Goshinbudō, literally "self-defense" (goshin) "martial" (bu) "arts" (do), is a generic name for several systems of modern self-defense (also known as Gendai Jujutsu) which are based on martial arts techniques from Japan. Typically, most Goshinbudō systems are based on the techniques of jujutsu, and enriched with techniques from other martial traditions such as Judo, Karate, and Aikido. These techniques are then modified for modern self-defense situations.

Kuniba Goshinbudō (Kuniba-ryū Goshindō)

One of the first systems to use the name Goshinbudō was the Kuniba Goshinbudō, also known as Goshindō, created by Shōgō Kuniba.[1][2] Kuniba combined his knowledge of Shitō-ryū karate, Yoshinkan Aikido, Kodokan Judo, and Jujutsu to better accommodate the needs of his foreign students for a self-defense system.

According to the International Seishinkai Karate Union website: "In 1973, Shōgō Kuniba, Sōke was promoted to the rank of Hachidan, (8th Dan), in Karate-dō, Iaido, Kobudō and Goshin Budō. Goshin Budō is a combination of all the arts that Kuniba, Sōke has trained in, for example, Karate-dō, Judo, Aikido and Jiu Jitsu".[2]

This system is better known as Goshindō in Japan and Kuniba-Ha Goshin Budō jujutsu in the U.S.. Notable practitioners of this art are Butch Velez and Richard Baillargeon.

Kaisho Goshin Budō Taiho Jutsu-ryū

Darrell Max Craig teaches a self-defense system called Kaisho Goshin Budō Taiho Jutsu-ryū in Houston, Texas. He has stated that this system is the official Jujutsu system for the Tokyo Police. He has also called his experiences in Japan with Ichiro Hata and the Imperial Palace Polie "invaluable" with regard to his martial arts training.[3]

Goshinbudō Jujutsu Indonesia

Another system which uses the name Goshinbudō is the Goshinbudō Jujutsu Indonesia system. It was formulated by C.A. Taman and his student Ben Haryo. Taman studied Wado-ryū in Japan under the guidance of Hironori Otsuka, the founder of the system, and Takashi Sasaki (Hiroshima University teacher). Wado-ryū in itself is a combination of Shindo Yoshin-ryū jujutsu and Okinawan karate.[4]

Taman brought the Wado-ryū system to Indonesia in 1968, and soon headed the JKF Wadokai branch of Indonesia. He later refined the system to include more self-defense techniques directly applicable to modern situations. The take downs, throws and joint-locking techniques of jujutsu are heavily utilized, while pressure-point strikes from traditional karate and kyusho-jitsu are heavily favored over the usual strong-style kicking and punching commonly used in sport karate.

In the 1990s, Taman ordered Ben Haryo to carry on further research in formulating self-defense which were rooted in traditions and still carried the "Budō Spirit" of self-improvement.[citation needed] Ben Haryo learned other styles of martial arts, most notably the Dentokan version of Hakko-Ryu and KoKoDo jujutsu[5] and modern American jujutsu of the Ketsugo Jujutsu system.[6] The techniques from those jujutsu systems were added into the previous Wado-ryū system, eventually creating a new group of self-defense techniques, which they called Goshinbudō Jujutsu.[7] The karate and jujutsu arts have separate grading system, allowing students to test for both.

Goshin Budōkai USA

A group in USA under the guidance of Jim P. Jarrel also uses the name Goshin Budō, in this case Goshin Budōkai USA, teaching Jarrel-ryū Wo Chen Karate Jitsu and Ju-Jitsu.[8]

Noboru Goshin Budō Jiu-Jitsu

Noboru Goshin Budō Jiu-Jitsu is the name of another Goshin Budō group based on New York, USA, led by Kyoshi Anthony Gentile.[9] According to their website, "Noboru is a synthesis of traditional Karate and Jiu Jitsu, the techniques are unique in that they have an extremely broad range of applications. Kyoshi Anthony Gentile and Sensei Ronni Gentile have designed Noboru to be especially effective for women."[10]

Goshin Budō France

A group in France under the guidance of Carole Woelfel and Antonio Castro also practices jujutsu under the name Goshinbudō. Their affiliation is with the International Martial Arts Federation (IMAF).[11][12]

Matsuoka Goshinbudō Jujitsu

Doug Matsuoka is a 4 Degree Kukkiwon Black Belt in Taekwondo. He is also a Black Belt in Judo, Shorin-ryū Karate, and Aikido. He is the founder of the Goshinbudō Jujitsu style that he teaches.[13]

Other groups using the name Goshin Budō

Some martial artists use the Goshin Budō term as the name of their dojo (training place). One example is the Goshin Budō Dojo in Garrett, Indiana, USA,[14] under the guidance of Jay Zimmermann, a student of Hatsumi Masaaki from the Bujinkan organization. This Dojo practices the Bujinkan system of martial arts, and does not practice a specific art called Goshin Budō.
