Simply defined, Taiho Jutsu means "control and restraining" techniques. Taiho Jutsu was created for the Japanese police force in 1947 and includes the study of "toshu" (unarmed), "keibo" (baton), "seijo" (handcuffing) and "hikitate-oyobi" (forcing a prisoner to their feet). Shudokan Taiho Jutsu system is based upon techniques from Yoshinkai Aikido (the system taught to the Tokyo Riot Police), and techniques from Goju Sabudokai, Hapkido, Japanese Jujitsu and Ninjitsu.
"When you fight, you don't fight for abstract values like The Flag, or The Nation, or Democracy. You fight for your buddy. You fight to keep him alive and he fights to keep you alive, and you go on that way, day after day, battle after battle. And when your buddy dies, something inside of you dies as well. But you go on. You fight, so that his death isn't meaningless, his sacrifice isn't for nothing."
