We explore Daito-ryu waza in its three executions jujutsu, aiki-jujutsu and aiki no jutsu. Aiki no jutsu being the most advanced form of Daito-ryu waza. It may appear mystical or magical but it’s neither. Many but not all Daito-ryu waza have three distinct versions, or more accurately applications: jujutsu, aiki-jujutsu and aiki.

Jujutsu employs some sort of atemi (strike), and/or kansetsu (joint manipulation), to create kuzushi (off-balancing), before moving into the resolution of a pin or throw. Because the possible combinations of atemi with kansetsu are diverse, it is difficult to describe jujutsu more specifically.

Aiki-jujutsu uses jujutsu structure to apply aiki. In other words, the joint lock or throw carry the aiki into the uke. One still upsets the balance of the uke with aiki rather than apply one’s own force, but jujutsu is used to complete the waza.

Finally, aiki employs timing, intuition and the proper application of minimal energy, if any at all, to unbalance the uke and perform the subsequent throw and/or pin.
