Goshin-jutsu can be translated as self-defence technique. Thus, it describes well the style of Martial Arts Sports Club Ronin: every technique, independent of its origin or original sports, is adjusted for self-defence purposes. Goshin-jutsu is very famous all over the world, because many different sports from karate to traditional wrestling are practiced under this name. Especially in the USA, there exists a number of goshin-jutsu clubs, which represent many different sports and styles of martial arts. Aim of adjusting their techniques especially for self-defence purposes is common for all of these clubs.

Goshin-jutsu in Martial Arts Sports Club Ronin includes:

about 85 % of modern ju-jitsu
and all together about 15 % of judo, karate, boxing, kick boxing, weapon techniques and nerve point techniques.

Modern ju-jitsu, in this context, means mainly Jukoryu ju-jitsu and graduation system of Martial Arts Sports Club Ronin follows mainly techniques of that style. Even though, matching has also an important role in the program of the club, and graduation of higher degree belts includes always matching session. Due to the philosophy of the Martial Arts Sports Club Ronin, even the good techniques are only formal and the trainee will not reach the realistic perspective of fighting without matching, that can happen standing, on the ground or by attacking and defending your self in turn.

The purpose of the goshin-jutsu in our Club is to develop both mental and physical shape of trainee. Trainings respond to the level of trainees skills by demanding more from the more experienced trainers. The idea is to integrate the trainee to the demands of the sports and not vice versa. Goshin-jutsu suits as well for women as men. Because of the dangerous nature of the techniques, we teach goshin-jutsu mainly for the people of age over 18.


History and current situation

Martial Arts Sports Club Ronin is a combat sports club that was found autumn 1996 by five people (Tero Kukkonen, Jarmo Nykyri, Heini Kauppinen, Tiina Paju and Marko Alander) living in the capital region of Finland. The founders had trained ju-jitsu and other combat sports before. Tero Kukkonen (1st Dan at that time) was elected to chairman of the club. Nowadays (October 2016), there are two of the founders, Tero Kukkonen (8th Dan, Shihan and chairman of the club) and Jarmo Nykyri (3rd Dan, vice chairman of the club) participating the activities of the club.

Shihan Tero Kukkonen 8th Dan ______Sensei Jarmo Nykyri 3rd Dan

Trainings of the club consist of modern ju-jitsu and other combat sports such as kick boxing, boxing, karate, judo, weapon techniques (modern weapons) and nerve point techniques. The style of the club is goshin-jutsu, which can be translated as self-defence technique. Martial Arts Sports Club Roni is member of the Finnish Goshin-jutsu Federation 2000 and W.E.B.B.S. international.

Grades in the club follow the order, that is commonly used in ju-jitsu, judo and karate in northern countries: white, yellow, orange, green, blue and brown belt, which are so called kyu or student degrees, and black belt (1-10 Dan or so called instructor degrees). Martial Arts Sports Club Ronin does not recognize any person or master of any style for its own great master. The open-minded attitude towards all sports and styles without commitment to any of them has always been the policy of the club. This explains also the name of the club.

Trainings are nowadays held in the Hakunila Dojo. There are four guided trainings weekly and the members of the club can also practice in so called free trainings. Club organizes different budo seminars on its own influence region.

"Some history of word RONIN"

On 11th century in Japan, the name ronin was given for farmers that deserted their land to prevent the overwhelming taxes and moved to other regions, which were not yet owned by the Buddha monasteries or aristocracy. On Edo era (1603-1868), ronin was a bushi or warrior that did not serve any particular master because this was dead or had lost his land. Many ronins founded schools teaching fighting skills in them or carried out their samurai etiquette serving as bodyguards or protectors of villages. One of the most famous ronin was Miyamoto Musashi (1584-1645) who taught ken-jutsu.
