THE ROAD TO MASTERY — Benefits of Budo
You have heard time and again that the study of the martial arts can lead
to many levels of personal improvement. Now, you can find out how! In this ambitious treatment of the
non-physical and sometimes non-conscious teachings offered by traditional martial arts instruction, Tony
Annesi outlines the essence of self-development as it leads to the higher level of awareness and achieve-
ment known as “Mastery.” The students who approach Mastery actually travel two roads, one physical
and the other conceptual passing by five signposts on their climb up the mountain. Their physical skills
hold hidden conceptual lessons and their mental development sometimes reveals reveals spiritual lessons.
Beyond the gates of traditional budo lies the Road to Mastery. This is your guidebook. Newly revised text,
layout, and cover. Velo-bound. 190 pages

SUDDEN ATTACK DEFENSE —Traditional Ippon Kumite For the Real World
In most schools of karate, one-step sparring is taught as a gradual introduction to freestyle sparring.
In reality, freestyle has very little in common with one-step sparring and less with self-defense. The
Okinawan masters knew that one-step sparring was the way to apply what was learned in kata. Now
you can learn what the masters knew! By varying your one-step sparring practice you learn to react
to unexpected attacks. The augmentation of one-step sparring creates an ascending hierarchy to the
more realistic drills of SAD (Sudden Attack Defense) and CAD (Combat Attack Defense). This book
is about that ascension. Teachers can enhance their students capabilities by augmenting existing
one-step sparring drills. This augmentation creates an ascending hierarchy to the more realistic
drills of SAD (Sudden Attack Defense) and CAD (Combat Attack Defense). This book is about that
ascension.

TALES of the DOJO — LifeLessons from the Martial Arts
If you were lectured on the benefits of budo, it might sound like your old Civics teacher. You just
might shut your listening aparatus. But, if Sensei starts talking about his past experiences, students
start gathering around. Gather around! There are subtle lessons to be learned. And the teaching is not
only painless, it is actually enjoyable. From the well-known articles originally published in KICK
and INISIDE KARATE, Tony Annesi offers stories from his dojo files that integrate budo with daily
life and daily life with self-development. Velo-bound 186 pages. 10 Illustrations, ToD bk: ONLY

The DOJO FILES — Martial Arts Lessons from Life
In this sequel to Tales of the Dojo, Tony Annesi inverts the intent: instead of LifeLessons from the
Martial Arts, he draws Martial Arts Lessons from life ó from unexpected true life sources, many his
own experiences. The dojo files yield never before published stories that take you out of the dojo and
into real life. These are not adventures nor stories about street encournters. They are about simple,
daily ocurences we often take for granted. They hold unexpected truths that integrate budo with daily
life...and daily life with self-development. Velo-bound 266 pages. 13 Illustrations, DF bk: ONLY

                    Nine Masters of Ju-Jutsu & Aiki-ju-jutsu
NINE MASTERS 1: Wally Jay and Joe Cowles at BUSHIDO-KAI
          Prof. JAY’s favorite video of his small-circle ju-jutsu. Discover why Wally Jay is
known as a master who can perform ju-jutsu with effortless grace with techniques that approach
an aiki-type of application. Discover how Prof. Jay uses his own investigations to constantly
upgrade and modify traditional techniques so that they cease to look traditional.
Bruce Lee and ju-jutsu? Learn how Joe COWLES, a Seattle student of Bruce Lee, teaches his
WU WEI Gung-fu, a hard/soft system with added ju-jutsu techniques. Cowles’ Wu Wei was a
strong influence on one level of Takeshin Seiken Budo (see our Secrets of Seiken Budo videos).
Cowles is masterful in lightening execution of in-close techniques. (1 DVD 120 min.) J-1,
$69.00

NINE MASTERS 2: Shihan Roland Maroteaux of France
          New to aiki or coming from a karate background? The Voltaire of the Martial Arts
teaches his powerful art of AIKI-GOSHINDO developed from a study of Hakkoryu, Aikido, and
older techniques of ju-jutsu and Daito-ryu. A perfect video for karate-ka who want a introduc-
tion to the forms of aiki. Maroteaux has picture-perfect form and receives attacks with powerful
blocks before snapping on his aiki-ju-jutsu waza. Maroteaux’s aiki would be considered hard,
powerful and effective by those who prefer an explosive karate method of self-defense.
(1 DVD, 90 min.) A-2, $59.00


