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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

If you are a follower or subscriber or a follower of my blog you are aware of my book “FLEX FIST BOXING”. In the video below I present more info on the concepts I teach. As I have stated before FLEX FIST BOXING is not a replacement for conventional boxing. However, it is an excellent compliment. I am absolutely confident that these concepts will enhance your boxing and self defense skills.
Greetings everyone, in this post I am pleased to share with you one of my “Flex Fist Boxing” principles. The “Hinge Fist”. I call it Hinge Fist because of the “opening door” effect of the movement, and because the joint of the arm actually works like hinges on a door. This is one of the “principles of speed” I write about in my book “Flex Fist Boxing”. Well, now that I’ve said that enjoy the video.
Greetings everyone, the title of this article is taken from a quote by Lao Tse. Although I am not an eastern philosopher or a Buddhist, I do believe wisdom is universal, I have absorbed wisdom simply by observing nature. Which is why I do not mind quoting or writing an article based on a biblical and wise principle someone else said who may be not be a Christian as long as their footprint in the world is not evil. With that being said, I would like to remind you of multiple articles that I have written based on my personal quotes about the power of listening and silence. Please internalize these truths I present in the following articles. They are principles that I have lived by with powerful results. They are biblical truths that are simply timeless, and if applied in todays climate of foolishness will help you and your family avoid chaos. Knowing when to remain silent will in many ways make you invisible to those who promote chaos, meditate on this…
Whether liquid, solid, or vapor what can resist water? In a word, nothing! There is much to be learned simply by observing water. Much that can be applied to our lives. I have mentioned in a previous post how my ultimate inspiration JESUSsaid “I am the living water” and how another inspiration of mine Bruce Lee said “be water my friend”. Well, I would like to share a quote with you from another person who inspired me.
LAO TSE’S THOUGHTS ON WATER
Nothing in the world is as soft and yielding as water. Yet for dissolving the hard and inflexible, nothing can surpass it. The soft overcomes the hard, the gentle overcomes the rigid.
Everyone knows this is true, but few put it into practice. Therefore the Master remains serene in the midst of sorrow. Evil cannot enter his heart. Because he has given up helping, he is the people’s greatest help. True words seem paradoxical. -Lao Tse-
I would like to add a little more insight into what Lao Tse means when he says “because he has given up helping, he is the people’s greatest help”. When we think of helping someone most times we think of putting forth effort. For many, to help does not come natural it is something that they have to remind or force themselves to do, which requires effort. However, when you think in terms of water, ask yourself where is the effort in water?
There is none, water is effort-LESS. We will become the “greatest” help when our help to humanity is effortless. This requires wisdom. The wisdom to know that there are systems of oppression in place that have broken the backbone of children and families everywhere! Once you become aware of and acknowledge this fact, compassion should be automatic. Then whatever you can offer to uplift, inspire, inform, and protect children and families should be given freely and effortlessly. Just how water flows, and changes from one form to the next effortlessly, so you should live your life.
This is a big part of the meaning of the Shu Ha Ri Do symbol. This is how I live. If it inspires you I encourage you to walk the path with me. Please feel free to browse the many articles I written on this blog there is so much powerful information that I share here. It is my hope that I have inspired some. Godspeed in your quest for self mastery under the Kingdom of Heaven…
Hello everyone, I just wanted to inform and inspire you today about the God given awesomeness of the body. Something that YOU are in charge of. However, as we become adults very little is taught about how to master our bodies. In fact much of what we learn within popular culture like movies and music is how to destroy our bodies all under the guise of “having a good time”. Indeed not only are we making “bad music” with our bodies, many of us have no idea that we are the conductors of the “orchestra”. Below is an info graphic of human anatomy. Now, we are all aware of these things but do you really have any conscious connection to them? This leads me to another question. What is keeping your breathing right now? Moreover, what keeps you breathing while you are sleeping? The answer is, YOU do! Doubting the inner you? Okay take a moment say “who am I” in your mind. Now ask yourself two questions, what mouth said that? What ears heard it?
The subconscious you takes care of everything, it never sleeps. It is always attentive, around the clock quite effortlessly so. Speaking of clocks, this leads me to the number 12. Below is a schedule of what happens within your body throughout the day all governed by the “conductor” the subconscious you.
You see your body is like an orchestra of which you are the conductor telling which “instrument” to play which notes at the right “times”. As you can see there are 12 main regions or in this case”instruments” marked by time zones.
