‘Katsujinken’ is a martial philosophy that means literally ‘the sword that gives life’.
This is representative of the Spirit and Philosophy of the martial art that is Aikido, where the techniques are designed to neutralise and re-direct an opponents aggression and energy back toward them to empower the defender and overcome the attackers efforts.
By applying principles of Katsujinken, both in theory and in practice, we can be responsible for the methods we use of our skills to gain maximum effect for minimum effort in overcoming opposition.
