It is with a sad heart we report Grandmaster Michael Heneghan passed away on 20th June 2019 … all at Koshinryu and members of the ASJJ extend our sincerest sympathy to his wife Jane and family


Koshinryu Jujutsu Australia continues the jujutsu / jujitsu teachings and history of the former Australian Society of Ju-Jitsuans … a history in Australia that dates back to 1906 … Detailed in the pages of this site are many reasons for choosing to learn Jujutsu as a member of Koshinryu … here are Six (6) of those reasons


  • 1.  Teachers (sensei) within our schools are guided by the most senior exponents of jujutsu in Australia. Ranked between 6th and 9th Dan with over 250 years collective jujutsu experience.
  • 2.  Members receive a complete training and grading syllabus detailing exactly what will be taught from the very beginning through to achieving a Black Belt. This includes a wealth of information to assist you in gaining a true appreciation for jujutsu.
  • 3.  All Koshinryu teachers are accredited by the Australian Government recognised National Coaching Accreditation Scheme.

We invite you to come along to one of our schools and take a look, or contact us for more information …


  • 4.  You will be taught a system of jujutsu that is relevant, realistic, reliable and retainable, developed through a modernisation of the old ways … while still retaining many aspects of the traditional.
  • 5.  The Koshinryu system is based on the key principal of giving way to a force so as to: blend with, lead, control, and neutralise that force.  This is particularly important in meeting the specific needs of all students: men, women and children.
  • 6.  Koshinryu provides the opportunity for members to continue their learning far beyond achieving a Black Belt … where many schools may only offer recognition within their  dojo … within Koshinryu you can be confident progressing through the ranks will bring you international esteem.

A special invitation: if you are currently running a jujutsu / jujitsu school or considering starting-up a jujutsu / jujitsu school and could be interested in an alliance with Koshinryu Jujutsu Australia … Learn More →
