Daito-Ryu Aiki - Arm locks, Hand Locks & Choke Holds - Extreme Aikido Technique (This book is now out-of-print, and I have the last remaining copies). Daito-Ryu Aiki was developed as a defensive martial form designed to be used by samurai who were stationed inside palace grounds. This volume focuses on methods of applying leverage and slight movements against an opponent's joints, and extremities to control, restrain and incapacitate him.
Daito-ryu utilized aspects of other schools of budo, particularly Ono-ha Itto-ryu. This afforded practitioners the opportunity to experience the gestalt of budo, and to transform the art into one of greater breadth.
Very richly illustrated guide to this Japanese martial art form. All basic moves thoroughly explained in step by step photo sequences. Many close-up views to help eliminate guess-work.
