About Daitoryu

So if I had to describe Daitoryu in a nutshell, which may damn well be impossible but here’s a try at it…

daitoryuDaitoryu Aikijujutsu is the art of creating and/or exploiting misalignment in the body to either pin, throw or simply allow the opponent to fall due to that misalignment. (Then comes the devilish grin) Sometimes all of the above.

When training in classical Japanese arts, we will set aside the debate whether Daitoryu is koryu or gendai budo, one wants to preserve and preform the waza (techniques) as they were done for centuries. The truth is that like a lighthouse the adherence to tradition helps guide your training but times change and if you intend your martial arts to remain useful, then a certain amount of change must happen in order to keep it relevant.

I don’t mean to change every aspect of the art until there is nothing left of the original but rather be open-minded enough to explore the waza and it’s application after learning the original technique’s intention and application. In this way you grow in your understanding of the waza, the art and yourself.