NINE MASTERS 3: Soke Don Angier — Inheritor of YANAGI RYU
          Soke Angier’s art is from the Yoshida clan—a family art that contains Aiki, Ken-jutsu,
and Hojo-jutsu (binding arts). Experience detailed Aiki with additional bonus of Ken-jutsu eti-
quette and waza. Soke Angier puts little or no effort in his waza; instead, all his effort has been
put into perfecting its soft but effective execution. In this video, he teaches you how to do the
same with basic techniques from Yanagi-ryu. At first, they appear to be like many aiki-styles;
however, perfecting their effortless execution make them a true challenge to experienced aiki
practitioners.(1 DVD, 120 min.) A-3, $69.00

NINE MASTERS 4: American Masters of 5 Aiki Arts
           Don ANGIER, Yanagi Ryu; Dennis PALUMBO, Hakkoryu; Tony ANNESI, Takeshin
Sogo Budo; Henri-Robert. VILAIRE, Kaze Arashi Ryu; Miguel IBARRA & Roy GOLDBERG,
Icho-yama Ryu span the range from hard to soft with instructional methods from technical imi-
tation to detailed explanation. With Master Vilaire you will use kempo-like blocks to enter into
powerful and painful waza. With Sensei Ibarra and Goldberg you use pain but over a shorter
range of motion. Sandai-kichu Palumbo offers you more conservative technique explained
with detail and humor. Shihan Annesi instructs you in his minimal motion waza with lucid
explanations. Soke Angier, the most senior and probably the most skilled Aiki practitioner in
the country, treats you to nearly invisible execution. There is no better video available today to
sample the array of aiki-ju-jutsu styles and emphases. (1 DVD, 120 min.) A-4, $69.00

                                  The Principles of Aiki
         Tired of having haphazard success with your throwing and locking? It may be because you
are imitating your teacher’s good form without understanding what makes that form work. Soke
Don ANGIER and Shihan Tony ANNESI take form a step further. Form, Annesi argues, is a way of
“tricking” a student into doing something right. It is a classical shape that illustrates an underlying
principle. If you don’t understand the principle, you’ll be locked into a form without meaning. Many
aiki students have good form but produce varying success in their throwing and locking. YOU MAY
BE ONE OF THEM. By mastering the principles underlying the forms, you can find technical success
even when using dramatically different technical forms. Style is less important than principle. The
rational West can sometimes explain more clearly what the intuitive East has discovered. Once you
know the principles on which a technique is based, you can easily make adjustments in your own
methods and see validity in others. Experience the rush of revelation you will get once mastering
TRIANGULATION, BACK PRESSURE, COMMUTIVE LOCKING and a dozen others! There has
never been another video series like The Principles of Aiki! TOTALLY UNIQUE! (120 min.) ASIAN

         With Miguel Ibarra (Daito-ryu Yamabushi-kai) & Tony Annesi (Takeshin Aiki-ju-jutsu). Do
you find that your traditional aiki art emphasizes defenses against wrist and lapel holds that are more
theoretical than practical? On the streets, a grab is followed rapidly by a punch. A body hold proceeds
from the rear so someone else can strike! This 2-part video set illustrates defenses to both strikes and
rear seizures. Included are techniques that have been tested in actual arrests (Sensei Ibarra is a New
York warrant officer) as well as techniques that illustrate theoretical but practical training in minimal
motion aiki.

from the late ‘50’s. He is a bodyguard, has taught SWAT
troops, and specializes in an aiki-ju-jitsu that is unlike
Aikido but still emphasizes softness and fluidity.

