Join us and learn the art of Aikijutsu
Developed by the Samurai on the battlefields of Japan, and adapted by the Yama Kei Ryu for the battlefields of today.
What is Aikijutsu? Unlike aikido, aikijujutsu is a warrior combat method designed to control, cripple or even kill the attacker or opponent. Aikijujutsu can be used to subdue an attacker without pain; cause pain without injury; or to inflict pain, injury and the dislocation of joints via striking techniques against body weaknesses. Students study many martial disciplines in aikijujutsu receiving a well-rounded/effective set of combat skills. Personal improvement and awareness remains open, but the primary purpose of aikijujutsu is an effective form of combat. Aikijutsu is a martial art form that was developed and used by the highest ranking Samurai to protect the dignitaries and Emperors of Japan. Aikijutsu is a highly effective means of self-protection for men, women and young adults. The Art of Aikijutsu uses techniques and principles that form the basis of today.s Aikido and Judo. The system focuses on the use of technique, leverage, and strategy instead of brute force and muscle. The system utilizes joint locks, throws, grappling, pins, impact techniques, pressure points, arrest and restraining techniques and various weapons. In aikijujutsu training, your .partner. takes the form of an aggressor. Unlike aikido, resistance to a technique is allowed and attacks/holds are made with power and focus. The foundations of aikijujutsu were laid by Minamoto Yoshimitsu in the 9th century. The art was passed down as a bujutsu (military science) for generations. In 1180, a physician.s studies led to the technical sophistication in the area of joint-locking and twisting techniques. Aikijujutsu continued to be passed down from generation to generation as a "secret and mysterious martial art".
