Developed by Paul Arel in 1970."Kokondo" translates as "the way of the past and the present"; this is embraced by the art in that it emphasizes modern application of ancient principles. "Jukido" means "the way of gentle flowing power"; its meaning is similar to that of aikido, although technically it is considerably different. The techniques of Kokondo Karate are drawn from several styles of Asian martial arts, but principally Kyokushin Karate and Sankata Karate-jitsu. Jukido Jujitsu is also based on many styles, but principally Sanzyu-ryu Jujutsu. The term "Kokondo" is used to refer to the two arts jointly.
Kokondo is a closed system: students are expected to not train in any other martial arts. The focus of the two arts is on effective, realistic self-defense. Kokondo-ka (Kokondo practitioners) are discouraged from engaging in martial arts tournaments; it is Arel's stance that training for tournaments is disruptive to self-defense training. The seven codes of Bushido (benevolence, courage, honor, justice, loyalty, politeness, and veracity) are considered particularly important ideals for Kokondo-ka, in their karate & jujitsu as well as in their behaviour while training, and also their behavior generally.

Kokondo dojo are usually run by volunteer sensei, though there are exceptions. The IKA rejects the practice of student contracts, and attempts to retain students through excellence of instruction. Kokondo welcomes women, and has equal expectations of both female and male kokondo-ka.