                          Comparative Aiki in Action
 10+ years research went into this material. With the current popularity of functional aikido
 and aiki-ju-jutsu, martial artists are interested in adopting some concepts of aiki into their
   own styles. Aiki-based martial artists are coming out of their stylistic cocoons and are
  interested in comparisons between teaching methods. Enter Comparative Aiki in Action.
COMPARATIVE AIKI IN ACTION (Part I)
   Different technical points of view of standard aiki techniques. Preliminaries and 15 Ikkyo
with evaluations of efficacy.
What makes one version of a technique more or less functional than another? Tony An-
nesi suggests that there are no superior styles, rather various technical methods work best
in various situations. This may not seem like a grand revelation, but to martial artists who
often want to believe that their style addresses all situations better than any other style that
admission is at least refreshing if not downright iconoclastic. (1 DVD, 90 min.) A-7, $59.00
COMPARATIVE AIKI IN ACTION (Part II)
   15 Nikyo, 9 Sankyo with evaluations of efficacy. Annesi admits that his choice of
variations are not complete, and his evaluations are not sacrosanct, but he also suggests that
without an honest attempt at an objective investigation of methods, we will never really
know what works best for us, what works best in what situation, nor will we understand the
difference between an excellent training technique and one meant for actually application.
(1 DVD, 90 min.) A-8, $59.00
COMPARATIVE AIKI IN ACTION (Part III)
    8 Yonkyo, 13 Kote Gaeshi. Evaluations of efficacy from Tony Annesi. Among the least
streetworthy techniques in yonkyo, yet it is also among the most painful. How can this be?
Among the most used techniques in self-defense is Kote Gaeshi, but it also has some of the
most elongated and indirect entries. How can it be functional if it takes so long to apply?
That depends on ones intended use and the situation of the moment. (1 DVD, 90 min.) A-9,
$59.00
COMPARATIVE AIKI IN ACTION (Part IV)
    7 Katate Osae; 4 directions and 6 irimi entry for Shiho Nage with evaluations of efficacy.
Shihan Tony Annesi not only shows the Four Direction Throw to all compass points, he also
evaluates various commonly used entries. Katate Osae (single hand press) is a technique in
itself but can also be used as an excellent transition technique to Shiho Nage.
(1 DVD, 120 min.) A-10, $59.00
COMPARATIVE AIKI IN ACTION (Part V)
   11 finishes for Shiho Nage; 4 set-ups, 11 variations of Te Hana (inverted Kote Gaeshi).
Shihan Tony Annesi illustrates methods to terminate the popular 4 Direction Throw even
when one has failed to properly off-balance the uke. The inverted version of Kote Gaeshi
makes a total of 25 variations for this much used waza. We strongly suggest purchasing A-10
and A-11 together for a complete picture of both Kote Gaeshi and Shiho Nage.
(1 DVD, 90 min.) A-11, $59.00

COMPARATIVE AIKI IN ACTION (Part VI)
   11 Osaekomi (holddowns); once you take the opponent down, you must have a depend-
able method by which to secure him. 7 Yubi Waza (finger techniques) to add painful varia-
tions to already mastered techniques. Also: a Bonus Section featuring 5 Tenbin Nage (a.k.a.
Ude Kime Nage) and 6 Irimi Nage (entering throw). (1 DVD, 90 min.) A-12, $59.00

                                                             Methods on the Edge of Aiki Plus
                                         AIKI, LARGE & SMALL
                                                  Are you doing a true Aiki? Or an Aiki by name only? Tony Annesi (Takeshin
                                         Aiki-ju-jutsu) demonstrates various methods of applying techniques identifiable as aiki,
                                         from large and fluid to medial circle to near invisible minimal motion. “Aiki,” as often used
                                         by Daito practitioners, is more than ju-jutsu with a hakama, more than hard aikido, more
                                         than even an historical link to the parent art; “Aiki” is tori’s minimal motion with uke’s
                                         unwilling maximal compliance. Commentaries and discussions by Roy Goldberg (Daito-ryu
                                         Kodo-kai). 1 DVD, 1.5 hrs. A-21, $59.00
                                         THE THREE LEVELS OF AIKI
                                                   What “level” of Aiki skill is emphasized by your system? Tony Annesi (Takeshin
                                         Aiki-ju-jutsu) demonstrates ju-jutsu, ju-jutsu with an aiki format, aiki-ju-jutsu, and the rarely
                                         seen and difficult level known as “aiki.” Most ju-jutsu students have a hard, fast and very
                                         effective form of self-defense. Then, to become more efficient, they investigate aikido or
                                         aiki-jujutsu. What they often end up with is either ju-jutsu that looks like aikido or a large,
                                         fluid, and less effective method. Both ju-jutsu and aikido can be both effective and soft, both
                                         fluid and efficient if you are aware of the levels of development outlined in this video.
                                         Commentaries and discussions by Roy Goldberg (Daito-ryu Kodo-kai). 1 DVD, 1.75 hrs.

