“Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu Hiden Mokuroku” by Katsuyuki Kondo Sensei back in print!

We would like to bring to your attention that we have republished the authoritative work by Katsuyuki Kondo, Menkyo Kaiden, titled Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu Hiden Mokuroku.

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.

You may also wish to consider our special discounted set consisting of Katsuyuki Kondo’s two outstanding instructional DVDs together with the Hiden Mokuroku book.
