Tohkon Ryu Ju Jitsu

Sensei Mark Haseman,  a 7th Dan black belt, has been practicing Ju Jitsu since 1972 and is currently Vice President of the Australian Ju Jitsu Association.

Mark Haseman heads a team of qualified instructors whose areas of expertise include defensive tactics in both low and high risk attack situations, personal security strategies, victim selection awareness and avoidance skills,  confrontation and aggression management, travel safety and defensive tactics against armed and multiple aggressors. Mark conducts courses and seminars throughout Australia and overseas.

He is a senior defence consultant for C.A.R.E. Consultants (Control and Restraint Education). C.A.R.E. is a firm that specialises in aggressive person/ patient management for health organisations.

Tohkon Ryu Ju Jitsu translates as “Fighting Soul School”

I hope the “Fighting Soul” of Ju Jitsu is reflected in every class or seminar I teach a soul that expresses both the principles of water and Ju. Gentle as the stream when teaching children and avoiding conflict but powerful as the waterfall and as determined as the tide when ever the necessity of defence of ourselves or others may arise. These are the qualities of the “Fighting Soul School”.

The Tohkon Ryu Ju Jitsu System’s core techniques are combat effective, battlefield proven ones that reflect the soul of Ju Jitsu. They have not been watered down or modified by competition rules. Our defence techniques are designed for realistic combat.
Our sports Ju Jitsu techniques include those techniques passed down from traditional masters and hopefully still contain the soul of those from whom they came.

The Tohkon Ryu Ju Jitsu System was created to provide my students with a system of self-defence that was effective and related to present- day situations, such as against attacks by multiple aggressors, glassing attacks, road rage incidents, child abduction, workplace and playground bullying, rapes, robberies and bashings that occur daily in our society.

Tohkon Ryu Ju Jitsu offers a balance in training, between soft and hard techniques, self-defence and sport techniques. In the spirit of Ju the arsenal of techniques is backed up by a friendly relaxed training environment. Tohkon Ryu Ju Jitsu's flexibility can be seen in the delicate balance between attack and defence, the use of physical and internal energy, and the teaching of a good balance of sport, self-defence techniques and the science/ art of Ju Jitsu. A core component of Tohkon Ryu Ju Jitsu is reality-based training using traditional techniques.
