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.
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.
Hello everyone, welcome to segment #2 of “Best Street Defense”. In this video I will be showing a very simple but useful strike to the ear that can incapacitate someone quickly. Remember, repetition is the key to mastery, 1,000 reps for discipline and 10,000 reps for mastery!
Hello everyone, and thanks for stopping by. In the video below you will get a deeper look into the creation and evolution of Shu ha Ri Do. If you are a subscriber or just a casual visitor guess what? You are a part of the evolution. The meaning of Shu Ha Ri can be summarized in three words, imitation, creation, perfection, watching, creating from what you watched, and perfecting what you created. This has been my walk as Sifu of Shu Ha Ri Do and pursuit of perfection in myself and Shu Ha Ri Do has never stopped, only evolved. With that being said, enjoy the video and please feel freel to share or subscribe.
Hello, everyone and happy new year! Below is a video of three basic throws that we use. They are the Ogoshi/Hip Toss, Osoto Gari/Leg Sweep and the Ippon Seoi Nage/Arm Throw. There are many other throws and take-downs that I teach in Shu Ha Ri Do however, these are three of the most basic.
Greetings everyone, I am starting a series of videos showing some of the “Best Street Defense” techniques in Shu Ha Ri Do. The video below is #1 showing the effectiveness of the “Spear Hand”. Keep in mind as you watch and practice my techniques that there is no “silver bullet” technique. View all techniques I show as tools for your toolbox that will help you provide appropriate “solution” for the appropriate “problem”. As you watch the video you will see the simplicity and usefulness of the technique immediately.
This is a technique featured in phase one level two of Shu Ha Ri Do. This is what I call “simultaneous block and strike”. To do the technique correctly you must be sure to move your head in addition to the slip block. The slip block is like guiding your opponents punch over your shoulder and returning a strike at the same time. Repetition is key to mastering this and any other technique. You must repeat, repeat, repeat, and repeat again.
As I have mentioned before, within Shu Ha Ri Do there are 7 phases. Blue the “Animalistic” phase is the 4th. In this video I present a newly promoted blue belt student with his belt and his first tie. In the “animalistic” phase students train in the characteristics, nature, and fight attributes of the Boa,Elephant, and Eagle.
