This special consists two instructional DVDs on Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu by Katsuyuki Kondo Sensei. Kondo Sensei is the leading figure in the word of Daito-ryu, having received the Menkyo Kaiden from Headmaster Tokimune Takeda, the son of Sokaku Takeda.

Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu, the precursor to aikido techniques, was a martial art taught in the first part of twentieth century Japan by the famous Sokaku Takeda of the Aizu clan, a certified martial arts’ genius. 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.”

The “Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu” - Hiden Mokuroku series” DVDs by Kondo Sensei are the perfect introduction to Daito-ryu for beginners and experienced martial artists alike. Expertly demonstrated by Kondo Sensei ,these two DVDs cover all of the techniques contained in the Hiden Mokuroku transmission scrolls of the formerly secret Daito-ryu school.

* In addition, as a special bonus, we are adding a one-year subscription to the Aikido Journal Members Site.

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.
