Menkyo Kaiden Katsuyuki Kondo on Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu

Quantity:

A nicely done video that presents the basic concepts of Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu as taught by Sokaku Takeda and his son Tokimune Takeda. Note particularly the emphasis on balance-breaking and control of uke throughout. Kondo Sensei states clearly that it is not possible to take ukemi from these techniques as they are designed to destroy the body. Nage releases the pressure to allow uke’s fall and permit safe practice. He also mentions that we should all conduct our lives in such a way so as not to place ourselves in dangerous surroundings and avoid conflict. We should use of strategic abilities to seek to live peaceful lives.

  1. I found the following link regarding a Frenchman, Mr. Alain Floquet’s Daito Ryu Aikijujutsu Kyoju Dairi (English translation below) that he received from a Takeda Munemitsu… Isn’t Kondo Sensei the only recipient of such title? Then who is Takeda Munemitsu?

    En février 1997, Maître Takeda Munemitsu, le nouveau Soke du Daïto Ryu Aïkijujutsu, remis le Kyoju Dairi du Daïto Ryu Aïkijujutsu pour l’Europe à Maître Alain Floquet (transmis par l’intermédiaire de Monsieur Gérard Clerin lors d’un séjour au Japon).

    Kondo Sensei spend many years studying directly under Takeda Tokimune Sensei. How can a person attain the same status after a few short trips to Japan?

    This should be clarified.