                                         THE EDGE OF AIKI
                                                   Tony Annesi (Takeshin Aiki-ju-jutsu) demonstrates the many forms that Aiki
                                         variations can take. Annesi reveals three categories of variations: Simple Variations, Con-
                                         traction (illustrated by Minimal Motion techniques), and Expansion (illustrated by coiling
                                         or entangling technique). This fast moving, action-packed video explains how you can make
                                         one technique become hundreds with variations on the Edge of Aiki. Commentaries and
                                         discussions by Roy Goldberg (Daito-ryu Kodo-kai). 1 DVD, 2 hrs. A-37, $59.00
                                         AIKI, HARD & SOFT
                                                    You know the difference between a hard and soft art, right? Now you can under-
                                         stand the subtleties of hard and soft within your own art! Does hard and soft refer to your
                                         effort or your effects on the receiver? Does hard and soft refer to striking or not-striking
                                         or the type of energy used? Rather than offering a solution, Tony Annesi (Takeshin Aiki
                                         Ju-jutsu) suggests fascinating options to consider. More variation exists even in the Aiki arts
                                         than Hard & Soft can accurately encompass. 1 DVD, 1.5 hrs. A-42, $59.00

(These videos are NOT style-specific. Any practitioner can learn how to benefit more from
 their studies by viewing CRACKING THE KATA CODE, The Foundation of Advanced
Kata Study. See next entry for videos detailing the Takeshin method of kata performance &
                                         analysis.)

Cracking the KATA Code 1: Igata & Kata
          You know your kata but do you know how to fully understand them? From the
ground-breaking book of the same name (see book section), Shihan Tony Annesi reveals
how kata is misunderstood by most practitioners, both modern eclecticists and traditionalists.
There are two ideographs for kata. One implies a rigid mold, the other suggests a general
shape — “the mold filled with gelatin.” As a beginner you were instructed to follow the rigid
mold, but did you learn how that rigidity becomes softened by interpretation and personal
sensibilities in more senior practice? Annesi offers the details of a 3-tier approach to kata
study. Chojun Miyagi said, “Kata are not simply an exhibition of form; they are concrete
manifestations of techniques that can be transformed at any time to any form at will and in
which the essence of karate has assumed a definite form.” 1 DVD (2 hrs) K-29, $69.00

Cracking the KATA Code 2: Types & Modes of Bunkai
         Are you the unusual student who can see beyond the surface? Bunkai means
sample, example, or analysis. A method of analysis that reveals unexpected techniques and
principles is the subject of this and the next video. Sometimes bunkai reveals overt oyo
(applications) but, in other cases, these oyo are intentionally indistinct, even barely sug-
gested. Kata are like great books -- what they offer is obvious but there are multiple layers of
meaning that only a talented teacher or student can reveal.
1 DVD (2 hrs) K-30, $69.00

Cracking the KATA Code 3: 10 Tips of Analyzing Kata
          Test your interpretive talents. Shihan Annesi suggests 10 simple guidelines that
can help martial artists get the most from their kata study. He uses an unusual kata, Aragaki
Unsu, to demonstrate the ideas previously taught. Both students and Shihan Annesi contrib-
ute to the possible interpretation of the material covered, exemplifying an approach both
very traditional and simultaneously ground-breaking. 1 DVD (2 hrs) K-31, $69.00

 TAKESHIN Karate-do KANKU-DAI
         Among the longest forms in the Shotokan, Shito, Shorin and Tang Soo Do sys-
 tems, Kanku-dai is surpassed in length only by the kata Gojushiho and Goju’s Suparinpe.
 Kanku-dai is the essence of the Heian Kata put together; indeed, some say that it was the
 prime source of all the Heian kata. In this fascinating form, there are many hidden throws,
 takedowns, locks, escapes and subtle, effortlessly executed techniques. 2 DVDs (3 hrs)
 KKD, $79.00

