History of Jujistu
since the end of the war ,and particularly during the last(5) decada, the ancient Japanese martial arts of jujitsu & aiki jujitsu has enjoyed a rapidly expanding popularity,not only in the country of its origin but also abroad,especially in the U.S.A ,Europe,and Southeast Asia originally.

l arts were simply methods of defense and attack used in serious conbat that consisted of primitive handto-hand and stick fighting techniques. At times a small and com-paratively weak man would overcome a bigger opponent and when the reason for his victory was appreciated a new method would be formulated. Tus, over the yeas,teachers and practitioners of the arts.......sometimes at considerble risk to themselves ......have refined and developed these techniques which today stand up to scientific scrutiny.

Grandmaster Irving soto founded the method of Atemi ju jitsu aiki jujitsu techinques. Atemi are blows delivered against certain vulnerable points of the body. we call this metsubushi (''smashing of the eyes''). Atemi jujitsu simply is the gentle arts of self-defense by way of definition jujitsu is the way of the mind and spirit.jujitsu is a series or combination og techniques that have been separated into other arts. why was jujitsu separated into specific do or ways may have become too complexas an arts becouse it never stop changing with the time. new teachinques. Atemi jujitsu has a lots of combinations and locks and veriations that you see today in MMA.

ORIGINALLY IN INDIA

Jujitsu originally was developed in India, spreading throughout Southeast Asia and reaching Japan.
There it became an important part of the military training among the bushi (samurai) class during the kamakurap period (1185-1333). It was taught to disarm warriors so they could defend themselves against enemies who were still armed. Thus, the techniques of kumi-tachi or yawara described in the 13th-century Buddhist work konjaku-monogatari (story of past and present). Over the centuries various schools developed, the ancient military techniques of kumi -tachi or yawara described in 13th century Buddhist work konjaku -monogatari (story of past and present), while other schools developed wajutsu, kogo-soku, hakuda, shudaku, and kempo tach techniques which combined movements and counting grips adopted from Chinese methods of combat. Jujitsu became recognized martial arts during the Edo period (1603-1867. when Japan was at peace.

The ronin (masterless samurai founded many schools and spread jujitsu techniques throughout the country. The Techniques were codified at the beginning of the Meiji period (1868-1912), when samurai were forbidden to carry swords while feuds between noble families were prohibited.Atemi strikes are aimed at key areas of the body: nerve endings, arteries running close to bone, organs, sensitive and vulnerable joints like elbows and knees. These strikes can be made with virtually any part of the body, open hand, fist, fingers, elbow, toes, heel, knee, even your head - all are viable tools for attacking an aggressor's key atemi points.

A brief history

Atemi was developed in Asia thousands of years ago. In China it became known as dim mak, (death touch) while the Japanese, called it Atemi; a system of strikes and painful joint holds aimed at one of the central nervous system's 365 "pressure points." Paradoxically many of these points are also used in the healing art of acupuncture, which began its development at about the same time.



For many years it remained exclusively in China but as Chinese and Japanese cultures intermingled, the art migrated to Japan. The early masters spent many hours researching human anatomy in their quest for atemi perfection. They toiled over anatomical charts and experimented on prisoners of war and criminals. They immersed themselves totally in this learning, committing to memory their secret knowledge, refining it as they progressed and keeping the secrets of Atemi within the confines of their immediate families or clans.



During the 15th century, the samurai warriors began to assimilate Atemi strikes into their systems of battlefield unarmed combat - the martial arts. Atemi strikes gave them several advantages: Atemi strikes require no flamboyant stances, no flashy movement, they are direct and decisive. The samurai could employ a fatal blow quickly to end a life threatening confrontation or a use a quick disabling strike that would render the opponent helpless but alive for interrogation. - minimum power, little effort and maximum effect. Various modern jujitsu, karate and ninjitsu systems employ atemi strikes however, very few people have a complete understanding of the original art. The true masters were very selective about the students with whom they shared this knowledge.

Biography WHO IS
GRANDMASTER IRVING SOTO?


ATEMI THE FORGOTTEN ART BY

Picture

The art of atemi was developed in Asia more than 200 years ago, along with the science of acupuncture. The Chinese practiced the art of dim mak, or death touch. In Japan the touch of death is called atemi.

