Daitoryu AikijujitsuFirst developed in 1100 AD, Daitoryu has over 2,000 waza or techniques. Initially, Daitoryu was a Samurai art used when the warrior lost his weapon, or it was broken. Daitoryu was an unarmed means to overcome an armed opponent, take his weapon and continue fighting.
As in most Asian martial arts, there is no first strike in Daitoryu. In response to an attack, and after a block or tai sabaki movement (to avoid being struck or kicked), Daitoryu relies on what is called the Trinity of Daitoryu:
A knock-down punch or kick;
A throwing form of technique;
A controlling technique. The techniques also often attack nerve bundles and joint manipulation.
