Taihojutsu

5

This is a derivative self-defence art developed within the Kenshinryu to teach a range of combat skills for violent and potentially life threatening combat. Based on the principles of Aikido, it involves a syllabus of twelve techniques only which can be applied in armed and unarmed combat against one or multiple attackers.

The reduced syllabus allows the student to learn the techniques quickly and the training method encourages their application under increasing levels of duress. This training is not suitable for Security or Law enforcement officers where there is a duty of care. It is however suitable for military personnel or those considering a military career and people whose work conditions or life environment may expose them to unacceptable risk.

Gradings are not available in this art and classes are available to adults only.
