Small Circle Jujitsu, eclectic in style and evolutionary by nature, is continually progressing towards a higher standard. It is understood that no one system has all the answers and it is our goal to strive for better ones. Professor Jay’s teachings give us the ability and tools to discover, perfect and improvise. The open sharing of knowledge has been a trademark of the Professors and it is in this spirit of sharing that we can develop to our greatest potential on our chosen path. Although Small Circle Jujitsu Concepts are relatively modern ones, based on traditional styles, we choose to move forward honoring the past but not dwelling in it.

Within the Small Circle Jujitsu family there are many talented instructors with a broad range of skills, operating out of a number of dojos. This site only lists dojos that have been qualified to teach Small Circle Jujitsu by the Head Instructor of the style, Professor Leon Jay or by the founder, Prof. Wally Jay and have appropriate certification and current membership of a type specified below.
