The 2017 Togakushi Cup will be held in the greater Detroit area. Due to the nature of the event and for the security of the participants, the event location will only be revealed to registered attendees. For travel purposes please use area code 48375 for hotels.

The event will take place in an indoor sports facility and we are currently looking into using a synthetic turf field that has 2 inches of rubber padding to add to the look of training on a natural surface. We think this may give an interesting look to our event while still having plenty of protection.


This event is not about proving who is the best fighter among the groups. It is about challenging yourself and improving your technique. So put your Jujutsu skills to the test. No, this is not real fighting or combat, but it is a game for warriors to keep their fighting skills sharp during peaceful times.


Register and participate! You will not regret it. It will be a learning experience for all!
