We offer training in Waboku Jujitsu, but we also offer training in Kick Boxing, MMA fighting, Ground Grappling, and Traditional Martial Arts Weapons. Our dojo is built around the students individual needs, goals, and desires. We offer up to three classes a week with up to six instructors per class. This allows us to have a LOW student to instructor ratio.

Grand Master Don Lewis
Don Lewis, a 22 year old martial artist, started Waboku Jujitsu around the year 1970. Don modified a traditional Jujitsu system to meet the criteria of modern physical education, techniques, knowledge, modern opponents, weapons, current legal regulations, and the typical American culture and students. Having studied many systems of martial arts since he was eight, he holds degrees in a number of them. He and his wife Jane Lewis are both ordained American Baptist Ministers and have worked in the mental health field for the majority of their professional careers specializing in mental illness, sexual behavior issues, and operation of mental health and faith based organizations. Both Don and Jane are retired, as two driven people can be, from the professional life and are currently enjoying their life together on the mountain tops in Virginia.
