The Techniques of Yoseikan Budo

Because Yoseikan Budo is an extremely broad style, drawing its techniques from aikido, judo, jujutsu, karate and kobudo, it is almost impossible to present an exhaustive list of included techniques. However, the general instructional program of the Yoseikan captures a good deal of the richness of the art. It is hoped that the instructional material available here will grow in richness over time; as with Yoseikan Budo itself, it will probably remain forever a work in progress.
