Based in Santa Clara, California, the Kodenkan Jujitsu School has taught self-defense for over 40 years in the greater San Jose area. The Kodenkan was founded by Prof. Sig Kufferath and Prof. Tony Janovich to pass on Danzan-Ryu jujitsu to those seeking a proven and practical street martial art.
Promotions at the Kodenkan Jujitsu School were held this January for all students who tested and passed. Notably, Sheridan DeMars was promoted to shodan, first degree black belt. Fyodor also received his advanced blue belt.
Sheridan performed all the techniques from Yawara, Nage, Shime, Oku, Kiai no Maki, and Shinnin no Maki before being continuously attacked by 3 people until told to stop.
Kodenkan students tested for promotions in December, 2015. Tests included Sheridan for shodan (1st degree black belt), Fyodor for advanced blue belt, and Sudev for blue belt. Photos from the tests below!
