Please note: I moved to California to pursue my dreams of continued learning and teaching of martial arts. I ended up in a bad situation because of a terrible person and so I’m working towards builiding myself from the ground up. I’m currently homeless and struggling, but the dream is still alive and the goal is to someday be able to teach martial arts to anyone who desires to learn completely free of cost. It’s just now that path is a bit longer and a lot more winding.

If you would like to help me out in pursuing this dream and appreciate what I’ve done and am attempting to do, then please consider donating to my PayPal to help me get the things I need to get through all this.

Kokoro-Jitsu is a martial art where self defense, health, and fitness are combined with mindfulness in a friendly, encouraging, and positive learning environment.

To see what we can offer you, please visit the menus and pages.

Kokoro-Jitsu was founded by dedicated martial arts leader Brian Lucas and is the culmination of many years of study and experience through many different arts, styles, and systems, as well as mindful meditation practice.

It is the belief of Kokoro-Jitsu that awareness, attention, focus, and the mind are the key elements of not only martial arts, but life. Teaching you to defend yourself is not difficult and doesn’t take long but teaching you to live life more fully is where the true goal of Kokoro-Jitsu lies.