 TAKESHIN Karate-do BASSAI-DAI
          There are actually 11 traditional versions of Bassai. Like Kanku-dai, it uses (or is
 the source of) many of the techniques shown in the Heian kata. We show four versions of
 Bassai but, more importantly, we spend the lion’s share of the video on oyo (application):
 hidden throws, takedowns and especially arm locks. 1 DVD (2.5 hrs) KBD, $79.00

 TAKESHIN Karate-do TEKKI Shodan, Nidan, Sandan
           Also called Naihanchi, this series of horse-riding kata have had many interesting

 patties? On the ground? We cover stance changes which most studies ignore as well as
 in-fighting interpretations. 1 DVD (2.5 hrs) KT123, $79.00

 FUNAKOSHI’S 9 THROWS
           There were actually more than nine.... Gichin Funakoshi and his senior student
 Shigeru Egami both advocated throwing in karate. In fact it was Funakoshi, when first
 settled in Japan, who taught Jigoro Kano, the founder of Judo, throws that Funakoshi had
 learned in Okinawan Karate. In Funakoshi’s Karate-do Kyohan, he outlined 9 throws
 that have become the basis of Takeshin Karate-do’s shodan requirements. In this unique
 video, Shihan Tony Annesi demonstrates the harder, more direct “karate” versions of the
 waza and then shows Takeshin’s modified “aiki” versions as applied in a one-step sparring
 format. A video that will be enjoyed by both Karate and Aiki students.

         Empi / Wanshu
                    Offered at the Nidan level of Takeshin Karate-do, Shotokan-style Empi
         (Flying Swallow) is compared to two versions of its antecedent, Wanshu. Sensei
         Tobey Reed performs Shuri-ryu Wanshu and Shihan Annesi shows a version of
         Itosu-kai (Shito-ryu) Wanshu. The kata are shown individually, then side- by-
         side-by-side. Shihan Annesi devotes the dominant amount of time to Empi ap-
         plications while Tobey Reed inserts similar applications from a different part of
         Wanshu. These are compared and contrasted with Itosu-kai Wanshu to make for
         an action-packed hour-and-a-half of advanced karate analysis and application.

           INNOVATIVE TRADITIONALISM!
SUDDEN ATTACK DEFENSE DVD Set
         You’ve never seen one-step sparring like this! Not fancy, not com-
plex. Just functional!
         Standard Traditional Ippon Kumite (Embu Kumite) prepares one
for a face-to-face street attack. What if the opponent does not attack face-
to-face? What if he does not use a head-high lunge punch? And, what does
one-step sparring lead to if not freestyle sparring? The Okinawan masters
knew that one-step sparring was a way to apply basics learned in kata. A
variety of sparring drills help you react to unexpected attacks. By learning
a logical, incremental set of one-step drills, you prepare for real sudden
attack. Few students or teachers realize the depth to which the one-step
exercises can go. This 3-part video series starts with traditional practices,
troubleshoots them, and gradually adds variations until unexpected but
nonetheless realistic drills emerge: Touch-Pass, SAD (Sudden Attack De-
fense), and CAD (Combat Attack Defense.) This video series allows you to
bridge the gap between the master’s teachings and self-defense in today’s
world. 3 DVDs (5.5 hours) SADvs, $139.00

INSIDE the KUMITE Gap
        Real fighting seldom happens at sparring range. Often, it is in-
close and personal. Are you ready to mix it up? Even if you spar well,
the referee stops you when you get too close. But that is where the
real fight starts. Now you can learn how to finish that in-close fight.
Learn closing skills, receiving thrusts, simultaneous block/strike,
off-balancing blocks, checking hands, trapping hands, short & small
technqiues, contouring, successive leg techniques, heave & earth
techniques, clinches, and give and take drills that integrate what you
have learned.

