Master Maui Saito learned Japanese Jujitsu from his father, the Great Grand Master Mark Saito, Sr.  The Great Grand Master Mark Saito, Sr., learned Japanese Jujitsu from his Grandfather, the Great Grand Master Hanshichi Saito.  The Great Grand Master Hanshichi Saito is pure Japanese and was born and raised in Fukushima Valley, Japan.   Each generation of the Saito clan has passed on the original unwatered-down combative art predating the peace time period of Japan's history.  It is Pure Authentic Japanese Jujitsu from Great Grandfather - to father - to son. 

In our school you will learn everything Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, everything Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and everything Japanese Jujitsu.  More importantly, you will learn escapes and reversals from all of the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu moves, especially their favorites; and escapes and reversals from all of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu favorites.  Okay, that was really important, important enough for me to say it again…

You will learn escapes and reversals from all Gracie and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and more, including all combative JuJitsu.  That right there will be your BJJ competitive edge - that will be your UFC edge, to win your title fight!

The teaching ability of Master Maui Saito is unsurpassed, and his extensive knowledge and skills go beyond the realm and limits of Jujitsu as it is often taught.  He was immersed in a life time of martial arts education through his family line whose techniques were extensively long held in secrecy within the family lineage until the recent time.  The mark of true success, however, is whether a teacher can impart the same skills and ability to his students.  Many teachers, instructors, trainers have excelled competitively, but fail to become great teachers who can impart the same level of skill and success to their students, so those students can rise as far or even farther.  This important fact is crucial in determining the right place to train.  Is the success of the student the most important goal to your instructor, teacher, trainer?  Is that success meant for your own long term personal goals?  You will have no doubt, when you walk in and meet Master Maui Saito, of the intention to provide you with the highest quality and superior training that will make you more than great, and go beyond the levels you thought you could attain, whether a complete beginner or already in the highest leagues.  You will thoroughly enjoy the atmosphere of close comradery, family and individual attention to your successful training that cannot be equaled anywhere!  Join our family, join our team!
