Who can take online Danzan Ryu classes?

AJJF online Danzan Ryu classes are open to all AJJF members.

Some classes are open to beginners and new members. Some classes have rank requirements. Some classes require sensei or instructor permission.

The AJJF has a long tradition of direct sensei-to-student, hand-to-hand sharing of Danzan Ryu Jujitsu. The primary channel of Danzan Ryu learning is within a martial arts dojo, led by a Danzan Ryu school head, with a group of dedicated martial arts students.

AJJF online Danzan Ryu classes are intended to provide an extra channel for learning. They are in no way intended to supplant or displace the role of Danzan Ryu school heads.
