About This Activity

Description

We are a Shinsenka-ryu Dojo in Evergreen, CO at the Wulf Recreation Center. At IwaYama Jujutsu we are dedicated to the practice and propagation of Jujutsu. We offer a safe, friendly and healthy training environment that focuses on personal growth and development for both youth and adult students.
IwaYama Jujutsu (jūjutsu), literally meaning the "art of softness", is a Japanese martial art consisting primarily of grappling. Jujutsu evolved among the samurai of feudal Japan as a method for dispatching an armed and armored opponent in situations where the use of weapons was impractical or forbidden. Due to the difficulty of dispatching an armored opponent with striking techniques, the most efficient methods for neutralizing an enemy took the form of chokes, pins, joint locks, and throws. These techniques were developed around the principle of using an attacker's energy against him, rather than directly opposing it, and came to be known as jujutsu.

There are many variations of the art that lead to a diversity of approaches. Jujutsu schools (ryū) may utilize all forms of grappling techniques to some degree (i.e. throwing, trapping, joint locking, holds, gouging, biting, disengagements, striking, and kicking). In addition to jujutsu, many schools teach the use of weapons.

The head instructor, Eric Goslau, began his journey and study of martial arts in 1996. Beginning in 2004, he studied the arts of Lehigh Fukasakai, under George-sensei. After moving to Washington State in 2008, he continued his passion and study of the Jujutsu arts under Hackett-sensei of the Shinsenka-ryu, and currently holds the rank of first degree black belt (shodan) and menkyo shodan in Shinsenka-ryu Jujutsu.
Eric strongly believes in the value gained from the practice of Jujutsu. He is dedicated to helping each of his students reach their goals.
