The first part of this technique is the same as Ikkyo. Step backwards and lead him to the ground. But when coming back catch his fingers that are grasping your right wrist. Then apply the lock by bearing down on the wrist. Simultaneously, move your body backwards. This technique can be most painful to your partner and should not be applied too quickly in the early stages. Even at advanced levels, care must be taken. Your partner should tap to indicate submission as is done in the other martial arts. The moment he taps you should release the application.
This section on Kendo is more a manual for students thana 'Teach Yourself' attempt. It has been taken for granted that the reader is either a student already or considering starting. True Kendo, in common with older Martial Arts, will lack clarity unless it is practised. The writer studied Kendo under Master Kenshiro Abbe Sensei during the period 1955 to 1964 and wishes to thank him for all his help. He is well known as one of the leading Martial Arts teachers - he was the youngest-ever All Japan Judo champion, and also studied Kendo, Aikido and Juken Jutsu (the art of bayonet fighting derived from spearmanship). Until the end of the Second World War, the Butokukai (Martial Arts Society) controlled all gradings and teachings and Kenshiro Abbe Sensei was awarded a 6th Dan in Kendo from them, in 1945. The specific theory or system of Budo (Martial Arts) created by Kenshiro Abbe Sensei is termed Kyu-shin-do and its application is particularly easy to understand through Kendo. Kyu means a...
Ordinance of 1871 forbidding Samurai to carry swords the martial arts fell into decline and then disrepute. Some ju-jitsu experts of Kano's time were rogues and bullies and ju-jitsu acquired a low reputation. Kano, not wishing to inherit this, began his school with a new name.
James Williams is the President of Bugei Trading Company, Inc. He has been studying martial arts since 1960 and teaching since 1975. James has trained, competed in, and taught a number of different martial disciplines Japanese, Okinawan, Chinese, Philippino, as well as the Brazilian system of Jujitsu as taught by Rorion and Royce Gracie. His experience includes western wrestling, which he also coached, as well as boxing and kickboxing. His love of samurai martial traditions came with his study of the Yanagi ryu of the Yoshida-ha under Don Angier Sensei and the martial traditions of the Kuroda-ha as taught by Kuroda Tetsuzan Sensei. Knowing is being and doing. It is an understanding in the body mind that is apparent and perceptible in function. An intellectually grasped concept is not knowing, it is thinking. It exists in the fear-created mind, which is not in touch with reality. The gifts of Systema are free. Free in the sense that the more you are in harmony with Universe law the...
Each form presents a different challenge regarding stance and ma-ai (combative distance between tori and uke), and each aiki-related martial arts system explains these challenges and describes the execution of a technique in different ways so there is no one set pattern. Aiki Jujutsu, like other traditional Japanese martial arts, places comparatively little importance on kamae (combative stance) however, most aiJti-related martial art systems maintain that good posture is key to the proper execution of techniques. Acquisition of good posture requires considerable trial and error, but techniques cannot be executed without it. In general, the Daitoryu Jujutsu method emphasizes stability, application of full power, and large stepping movements, while Aiki no Jutsu systems rely less on physical power, and more on timing and on smaller steps.
The basic stance in Daitoryu is the horseback riding posture, with the body facing forward, feet spread and arms at the sides, as if one were riding a horse into battle. This is a natural, stable posture also commonly employed in Chinese martial arts, where it is said to aid in the free flow of ki.
Breathing into your stomach must become a habit and then your 'kiai' will be spontaneous and effective even when not necessarily loud. To begin with, however, you must simply remember to shout loudly from the bottom of your belly when you perform a technique. In due course, you will perhaps master 'kiai' in its real sense, and will then often be able to overcome an opponent without fighting at all To be able to convey so much confidence and will-power as to do this - simply by breathing - is to exercise the advanced martial art of 'kiai-jutsu'. This might be said to be the perfect finished form to which all the martial arts aspire.
