*A Training Day is equivalent to a two (2) hour training session.
All Yudansha grades over and above YonDan and Menkyo Licenses are issued strictly by Hombu, and requires direct training
under the Kaiso of Sentou-ryu Aiki-jujutsu. No grades or ranks over YonDan issued by any affiliate Dojo

"Movement within the Kata of Sentou-ryu hold the secrets to the system. As a combative system, Sentou-ryu is meant to overcome your opponent utilizing their energy against them. Once committed to launch an attack, the opponent sacrifices themselves to the practitioner's will. Therefore, Sentou-ryu stresses proper Tai Sabaki, Maiai, Irimi and Kazushi, along with effective Atemi and Kensetsu waza."

D. Chase, Kaiso
