Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu is an ancient Japanese martial art founded by Minamoto no Yoshimitsu Shinra-Saburo. It has been handed down in Takeda families, and it was firstly disclosed to the public by Sokaku Takeda in Meiji period. The main lineage was inherited by Tokimune Takeda, a son of Sokaku, and further inherited by Katsuyuki Kondo, who was the only individual to have received the "Menkyo Kaiden" from Tokimune Takeda.
Technic of Daito-ryu
Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu is noted, as the name suggests, for emphasizing the principles of "Aiki". From ancient times the admonishment to "attack where the opponent has been unbalanced" has been a fundamental axiom of Oriental martial arts. In Daito-ryu, the principle of "how to unbalance the opponent" is referred to as "Aiki", and there are many oral transmissions and secret teachings pertaining to the various aspects of "Aiki".
