Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu Yamabushi Kai

Yamabushi Jujutsu/Aikijujutsu Ryu, Inc. was established in 1982 by Miguel Ibarra, Hanshi. It is a blending of MiYama Ryu Jujutsu and Daito Ryu Aikijujutsu techniques for a realistic approach to street self defense.

Mr. Ibarra trained directly under Shinan Antonio Pereira and obtained a Mokuroku [Yondan] from him in Mi Yama Ryu Jujutsu and a Menkyo License [Rokudan] in San Yamabushi Jujutsu [offshoot of MiYama Ryu] from Shinan Hector Negron. Additionally, Ibarra trained in Daito Ryu Aikijujutsu Kodo Kai receiving a Nidan and a handwritten teaching certificate. He continued his aikijujutsu training in Daito Ryu Aikijujutsu Bokuyokan, receiving a Sandan under Soshi Shihan Katsumi Yonezawa. He has also trained under many other jujutsu and aikijujutsu pioneers over the last 42 years.

Ibarra continues to support all of the MiYama Ryu organizations as well as all of the various Daito Ryu organizations currently teaching and spreading these 2 arts.

The Yamabushi Kai’s main focus is realistic street oriented self defense with a strong background in traditional techniques and concepts. We do not, however, participate in the new sport of Internet Warriorship and therefore refuse to belittle or denigrate any instructor, black belt or other practitioner of the arts.

Hanshi Ibarra is assisted by his son Shihan René Ibarra who has been training for 22 years and holds the ranks of Kaiden in Yamabushi Jujutsu Ryu and a Shodan in Daito Ryu Aikijujutsu Bokuyokan.
