Aiki jujutsu was the most sophisticated of the unarmed fighting arts of the Samurai warriors of ancient Japan. Aiki jujutsu evolved from the sword in the cauldron of close quarter combat, the most demanding of human physical conflict. These techniques evolved over centuries of intense personal warfare and reflect the deep understanding that was gained by these warriors.
For the ancient Samurai the necessity of a highly functional grappling art was essential due to the nature of edged weapon based conflict. In these engagements the breaks, throws, strikes, and unarmed defense against weapons were used both with and without the sword in their hands. The techniques used were identical to those used with the sword. Aiki jujutsu literally evolved from the sword techniques and strategy demonstrated on this DVD show this relationship. Secrets that have been hidden for centuries are demonstrated and explained.
