Summary

Summary

This work introduces the techniques of a little-known ancient art. Like other martial arts, Aiki Jujutsu Daitoryu relies not on a practitioner's physical size or strength, but on turning the force used by an opponent against him. Aiki Jujitsu Daitoryu originated in the 12th century.

Author Notes

SHIRO OMIYA studied Aiki Jujutsu Daitoryu with Kozui Tsuruyama, a second-generation disciple of Sokaku Takeda, the master who first introduced the Daitoryu to the world.
