Hakko-ryo or Hakko-ryo Jujutsu is a school or 'style' of jujutsu related to Daito-ryu founded in 1941 by Okuyama Ryuho (1901-1987) a student of Sokaku Takeda and a practitioner of shiatsu. The school is now headed by his son Okuyama Ryuho. The headquarters or hombu dojo is located in ?miya-ku, Saitama, Saitama Prefecture.
The influence of oriental medicine is one of the distinguishing elements of the style and can be seen in the Koho Shiatsu system taught to its members at the higher levels of the art, as well as in the jujutsu system's emphasis on using pressure points and manipulation of the opponent's body through both the skeletal structure and the body's meridians...