Atemi focuses on striking one of the 365 points in the central nervous system. It was valued as a treasure of the masters for many centuries. The art is so deep and complex that it requires a mastery of human physiology. To this day, scientists cannot understand why a single strike to the central nervous system can kill a man.

Ancient Tradition

By tradition, practitioners were not allowed to teach atem,i only a highly skilled master within the family could teach the art of atemi. The bushido code required that a warrior must learn enlightenment and the five principles of earth, water, fire, wind, and void and that a warrior also acquire the five skills of accuracy, timing, ki or chi (internal energy), mind control, and instinct in order to become a proficient warrior.


As atemi continued to develop through the centuries, the Chinese divided the art into 81 points; each point was based on one of the five elements or principles. Atemi continued to be tested for thousands of years in remote regions of China. As the Chinese and Japanese cultures continued to evolve and intermingle, the art of atemi was passed to Japan. Soon the mystical science of mind was added to atemi and its power went to a new level. Stories began to circulate around Asia about wise masters who could kill a person without touching him; this was atemi at its highest level.

Other Systems

Atemi became extremely popular during the 15th century. At the same time, ninjutsu began to flourish and grew throughout Japan for the next four centuries. In the 16th century wing chun was developed by a Buddhist nun. Both wing chun and ninjutsu incorporated atemi into their systems, While other systems attempted to include elements of atemi to increase and augment their techniques' potency in judo,

for example there are three major division. The third and final division is known as atemi-waza, ate waza, or simply atemi. Jigoro Kano made atemi-waza, or vital point striking techniques, an important part of judo after learning them from gichin funakoshi; atem-waza is so deadly that it is not allowed in judo competition, and is taught only to high-ranking belts. Other examples of systems that use atemi are Tatsu Tanaka,s modernized from of jujitsu calledgoshin-jutsu part of the modernization included an emphasis on atemi-waza.Yet another form of jujitsu known as Hakko -ryu atemi strikes and touches based on the principles of koho shiatsu kenpo, too, emphasizes various methods of striking the anatomicalvital points; However, very few people gained a complete understanding of atemi, the true atemi master went underground, becoming even more stringent and selective about the students with whom they shared their knowledge.

By the 1940s, the complete art of atemi was known only by one master, Grandmaster koshimitsu Yamamoto , who had been taught by Soke Sokaku
Takeda. Grandmaster yamoamoto selected ten ninth-degree black belt out of 200 student to whom he would teach the atemi art. Only one of those ten students was non- Japanese, an American named grandmaster Irving Soto who had been adopted and raised from infancy by Chinese in New York’s Chinatown. This gave him an insight into asian culture and intensive martial arts studies was possessed by very few non-Asians.

With time Grandmaster Irving Soto became Grandmaster koshimitsu Yamamoto's best student. He became so proficient at the art of atemi that he was given the title warlord by Grandmaster koshimitsu Yamamoto.

Yamamoto gave Grandmaster Irving Soto his ancient samurai swords and his tenth degree black belt/cover red belt. When Grandmaster koshimitsu Yamamoto Yamamoto died, he left Grandmaster Irving Soto as head of the international bushido federation, the first non-Japanese, TO HEAD THE ORGANIZATION.

Before his death,GM koshimitsu Yamamoto made one final request to his best student that he would make sure the art of Atemi lived on into the twenty-first and beyond. With the blessings of his master, Grandmaster Irving Soto opened the first dojo in New York to make this wish a reality. Soto named his system Atemi aiki juitsu which stands for the life force, also known as chi flow, that everyone possesses, chi flow is not only vital to physical health and generating power, it also permeates and enhances all facets of life, especially spirituality. The "do" stands for the way that an individual chooses to walk in life following in the footsteps of the masters such as Jigro Kano, Morihei Ueshiba, and Gogan yamamgucchi, Grandmaster irving Soto broke from tradition and brought the most secret and powerful art from Asia to the west. Grandmaster Soto, trained in Japan for 18 0f his 52 years in the martial arts, which emphasizes the principles of honor, respect, and discipline, and because the atemi art Soto constantly reminds his students that power and humility are interlocking forces that balances each other.Atemi strikes are aimed at key areas of the body:

nerve endings, arteries running close to bone, organs, sensitive and vulnerable joints like elbows and knees. These strikes can be made with virtually any part of the body, open hand, fist, fingers, elbow, toes, heel, knee, even your head - all are viable tools for attacking an aggressor's key atemi points.

