  Seifukujitsu is the restorative art of healing, developed in Japan over 1600 years ago, introduced to the U.S. by Henry Seishiro Okazaki. Seifukujitsu means to restore and balance the whole body energy system. Few martial art schools require training in Seifukujitsu to treat sprains, strains and other injuries in the Dojo (school). Due to the rigorous training in the Kodenkan Danzan Ryu system, Seifukujitsu is used to enhance the students’ performance in physical training and knowledge. The Seifukujitsu art is a restoration Kata (form technique) of healing. Seifukujitsu Kata is a distinctive and precise form re-balancing techniques for the whole body.

Benefits of utilizing Seifukujitsu therapeutic restoration massage applications are shared by both the
Giver (therapist) and the Receiver (patient).

AJI logoA member of “American Jujitsu Institute” (AJI) Hawaii. Chartered in 1939, Honolulu, Hawaii. The institutes objective is to preserve the arts of fighting (Kodankan Danzan Ryu) and healing (Seifuku-jitsu). Henry S. Okazaki was the foremost exponent of the Asian Healing Medicine arts. He institutionalized the Arts of Asian Healing Medicine. Wrote it down in documentation form so the members are able to share, and apply.  Throughout history the institute branched out to other splintered organizations. Many of these organizations have inter-graded the methods with their new ideals. Many restructured the healing arts to accommodate to the geographic required state laws.
Members combined their personal preferences, but continued to stay within the Okazaki principles.
