DAKEN TAIJUTSU

kumiuchiThis art (jutsu) consists of locks, entanglements, strangling, striking and kicking, as well as the use of small weapons such as shuriken. The Taijutsu (jūjutsu) techniques of Kukishin-ryū were altered by the seventh head of the school Kiyotaka Kuki , and organized by his son Sumitaka. This was because the techniques of Atekomi (striking) originated at times when armor was worn and became outdated. These techniques were modified to fit in with the early Edo-jidai. In the late Edo era, the twenty-fifth Sōke , Takatomo Kuki, devised the Kihongata that consisted of eight techniques used for teaching the basics of the Ryū-ha arts to beginners- however, this review did little to quell its brutality in learning and teaching. In an effort to make safer to learn and teach, Takatomo altered the techniques so that beginners could practice without suffering injuries. Takatomo served at Nijyo castle in Kyoto, where on February 28, 1864 he visited the Imperial Court and demonstrated his new methods to the emperor (from Wikipedia).

Each level is built up on the previous level. In the first level techniques are simpler and the opponent doesn’t resist so much. In each following level the opponent is also getting better and makes better attacks. From the middle of Ōkuden Kata and the whole Shirabe Moguri Kata the opponent attack’s freely as he like. This demands that the practitioner have studied the previous techniques thoroughly so that he can do each technique good under a stressful situation.
