Welcome to the Shu Ha Ri Do website. Although Shuhari is a Japanese word, Shu Ha Ri Do is influenced by Kung Fu, Muay Thai, Wrestling, Jeet Kune Do and other systems. My title is Sifu however, I could have just as easily been called Shihan. The word Shu Ha Ri describes the stages of learning all the way to mastery. It is sometimes referred to in other disciplines, as Go. Shuhari roughly translates to "to imitate, to create, to master". This site is all about martial arts techniques, inspiring quotes, safety, awareness, and uncommon knowledge regarding self mastery under the Kingdom of Heaven. Interested in training in Shu Ha Ri Do martial arts visit 17842 S Dixie Hwy 33157 Monday and Wednesday 4:30 to 7:00 pm or contact Sifu G. at email@example.com.
Hello, everyone, I share with you today another bit of wisdom as usual in parable, riddle like form. TRANSPARENT, BUT APPARENT. TRAINED EYES SEE…
In life there can be many traps set by very clever predators.
All of us would definitely call a spider an apex predator. What or who have you seen in this life can be compared to spiders.
Think of the very intricate webs they weave. Think of how clear and almost noticeable the webs are. How many of us to our terror have accidentally run into a spider web? Think of the panicked way we flail around trying to get untangled. Now think of an insect who runs into the same web and ask yourself if the insect had seen the web would he still have flown into it? Now as you know here at the “Warrior Wisdom Blog” I use a lot of metaphors. I leave you with a question on this topic. What are the webs in your life that you need to avoid…
And now a bit of good news! I have recently started a store based on my concepts I teach. Below you will find a shirt illustrated the article you just read. If you like my blog and have been inspired by what I share. Please Rep The “DO” by purchasing one of the awesome tee shirts on the site. The store is just beginning and there will be much more merchandise added in the weeks to come. Join me in promoting Warrior Wisdom by wearing merchandise with a wise message. The name of the store is The “DO” collection, DO means way in this case the “Way” of Shu Ha Ri Do Warrior Wisdom. You do not have to be a martial artist to be wise, but it is my goal that every Shu Ha Ri Do martial artist will indeed be wise. Godspeed in your quest.
Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well, I present to you today another song with a righteous message. This is a short song that was the theme of the 1980’s movie “The Last Dragon” a very entertaining and inspiring movie. Whenever I hear this song it still give me the same chills I had as a teenager in love with the martial arts. For me the song is simple and true. I will illustrate and summarize the lyrics below, to give you more insight into why this song resonates so much with me.
Now all the masters know
That you need the glow
You need the glow, the glow to grow
This verse gives me chills now because it is a truth that I have experienced as I have mastered my own martial arts system Shu Ha Ri Do. All of the knowledge that I consumed throughout the late 80’s and through the 90’s produced bright light inside of me. This light began to glow on the outside for many to see and they started gathering one by one and two by two to learn from me. I was nothing I planned it just happened because of the tons of seminars and books I poured through, as I’ve mentioned before I even copied the dictionary during this time. The most powerful motivation I had during this time was my relationship with God. The knowledge about his purpose to heal and restore mankind filled my heart and soul and spurred me on to become who I am today. Little did I know I would become a version of what this song is about. For me the glow is the righteous knowledge from God that filled my heart and made his passion for my passion. I train to master myself and I teach others to do the same.
If you love to live, you live to love
Hah, you got to move to the upper level
Cause when you got the glow
There ain’t no stopping
What you want to do
Indeed you have to move to the upper level, indeed when you have the glow there is no stopping you.
To reach that upper level
Your mind, body and soul must be one
It’s a sacrifice
It takes hard work
It’s a way of life
Your mind body and soul must be one this is the essence and truth behind the meaning of the Shu Ha Ri Do Self Mastery symbol shown below.The fire represents the soul/spirit your feelings, passions, ambitions, motivations, what drives you. The water represents your body, and the light represents the light and knowledge of the mind. I did not plan this it simply unfolded in my hands. What happened to me was, due to my voracious consumption of righteous knowledge on mastering self, my sacrifice of embracing 6 years of celibacy before marriage and my dedication to training. I simply “gave birth” in other words to everything that is Shu Ha Ri Do, my books, and more. Books by Sifu
When you got the glow
You feel the one (You feel the one)
When you got the glow
Your body’s gold (Your body’s gold)
So don’t let go
Of the power of elevation (Power)
(Talk about that glow)
“The Power of Elevation” there is so much meaning for me in that statement. Suffice it to say that the more you elevate the more powerful you become to have influence on people. Your influence can elevate others. Is your influence righteous? This power and mindset in the wrong hands can have the opposite effect. I hope this post has inspired you and given you the insight you need to push forward in your pursuit of Self Mastery under Heaven, Godspeed
Hello everyone, in my system Shu Ha Ri Do I teach all about weapons of opportunity. Well I came across something that impressed me. In the video below you will see a chop stick weaponized in very impressive way. Feel free to share your thoughts.
