It is with a sad heart we report Fred Wright sensei passed away on 15th November 2020 … all at Koshinryu and members of the ASJJ extend our sincerest sympathy to his wife Jane and daughter Sophie


The ASJJ together with Koshinryu Jujutsu Australia have 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 student member of Koshinryu or graduate member of ASJJ … 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 ASJJ / Koshinryu teachers are accredited coaches under the National Coaching Accreditation Program, administered on behalf of the Australian Jujitsu Federation.

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 schools 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.  Our school 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 the combined system of ASJJ and 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 →
