The prominent feature of Hakkoryu Jujutsu is to totally abandon physical power, to relax completely, and then apply techniques to opponents in order to defend oneself. Most other martial arts commonly aim to defeat or destroy an opponent, but Hakkoryu’s exponents, while completely relaxed, uses the attacker’s force and strikes a vital point on Keiraku to instantly freeze, stop, pin down, and/or control the movement of the opponent. As most everyone knows, in a Judo match, a physically smaller person experiences great difficulty in winning a match if he encounters an opponent of much larger size. Hakkoryu has no problem with such physical differences. In Hakkoryu, gentle, swift, and efficient maneuvers reign supreme over hardness, strength and body size.
The primary mission of the Hakkoryu Soke, Hakkoryu So Hombu Dojo, and his/its various councils and associations is the orderly and controlled dissemination of the knowledge and techniques of Hakkoryu Jujutsu and Hakkoryu Koho Shiatsu so as to protect and keep pure their original teachings of these traditions.
In order to accomplish this mission, the following organization has been established outside Japan:
Director of International Affairs for Honbu Dojo
Overseas Secretary (秘書)
