The Daitoryu is a brutally effective fighting method thought to have been
first developed more that a thousand years ago by members of the Japanese
imperial family. It was then refined and honed in great secrecy through
centuries of hand-to-hand combat by highly trained warriors. Its techniques were
jealously guarded until late in the nineteenth century, when it was first
introduced to the world by master sokaku Takeda, who began to accept students
from around the country.

It was this tradition that Morihei Ueshiba spent years studying just before
he set out on his own to found Aikido – which has in recent years become one of
the world’s most popular martial arts. The roots of Aikido are in the Daitoryu,
and for that reason Aikido practitioners will want to learn all they can about
this matial art.

The Hidden Roots of Aikido is the first book to appear in English that offers
a detailed visual introduction to techniques of the Daitoryu tradition. Heavily
illustrated with approximately 800 photographs, it gives a clear, complete
picture of the steps involved in about 90 techniques. Its substantial section on
history and theory takes a close look at the Daitoryu’ historical background and
philosophy, while a glossary of terms provides a handy list of the most
important terms.

The Hidden Roods of Aikido will be an indispensable learning tool for
students of the Daitoryu, and a valuable reference for other martial arts
