In Japanese in this context, Koji 固持 means 'Persistence' or Strong-will and Do 道 literally means 'Way' / Method. Therefore, Kojido means: ‘The Way of Persistence’.
'Kojido' is predominantly a follower of "Koryu" with some minor influences from "Gendai Budo" (modern martial ways).
Koryu literally translates as "old school" or "traditional school". Koryu is also a general term for Japanese schools of martial arts that predate the Meiji Restoration in 1868. The term is contrasted with Gendai Budo "modern martial way" (or Shinbudo "new martial way"), which refer to schools developed after the Meiji Restoration.
The system of Koryu is considered in following priority order:
1) Combat / Skill / Science;
Based on the Koryu principles, Kojido Sogo Bujutsu training consists of:
- Technical / strategically training;
- Mental training
- Physical conditioning;
- Academic / Scientific Education & Research.

2 - Kojido Kobujutsu Aiki-Jujutsu ( 固持道古武術合気柔術 )