Morihei Ueshiba (pronounced Moh-lee -hay Oo-way-she-bah) was the creator of Aikido. To his followers today, Ueshiba is known as O'Sensei, which means Great Teacher . O'Sensei was born in 1883 and died in 1969, so Aikido is one of the modern martial arts. Master Ueshiba began his studies of the martial arts shortly before 1900. He studied a number of styles of jujitsu, spear work and sword work, and was deeply influenced by the Shinto religion and the Omoto Kyo sect. In 1911 he encountered Sokaku Takeda, a master of Daito ryu Aiki-Jujitsu, and studied this form of grappling art with him for five years. If we look back over time, we see how the martial arts have been abused. During the Sengoku Period (1482-1558, Sengoku means warring countries ) loyal lords used the martial arts as a fighting tool to serve their own private interests and to satisfy their greed. This I think was totally inappropriate. Since I myself taught martial arts to soldiers during the Second World War, I became...
I have taught you the secrets of Shotokan Karate, and you have become adequate warriors. You are now carriers of the kiving art of Shotokan Karate - for all martial arts are living arts they grow and change and conform to the needs of each generation of Sensei and disciple. As with all living things, some generations can be stronger or weaker than their ancestors. You must ensure that the living art of Shotokan never becomesweak. For our style to live on, you must one day share its secrets with others as I have shared them with you. First, however, you must prove yourselves fit to carry on my name and the style of Shotokan. Go into the world to test your knowledge by fire and blood. Should you survive long enough for your own beards to gray with age, then you will know that your Shotokan Karate is strong then you will know that you are worthy to teach the art. But if you should fall from the path, do not disgrace me by teaching your weak version of the art. Better that the style of...
In the distant future of another time-line, the martial arts had become obsolete in the face of super-powerful weaponry. As such, they had been relegated to mostly ceremonial functions and were rarely if ever used in actual combat. Many of the more aggressive martial arts died out completely (or lived on secretly) in those dark times, but at least one new form was created. Even though humans of the future liked to believe themselves free from all violent impulses, they still required an occasional venting of anger and frustration. Because of the combatant nature of the martial arts, these ancient practices were deemed worthy of further study the fact that they required great mental and physical discipline as well was seen as a great plus. So, sometime in the mid- to late 23rd century, an historian and student of the martial arts decided to create his own form. Well, it wasn't actually that simple a decision, but it's as good a description as any. Working with the idea that the martial...

MR Any approach to life and martial arts that does not destroy a person's body, soul, family or nation is a correct approach. SP I do not know the answer myself but I think the potential for the influence of the System in martial arts in general and then in society at large is very great. Do you often think in terms of the potential of the System to influence society MR. I haven't made a major goal of achieving such great results in the world. But I would really like to have people who do other martial arts understand what they are doing and where they are going. What many martial arts provoke in people is pride, ego, cruelty, and aggression. The world is not very kind. It destroys a person's soul. Pride destroys a person. Anything that destroys a person's soul is not good. Negative emotions are not correct. Look at the biomechanics of other martial arts. Some destroy the body of a person. If you constantly deliver strikes against hard objects you destroy your joints. You get...
There are as many different schools of karate today as there were of judo and kendo in the old days of 'ju-jitsu' and 'ken-jitsu'. Generally speaking, the various schools or subsidiary schools are named after the pioneers or experts who founded them. Not only in karate, but in all the martial arts, each individual has his own idea of what is essential and his style will conform to it. It doesn't of course follow that each individual is qualified to found a 'school'.
Breath control is considered so basic in disciplines from singing to yoga to martial arts, that it is studied formally what can you possibly control if you can't control your own breathing Breathing exercises can be used for relaxation, autosuggestion, and the formation or modification of habits and behavior. Because breathing is automatic, semi-automatic, and unconscious, it is considered as a bridge to the subconscious and unconscious levels of mind. This bridge can be used to internalize the concepts and sensations developed during ki testing. The standard perception of breathing found throughout the martial arts is that exhalation is strong and inhalation is weak. This is one of the reasons for the powerful exhalation of breath and piercing sound of kiai.
