I am thinking about joining a Danzan Ryu Jujitsu dojo, and I am wondering what your perceptions/opinions are about this ryu.
I've been studying gendai Jujitsu for 7 months at a different school which emphasizes practical self-defense, but does not include kata or meditation training. Also, my current school does not teach the Japanese terminology for techniques, which I would like to know. I find myself really missing those elements, which is why I am drawn to Danzan Ryu.
So...I know what is most important is whether I like my local Danzan Ryu dojo. But aside from that, I would also like to how this style is perceived in the larger martial arts community.
Thanks in advance for your input!
