    Default AJJ dojo in VA

    Yes there is a DTR group in VA under Scott Vogeley. I do not have the exact location but you can contact the DTR Shinbukan dojo in Japan for further info. Below is the link.

    Hello Kit,

    I'm a Norfolk native (Bay View section), who got transplanted to northern New Jersey many years ago... I still have family down there, and I check the yellow pages for MA schools from time to time when I visit. I'm not aware of any AJJ dojo in the Tidewater area.

    But, if it turns out that Mr Vogeley or any other legitimate AJJ instructor is in Tidewater, I'd love to know about it too.

    Take care, Howard

    Kit,

    Some of Scott Vogeley's students will be attending Kondo sensei's seminar in October (NJ). If you attend you may be able to get together with them and find out info about their dojo.

    Default Any Jujitsu in the Richmonds area?

    Hello guy's, I'm new to the forum. I'm originally from Detroit MI. and just transferred by job assignment to Richmond Va. I've tried extensively to find Jujitsu, but to no avail. I found one Dojo (Quantico Aiki Jutsu)in Fredericksberg, but thats an hour away and just too far for me to travel three times a week. The instructor was o.k. (David Lamond), but he seemed to have more interest in other instructors (Goldberg, Perrera?) than himself.

    Is there anyone on this forum that could direct me in the right direction or is there anyone that can give me more info on Taijitsu as far as what it's similar to and it's effectiveness (Please don't give history on the 9 schools and ect.) Thanks in advance.

    Hi Milton,

    You could check into the Daito-ryu dojo listed on the web page at the link below. It seems to be centrally located in downtown Richmond.

    Good luck.

    Mr. Sample,

    I merged your thread with an existing one in the dojo finder forum for improved results. You might also try posting your question to the jujutsu forum if that is more what you are interested in.

    The Daito-ryu teacher there is Scott Vogeley and he is very talented. He is a direct student of Kondo Katsuyuki sensei and has lived in Japan for a number of years training. I think he also teaches Shindo Muso-ryu jo as well. The dojo is an aikido dojo. The mats are very nice to fall on and it seems like a nice neighborhood. I would highly recommend training with Scott. I visit his dojo once in a while when we can work out the times and I live in Baltimore, MD.

    Good luck!
