What is Daito ryu Aiki Jujutsu
Daito ryu Aiki Jujutsu is an ancient Japanese Martial Art that is said to have originated in the 11th century of feudal Japan. There are over 2800 techniques in Daito ryu Aiki Jujutsu.
The guiding principles of aiki jujutsu were originally derived from Japanese sword fighting. Each movement is aimed at maximum efficiency and is focussed on using the opponents own attacking energy against them. Aiki Jujutsu is well suited for women because it does not rely on brute strength.
It is nearly impossible to adequately explain what Aiki Jujutsu is as it has to be experienced first hand to be fully appreciated. Aiki Jujutsu is not just a self defence, it has been described as a personal journey that helps the practitioner to unlock the mind and body to discover inner power. This journey of discovery is said to have no end point with many of the long term Japanese practitioners still discovering new applications well into their 70’s and beyond.