                        SITUATIONAL SELF-DEFENSE from Traditional Kata
                               Every karate-ka learns to defend against punches and kicks but
                        karate was originally intended as a holistic self-defense skill. That means
                        traditional training must have included self-defense against lapel grab,
                        front neck choke, rear wrist holds, rear chokes, rear body holds, hammer
                        locks, etc. Shihan Annesi reveals these defenses and more, all from the
                        traditional kata you thought you knew!

HIDDEN JOINT JOLTS from Traditional Kata: Heian 1, 2, 3.
       The blocks and punches are obvious. Sometimes the overt arm
locks stick out like a sore elbow; but what about the subtle, quick, debili-
tating jolts to knees and elbows that are so easy to ignore when investi-
gating kata bunkai? Here they are, clearly instructed and drawn from the
kata you thought you knew.

                           TRANSMUTATION
                            3 DVDs, 5 hours

TRANSMUTATION (Part I)
        Hanshi Bruce Juchnik (Sei Kosho Shorei Kai) and Shihan Tony Annesi
(Takeshin Sogo Budo) teach you how to unify the arts by showing that, with
small adjustments, a Lock is a Block is a Blow is a Throw. Bruce Juchnik is
known for his relaxed presentation of unusual concepts. Tony Annesi is known
for his organized and clear analysis of techniques. With them, youíll move from
style to style, from technical shape to technical shape to bring many martial
arts into the same family. Learn how form varies not only according to function
but also according to cultural preference. The differences in styles are not in
effectiveness but in appearance and sometimes incidental detail. When you can
transmute your favorite blow into a throw, you have soft within your hard style.
When you can transmute your favorite lock into a block, you have hard within
your soft style. (1 DVD, 90 min.) AK-13, $59.00

TRANSMUTATION (Part II)
       Hanshi Juchnik on ìalways move twiceî and ìcagingî. Shihan Annesi on
seeing advanced applications within basics. You will learn how to understand
technical methods with ìa masterís mindî by seeing beyond the surface form.
Once you study principles (see PAB videos) and know how a technique works,
you are then free to change its form while maintaining its essence. Even your
most basic techniques hold within them advanced applications. Discover how!
(1 DVD, 90 min.) AK-14, $59.00

TRANSMUTATION (Part III)
         Juchnik applies his concepts to the use of a blade. Annesi unifies the
theme and transmutes advanced techniques back to basic ones. The circle
comes around. As an experienced martial artist, you do not have to practice
every one of your 10,000 variations to stay skilled. You continue practicing ba-
sics, but perceive them with ìa masterís mindî. For you, the advanced becomes
simple because it always resided in the basic. Now you can transmute the basic
into the advanced at will. (1 DVD, 120 min.) AK-15, $69.00

                             THE ROAD TO MASTERY
                                 5 DVDs, 9 hours
THE ROAD TO MASTERY (Part I)
          Travel with Willem deTHOUARS (Kuntao Silat), Bruce JUCHNIK (KoshoRyu), and Tony
ANNESI (Takeshin Sogo Budo) as they show signposts on the technical journey toward Mastery.
Your first signpost is, of course, Basics. But basics are more than they first appear. Even for a
beginner, each art has a different concept of what basics should be. DeThouars and Juchnik discuss
basics like perception and awareness while Annesi covers basics like stance and blocking stability.
Not only must you master basics, you should also test them. Discover Shihan Annesi’s unique way
to test postural efficiency so you can improve your own. (1 DVD, 120 min.) AK-16, $69.00

THE ROAD TO MASTERY (Part II)
          Basics become Forms and Techniques. You have practiced many basics as self-defense.
More often, however, basics transmute into the more complicated combinations you know as kata
or waza. Even these contain more than meet the eye. Annesiís bunkai of Tensho kata, for example,
illustrates a point made in his earlier Transmutation videos (see above) and Cracking the Kata Code
videos (see karate videos), that any form, whether a kata or a waza can hold enormous meaning
below its surface. Learn how a simple kata can have subtle application that can be lost upon even
those who practice it regularly. (1 DVD, 90 min.) AK-17, $59.00

