Re: Diato Ryu Aikijujutsu's relation to Aikido
Sorry I lost track of this discussion...
The book I was referring to comes with videos of the techniques as well.
'Daito ryu Aikijujutsu; Hiden Mokuroku: Ikkajo' by Katsuyuki Kondo, Menkyo Kaiden of the Mainline school.
I never did check on whether omote and ura are counted as separate techniques...I still don't think so. I'm doing a late spring cleaning at home...perhaps I can check tonight. I cannot stress enough the difference in the techniques in the ikkajo and nikkajo series (30 distinct techniques in each) between what we see in aikido as ikkyo and nikkyo. What we call ikkyo is ippondori...and it is definately NOT just a difference in names.
The book referenced in the last post 'The Hidden Roots of Aikido: Aiki Jujutsu Daitoryu'
by Shiro Omiya has had some controversy associated with it I believe. There were posts on it on e-budo, which is down right now. When it comes back up, I suggest doing a search on the commentary there.