This is an info graphic about the “Triple Burner” listed on the image showing the 12 zones. I decided to go into further detail because “Triple Burner” is not something the average person can readily identify with. Take a moment to review what the Triple Burner is and does. Okay, from what you have read so far it should be clear that you are indeed the conductor of some pretty powerful “instruments”.
However, if uninformed the conscious you can be pretty oblivious to this delicate balance and can actually cause the wrong notes to be played creating “bad music” in your body. It all has to do with choices. For example, drunkenness, drug use, terrible diets, smoking, lack of sleep, embracing anxious and pessimistic thoughts, and living a life of rage and anger all wreak havoc on the harmonious “music” the subconscious you wants to produce.
The way out of having a negative influence on the “music” coming from your body is to become conscious of the subconscious you and how hard it works to preserve you. To live a lifestyle that is in harmony with that process. This is another side of what I mean when I say “Self Mastery Under The Kingdom Of Heaven”. Learn more about the schedule of your body and get in tune with those processes. Do nothing that will hinder or damage the 12 “instruments” or time zones.
Educate yourself and become a “master conductor” of the “music” coming from your body. Not just for what is happening inside of you which directly affects you, but what happens outside of you that directly affects others. Let the sounds coming from your voice and the actions coming from your body be like the most inspiring and powerful “music” anyone has ever heard!
If you are having trouble imagining what I mean and how you can make this happen. Simply browse through my articles, there are hundreds and you will see a consistent stream of powerful and inspiring “music” coming from my life. You can do it too you have God given talents and abilities, there is a mission set aside that only you can fulfill, be informed, be inspired! Godspeed in your quest!
Hello everyone, it is my hope that this post finds you being empowered and inspired by the Father in Heaven and your goals for 2019. I must tell you that nothing gets to my heart and makes my blood boil more than the idea of someone being sold as a modern day slave, sexually or otherwise.
This is a well disguised problem. For my subscribers and those who are frequent visitors you are well aware of my passion for making children and families safer. Which is why I sincerely encourage you educate to yourself and family on this topic.
There is much to learn about the tricks used by these predators. I try to give as much free information as I can however, there are many books (like my own) that give different insights and angles into this
problem like the one below. Please review the contents for yourself, below are also many other educational resources for you and your family.
In recent years, Americans have woken up to the reality that human trafficking is not just something that happens in other countries. But what most still do not understand is that neither is it something that just happens to “other people” such as runaways or the disenfranchised. The human trafficker is no respecter of faith, education, or socioeconomic status, and even kids who are raised in solid families in middle and upper class suburbs can fall victim. Likewise, labor trafficking happens in our cities, neighborhoods, and rural areas.
Through true stories and years of boots-on-the-ground experience, including at the Super Bowl, anti-trafficking expert Nita Belles teaches readers everything they need to know about human trafficking in the United States and what they can do to join the fight against it. She helps concerned parents, friends, teachers, law enforcement, government officials, and other leaders understand all forms of trafficking, identify risk factors, and take practical steps to keep their loved ones and neighbors safe from predators.
Greetings everyone, in my book “Harness the Power Within and Without” I cover Shu Ha Ri Do concepts for self mastery under the Kingdom of Heaven. Below is a powerful excerpt from that book. It is my hope that this article inspires you in your journey.
“FROM HARNESS THE POWER WITHIN AND WITHOUT”: In the Shu Ha Ri Do Symbol the body is represented by water. What are the attributes of water? Its calm, it’s cool. However based on the stimulus it can flow rhythmically or crash violently, water can be vaporous like steam or
solid like ice. Its versatile it reacts instantly, overtime it will dissolve anything its perfect. To quote the ultimate inspiration in my life Jesus said he is the living water. To quote another major inspiration in my life Bruce Lee said we should be like water, be like water indeed, when faced with any challenge
in life reacting with sound judgment should be your goal. At times the body could be spurred into action quite impulsively, like when in a verbal or physical confrontation. This is when mistakes, sometimes costly ones are made. What spurred you into action? Your mind of course, the good thing about the body’s relation to water is that it reacts to stimulus the bad thing can be just that, it reacts to a stimulus.
What type of reaction depends on the morals, ethics, values, and condition response patterns established in our minds.
We are accountable for what we do through our bodies it starts with how we think. Thinking before reacting is a big part of being wise. This is what I mean when I say “WISDOM BEFORE COMBAT”.
In “Harness the Power Within and Without” I go into more detail about the mind and it’s influence on the body. Feel free to visit the book page on amazon to read more about “Harness the Power Within and Without”.