Greetings everyone, it is my prayer that my post finds everyone motivated and inspired on the path to self mastery, the life long journey. Today I bring you a thought which I will illustrate and summarize. The thought is simply, “Respond wisely, even when you are treated unwisely”. Let me tell you from experience that this will be one of the continuous challenges of your life. The wiser you become, the better you will treat people, however, the wiser you become it will seem like some people treat you worse. It is a conundrum I have noticed. You will find that you will have to grow in your humility, and patience as you will find yourself pardoning others often. Don’t be discouraged, this is the path of self mastery, this is the true “Warriors Path”. And now for the 3 areas…
WITH STRANGERS OR PEOPLE WHOM YOU HAVE NO CONTINUOUS ASSOCIATION
These are people whom you see randomly like a mail lady, cashier, neighbor, business owners, etc. Please understand that these people are not in your circle. They should be no where near your heart so their unwise treatment should not matter as much. If they annoy you, you can go to another restaurant or store. You also do not have to respond, silence is a great source of strength. You have no obligation to maintain a dialogue with them. So you can “unplug” their negative unwise energy with silence.
Now here is where we take a step closer to the heart. Now my advice is to protect your heart by maintaining a certain level of separation when it comes to work. How you can you protect your heart simply by being professional and objective. Am I saying that you should show no feelings? Absolutely not. However, as we all know some co-workers can treat you very unwisely. So you must maintain a high level of professionalism. At work you will many times find yourself in awkward positions where you feel forced to interact with a co-worker who treats you unwisely. At those times remain focused on the objectives and let the objectives be your common ground just throw your energy into getting the job done and dominating your work. Again remember that “silence is a great source of strength” you can also “unplug” the negative unwise energy of a co-worker with being silent whenever they attempt to treat you unwisely. If the treatment continues and they leave you know choice, you can go to the next level and get management involved. However, utilize silence repetitiously before you do and watch your wisdom will shine like the sun.
Here is where we get to the heart of the matter. It is very difficult indeed to simply ignore or remain silent when family treats you unwisely. I can tell from experience that because of your love for them you will be forced to pardon family members. Some of them will absolutely break your heart with how they treat you. It is something that if you continue to build yourself up and maintain a strong relationship with God, you will be prepared to do. Many times due to our love for family members they are actually able to grow and become better people. However, there is a limit to how much unwise treatment we should take from family. When the unwise treatment endangers you, other family, or household safety, is where the line should be drawn.
Well everyone, I just wanted to illustrate and summarize a thought that was on my mind. Hopefully you found this article useful, Godspeed in your quest for self mastery.

Greetings everyone, good morning, good evening, and goodnight wherever you are. I present to you another round of Wisdom For Warriors in an excerpt from James Allen’s “Path To Prosperity”. As I have mentioned before this author was incredibly on point in his writings. As you should know by now if I endorse an author or anything on the “Warrior Wisdom Blog” it will definitely be beneficial. James Allen is a lesser publicized author that I fully endorse, his work is incredibly profound and insightful, and is a must read for all truth seekers. With that being said enjoy the excerpt.
Whether one be fearful or fearless, foolish or wise, troubled or serene, within that soul lies the cause of its own state or states, and never without.
And now I seem to hear a chorus of voices exclaim, “But do you really mean to say that outward circumstances do not affect our minds?”
I do not say that, but I say this, and know it to be an infallible truth, that circumstances can only affect you in so far as you allow them to do so.
You are swayed by circumstances because you have not a right understanding of the nature, use, and power of thought. You believe (and upon this little word belief hang all our sorrows and joys) that outward things have the power to make or mar your life. By so doing you submit to those outward things, confess that you are their slave, and they your unconditional master.
By so doing, you invest them with a power which they do not, of themselves, possess, and you succumb, in reality, not to the mere circumstances, but to the gloom or gladness, the fear or hope, the strength or weakness, which your thought-sphere has thrown around them.
In other words “your mind makes it real! For example as soon as you start to tell yourself anything negative like, disease, disaster, or hardship, take note of what happens to your stomach. Take note of how your hands may begin to sweat. You can make your blood pressure rise off the charts simply by thinking! Please understand this, you are not simply a victim of circumstance. At least you do not have to be, whatever happens in one moment, you have the next moment to counteract it and make things better. I also write about these things in my book “Harness the Power Within and Without. You have only to decide and learn to think differently, it is all up to you.
