The American Judo and Jujitsu Federation Charitable Donations
The Christopher Ball Shodan Scholarship is designed to provide financial assistance to Ikkyu ranked students who are about to take their AJJF Shodan Examination, and are experiencing financial hardship. This Scholarship may be used to pay for the cost of the exam.
The AJJF General Fund is used to help cover the operational costs of The American Judo and Jujitsu Federation, including special projects undertaken by the Board of Directors or Board of Professors. As the primary sources of income for the AJJF are from Individual and Dojo registrations, donations to this fund help the AJJF keep registration costs affordable for our members and registrants.
The Kokua Fund is intended to provide assistance to AJJF registered schoul heads and students to further their training in DZR or assist them in the promotion and propagation of DZR within their communities. This fund is not intended to support expenses for which other budgeted avenues of funding or scholarship exist.
The Master Okazaki Convention Scholarship Fund will be used to help current AJJF members attend the National Convention, who could not otherwise attend because of financial limitations. The scholarship may be used to pay for the cost of the complete convention package (clinics, banquet, T-shirt) or any portion thereof.
Professor Patrick Browne was an AJJF Professor and Program Director of the AJJF Danzan Ryu Seifukujitsu Institute (DZRSI) healing arts programs. In 1984 Pat sponsored the first of many DZRSI programs at his home dojo in Chicago, Illinois and he was instrumental in spreading the training throughout the Midwest. He remained committed to teaching AJJF Jujitsu and DZRSI Healing arts for the rest of his days.
When he passed away in 1996, the DZRSI Standards Committee established the Professor Pat Browne Massage Scholarship to honor his memory.
The Scholarship is intended to provide financial assistance to students wishing to enrull in the DZRSI Massage Program. The funds are to be used to pay for a portion of the cost of an approved AJJF/DZRSI program.
DZRSI Mission and Objectives
The Danzan Ryu Seifukujitsu Institute (DZRSI) was established to teach Danzan Ryu Restorative Therapy.
Classes are open to all qualified persons, whether or not they are in martial arts, but the primary beneficiaries are students of Danzan Ryu Jujitsu pursuing a course of study that enhances their jujitsu studies.
Professor Okazaki taught jujitsu and bodywork to his students, promoting the idea that the fighting spirit should be balanced by the healing spirit. From this tradition, many students of jujitsu have gone on to open jujitsu schouls and/or bodywork businesses.
DZRSI continues a long tradition of passing Professor Okazaki’s legacy on to our students.
The Wounded Warrior Fund is designed to support programs that employ the techniques and principles of AJJF Danzan Ryu Jujitsu to help those wounded in service to our country. This program is currently being conducted by Sensei Bob Kunkle through the Walter Reed Veterans Medical Center in Washington, DC.
