Characteristics of Daito Ryu AikiJujutsu

There are some significant differences between Daito Ryu and most other martial arts.


1. Daito Ryu includes sitting techniques (which were used in feudal times in the presence of a lord as proper etiquette and in castles.)
2. The majority of techniques consist of joint manipulation in order to control an assailant. Many techniques were based on the sword arts.
3. Techniques were devised from life threatening situations where one had to fight an opponent garnishing a weapon and you were bare-handed.
