Introduction of Gyakute-Do History
The origin of GYAKUTE-DO, i.e. KENSO RYU Jujutsu was established by Mr. Kentaro TAKEISHI who was bornin 1878 in Ibaragi prefecture. Mr. TAKEISHI mastered several BUJUTSU like IGA-RYU JUJUTSU, ICHIDEN-RYU,MUHI-RYU, SANWA MUTEKI-RYU which were transferred by many generations in that area. And finally Mr. TAKEISHI established his own style specialized GYAKUTE-DO JUTSU and called it KENSO RYU JUJUTSU. Later he moved to Tokyo and started teaching this KENSO RYU JUJUTSU to his students in the area. Since its foundation, KENSO RYU JUJUTSU was transferred over 4 generations and has made a certain influence to Japanese BUJUTSU.

GYAKUTE DO as derived from KENSO RYU JUJUTSU
1. Founder Mr. Chushudo TANAKA passed away in 1993
GYAKUTE DO was established by Mr. Chushudo TANAKA who mastered KENSO-RYU Jujutsu and other Japanese martial arts such as HAKKO-RYU Jujutsu and Karate. Unfortunately after death of Mr. Chushudo TANAKA in 1993, no one has taken over this GYAKUTE DO,accordingly GYAKUTE DO ended its short life from the history of Japanese martial arts.
“GYAKU TE DO” means “wrist/arm lock technique”. Everybody who reads this book will notice that most of the techniques use wrist/arm lock. GYAKUTE DO uses the method of most effective lever theory to use less power to defeat the enemy. That is the reason GYAKUTE DO concentrates its joint lock techniques to wrist/arm where are the weakest joints in the human body.Appling wrist joint locking onto these weakest joints, one can throw or control the attacker by less power comparingto the other similar martial arts such as Judo.If such wrist joint lock works successfully, Attacker should throw himself. That is the only way to escape from thestrong pain, otherwise the joint bone would be broken. GYAKUTE DO techniques are neither so sophisticated nor beautiful as its brother Jujutsu style of AIKI DO. Its techniques are still wild and carry over the essence of old fighting epoque.It is consist of both Hit/Kick and NAGE, KATAME techniques which makes the style a complete fighting technique. Such being the case, from every direction such as Karate, Judo , people can master GYAKUTE DO techniques smoothly. And every martial arts people can compensate its lacking points by learning GYAKTE DO.
The most unique point of GYAKUTE DO is :
Damage level given to Attacker is quite controrable. This is ideal as Self Defence Technique because you do not hurtAttacker too much. If you release Attacker in the earlier stage there is no remaining damage.On the contrary for KARATE or JUDO/AIKI DO, once you hit, kick or throw Attacker, you can not control thedamage. They might get serious injury or even die.Is it really necessary to damage the others so hard even they are criminals ? Or, are you allowed to do so ??
