HISTORY KODOKWAN

Article Index

Jonathan Kruger

"Nigel Sessions from Gaven Ryu Jujitsu, South Africa was taught by Charles Gaven a student of Joe Grant Grierson and Dennis McCrea. He is by far our senior in the fact that he is one of the oldest still alive. But he doesn't teach the Kodokwan Jujitsu that Joe Grant Grierson taught nor does Guy Taylor of Seishi Teppei Jujutsu Kai, Canada. Nigel Sessions style is more closer to Gaven Ryu Jujitsu which was a system of Kodokwan jujitsu mixed later with Charles Gaven own system. Guy Taylor teaches the original jujutsu system taught by Seishi Teppei.

The Kodokwan I teach is a system of Joe Grant Griersons early system syllabus of Kodokwan Jujitsu that he taught in Northern Rhodesia and later continued  to change right through his life. He even taught us a whole lot of new techniques even in 2005. I sat down with him and translated his syllabus into Japanese in 2005. He even mixed some Gung Fu eagles claw, including Karate waza and some  stick fighting from the Philippines."

Today Shihan Jonathan Kruger 6th Dan is the Kaiden Menkyo third generation instructor to the Kodokwan Judo Jujitsu club of Zambia.
