Sensei K.D. Lintott is a 5th degree black belt in Goshinkan-Ryu Ju-Jitsu!, and a 5th degree black belt in Can-Ryu Jiu-Jitsu. Sensei Lintott has been tested by Shihan Steven W. Hiscoe 8th Dan, and promoted by Professor G. Sylvain 10th Dan (founder Can-Ryu), for all his Dan rankings since Shodan in Can-Ryu.

As a young boy he learned some boxing and dabbled in other arts on the way. He started his real training in the late 1980's on the street. He progressed to working many of the doors at local night clubs all over Calgary, but his work was mostly on the Electric Avenue. In 1990 he took Hapkido and a year or so later started private lessons in Ju-Jitsu.

He has used Ju-Jitsu many times in what could have been serious altercations’. These situations have helped him adapt his Ju-Jitsu skills to match the real-life situations that take place.

In February 2002 Sensei Lintott founded the Alberta Jiu-Jitsu Association (AJJA). This is a non-profit organization that aims to bring together Jiu-Jitsu (Ju-Jitsu) practitioners within Alberta, and to promote the art to non-members. Sensei Lintott has worked hard to encourage the growth of this organization, and its members, by providing the necessary leadership to ensure its goals and objectives are achieved. In less than a year the first Jiu-Jitsu tournament for the AJJA members and the province of Alberta was held.

Sensei Lintott has also founded the Alberta Kid Safe Association (AKSA) as an organization within the AJJA, and the ASDS organization, which was founded years earlier, is now run under the AJJA as the Black Belt College program.
