Massage School


MKHA is approved by the Danzan Ryu Seifukujitsu Institute (DZRSI), a national massage program that is a division of the American Judo & Jujitsu Federation. The courses are open to all qualified persons, whether or not they are in jujitsu, but the primary beneficiaries are students of Danzan Ryu Jujitsu pursuing a course of study that enhances their jujitsu studies.

Professor Okazaki taught jujitsu and massage to his students, promoting the idea that the fighting spirit should be balanced by the healing spirit. His technique is derived from his training in Japanese restorative techniques as well as traditional Hawaiian bodywork.

Makoto Kai Healing Arts continues a long tradition of passing Professor Okazaki's legacy on to our students.

Non-jujitsu students are welcome to participate in courses at MKHA. No martial arts background is required to achieve the full benefit of our courses.
