Since its arrival in the United States in the 1940s, Jiu-Jitsu  has experienced an unprecedented popularity, with its practitioners creating a real culture of their own.

Getting in shape and gaining confidence should not be a huge chore made up of boring gym workouts you dread daily.  And most importantly, it is not something you have to face alone!

Let the Danzan Ryu Jiu-Jitsu Program at Marin Self-Defense Solutions help you reach your maximum physical and mental potential.

Get in the Best Shape Of Your Life and Learn to Protect Yourself!

Jiu-Jitsu is widely considered one of the most effective forms of self-defense in the world and has become hugely popular especially with the explosion of UFC. 

Jiu-Jitsu is a Japanese philosophy of self-defense, relying on skill and technique rather than strength and size. Judo is the practice of the Way of Jiu-Jitsu. It is the elevation of one's total self by understanding and adopting the principles of Ju into your manner of being. 

Much of the technique of Jiu-Jitsu is centered around taking down an opponent on the ground and wrestling to control and render him harmless.

With proper technique, a Jiu-Jitsu practitioner can overcome opponents of a much bigger size. No kicks, no punches … let’s roll!

Our Submission Grappling and Jiu-Jitsu Program

Danzan Ryu Judo/Jiu-Jitsu training is systematic and comprehensive. It involves learning to roll and fall (Sutemi), to move and balance (Tai Sabaki), to escape from grabs and manipulate joints (Yawara), to throw & project (Nage), to submit an opponent (Shime), to counter and transition (Oku), to reverse damage and heal injuries (Seifukujitsu), as well as many other in-depth areas of focus.

Self-Defense for the Real World

The ultimate goal of your training in Danzan Ryu Jiu-Jitsu is to align your physical, mental, and emotional self. This alignment represents completion of your character and gives you access to your ultimate power, which is the full integration of your body, mind and spirit.

Danzan Ryu Jiu-Jitsuis practiced by men and women both young and old. It is a highly effective method of self-defense and a great way to stay healthy and in touch with all aspects of your being.

But there is one more important detail to add to this: It’s crazy fun!!!

What Other Members Are Saying:

I started training with sensei Ryan in the mid-1990s when I was in junior high and high school, when he was running an American karate dojo, and have trained more recently with him in danzan ryu jujitsu. I can say from personal experience that Ryan is an exceptionally well-rounded martial artist, both physically and spiritually, and continues to evolve in his own learning--a sign of someone who is truly committed to martial studies. What really makes Ryan stand out, however, is his enthusiasm and skill in instructing. Teaching is something that he clearly has a passion for. He is able to break down complicated concepts into easily digestible chunks, and has a way of seeing a student's strengths and weaknesses. This allows him to take a personalized approach to that student's development, as opposed to a one-size-fits-all approach to martial arts. His demeanor in the class is an interesting blend of drill sergeant, coach and mentor. He will push you, but in an encouraging way. If I lived in Marin I would train with Ryan more consistently. For anyone who wants a well-rounded approach to martial arts--that includes comprehensive striking, weapons, ground game and defense against weapons and multiple opponents--I give MSDS my highest recommendation.

Master Neuman is an amazing martial artist with incredible skills. I have trained with him for many years and his Filipino boxing and weapons are simply awesome. His knowledge of the human body and ability to use striking or joint lock techniques makes his technical skills unsurpassed. Latosa Escrima and Danzan Ryu jujitsu flow together to make for what I consider to be the perfect self defense blend. If you are interested in martial arts training and want to work with a true master it is worth checking out a class.
