Daitōryū Aiki-jūjutsu is a traditional Japanese martial art that has been passed down from generation to generation within the Takeda family of the Aizu domain and was first presented to the public by Takeda Sokaku at about the end of the 19th century. Daitōryū Aiki-jūjutsu today is a cul-tural heritage of the Japanese warrior cas-te with a long history and tradition. It was developed as a means of self-defense against unprovoked violence, with the ultimate goal of eliminating violence rather than causing it. This is one of the reasons why Daitō ryū relies on forms (kata) and their practice, but does not involve any kind of competition. Moreover, as a classical Japanese martial art, Daitōryū means more than just pure self-defense: it offers a way to tame your body and mind with the intention of developing your personal character and contributing to the broader social prosperity.
