The philosophy and principles of modern aikido are based upon more than 800 years of Japanese samurai life. The samurai tradition is one of discipline demanding physical training, etiquette, strong spirit, and philosophical insight into the conduct of life and human relationships. The techniques of aikido are derived principally from the samurai fighting art, aiki-jujutsu.
This highly developed martial art emphasized using the nature and force of an assailant's attack to subdue them.
Karatedo is an empty hand method of self-defense using blocks and strikes with both hands and feet. It was developed in Okinawa and originated from China around 1629. However, the first public demonstration of Karatedo did not take place until 1903.
International Budo Renmei teaches traditional concepts and principles and places a high demand on the validity of these techniques.
Iaido is the art of using the samurai sword. In 1867, the Meiji restoration returned power to the emperor after almost 1000 years of military rule. In 1873, the Rikugun Toyama Gakko opened, training the military in the art of swordsmanship. The essential part of the training was the use of realistic practice and Tameshigiri, or test cutting.
The techniques were based on the expertise of the Kenshi, or expert swordsman, of the period. This led to the founding of the Toyama Ryu in 1925.
