Aikido Self Defense for the Modern Warrior Vol. I



Shuyokan Ryu is a martial art teaching system made up of techniques taken from the traditional martial arts of Yoshinkan Aikido, Kodokan Judo and Jujitsu, and Shotokan Karate Jutsu. Shuyokan Ryu stresses, “self defense”, not fighting. The founder and headmaster, Soke David Dye, has taken these techniques and put them into a practical form of martial art based on his 34 years as a police officer in California and his martial arts training and teaching since 1962. His self-defense system is better known as the “Samurai Cops System of Self-Defense”. This Aikido series is a three volume set coveing the complete style of Shuyokan Ryu Aikido.

Volume #1- Techniques of Kotegaeshi (Reverse Hand)

Volume #2- Techniques of Shihonage (All Direction Throw) and Irminnage (Entering Throw)

Volume #3- Handgun, Knife and Club Disarming Techniques

    Only flaw is that I wish these DVDs were longer…, September 2, 2010

    I own ALL three of “The Aikido Self Defense for the Modern Warrior” series, and I really enjoy them. I just wish they were a bit longer. A half an hour is just not long enough, but ‘Sensei Dye’ does cover a lot in the short amount of time on each DVD. This DVD focuses on “The Kotegaeshi”– basically, a wrist lock reverse throw. There are so many variations of how you can turn the uke’s or oponent’s attacks against them. There has to be hundreds (at least) of variations in Kotegaeshi alone–which is amazing, and why I love this MA so much!

    I’ll eventually be signing up for Aikido classes, but I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t learn a thing or two while watching this video. Practicing this stuff, is a good thing to get you ready for the dojo, so you’ll at least know a little bit about what they are talking about and referring to. Especially if you don’t know any even basic Japanese–which I do know a little bit. These DVDs are a great little tool to warm you up, get you going in the right direction… and finally, get ready for the mat. Veteran Aikidokas might really enjoy them, too, so they can continue to perfect their craft. That’s just my personal opinion, though, so take it how you wish.

    Anywho… like I said… these DVDs are pretty good and informative, but just so expensive and TOO DARN SHORT!!! It makes me hunger for more, more, more!! Which I’m sure that’s exactly what these guys want if they continue to put more volumes out on DVD. This one came out a few years go, so these may be the only three they decide to put out. So…….. until I can get to the dojo–being such a busy gal and all–these will remain my guides. I may need to spend a lttle bit more time on youtube, and read, read, read as well LOL! But soon… it will be time to for me to ‘put the belt on.’ 😉

    Great primer for those who want to kick arse like Steven Segal, but a practical approach; you can actually see yourself using this in certain situations. Practice this with caution, please.
