Grandmaster Michael Davidow :

Grandmaster Davidow (Mickey) is one of the most highly respected martial artists in South Africa and holds the following international grades:

  • 8th Dan Ju Jutsu,
  • 4th Dan Judo,
  • 3rd Dan Aikido,
  • 1st Dan Goju Karate and is
  • Master of Fanchento Kung Fu for the continent of Africa.

Mickey was also a Springbok Judoka and Captained the Macabi Judo Team in 1965.


In his time, Mickey (who is opposed to being called Master) has also trained widely in Ninjitsu and Western Boxing, and was ranked second in the world in Cumberland Wrestling in the 1970’s. He has taught thousands of people in the last 30 years, many of whom have gone on to achieve great things. Perhaps the greatest evidence of this is the fact that the two current vice-presidents of the World Ju Jutsu Union are both his students.
