Aikido Founder Morihei Ueshiba met Sokaku in 1915, and immediately became engrossed in training. Daito-ryu, in Morihei’s words, “opened his eyes to budo.”

Bio of Katsuyuki Kondo
Katsuyuki Kondo was born in Tokyo in 1945. He began his training in Daito-ryu aikijujutsu as a teenager under Tsunejiro Hosono and later Kotaro Yoshida, a friend and senior in Daito-ryu to Morihei Ueshiba. With an introduction from Yoshida, Kondo made periodic visits to Hokkaido starting in 1961 to practice under Tokimune Takeda Sensei, son of Sokaku Takeda. He continued his training under the Daito-ryu headmaster for 32 years.
Tokimune certified Kondo as a Daito-ryu instructor (kyoju dairi) in 1974. In 1988, Kondo was awarded the menkyo kaiden by Tokimune and also appointed Soke Dairi (representative of the headmaster). Kondo currently operates the Shimbukan Dojo in Tokyo which has functioned as the Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu Hombu Dojo since shortly after Tokimune Takeda’s passing. Kondo is also one of Japan’s leading authorities on swordsman, calligrapher, and Zen master Tesshu Yamaoka.
Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu by Katsuyuki Kondo Hombu-cho of the Tokyo Shimbukan Dojo. Volume two of this series continues with the essential basics of Daito-ryu and covers the following techniques:

This is the first book in English to introduce the technical curriculum of Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu as originally taught by Sokaku Takeda. It contains the 31 techniques of the ikkajo series of the Hiden Mokuroku, the first level of study in Daito-ryu.
The arts of Daito-ryu form the basis for most of the techniques of modern aikido, the martial art created by Morihei Ueshiba O-Sensei. The international success of aikido has in turn rekindled great interest in Daito-ryu and the legendary figure of Sokaku Takeda.
This volume also features a historical essay by Aikido Journal Editor-in-chief Stanley Pranin on the life of Sokaku Takeda, his son the late Headmaster Tokimune Takeda, Menkyo Kaiden-holder Katsuyuki Kondo, and the present status of Daito-ryu.
