The Principles of Advanced Budo Details

Aiki DVDs, Karate DVDs, Sogo Budo DVDs

Takeshin Okuden explained and illustrated as only video can.

Your technical study of Budo began with basics. Next, you developed numerous techniques, then variations of those techniques. You have developed quite a repertoire, but you may not completely understand why your techniques work or why they work only sometimes. You have the knowledge and you have the talent; until now, you may not have had the principles upon which all techniques are based. This three DVD set reveals the hidden keys to answering many of your unasked questions. Unlock a treasure chest of knowledge from both hard and soft arts in this unique set of videos. These Takeshin principles can be applied to all empty hand martial arts!

I've been watching your videos for nine years.   Even thought I practice Tae Kwon Do, I have found your ideas to be as applicable to our techniques as they are to Aiki-ju-jutsu techniques.   The insight that I have gained from your Principles of Aiki, as well as from your Principles of Advanced Budo Videos, has been invaluable to my understanding of how to apply techniques under different circumstances. I used to by every martial arts book and magazine that I could.   I was often disappointed by most authors who provided little information beyond the obvious. Since I saw your Principles [of Aiki] videos I have not purchased any other book, except from you.   I have found more USEFUL information in one hour of any of your videos than in all of the books and magazines I had read in the eight years prior. Thank you for producing the best and most widely applicable martial arts instructional videos that I have ever seen. I enthusiastically recommend your videos to any martial artist, regardless of style.
