Bushin Ryu Aiki Bujutsu Arizona at the Budo Shingikan Honbu Dojo. The martial art we study is Bushin Ryu Aiki Bujutsu, which is a complete martial system that focuses on a balance between the more physical martial arts and the aiki martial arts. These are traditional martial arts that do not rely upon physical strength for their effectiveness. The principles of aiki involve blending with an opponents energy and using that force to one’s best advantage. We believe that by neutralizing any advantage created by physical power, martial arts based on aiki principles are ultimately more effective self-defense systems.
