Instructor Dan Gabus is an 9th degree black belt in Aikijujutsu with almost 60 years experience in the martial arts, with over 45 years teaching experience. The art form is designed for both physical fitness and self-defense.  It has the kicking and punching techniques Okinawan karate, with the throwing and grappling techniques of Judo and Jujutsu, with the gentle and passive non-aggression discipline of Aikido. This unique blend of techniques is gathered together to form a system called Sannamiwa Aikijujutsu. This system teaches one to maximize the power of the human body using basic human physiology, with the gentle flowing circles of Aikido, to use an attacker’s own force against him.  Because of the nature of the system, it makes a great self-defense system for even the weakest of students.
