Aikijujutsu is a martial discipline that focuses on the Japanese principle of aiki, in which a practitioner blends with and defeats an opponent by using one's internal energy (ki or chi). Various disciplines of jujutsu and aikijujutsu can trace their lineage back to Daito-ryu. Conflicting stories state that either Shinra Saburo Minamoto (1045-1127), or a doctor Yoshimitsu in 1180 laid down the foundation for Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu by discovering the mechanics of the joints and muscle attachments while dissecting cadavers. From these discoveries, joint-locking skills, techniques to cause muscle twisting, and strikes to vital points were formalized and perfected during battle.
