"Training in Martial Arts is a true education and a look back into the world´s history of the fighting arts. Shihan Price believes that one does not just study one art, but many. Studying the Martial Arts means to start at the top of a circle and at some time in life you will be right back where you started, completing the circle..."
"We are the original "Wrecking Crew" that became famous out of Louisianna"
Also deserving recognition are the two men who currently provide the leadership of our division - Shihan James Gauthier and Kirby Roy (Current Division Head of Jujutsu).This system is rooted out of Louisiana, but spread throughout the United States over the years. All the head Shihans for this art are based out of Louisiana and Texas. The name NI TATSU-RYU JUJUTSU has techniques learned and taught from this system plus many updated and integrated parts from multiple systems, which Shihan Price has found to be combat effective.
We are the original "Wrecking Crew" which became famous from this Louisiana group. Many Senseis´ are still active and teaching the old style that was taught to us by Shihan Bill Pearson and Jim Marler. All current KI masters in the southern region descended from these legendary teachers of Jujutsu. They are responsible for some of the toughest of all students of Jujutsu breed from this main hombo in Alexandria, LA.
The Southern Region of Juko-Ryu Kempo Jujutsu is unique in that it is the product of the first Juko-Ryu Jujutsu class ever taught by Rod Sacharnoski, Soke of Juko-Kai International, in 1969. The Southern Region is the result of the dedication and instruction by two key people - Shihan William Pearson and James Marler. These two masters led The Southern Region Juko-Ryu Jujutsu for over thirty years and still provide leadership and advice needed to make our region of Jujutsu a success. If it where not for them, the Black Belt Federation of Juko-Ryu Kempo Jujutsu and NI TATSU-RYU Jujutsu would not exist.