Stanley Pranin Thank you very much for taking time out from the party to talk with us. It's a wonderful pleasure to be able to meet with you. I think even now that the System is starting to have big influence on the martial arts world. Naturally, people are very interested in the origins of the art. Because most of the martial arts that are popular came from the Asia, people are surprised to hear that this is a Russian martial art. I would like to understand a little more about how the System, that is, the predecessor of the art, was transmitted from its roots in Russia culture. Mikhail Ryabko I am a little bit surprised that people have never heard about Russian martial arts and that they are surprised to hear that they exist. Look at the huge territory Russia occupies. Someone had to protect this territory. In Russia there were always warriors who were known for their bravery. And if you look at the development of Russia in the olden times, cities were built by rivers and...
This is one of the many fighting arts developed by the Kydians (Atlantis, page 47 ). This is also one of the most brutal of Kydian martial arts. Originally, this was developed by the police forces to subdue criminals, but it spread in popularity, and was eventually available to all Kydians.
When the attack ends, the character may not do anything for the remainder of the round except defend, and may only do that with a penalty of -6 However, this attack is so impressive and cool-looking that any opponent of less than fifth level must save vs. horror factor 15 to avoid being cowed into retreat or submission. More experienced characters without martial arts ability are less impressed by flashy maneuvers and only need a 12 to save. Martial artists of fifth level or above are completely unaffected by this move, considering it the tool of a show-off and braggart. (Example Will, a first-level practitioner of Anbo-Jyutsu armed with a bo staff with which he is considered to have third level proficiency , is in a duel against Kyle, a third level Soldier with Hand to Hand Martial Arts who is armed with a sword. Will and Kyle each have three attacks per melee. The first round of combat begins Will gets a 17 on initiative and Kyle gets a 10. Normally, Will would go first, but he...
Higher grades in most traditional systems are revered, nay worshiped. This reverence doesn't squash the negative emotions in the way that the martial arts are supposed to in fact it does quite the opposite -it enlarges the ego and encourages many of the negatives that we should be driving out like demons. So we end up with a very high graded, very capable (physically) martial artist that is stuck to a pub bar by the superglue of peer pressure and ignorance. If a bar is threatening, go to a different bar and fuck what anyone else might think about it or you. They say it is a strong man that can walk away -there was never a truer statement. Your ippon should never be defending a space by the bar, or a bit of tarmac on the road. Your ippon should be over-riding all the non-starters and escaping if the circumstances allow. If
The Japanese martial arts were developed by the samurai, the professional military caste in feudal Japan. This class came into being in the tenth century. At that time, Japan was ruled by an emperor and court aristocracy, and they employed the warriors in their political struggles. As time went on, the samurai came to hold the real power in Japan, and in the twelfth century they set up the shogunate, a military dictatorship which lasted (with a break of three years in the fourteenth century) until the nineteenth century. Because the development and practice of the martial arts was rooted in the life and death stakes of warfare, the samurai could not afford to be satisfied with anything less than a real perfection of the fighting skills. As a result of this need for maximal effectiveness and efficiency, the samurai developed fighting techniques based on the principle of accord the idea that the best way to deal with a force is to work in cooperation with it rather than against it. In...
My first exposure to Systema, the Russian Martial Art popularized by Mikhail Ryabko and Vladimir Vasiliev, came in April 2001. I was in attendance at the formal presentation of a Shindo Yoshin-ryu Menkyo Kaiden to Sensei Toby Threadgill in Dallas, Texas. At the party following the ceremony, a group gathered in the living room to watch martial arts videos. At least 20 of us--mostly seasoned martial artists with decades of training experience--watched parts of videotapes of several styles and eventually got to one on a Russian martial art that most were seeing for the first time.
During this period, the samurai were relegated to bureaucratic roles, with little fighting to do. Some killed time in a life of dissipation, but others became rededicated to the pursuit of the martial arts. For many of them, however, this rededication involved a shift in the meaning of these arts. The martial arts had always stressed mental as well as physical training in preparation for combat. However, before the Tokugawa era, mental training was practiced as part of the fighting arts in order to perfect skill in fighting. In the Tokugawa period, since there was relatively little need for fighting, the fighting arts often came to be practiced as a form of mental training. For those arts which were transformed in this way--and not all were-- the aim of martial training became the attainment of a state of complete concentration and inner peace and the way of living that springs from it.
