Instructor Dan Gabus is an 9th degree black belt in Aikijujutsu with over 55 years experience in
the martial arts, with over 40 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 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.
