And, if you are like most students, you can't wait until you learn the advanced techniques. Surprise! You already have! Hanshi Tony Annesi guides you through a course in recognizing higher-level skills hidden in basics from both karate-do and aiki-ju-jutsu. Kihon (basics) are okuden (advanced teachings) when you understand the intricacies of elevated elementals.
