The reference book (shown below) was printed as a reference guide for our student's use (to pick which techniques to work on). This text only contains 72 of the initial tuite techniques (with no explanations). And, (BTW) Taika's techniques were never officially "named", hence we have named them ourselves (for our reference manual). Obviously these techniques would be recognized by different names amongst the various schools teaching Oyata's methodology.
(FYI, the one of us in "White" is my associate, and represents the tori. The one in "Black" is myself representing the uke. We thought it ridiculous to have the Larger person be the person performing the technique, at least for an example text LOL).
The 6 Principles of Tuite Book
This text is only a "reference" book, there are no application instructions contained within it.
Our "6 Principles" book, was assembled for our student's use/study. We have made it available in both Hard and Soft cover.
This text contains full instructional information regarding our teaching method for the instruction of the Tuite techniques and methodology as taught to us by Taika Seiyu Oyata. These principles can be applied to any manner of limb manipulation and can provide a method of technique validation to any newly developed applications (by an individual practitioner) as well. We've found these principles to be useful to both new and experienced students in their application of technique, and in the instruction of Tuite to students who have either limited or no prior experience with Oyata's methods of Tuite application.
Any interested party can purchase either the Hard or Soft cover of the detailed guide, or the soft cover " Pocket Reference" (the smaller book). The Pocket Reference contains no instructional information, and is only a technique reference manual (shown at the top of the page). The larger text contains complete instructional details for each of the individual principles, and for each of the included applications. Though not covering every variation of each, the included techniques are shown with their basic instructional details.
All 3 Books are located (and available for purchase) at:
The 6 Principles of Tuite, amount to being six “rules” for the application of Tuite Jutsu (types of) techniques. These are listed as being “principles”, as they each have varying degrees of use in their application. Though every technique will use all 6, the amount of that use will vary per the individual technique and/or situation. None of the six are “complicated”, nor do they involve any need for “specialized” training in their use. The most relevant component to their successful implementation, is the students recognition of them (individually).
Though clearly not (necessarily) a requirement for performing Oyata's method of Tuite, the 6 principles were developed to assist both students and instructors in the learning/study of Oyata's methodology. Taika insisted that Tuite be practiced, and studied slowly. By doing so we are (more easily) able to analyze the motion(s) and evaluate the resulting responses. This can become a confusing jumble of counter productive information, if one does not (already) possess a set of “standards” from which to work from.
Each of the 6 principles provides a reference base that one can establish a standard from to use (when measuring responses/reactions to/from) with the instructed techniques. They also provide a “reaction” reference for the student in regards to technique application between (different) individual aggressor's (uke). Many of these references are (either) ignored, or never noticed (realized) by the average practitioner.
More importantly, the use of the 6 Principles will instill the trait of increased attention to an uke's responses during technique application. Each use of a Tuite technique is unique in it's application. For that reason, Every Tuite technique is (initially) explained to the student in a “general” manor/use. Once that method is understood (by the student), the instructor will expand the techniques application to include numerous variables.