WHO IS
GRANDMASTER IRVING SOTO?

Grandmaster Soto developed the Art of Atemi jiu Jujitsu Te. The power of Atemi, the art of striking Grandmaster Soto defines Aremi as follows:

A Accuracy

T- Timing

E- Energy

M Mind Control

I Instinct

These five characters comprise the Art of Atemi –jiu jitsu Te. Since each punch is striking a vital or sensitive area, every blow can be devastating.

Definition of:Atemi Aiki jiujitsu
by Grandmaster Soto

ATEMI- "Body Blows" (from Ateru, to strike, and Mi, body). Atemi are blows aimed at the vital or weak points of an opponent's body in order to paralyze, by means of intense pain. Such blows can produce loss of consciousness, severe trauma and even death, according to which point is struck. A good, all-around knowledge of these vital points is necessary to avoid accidents during training. Knowledge of the location of such points and the way of striking them is generally reserved for Budoka of black belt standard or higher, in the empty-hand martial arts. The smaller the striking surface used in Atemi, the greater the power of penetration and thus the greater effectiveness of the blow. Atemi technique, or Atemi-waza, is very ancient and almost entirely based on knowledge of the anatomy and the points and meridians used in acupuncture.

Atemi-Waza -Jiu jitsu, A group of fundamental movements (Kata) carried out either in Suwari-waza (kneeling down, face to face) - Hakko-dori, Kao-ate, Hiza-gatame or standing - Hakko Zeme Dori, Tachi Hiza-gatame, Mae Kata-te Hakko-dori - and their variations. All these movements focus on seizing the wrists, Te-hodoki.

Zen enlightenment - ne-kung - internal strength, mind control of the body, healing with the universe and the practice of Chi enables students to cultivate ki flow or intrinsic energy of the life-force of the body. The spirit understanding energy and harmony circulation of the ki revitalizes the internal organs in the biological system, which is, called the Chi flow. Additional practicing of techniques will develop flexibility and strengthen the muscles, the joints, and the mind, body, and soul. Atemi-Jujitsu Te also has an active role in meditation, than all other martial arts systems.

Some history:

Atemi, the art of striking 365 attack points was developed over 6000 years ago in the Himalayan Mountains in China. Later on it was passed down from the monks to the Japanese, years after its creation. It was not considered a style, nor a system, some referred to it as Dim-mak, which deals with the 360 circular movements and respiratory breathing techniques, chikung breathing, as well as the important mechanism of the hand and fist training; Understanding the whole concept of anatomy structure of acupuncture and the transistic energy of the Chi-flow and power. By studying in depth different charts of human anatomy many experts of the martial arts or the masters, became the ultimate fighting machine, a perfect weapon. There were many masters that trained and have long passed away. Atemi, known as the death touch, upon a strike, the point of placement of the blow from an angle. The advantages of the power of the Atemi strike were greater than the average martial arts training, as well as tweet a hand, known as the twist wrist or locking or pinning devices mixed with the Atemi strike would cause instant death, or penalization, or decapitation of the opponent. As in Dim-Mak, it was for family members, it was forbidden to teach this art to the westerners. Atemi was a highly secretive striking method that even to this day is a mystery to most martial arts/karate teachers. The untold secret has not been revealed of as of yet.

A lot of martial arts instructors claim to know striking methods, as in karate there are 45 attack points waza movements, like kata carry out as in kicking, punching to the temple, to the groins, to the mid-section and so forth.

The ancient Art of Atemi was passed down to Grandmaster Irving Soto, 10th Degree Black Belt, who was one of only ten masters, and the only Non-Japanese, selected to learn the Ancient Art of Atemi aiki jujitsu from Grandmaster koshimitsu Yamamoto . irving Soto became so proficient in Atemi – Aiki-jujitsu that he became the first American to receive a Tenth Degree Black Belt (with the color Red), known as the cover Red Belt in the United States of America. In recognition of his mastery,koshimitsu Yamamoto gave him his ancient Samurai Sword and bestowed him with the title "Warlord".

