditional, authentic Sōsuishi-ryū Jūjutsu and Koshi-no-mawari (双水執流組討腰之廻) are practised in Kumataka Dōjōs keikokai, with locations across Australia. The Sōsuishi-ryū Jūjutsu Kai (SJJK) is directed by the art’s 16th hereditary inheritor, Shitama Manzo, Dai Shihan. He is the unquestioned Sōsuishi-ryū headmaster. SJJK-AUS is the Australian branch of his organisation. Our instructors train regularly under Shitama Sensei at the Sekiryūkan in Fukuoka.
Kumataka Dōjōs currently operates in three locations across Australia:
Bayswater, Perth, Western Australia – Head Instructor Thomas Crooks Sensei.
Epping, Sydney, New South Wales – Head Instructor Peter Williams Sensei.
St George, Sydney, New South Wales – Head Instructor Gabriel Dayeh Sensei. This branch was previously located in Hurstville (Kumataka Dōjōs Hurstville/Hurstville Dōjō).
