Hall of Fame

In 1991, Shoshin Ryu Yudanshakai created the Danzan Ryu Jujitsu Hall of Fame to honor those individuals, living and deceased, who have made significant contributions to Professor Okazaki’s system. Inductees into the Hall of Fame are selected without regard to organizational affiliation, rank, or title.
