In Memory Of
My method of Jujitsu is based on my experience of better than 40 years, studying with many great teachers not the least of which is my Sensei Frank Curtis. Jujitsu is neither effortless nor painless, but it is rewarding. In my study of the art I have found the best techniques to be simplistic in nature. My instructor always said “Keep it simple student”.
Jujitsu is unique in that it is deferent from person to person. Not that fundamentals or kihon are not important, but once they are a part of your Jujitsu it becomes a very unique art.
While it has been over 10 years after Hurricane Katrina and Rita have changed our local towns and scattered it’s people across the country, those of us who remain have picked up the pieces and started to rebuild our lives and our community.
Some say “it will never be the same again” while others say “we will rebuild it better than before”.
It is our hope that “rebuilding it better” will be true!
