The Kiai Echo
The Kiai Echo is the newsletter of the American Judo and Jujitsu Federation, Inc. (AJJF), a non-profit educational organization that promotes Danzan Ryu Jujitsu, a classical Japanese martial art.
Selected articles have been reproduced on this web site. The Kiai Echo Editor will post contest results and Black Belt promotions immediately as they are received. These will be published online and promoted via social media (Facebook and Twitter). They will not be password protected, but will be immediately publicly available. By the time this material is submitted to the Kiai Echo, it has already been approved by the appropriate BOP members, and thus requires no further approval process. Traditional articles, as well as anything that is not native to print (i.e. podcasts, video, 3D animations, etc.), will go through an approval process.
New issues and many old issues are available on the Kiai Echo Archive page.
Submissions must be received by the following dates for review to be included in the up coming issue:
- Any time for the new Constant Release Schedule
- March 1st for the Annual PDF / Print issue
Articles should be submitted via email to gro.fjja@ohceiaik. Articles should be in Microsoft Word or plain text format. Please make sure your name is included in the body of the submission, not just in the email. Photos should be sent as high resolution JPEG or PDF or other standard image formats. For large files, please place them in a shared Dropbox (or Google Drive) folder and send a link to gro.fjja@ohceiaik. Note that low-quality and low-resolution images are generally unusable. Please address all submissions and correspondence to:
