Ok, I dont know anything about daito ryu. but i do know that the sword used while on a horse was called the daito. Thats why i came in here, the forum says its about daito ryu, itto ryu and kenjutsu arts doesnt it?

Daito ryu is a style of jujutsu, or aiki-jujutsu if you perfer.

One of the pre-cursor styles of Aikido.

In this case, "daito" does not refer to a sword--one of those Japanese words that has more than one meaning/useage.

(and BTW a number of weapons/swords were used from horseback--a daito--could just as easily be a sword used on the ground)

The guy that "founded" Daito Ryu was a highly skilled and accomplished fighter--with and without weapons, so some of the Daito schools have retained the weapons training.

If you have sword questions, I would suggest the sword forum.

"Daito"-ryu in this case means "Great Eastern". I believe Ona-ha itto-ryu kenjutsu is a complementary kobujitsu of various styles of aiki-jitsu, most notably hakko-ryu.