In giving Hanshi Irving Soto the ultimate warrior and human weapon; in accepting the Warlord; Hanshi Irving Soto also promised his master that he would make sure the art of Atemi lived on after his master's death. In order to fulfill his promise,

Prof Irving Soto has broken from tradition and brought the Orient's greatest secret to the United States of America. At the present time, Grandmaster Soto is the last man alive to posses the complete knowledge of Atemi jujitsu Grandmaster Soto developed the Art of Atemi Jujitsu Te. The power of Atemi I, the art of striking Grandmaster Soto defines Atemi as follows:

Definition of:Atemi
ATEMI- "Body Blows" (from Ateru, to strike, and Mi, body). Atemi are blows aimed at the vital or weak points of an opponent's body in order to paralyze, by means of intense pain. Such blows can produce loss of consciousness, severe trauma and even death, according to which point is struck. A good, all-around knowledge of these vital points is necessary to avoid accidents during training. Knowledge of the location of such points and the way of striking them is generally reserved for Budoka of black belt standard or higher, in the empty-hand martial arts. The smaller the striking surface used in Atemi, the greater the power of penetration and thus the greater effectiveness of the blow. Atemi technique, or Atemi-waza, is very ancient and almost entirely based on knowledge of the anatomy and the points and meridians used in acupuncture.

Atemi waza aiki jujitsu
A group of fundamental movements (Kata) carried out either in Suwari-waza (kneeling down, face to face) - Hakko-dori, Kao-ate, Hiza-gatame or standing - Hakko Zeme Dori, Tachi Hiza-gatame, Mae Kata-te Hakko-dori - and their variations. All these movements focus on seizing the wrists, Te-hodoki.

Atemi strikes are aimed at key areas of the body: nerve endings, arteries running close to bone, organs, sensitive and vulnerable joints like elbows and knees. These strikes can be made with virtually any part of the body, open hand, fist, fingers, elbow, toes, heel, knee, even your head - all are viable tools for attacking an aggressor's key atemi points.



A brief history

Atemi was developed in Asia thousands of years ago. In China it became known as dim mak, (death touch) while the Japanese, called it Atemi; a system of strikes and painful joint holds aimed at one of the central nervous system's 365 "pressure points." Paradoxically many of these points are also used in the healing art of acupuncture, which began its development at about the same time.

For many years it remained exclusively in China but as Chinese and Japanese cultures intermingled, the art migrated to Japan. The early masters spent many hours researching human anatomy in their quest for atemi perfection. They toiled over anatomical charts and experimented on prisoners of war and criminals. They immersed themselves totally in this learning, committing to memory their secret knowledge, refining it as they progressed and keeping the secrets of Atemi within the confines of their immediate families or clans.

During the 15th century, the samurai warriors began to assimilate Atemi strikes into their systems of battlefield unarmed combat - the martial arts. Atemi strikes gave them several advantages: Atemi strikes require no flamboyant stances, no flashy movement, they are direct and decisive. The samurai could employ a fatal blow quickly to end a life threatening confrontation or a use a quick disabling strike that would render the opponent helpless but alive for interrogation. - minimum power, little effort and maximum effect.

Various modern jujitsu, karate and ninjitsu systems employ atemi strikes however, very few people have a complete understanding of the original art. The true masters were very selective about the students with whom they shared this knowledge.Today's Atemi masters number in tens rather than hundreds. It's said that in their prime, the old masters could administer an atemi strike without touching the body, a channelling of focused chi at one of the victim's vulnerable pressure points was enough. In some instances once struck, the victim felt nothing and then fell down dead several days later. Such is the stuff of legend...or is it?