In 1922, having mastered two major styles in Okinawa, Master Gichin Funakoshi, then President of the Okinawa association of the Spirit of Martial Arts, was chosen to demonstrate karate at the first National Athletic Exhibition in Tokyo. This led to the introduction of the ancient martial art to the rest of Japan. At the urging of friends and officials, he remained in Tokyo to teach.
Gladiators, cyborgs, headhunters, and mercenaries are the most common practitioners of this combat style. Obviously, it is the skill of boxing rounded out to include a wider range of punches for a better attack capability. It doesn't have the versatility of Expert, the kick attacks of Martial Arts, or the grappling skills of Wrestling. However, a skilled boxer can quickly batter single opponents to the point where those shortcomings aren't even relevant. The defense ability of this combat style is unmatched in American combat styles. Skill Cost Equivalent to Hand to Hand Karate, Jujutsu, or Commando. It costs one more other skill than Hand to Hand Martial Arts.
Aikijutsu developed within the Aizu domain of Japan where certain families came together, bringing their own expertise in Jujutsu, swordsmanship, spearmanship, horsemanship, archery, strategy, and other war-related arts. Other non-martial arts were also valued such as calligraphy, poetry, healing arts, ethics, etiquette, and other areas of learning more related to peace. The more traditional lines of Aikijutsu today still give priority to the spiritual training of the student, and judges his or her progress by means of character, dedication, humility, willingness to contribute to the welfare of the dojo, the progress of the fellow students, and other traits that show a loyal and selfless spirit. These make a student worthwhile to be instructed in the inner secrets of the art. These fundamental principles are
These forms of martial arts are unique in the fact that the warrior cannot fight WITHOUT music. Music is required to keep the beat and in time. The reason being, they dance around, fighting combining attacks with sometimes amazing and beautiful moves, sometimes not so beautiful, but still amazing. There are a variety of forms of Dancing Martial Arts, each with certain unique attacks. General This form of martial arts usually centers around graceful twirls and leaps, meaning it has powerful kicking attacks. As well very high kicking attacks.

Restraint is often talked about in the martial arts fraternity. Does it work Doesn't it work Many police instructors have made a career out of teaching restraining techniques. Personally I think the only kind of truly effective restraint is unconsciousness. Knock them out and they're restrained. The rest of the time any kind of restraining technique is at best dodgy. The only time I have found restraints effective is when the opponent lets me put the technique on (like they do in so many police training schools), or if I am facing a very weak opponent. The rest of the time it is just too risky. Someone that wants to fight properly will not be restrained. For those times when restraint might be an option we'll explore one or two techniques, after all it is a part of fighting without fighting.
I remember hearing a great story about one of the old Japanese Sensie, Master Abbe, a world renowned martial arts teacher. He was walking down a quiet suburban street on his way home after his usual, evening teaching session. He noticed three youths hovering, several yards away on the opposite side of the street. When they approached him he was ready. 'Give us your money, or you'll get hurt,' said the leader of the three. Master Abbe looked at each one in turn, then casually took his wallet out of his jacket pocket, throwing it on the floor between himself and his antagonists. He pointed to the wallet and said, 'I'm prepared to die for that wallet. What about you ' The three would-be attackers looked at the wallet on the floor, then at Abbe, then at each
Basic sparring (kihon kumite) was first introduced into karate in the 1920s by Gichin Funakoshi. It was made possible by the contact of karate with the ethics of Japanese martial arts, which stress mutual trust between opponents. Gradually, basic sparring was developed until free style sparring and finally contest became possible. The modern student, in his own personal development, follows the same path from five- and one-step basic sparring to competition. All forms of sparring begin and end with a standing bow to one's partner.
Aikido incorporates techniques from traditional martial arts such as ju-jutsu and is rooted in the Japanese samurai warrior tradition of budo. It is this concern for the opponent that makes Aikido radically different from other martial arts. Two ancient concepts of budo are ai nuke, mutual preservation, and katsu jin ken, the saving of your enemy's
But if, on the other hand, you can control an opponent by sheer mental force - by the force of your personality - and make a peaceful settlement, this is the course you will choose. This is a discipline common to all the martial arts. It is known as 'kiai-jutsu' and is the real end of meditation in 'budo'.
