The Goshin Kan teaches the Nihon-ryu Jujutsu system of the Nihon-ryu Goshin Budo/Bugei Renmei, the Nihon-ryu Jujutsu is a style of traditional Japanese & Okinawan Martial Arts.

Jujutsu, also spelled jujitsu, is a forerunner to modern judo and aikido. It has many different styles or schools. Although each style emphasizes different aspects, all share a number of features. It is an art of weaponless self-defense developed in Japan that uses throws, holds, and blows and derives added power from the attacker's own weight and strength.

Jujutsu is the art of  suppleness, flexibility, and gentleness. Jujutsu techniques include kicks,  strikes, and weapons, but the main emphasis is: throwing, choking, joint  locking, and other submission techniques. Jujutsu provides effective self  defense in very close situations - being grabbed, pinned to the ground, pushed,  or otherwise restrained. Although Jujutsu techniques are initially learned  individually, in a static position, the essence of Jujutsu is the ability to  move from one technique to another as quickly and as often as necessary to  control the attacker. The proper use of technique and your opponent’s motions  enable you to defeat a stronger attacker.
