Thread: Danzan Ryu

I would like for anyone to comment on this specific style of jujitsu. I have recently been looking at Prof. Robert Hudson's division of the art. Is it more of a standing jujitsu or ground jujitsu? Can someone comment on the principals or philosphies on this particular ryu? Is it comprehensive (all facets and rages) or mainly a locking throwing art? I am just trying to get an idea of what it is like. Unfortunately I wont have an opportunity to experience until I get to my next destination.Robby Hedrick

Are you talking about this Prof Hudson? http://www.profhudson.com/articles/bio.html
If so, he teaches Danzan Ryu Jujitsu, not Daito Ryu. I have taken seminars with this Prof Hudson and he is my sensei's sensei. He is very good. Take a look at his video trailers. (some of them, he gets long winded, but his demos are nice) Anyway, if this is the Prof Hudson you are asking about, I can give you more info.

With respect to jujutsu within Daito-ryu, it does seem to be quite severe!

Hey Robert; I'm going to check Jacks school out Tuesday, I've left several messages for him to call me and he hasn't as of yet returned my calls. The phone systems in New Orleans are still in a state of choas. However I do plan on studing Jujitsu under him. Its just hard getting ahold of him
I didn't think that there were any Danzan ryu schools in Louisiana, I was just curious.
