Today is a reality, tomorrow is a promise, yesterday was history”

Part of Don Jitsu Ryu’s Dojo Kun

Don Jitsu Ryu – Karate

It is a fighting system created by Grandmaster Professor Don Jacob (who holds a 9th degree Black belt), that is modern in concept but ancient in character. It blends well with karate, Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, Taekwondo, traditional weaponry, self-defense techniques, roll routines and yoga. It is governed by a philosophy of determination to overcome many of life’s challenges and thus, it is not “just a style, it is a lifestyle”. Don Jitsu Ryu is a colored belt system. It is superb…, you just have to experience it!!
