ABOUT AIKI-JUJUTSU AND NAMI RYU
Aiki-Jujutsu is a hidden or inner art in that it is not possible to see what is really making the technique work. The basic tenet is never to oppose force with force, but to direct and utilize the power of the attack to overthrow the enemy with his own strength.
Nami Ryu Aiki Heiho is a school, or system (“ryu”), for training in the ancient martial arts that were exclusively used by the Samurai warrior caste. Nami ryu is a Sogo Bujutsu – the curriculum covers a wide range of bugei (“martial arts”), which encompass skills that were once necessary for the Samurai warrior in the performance of his martial duties. Nami ryu has its basis in kenjutsu and iaijutsu, Japanese sword combat arts.
