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.
