Associated with the Genbukan is the Kokusai Jujutsu Renmei (KJJR). Established by Grandmaster Shoto Tanemura in 1991 for the preservation and transmission of authentic Japanese Jujutsu. Unfortunately today, very few jujutsu schools outside of Japan practice what could be considered authentic jujutsu. Having lost the connection with their Japanese roots, they have evolved into eclectic arts. The purpose of the KJJR is to make available training to those who seek traditional jujutsu.

The KJJR follows a standard kyu/dan system. After 3rd dan, the student may specialize in one of the ryu which Grandmaster Shoto Tanemura is the Soke of, and receive scrolls up to menkyo kaiden level.

The following are a few of the ryu from which the KJJR bases its knowledge:

               Hontai Takagi Yoshin ryu
               Kukishin ryu
               Asayama Ichiden ryu
               Tatara Shinden ryu
               Bokuden ryu
               Yagyu Shingan ryu
               Tenshin ryu
               Itten Chukai ryu
               Araki Shin ryu

The KJJR is world wide in scope and encourages the participation of experienced martial artists who exhibit the potential to learn the KJJR system.
