The 6 Principles of Tuite Training Manual, & Our Technique Reference Book

 Seeing as how I've received numerous inquiries, I thought I'd post some of the pictures (blurred, though I have to admit Not intentionally, LOL) from our Student copy of our Tuite reference book. These pictures are some of the same one's that are (also) in our "Tuite Principles Book" (Located further down the page). 
 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). 

Now Available,
 The 6 Principles of Tuite Book

  This book is intended to provide the new student of Tuite Jutsu with the basic principles utilized in performing these joint manipulation techniques. It is intended to introduce the student to the beginning Tuite techniques as taught to the authors by Taika Seiyu Oyata. The included techniques are the initially taught applications that are learned by our students.

  The included instruction is the methodology that we have utilized over the past 20 years for our students. These will provide the student with the basic principles for (Tuite) technique application and for verification of newly developed techniques.

  Once the student has familiarized themselves with the principles, they can begin relating them with the included applications. Each technique is thoroughly explained with each step exampled with step by step pictures.

  This book is offered in both Soft and Hard cover, and we also have our “Pocket Reference” book available. This (smaller) book provides a (pictured) reference for each of the applications that are explained (fully) in the Big book. This is commonly used as a class-time reference for technique (practice) choice.




  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.

  Each of the 6 Principles relates to a different aspect of a technique”s application. Though some are specific in their use, the majority are (often) variable in their application. Despite that variance, each play an important part in a techniques success (or failure). As the student applies a technique, they will learn to recognize the effect/response from the use of each of these principles.

  These principles take into account the bodies (Natural) R.O.M., and the factors that effect those limits. Reflexive responses/reactions are also considered in the principles use during a techniques application. Accurate Observation of the uke's reactions are an important factor during the application of any technique. Learning to evaluate those reactions should be an active part of every students study.

  This books emphasis is upon learning the Six Principles of technique application, and recognizing the uke's responses as well as the students method of applying the instructed techniques(demonstrated within the text). The book draws upon techniques that were retrieved from various kata that are presently taught in Oyata's Life Protection method (and those motions are also shared among various kata that are taught in “other” systems as well).
