Traditional Martial Arts – Authentic Japanese Jujutsu – in Severna Park, MD
Taikyoku Budo brings together classical methods of grappling and striking with a modern practicality mindset. Our focus is effectiveness not simply tradition for tradition’s sake. Our system relies on equal parts principle, technique, and pressure-testing, without the latter a traditional martial art becomes an artifact instead of a living tradition. Taikyoku Budo is a Living Tradition of Effectiveness. Our belief is that all martial movement can be reduced down to five basic ‘themes’ or kyoku. With Taikyoku (‘great themes’) as our framework, we explore methods of grappling and striking at different combative ranges and with different levels of combative intent. Driven by our Internal Strength practice — Taikyoku Kiko, a set of Chinese Internal Martial Art inspired Qigongs — Taikyoku Budo is truly something unique, Aikijujutsu as it was originally intended, powerful and effective!
