About Tenchi Ryu JiuJitsu and Judo

Established in 2005 by Sensei Dan Prager, Tenchi Ryu literally means heaven and earth school, so-named to emphasise the integration of knowledge and application, the coordination of mind and body, the blending of cooperation and competition, and more besides!

Great atmosphere, the instructors are very helpful and welcoming to new students and still make sure it is challenging. They make sure you understand the fundamentals and the traditions behind the classroom actions. — Barry

Our teaching emphasises cooperative learning, friendly competition, technical excellence, and realistic self-defence in a safe and fun environment.

  • Jiu-jitsu and Judo are taught together on Wednesday nights

Who trains here?

Most of our students are young women and men studying at Monash University. Many Monash alumni continue to train with us after graduating.

Adults and older teenagers who are not studying at Monash are also welcome to try out and train at Tenchi Ryu.
