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.

Greetings everyone, I am pleased to present to you the first 3 prologues of the Shu Ha Ri Do next generation series that will be released very soon. If you are not aware already Shu Ha Ri Do is a martial arts system I created in 1998. I have had several masters and grand masters share their knowledge with me. However, due to my intense pursuit of knowledge I have also had my own epiphanies and unique observations about martial arts and life in general which has become what you see within Shu Ha Ri Do. With that being said this series will attempt to convey the evolution of Shu Ha Ri Do up to this day with a story line that mirrors Shu Ha Ri Do wisdom. Next Gen is mostly about the evolution of Shu Ha Ri Do, there will at some point be a series that conveys the “origin” of Shu Ha Ri Do. Until then join us in the Shu Ha Ri Do NG adventure. If you haven’t already please feel free to view the trailers that have already been posted by clicking here!

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.

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.

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, 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.