There are a limited number of pressure point Atemi specialists who claim to possess this skill, and many others who have witnessed their 'untouched' knockouts. It may be truth, myth or an assault on our imaginations. One thing is certain though, in the hands of a skilful practitioner, Atemi strikes can paralyse, maim or kill. Look at the diagram below to download the list and read it to learn more about the strike points By the way if you play around with these dont blame me if you get There are lots more points on the body meridians both front and back but these are the main

 

 


 

THE POWER OF ATEMI BY KIM YUSHIDO FROM JAPAN SOKE GRANDMASTERS IRVING SOTO

Atemi strikes can paralyzed, maim or kill.

 

Ancient Tradition

By tradition, practitioners were not allowed to teach atem,i only a highly skilled master within the family could teach the art of atemi. The bushido code required that a warrior must learn enlightenment and the five principles of earth, water, fire, wind, and void and that a warrior also acquire the five skills of accuracy, timing, ki or chi (internal energy), mind control, and instinct in order to become a proficient warrior.


As Atemi continued to develop through the centuries, the Chinese divided the art into 81 points; each point was based on one of the five elements or principles. Atemi continued to be tested for thousands of years in remote regions of China. As the Chinese and Japanese cultures continued to evolve and intermingle, the art of atemi was passed to Japan. Soon the mystical science of mind was added to atemi and its power went to a new level. Stories began to circulate around Asia about wise masters who could kill a person without touching him; this was atemi at its highest level.

Other Systems

Atemi became extremely popular during the 15th century. At the same time, ninjutsu began to flourish and grew throughout Japan for the next four centuries. In the 16th century wing chun was developed by a Buddhist nun. Both wing chun and ninjutsu incorporated atemi into their systems, While other systems attempted to include elements of atemi to increase and augment their techniques' potency in judo,

for example there are three major division. The third and final division is known as atemi-waza, ate waza, or simply atemi. Jigoro Kano made atemi-waza, or vital point striking techniques, an important part of judo after learning them from gichin funakoshi; atem-waza is so deadly that it is not allowed in judo competition, and is taught only to high-ranking belts. Other examples of systems that use atemi are Tatsu Tanaka,s modernized from of jujitsu calledgoshin-jutsu part of the modernization included an emphasis on atemi-waza.Yet another form of jujitsu known as Hakko -ryu atemi strikes and touches based on the principles of koho shiatsu kenpo, too, emphasizes various methods of striking the anatomicalvital points; However, very few people gained a complete understanding of atemi, the true atemi master went underground, becoming even more stringent and selective about the students with whom they shared their knowledge.

By the 1940s, the complete art of atemi was known only by one master, Grandmaster Koshimitsu Yamamoto, who had been taught by Soke Sokaku
Takeda. Grandmaster koshimitu yamoamoto selected ten ninth-degree black belt out of 200 student to whom he would teach the atemi art. Only one of those ten students was non- Japanese, an American named grandmaster Irving Soto who had been adopted and raised from infancy by Chinese in New York’s Chinatown. This gave him an insight into asian culture and intensive martial arts studies was possessed by very few non-Asians. With time Grandmaster soto became koshimitsu Yamamoto best student.
He became so proficient at the art of atemi waza

the

was given the title warlord by Grandmaster koshimitsu Yamamoto
gave Grandmaster Irving Soto his ancient samurai swords and his tenth degree black belt/cover red belt. When Yamamoto died, he left Grandmaster Irving Soto as head of the international bushido federation, the first non-Japanese,To head the organiztion.

Before his death, Grandmaster Koshimitsu Yamamoto made one final request to his best student that he would make sure the art of Atemi lived on into the twenty-first and beyond. With the blessings of his master, Grandmaster Irving Soto opened the first dojo in New York to make this wish a reality. Soto named his system Atemi aiki juitsu which stands for the life force, also known as chi or ki flow, that everyone possesses, ki flow is not only vital to physical health and generating power, it also permeates and enhances all facets of life, especially spirituality. The "do" stands for the way that an individual chooses to walk in life following in the footsteps of the masters such as Jigro Kano, Morihei Ueshiba, and Gogan yamamgucchi, Grandmaster Soto broke from tradition and brought the most secret and powerful art from Asia to the west. Grandmaster Soto, trained in Japan for 18 0f his 52 years in the martial arts, which emphasizes the principles of honor, respect, and discipline, and because the atemi art Soto constantly reminds his students that power and humility are interlocking forces that balances each other.
