Update from Hombucho
I, Kondo Masayuki, was appointed the Headquarters Director (Hombucho) of Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu as of August 1, 2020.
With the guidance of Kondo Katsuyuki General Affairs Director (Somucho), I will do my best to preserve, spread and develop the mainstream of Daito-ryu that has been inherited by Takeda Sokaku, Takeda Tokimune and Kondo Katsuyuki. Your support same as what is given to Somucho would be appreciated. Also, I would like to ask you to cooperate with the new Headquarters including Hasegawa Sumie Assistant to Headquarters Director (Hombucho-hosa) and Usuyama Hideto Vice Headquarters Director (Fuku-hombucho).
Now, the whole world is fighting against the new coronavirus, And I think that all the students are struggling how to continue training while preventing infection. Even under such circumstances, we will be considering the following efforts as a Daito-ryu family so that we can improve our skills.
1. Online practice
We will inform you of the schedule at a later date. I hope many of you will participate.
2. Launch various SNS as Daito-ryu Headquarters
We will increase the channels to share information with everyone. Please spread to many Daito-ryu enthusiasts.
3. Organize and teach Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu techniques
It is said that the number of Daito-ryu techniques exceeds 10,000. I will organize and teach these.
4. Send Daito-ryu news
Regularly sending the information of headquarters, branches, and study groups.
5. Hold regular branch /study group chiefs’ meetings
6. Build the students network
We will improve the platform of information and the environment where it is easy to learn skills and exchange information.
