We are very pleased to be able to offer a Heike-Ryu Jiu class here at the headquarters dojo. The instructor is Sensei Bill Parker, who was Dr. Chamberlain’s first HRJJ instructor under Vince Tamura. The program is overseen by Sensei Jim Webb, the senior Heike-Ryu student of the system’s founder, Sensei Vince Tamura.Since the death of sensei Vince Tamura, Jim Webb, sensei is the head of Heike Ryu, by the authority of the founder.
The style is a throwing (Judo) based system of self defense which also includes striking, submissions and mat work. The class covers the full Heike-Ryu syllabus from beginner through advanced training.
The history of the Taira Clan and the “Tale of the Heike” is summarized with artwork from the period by Dan McKee.
Class meets concurrently with the Judo class on Tuesday and Thursday from 6- 7:30pm and on Saturdays from 12:30-1pm
