Our History



SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION

ATEMIWAZA OR STRIKING ARTS ARE THE UNIQUE FEATURE THAT HAS MADE ... CANADIAN JIUJITSU...
THE DISTINCT AND THE COMPREHENSIVE SELF DEFENSE AND SPORTING ART OF THE PRESENT DAY.
GICHIN FUNAKOSHI, BORN IN 1868 OF A SAMURAI FAMILY DURING THE FIRST YEAR OF THE REIGN OF THE MEIJI RESTORATION TAUGHT DR TSUYOSHI CHITOSE  WHO TAUGHT MASAMI TSURUOKA WHO TAUGHT SHIHAN FORRESTER WHO TAUGHT SENSEI GERRY WATSON WHO TAUGHT HENRY HUGHES WHO TAUGHT JOANNE HILL WHO TEACHES HER STUDENTS THE STRIKING ARTS TODAY.

SHIHAN FORRESTER, THE FATHER OF CANADIAN JIUJITSU  EARNED THIS TITLE BY THE ACCLAIMATION OF THE MARTIAL ARTS COMMUNITY.

THE CURRICULUM OF THROWS , STRIKES AND LOCKS THAT WE TAKE FOR GRANTED - ARE A RESULT OF HIS TEACHINGS..... A SYNTHESIS OF HIS EXPLORATION AND HIS CREATIVITY AND DRIVE.

THE MARRIAGE OF RESPECT AND FUN IN THE TONE OF OUR DOJO AND THE DESIRE FOR CONSTANT IMPROVEMENT IS THE REMINDER OF ANOTHER DOJO AT ANOTHER TIME.

I KNOW THIS EVEN THOUGH I WAS NEVER THERE.
