Daitō-ryū Aiki-jūjutsu is the parent art to Aikido and many other martial arts. We practise Daitō-ryū as part of the Ginjukai, overseen by our teachers Howard Popkin and Joseph Brogna.
The Ginjukai is unique among styles of Daitō-ryū for its heavy emphasis on “aiki no jutsu”. This style of Daitō-ryū emphasizes highly effective techniques for unbalancing, redirecting, and controlling an opponent. Students of Aikido and other martial arts regardless of rank can benefit from the advanced concepts practised in this martial art to enhance their own arts.
