Video segments from Niseido’s newest Sensei, Rick Schultz! As I watched this test in Louisville this past weekend, I thought to myself that he not only brought honor to the Louisville Dojo, he brought honor to the art of Niseido Ju-jitsu. He will be an asset to the Louisville DoJo for many years to come. Kudos to Sensei Jim Mahanes as well as all the students of the Louisville Dojo for their roll in getting Sensei Rick Schultz over the threshold to Black Belt. He is the first of many black belts to come from The Louisville Dojo.

What I like about this gal is she actually chased Brandon down. How about that gator roll at the end?



Here’s another short video clip from our Women’s Self Defense Class last Saturday. Like I mentioned in an earlier post, they all did well!

Here’s a short video clip of the ground fighting portion of Saturdays 3 hour women’s self defense / anti abduction seminar. These were a tough group of gals that did an amazing job in those 3 short hours. Their confidence levels rose to a whole new level as they completed the course.

Here are a few video clips from Brandon Smiths Black Belt Test held on Saturday April 16, 2016. At the age of 20 he not only accomplished what he set out to do, he made a pronounce statement! I put one of the highlights early so keep your eye open for it 🙂 We will post the rest of the test in the upcoming weeks.

We had our end of the year gathering with our club last night at Foxboro Lounge where we announced Daniel Levy as this year’s student of the year. As Prof would put it “He was happier than a possum eating persimmon seeds”. Daniel is a very talented guy who can take his martial arts to whatever level he wants. It will be great watching his journey.DSC01707


This is a repost of the June 20th 2012 announcement that I made when we severed our relationship with Bill Oliver. I have had many calls and emails over the years asking why? We always responded with a “no comment” reply. We’ll now that the news is out I can finally give my formal response:

Good evening,

As of Tuesday June 19th 2012 we have made a very important decision to sever our relationship with the Naples Aiki Ju Jitsu School / Bill Oliver in Naples Florida. Based on recent and not so recent developments with Naples Aiki Ju Jitsu we have had to make this decision and make it immediatly. It is always unfortunate and difficult to make choices like this, however, as tough as it might be it was a decision that just had to be made.
