Daito Ryu Aikijujutsu Study Group with Sensei Roy Goldberg April 8, 2010
Daito Ryu – a 1200 year old art, which originated from the Minamoto Clan, is the parent of many Japanese martial arts, as stated by Stanley Pranin – the Chief Editor of Aikido Journal, a high ranking aikidoka and author of several texts. He states “that categorically the major influence on the development of Aikido is Daito Ryu and it is difficult to find a movement in Aikido that does not originate in Takeda’s jujutsu form”. The greatest disseminator of Daito Ryu was Sokaku Takeda. One of his most senior students was Horikawa Kodo. His emphasis to him was the highest level and most difficult Aiki techniques, which concentrate on connection with subtle Kazushi (off balancing).
Goldberg (Shingen) Sensei is the East Coast Representative of the North American Daito Ryu Aikijujutsu Kodo Kai. Sensei is the highest ranking student of Hawayo Kiyama Shihan – The President and Chief Instructor of NADRAKK. Goldberg’s Sensei’s goal is to pass down Daito Ryu (Japan’s National Treasure) to serious students, as presented to him by the Hombu Dojo and Kiyama Shihan. Sensei believes that in the martial arts, one teaches only to continue his own unfinished study.
