Japan’s Ryukyu archipelago was the birthplace of two methods of self-defense now practiced worldwide: Okinawan Karate and Ryukyu Kobujutsu, known as Okinawan Kobudo. Kobudo is the study of weapons adapted from the tools of farming and fishing. Okinawan Kobudo reveals, for the first time through print and photographs, the rich history and techniques of this most prestigious martial art known worldwide as Matayoshi. Andrea Guarelli traces the history of Matayoshi Kobudo, explores the background of each weapon, and demonstrates the form and technique of practice through rare photos, many of which the author took while a student of Shinpo Matayoshi Sensei (1921–1997). Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Sports Publishing imprint, is proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in sports—books about baseball, pro football, college football, pro and college basketball, hockey, or soccer, we have a book about your sport or your team.

This work clearly defines and catalogues the fifty historical hand-held weapons that were used in Okinawa Prefecture and the Ryukyu Islands from the dawn of its history. It show the stages of development and introduction of these weapons to the islands and how they affected the culture through the ages. The 'standard five' popular weapons of the modern era (bo, sai, tonfa, nunchaku & kama) are described in detail with many scale drawings, but surprisingly, it clearly shows the influence of bladed weapons, such as the curved sword. Firearms also made a huge contribution to Ryukyuan weapon development, so these are also introduced in their historical context. Most surprising is the contextual detail of the historic eras, such as the affects of the Satsuma Invasion of the Ryukyu Islands in 1609 & the dissolution of the monarchy in 1879. Contrary to popular myth, between these years Okinawans did not adopt farmers tools for self protection, for quite a different history is revealed herein.

With extensive, step-by-step photographs and instructions, this jiu-jitsu guide is an effective tool for mastering this ancient martial art. The original Japanese martial art developed by the elite samurai class during Japan's feudal era, Jiu-jitsu is the forerunner of Judo and the precursor of today's ultimate fighting styles, such as mixed martial arts (MMA). For centuries, this method of unarmed self-defense proved so successful in combat that it was kept secret and taught only to a select few. Based on the author's study with instructors at the Tokyo police academy, this book presents all the traditional techniques of Jujitsu, also known as Jiu-jitsu. These techniques teach you valuable restraining methods that force your opponent to submit without abuse by using pressure points. It shows you tips for search and seizure, and the almost extinct art of Hojojutsu—how to tie people up without using any knots. Japanese Jiu-jitsu: Secret Techniques of Self-Defense addresses and demonstrates the full range of Kaisho Goshin Budo Taiho Jitsu Ryu (Tokyo police self-defense). Learn specific techniques such as:The use of handsThrowing an opponentAttacking vital points with strikes and kicksThe use of weapons (like the staff). Designed as a training manual, this fascinating Jiujitsu book also serves as a remarkable illustrated guide to the secret art of Japanese samurai self-defense.

Inhaltsangabe:Gang der Untersuchung: Die vorliegende Diplomarbeit mit dem Titel Strategisches Prozessmanagement beschäftigt sich grundlegend mit dem Konzept eines um strategische Komponenten erweiterten Prozessmanagements sowie seiner Implementierung mithilfe interner und externer Beratungseinheiten. Diese Arbeit ist in fünf Themenabschnitte unterteilt: Der erste Abschnitt erläutert Begriff, Organisation, Aufgaben und Effizienz der internen Beratung ( Inhouse Consulting ) als wesentlicher Wissens-, Umsetzungs- und Aufgabenträger des Prozessmanagements. Dies erfolgt stets in Abgrenzung zur externen (Unternehmens-)Beratung. Das Prozessmanagement wird schließlich als Aufgabenschwerpunkt interner Beratungen herausgestellt; für strategische Komponenten wird die Unterstützung einer externen Beratung gefordert. Im zweiten Abschnitt werden die begrifflichen Grundlagen des Strategischen Prozessmanagements geklärt sowie seine Notwendigkeit erläutert. Zuletzt wird eine Abgrenzung zu anderen Managementkonzepten und -methoden erarbeitet. Während sich der dritte Abschnitt mit dem marktorientierten Strategischen Prozessmanagament befasst, wird im vierten Abschnitt das ressourcenorientierte Strategische Prozessmanagement vorgestellt. In beiden Abschnitten wird das den zwei Varianten jeweils zugrunde liegende Wettbewerbsmodell, die Elemente der beiden Ansätze sowie ihr jeweiliges Verhältnis von (Organisations-)Struktur zu (Unternehmens-)Strategie erläutert. Das marktorientierte Strategische Prozessmanagement wird zudem an einem Beispiel der HypoVereinsbank verdeutlicht. Im fünften Abschnitt werden Nutzen und Erfolg des Strategischen Prozessmanagements insbesondere für die HypoVereinsbank dargestellt sowie die den Erfolg maßgeblich beeinflussenden Faktoren genannt. Zum Abschluss der Diplomarbeit wird die Forderung nach einem Strategischen Prozessmanagement für die Hypo-Vereinsbank aufgestellt.
