Taiho Justsu – Beginner to Black Belt. All martial arts have but one aim, and that is to make the defender safe, by either forcible removal of the attacker or damage of the attacker to allow the defender to remove him or herself from the scene with safety. Taiho Jutsu is fundamentally different from all other martial arts in that the defender must achieve the aim of safety and also retain the attacker in his possession so as to affect an arrest. Having completed a defence, the attacker must be held in such a way that he can be restrained, from further attack, or from escape, with the least amount of physical injury to either attacker or defender. The book describes the grading syllabus from beginner to Black belt. The requirement for competition is also included.
