Professor Okazaki taught jujutsu and massage to his students, promoting the idea that the fighting spirit should be balanced by the healing spirit. His technique is derived from his training in Japanese restorative techniques as well as traditional Hawaiian bodywork.
Wasenshi Kan Martial & Healing Arts is approved to offer massage courses by the Danzan Ryu Seifukujitsu Institute (DZRSI), a national massage program that is a division of the American Judo & Jujitsu Federation. These courses are open to all qualified persons, whether or not they are in jujutsu.
We are pleased to offer Module 2 of the DZRRT program this year. For jujutsu students, this healing arts class is a valid AJJF mat activity for Black Belt exam purposes. Current AJJF registration and background screening are required, and applications will be available on site. Massage only and temporary AJJF registrations will be available. Successful completion of the full course will lead to certification by the DZRSI and Wasenshi Kan as a Certified Massage Practitioner.
