We Are Eizan Ryu Jujitsu

Respect & Determination

Founded in New York City in the 1960s, Eizan Ryu Jujitsu was developed to adapt traditional Japanese jujitsu techniques to modern urban self-defense situations. The style continues to evolve, combining tradition and innovation, with an emphasis on self-defense and self-development rather than competition. We offer rigorous, serious training in a welcoming and supportive environment, and our classes build confidence and discipline, with each student progressing at their own pace.
