Bonus footage: This DVD also contains an excellent Daito-ryu demonstration by Katsuyuki Kondo Sensei taken from the Kobudo Demonstration held at the Nippon Budokan in Tokyo in 1988. Kondo Sensei gives an outstanding performance that amply displays the power and precision of Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu technique. A wide array of joint-locks, body manipulations, and pinning techniques characteristic of Daito-ryu are displayed.
