Traditional, authentic Sōsuishi-ryū Jūjutsu and Koshi-no-mawari (双水執流組討腰之廻) are practised in Kumataka Dōjōs branch dojos and keikokai, with locations on Australia’s east and west coasts – as well as in Bangkok, Thailand. The Sōsuishi-ryū Jūjutsu Kai (SJJK) is directed by the art’s 16th hereditary inheritor, Shitama Manzo, Dai Shihan. SJJK-AUS is the Australian branch of his organisation. Our instructors train regularly under Shitama Sensei at the Sekiryūkan in Fukuoka.
