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, and thanks for visiting today! If you are a subscriber or frequent visitor you are well aware that I Shu Ha Ri Do is a martial arts system that I created 21 years ago. Within the system are what I call COMS or Combat Maneuvers. In the video below I present to you an expanded illustration of COM 1. Please feel free to subscribe to this blog or to the youtube channel where this video is hosted and as always thanks for watching!
Greetings everyone, peace and blessing to you. Below I am sharing two video clips of two of my advanced students testing for their blue belts. For those who are unaware Shu Ha Ri Do has 7 phases, blue belt is the 4th phase. These two students show excellent form for the level that they are at, of course I will only expect for that level to continue to “elevate”. I know it will. If you are interested in training or learning more about Shu Ha Ri Do feel free to leave me a message below. If you like this site and the youtube channel don’t hesitate to like and subscribe. Until next time enjoy the videos.
Hello everyone, it is with pleasure that I share with you two short films of my students performing at the July 2019 Bas I Kyokushin tournament of which two 4 of them won 2nd place. In Kyokushin style tournaments there are no punches to the face or head but to the body only, however, kicks to the head are allowed. Now, I know some of you are thinking what? Well, the logic is that a kick to the head is harder to land. The littlest student you see
in this video just turned 4 and is a white belt going against older and higher ranked students. Such is the Shu Ha Ri Way meeting a challenge with a strategy and force conquering fear, and mastering self with Wisdom Before Combat. If the content of my blog inspires you don’t hesitate to subscribe. Also subscribe to the Shu Ha Ri Do Youtube channel @shuahrido, and scroll the the many books I have written on safety, training, and self mastery. Until next time enjoy the video.
Greetings everyone, it’s been a short while since my last post. I have had some new ventures that I’ve been working on one of them is the new online store www.shuharido.net. However, I am return to you today with more entertaining content with some of my students taking on the bottle cap challenge enjoy and as always thank you for visiting.
Greetings everyone, I hope this post finds you encouraged, inspired, and walking close with the Kingdom of Heaven. I present to you in this video two of my little proteges learning to discipline themselves through friendly combat. As always with any combat friendly or otherwise the Code I teach is wisdom first! In my teaching the more a student trains the more humble he or she becomes. The focus is always to master self to such a degree that you are able to overlook the majority of offenses. Unless in a competition combat then becomes only about protecting self and family from harm if it ever came to that. These two little proteges are well on their way to learning the Code.
Greetings everyone, in this post I will be sharing one of the techniques from Phase 3 the Green Belt phase of Shu Ha Ri Do the “Side Straddle” take-down. This technique is very simple but nearly impossible to resist if done properly. There are several other throws and take-downs featured in Phase 3 this is one of the favorites.
Greetings everyone, it is my pleasure to announce that one of my students Alfonso “CHOC” Frierson got a 1st round K.O. in his pro boxing debut. CHOC has been training with me for 8 years. He has excelled as a student utilizing my principles of “Flex Fist Boxing” and other Shu Ha Ri Do concepts. Although I also teach conventional boxing he also has two boxing conditioning coaches Robert and Ray Chavez who have done an excellent job preparing him. As of now I do not have video footage of the fight, I am waiting for it to be released so stay tuned to the site for updates. Until then enjoy two videos below of CHOC training and sparring with other Shu Ha Ri Do students.
Greetings everyone, in the video below I share with you a technique I teach in the grappling phase of Shu ha Ri Do (Phase 3 Green Belt).
This technique requires timing. For example, you cannot simply expect to lift your opponent’s foot off of the ground. A fake to the face or a push will serve to cause your opponent to flinch or lean backwards which shifts weight off of the front foot. Also, chopping the Achilles tendon will ensure that you are able to “snatch” the ankle/foot off of the ground as you will see in the video. Once in the air quickly switch the foot to the other hand and use the free hand to strike your opponent in the stomach or ribs, pushing him while kick sweeping the leg he/she is standing on.
Greetings everyone I strive to deliver stimulating content to you at least every other day. I have been preoccupied with some very important matters that had my focus temporarily divided, but now I am back with an article that I am sure you will find interesting. In the video below I share a principle that is an important part of FLEX FIST BOXING (Conventional Boxing is also a big part of what I teach). After watching this video please refer to the links below for more info on Shu Ha Ri Do FLEX FIST BOXING.
Greetings everyone, in Shu Ha Ri Do the jab is a big part of how we dictate and control the pace of fights. In fact there have even been knockouts based on how I teach the jab. Maximizing the mechanics that I teach helps you to develop the knockout power that I speak of, with just the jab. Click here for a video of one of my students ALFONSO “CHOC” FRIERSON from the DAWGFIGHT documentary executing the power of the “Shu Ha Ri Do Jab” with surgical precision. However, the video I present to you below is about using the jab while moving forward.
