GYAKUTE-DO (, Reversal Hand Way) is the Jujutsu art of TANAKA CHUSHUDO our 1st SOUSHI, who passed away in 1993. Gyakute-Do is a result of Master Tanaka's study of Koryu Jujutsu, Aiki Jujutsu, Hakko-ryu and other martial arts.

The art of Gyakute-Do is a self-defense art, which features techniques of NUKI (escapes), NAGE (throwing), RENKO (arresting) and FUDO (controlling), as well as AIKI movements and DAKEN-HOU (striking and kicking).

The art of Gyakute-Do is now under our 2nd Soushi, KURABE SHISEIDO, a student of Tanaka Chushudo, who inherited and preserved the art for our generation. Mr. Kurabe also developed further the Jujutsu art of Mr. Tanaka, by adding his extensive research about Aiki, Jujutsu and other martial arts, thus updating the Gyakute-Do art into Aiki Jujutsu Gyakute-Do.

One of Mr. Kurabe's student, STEVEN VAES, used to visit Indonesia regularly for years to teach his martial arts, which includes Kukishin-ryu, Asayama Ichiden-ryu and Gyakute-Do. In December 2011, Kurabe Soushi finally gave permission to BEN HARYO sensei to spread the art of Gyakute-Do in Indonesia. Mr. Haryo is the first student in Indonesia to reach Yudansha level and to become an instructor in Gyakutedo.

Due to the unfortunate death of Steven Vaes sensei in 2012, the GBI Club is now under the guidance of Kurabe Soushi and STEVE VAN NIEUWENHUIZEN from the Netherlands.
