Too all of the E-Budo.com family I (Alonzo Haughton) am eagerly searching for a active/authentic Japenese Jujutsu school in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA. Believe me when I tell you I have inquired through the yellow pages, internet, fellow martial artists, etc. Philadelphia seems to have its share of martial arts styles but I am unable to locate a active/authentic Japenese Jujutsu school. Help would be appreciated in the form of the specific style, school name, website (if available), phone number, head instructor. Thanks.

Not locally, I haven't trained directly in the art, I have heard very good things about Ogasawara Sensei in north Jersey, but i don't know if he is still active.

I do know of a few in California. Little too much of a commute. :)

Ask again with that heading on these forums and you may find someone with first hand knowledge of the area.
