Welcome to the Provo Jujutsu Club!
At the Provo Jujutsu Club we continually seek to expand and improve our martial arts. We believe that there is but one art and it contains everything. The training is combat oriented. We do not seek after trophies or sporting application of the martial arts. We have incorporated several arts into our system. Our basic art is Dan Zan Ryu Jujitsu(yeah, I know. But there are several accepted spellings: Jujitsu, Jujutsu, Jiu Jitsu. We prefer the Jujutsu romanization of the word.)
We are currently affiliated with Chow Hoon Goshin Jitsu. Professor Chow Hoon was a black belt under Master Henry S. Okzaki, the founder of Dan Zan Ryu Jujitsu. It was with Professor John Chow Hoon that I received my first introduction to jujutsu in 1975. Under Professor Chow Hoon’s guidance I was able to successfully attain my Shotokan Black Belt under Master Ohshima (a direct student of Master Funakoshi, the founder of Shotokan). There were no Shotokan Karate of America dojos in the Monterey, California area at that time and I had always wanted to study jujutsu. Attending some of the functions I was able to meet some “famous” martial artists such as Sig Kufferath, Willy Cahill and of course Bob Kent.
