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.
Classes are offered through the Santa Clara Recreation Center for both children and adults. Aspects of training include:
- Self-discipline, awareness, and confidence
- Detailed knowledge and instruction in techniques such as vital point striking, throwing, grappling, and joint locks
