KoKoDo JuJutsu

KoKoDo is a traditional Budo that specializes in joint locks, throws and pressure points for self-defense. This style of Budo is called ”JuJutsu” in ancient Japan. In KoKoDo a student is taught how to neutralize the attacker’s power from the very first moment in each technique to the very end. Each waza demonstrates a movement and shows how to accomplish this.

This is at the very core of everything that the founder of KoKoDo JuJutsu teaches by which a student learns natural and logical ways to neutralize an attackers power. Soke Irie (入江安博) often tells his students that this is the most important point in both in KoKoDo Jujutsu and Aiki. If you are interested in learning more about this unique and wonderful art or wish to join as a student please contact Soke Irie at Hombu Dojo to find out more. Soke is the highest authourity in KoKoDo.

Irie Yasuhiro entered the Hakkoryu Ju-Jutsu Headquarters in 1969 and trained directly under Shodai Soke Okuyama Ryuho.

Irie was the head instructor for more then 20 years where he poured his heart and soul into spreading the art. Many westerners and North Americans travelled to the Hakkoryu Hombu to study and Irie Yasuhiro was their main teacher.

After growing the art and many shihan worldwide Soke Irie left Hakkoryu due to personal reasons and decided to create his own form of JuJutsu called KoKoDo or the Imperial Light Way Gentle Art. Soke established the KoKoDo So Hombu Dojo in 1995, teaching the JuJutsu as a traditional Japanese Budo system. The art has quickly grown to have over 30 chapters in over 12 countries worldwide.

KoKoDo is unique in that the waza and content are taught in an unbiased fashion making it easy to understand even for beginners. Keeping with a deep sense of tradition, the waza are contemporary in nature. All the waza embody Soke Irie personal technique. The waza is logical students can through study and can reproduce Soke Irie’s movements.
