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.
Whether you are a martial artist/athelete, or not I encourage everyone to engage in stretching daily. Stretching should be a part of your routine. Below I have listed some of the benefits of stretching, as well as a cool video showing me and my stretch machine late one night.
I created my own version of a Mook Jung (Wing Chun Dummy) back in 1992. I trained on the dummy for several hours every day for years. During that period of time I developed my own punch block patterns. These patterns were the very beginning of my creation of Shu Ha Ri Do in 1998. These patterns are absolutely only the beginning of the 7 belt system I call Shu Ha Ri Do. A system that includes conventional boxing, full contact karate principles, muay thai, wrestling, submission, creative elements, even animalistic forms.
In Shu Ha Ri Do, there are 7 phases in this video I share concepts from the animalistic phase, level 3 “The Fury of the Birds”. The form you see is one of several original forms in Shu Ha Ri Do. I call these forms COMS, short for COMBAT MANEUVERS.
BE SURE TO READ THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING THE CHART BELOW BEFORE DOWNLOADING
Hello everyone, below is my strike zone philosophy. I hope this helps you in your quest to keep yourself and your family safe.
As you examine the chart keep in mind the “Center Line Principle” which highlights that most vital spots of an attacker are located along the center line of the body. These areas are the:
There are many other pressure points and vital areas of course, however, when attacked these are readily accessible. You will notice that included are some areas not found on the center line such as the knees, temples, &feet. The knees, and temples although not found on the center
line are vita as well. When protecting yourself against an attacker remember these three things:
If they can’t see they can’t attack!
If they can’t breathe they can’t attack!
If they can’t stand they can’t!
