Disciplines


The IYB - International Yobukan Budo disciplines are organized in two divisions, the Gendai Budo (modern budo) and the Ko Budo (ancient budo) or Koryu Bujutsu. The styles or methods founded after the Meiji Restoration in the year 1868 are considered Gendai Budo, however it is impossible to provide a precise definition. Some folks use the date of 1876, when the act prohibiting the wearing of swords was promulgated. The Koryu Bujutsu is the classical martial arts of Japan. know more...

TAIJUTSU • JUJUTSU

Taijutsu is a martial art developed by the Samurai from the old Japan. Literally means "body art or techniques" but can be translated by the "art or techniques applied only with the body". This art is known also by other names like for example Jujutsu that literally means "art of flexibility or softness". It gathers the technical groups of atemi (attack/striking techniques) and uke-waza (defence techniques), nage-waza (throws techniques), kansetsu-waza (joint locks techniques), shime-waza (choke techniques) and osae-waza (immobilization techniques).

The term Taijutsu, on the other hand, is also used to designate, in general, close-combat methods such Jujutsu combined with specific strike empty-hands methods, which is the case of the Yobukan Taijutsu that is a combination of traditional Jujutsu together with Kempo. This combination, in our days, shows a great efficiency.

The Yobukan school/style teaches also the traditional Jujutsu designate as Yobukan Jujutsu.

KEMPO

Kempo is a martial art that is translated from the japanese by "fist law or method". It combines atemi-waza (striking techniques) from the ancient chinese Ch'uan Fa (fist law) or Ch'uan Shu (fist art) with japanese taijutsu techniques. However through the years some techniques from the ancient Ch'uan Fa, which was introduced in Japan with dissemination of the Buddhism, were modified and adapted to the Japanese way of fighting.