THE ROAD TO MASTERY (Part III)
           Form & Techniques produce Variation. For most students, improvement in the martial arts
means adding to their list of techniques or variations. The more choices of techniques you have with
which to respond to an attack, the better you are able to handle that attack. Variations are endless so
it is logical that students perceive a large repertoire of variation as the pinnacle of martial develop-
ment. This video suggests that Variation, although essential, is merely a stepping stone on your way
toward mastery. (1 DVD, 90 min.) AK-18, $59.00

THE ROAD TO MASTERY (Part IV)
         Variations lead to Principles. Once you have accumulated myriad variations, you must
have a way to organize them. Even the masterís mind cannot work if clogged by a mile-long menu
of technical choices. This is why the next signpost on the road to mastery is understanding how
variations can be summarized into a relatively small group of principles (genri). Different arts
approach Principle in different ways; but, to master an art, you must go beyond the accumulation of
concretes to the integration of concepts. New to the study of principles? Not after you experience
this signpost. (1 DVD, 120 min.) AK-19, $69.00

THE ROAD TO MASTERY (Part V)
          The fundament of freedom: Everything is Budo. When you integrate both techniques and
principles, you go beyond shape, form, or style. Not only do your trained actions become automatic,
but your everyday actions become structured with the new intent of self-defense. You now can turn
any motion into a lock, a block, a blow, or a throw. Because budo has become part of your life, your
life can serve as the shape, style and method of your budo. Beyond the gate of traditional budo lies
the Road to Mastery. At the pinnacle of mastery lies Banji-wa budo desu (Everything is budo). (1

                                    3 DVDs, 5 hours
Science of Sogo Budo 1
          Ian Cyrus (inheritor of Choson-Do), Tony Annesi (Takeshin Sogo Budo) and Brian Wilkes
(Seishi-ryu Sogo Budo) illustrate how to recognize your art for what it really is and really can be. Find out
how to integrate hard and soft, large and small, striking, and locking methods without doing a disservice
to your chosen martial art. Learn the 5 methods to “sogo-ize” your art, understand technical skills from
an historical point of view, and discover why “style” is a necessary limitation that masters go beyond.
Witness thought provoking viewpoints and beautifully conjoined techniques (from aiki, karate, Korean
arts, Japanese sword, Chinese internal arts and others) — enough to keep you, the thinking martial artist,
viewing this DVD set again and again. In Part 1, Shihan Annesi illustrates how a basic hook block can be
used as a lock, a blow, or a throw; Kwang-jang (stylistic head) Ian Cyrus continues the theme, integrating
Annesi’s movements with techniques from his own art; and Brian Wilkes relates the theme to the Japanese
sword. (1 DVD, 1.75 hrs.) AK-22, $69.00

Science of Sogo Budo 2
        Annesi continues the sword analogy; Cyrus adds striking and kicking to the theme, and Wilkes
completes his historical perspective. (1 DVD, 2 hrs.) AK-23, $69.00

Science of Sogo Budo 3
           Annesi and Cyrus both discuss the concept of “styles,” conclude the 5 principles of integration
and relate them to various stylistic techniques. (1 DVD, 2 hrs.) AK-24, $69.00

                              Sogo Budo) investigate the history of technique transmission throughout Asia. Sound a little to academic?
                              Hardly! In part I, Guru Roberto Torres explains the Chinese origins of the Indonesian arts and illustrates
                              the distinction between Pencak (Pentjak) and Silat with a fascinating series of avoidances, strikes, and
                              takedowns. Kwang-jang Ian Cyrus relates his knowledge of Pa-kua (Ba-gwa) and its connection to other
                              arts with techniques that approach at unusual angles. (1 DVD, 2 hrs.) AK-25, $69.00

                              and then shows applications that look like aiki! Guru Torres relates entries and basic Jurus (forms) of the
                              Indonesian arts to the previous material. (1 DVD, 1.75 hrs.) AK-26, $69.00

                    ous techniques, then variations of those techniques. You have developed quite a
                     repertoire. But you may not completely understand why your techniques work
                      or why they work only sometimes. You have the knowledge and you have the
                    talent; but, until now, you may not have had the principles upon which all tech-
                    niques are based. This three DVD set reveals the hidden keys to having many of
                     your unasked questions answered. Unlock a treasure chest of knowledge from
                      both hard and soft arts in this unique set of videos. These Takeshin principles
                     can be applied to all empty hand martial arts! Complemented by the 206 page
                                    book that allows quick reference to the principles.

