Seven disciplines are taught inside the Takeda Ryu Nakamura Ha Sobudo. These disciplines are Aikido, Jukenpo, Iaido, Jodo, Shugijutsu, Tachikendo and Shurikenjutsu.
Techniques are divided in kihon waza (basic techniques), henka waza (variations) and koryu waza (old techniques). The school uses competitions (shiai) and randori as a way of teaching, it
is the only way to be close to the true fighting situation. In aikido, the shiai and the randori exist in two different forms. The first one is called sogo and the second tori waza.
