Lineage: The Furui Ryu Jiu Jitsu style comes directly from the Fuji Ryu Goshindo Jiu Jitsu lineage. Fuji Ryu Goshindo school of Martial Arts was created / founded by Sugawara Geshu in 1962 in Miyagi Prefecture in Japan. Sugawara Geshu held the position as Chief Instructor of Physical Education studies at Kokushikan University, a notable Judo and Kendo university in Japan to this day, and it is here that he taught a range of Martial disciplines including Aikido, Judo and Goshindo. Sugawara Geshu died in July 1985. In 1969 New Zealander John Bonniface attended Kokushikan University as a Physical Education and Martial Arts student. On his return to New Zealand in 1976 John Bonniface opened the New Zealand chapter of Fuji Ryu Goshindo school of self defence.
