These are a few of the many locks and submissions used in Gendai Aikido.
Traditional Aikido teaches you how to defend against a Katana (long sword), Bo (long staff), and Jo (short staff). These are old world weapons which are not carried today. When was the last time you ran into someone at the grocery store who was carrying a sword? I didn’t think so. Guns and knives are the weapons of choice today. They are easy to carry and conceal. For this reason we train to disarm these weapons.
The Bo or long staff shown above, and the
Katana or long sword shown to the right.
In Gendai Aikido you will learn how to disarm and defend against modern
day weapons like; handguns, knives, baseball bats, and shotguns.