                            GROUND DEFENSE: Avoid Grappling!
                                    This DVD is not about grappling. It is about AVOIDING GRAPPLING. Although
                            grappling is an important combat skill, it is not suited for everyone. When you defend yourself,
                            you do not spend more than a moment with one opponent unless absolutely necessary. Attack-
                            ers know they can suddenly tackle and take down almost anyone! Now you will be able to fight
                            back!
                            * Know what to do if you are kneeling, sitting, or lying down as an attacker approaches.
                            * Understand your options if he decides to rush you.
                            * Plan your escape even if he has you pinned down.
                            Although there is no guaranteed escape from every assailant in every situation, GROUND
                            DEFENSE will prepare you for self-protection from many disadvantageous positions. Down is

                                The SECRETS OF SEIKEN BUDO
            an introduction to BUSHIDO-KAI’s private, in-house martial art
        Learn how to “fill the gaps” that most karate and aiki studies leave blank.
SEIKEN BUDO (Combined Fist Martial Way) addresses striking, standing grappling,
ground grappling, and weaponry. It deals with 5 ranges from very close to very far. In
this 3-DVD set, Shihan Tony Annesi, founder of the family of integrated martial arts
known as TAKESHIN SOGO BUDO, teaches you to employ defenses to standard
lunge punches to link the sections Seiken Budo to each other. You’ll pass though X-re-
ceptions and leg-entangles inspired by Shorinji Tetsu-Kenpo and Hapkido. Then youíll
close the gap with techniques modified from Wu-wei Kung-fu. Finally, youíll draw
in the opponent moving only minimally to defend yourself. This video set is a great
benefit for both soft and hard stylists who want to expand the capabilities of their art as
they deal with several ranges. (3 DVDs, 5 hrs.) TBS-1, $129.00

                              The Skills & Drills of SEIKEN BUDO
                      DEFEND AGAINST ANY ANGLE OF ATTACK!
        Integration Drills of Takeshin Seiken Budo Your key to rapid learning and accu-
rate application. The drills include those taken from other martial arts and those created
especially for Takeshin Seiken Budo. The unique aspect of these drills is how Shihan
Annesi integrates them to teach you HOW TO DEFEND AGAINST ANY ANGLE OF
ATTACK! You can master the integration of hard and soft and in days or weeks (rather
than years) and develop the coordination to respond to an attack from any angle with
Kake-uke-ho (Hook block exercise), Dan Chi-sao (Single Sticky hands), Seung Chi-
sao (Double Sticky hands), Morote Tekubi-wa Keiko (2-hand Wrist Circle Practice),
Tui-shu (Push-hands), Cadena de Mano (Chain of Hands), Hubud Lubud (To Tie and
Untie), The “Touch-pass” Drill, and Karate Sute Geiko (Exchange Practice).
Drill integration is essential to skill integration. Integrated skills are your secret weapon
against any angle of attack. (3 DVDs, 4.25 hrs.) TBS-2, $129.00

                                  Minimal Motion SEIKEN BUDO
                         Hard Meets Soft Meets Minimal Motion
        At SEIKEN BUDO’s yondan (4th degree) level, you draw the opponent in and
move only minimally while defending with both hard and soft movements in a decep-
tively relaxed fashion. Shihan Annesi refers to the result as “Educated Garbage.” You’ll
be shocked at how quickly Minimal Motion Seiken Budo is learned and how easily it is
applied. (3 DVDs, 4.75 hrs.) TBS-3, ONLY $129

                                 Proto-JKD Meets Aiki
        At SEIKEN BUDO’s sandan (3rd degree) level, influenced by Sifu Joe Cowles
(an early student of Bruce Lee), one initiates the attack upon contact. The technqiues
are deceptive and very quick and are complemented by the minimal aiki finishes,
Shihan Annesi contributed to the integration. (3 DVDs, 4.75 hrs.) TBS-4, ONLY $129
