Sparring is an important part of learning how to apply technique in a fight scenario. Below are three videos showing students applying the techniques they have learned.
Shu Ha Ri Do, born in 1998 has had an impact on the lives of many. I am very grateful to God for inspiring me to make the most of the talents that he gave me at birth. It is my goal to inspire others to do the same, use the most of their God given talents to inspire others to live a righteous life, that would make him proud. In Shu Ha Ri Do, physical training plays a big part in helping one live a righteous life. The movements in Shu Ha Ri Do and many martial arts forge discipline within the mind and body. However, a spiritual/internal Code must compliment the physical and mental. In Shu Ha Ri Do, that Code is everything, without it you have physical movements only. The Shu Ha Ri Do Code consists of biblical principles of honor, love, loyalty, faithfulness, righteous thoughts, emotions, actions, and wisdom before combat. With that being said, below I present to you moments in time with “Reflections of the “DO”.
Before training we meditate however, we do not empty our minds. I teach my students to focus on a goal of their training or pray.
THANKS FOR READING THERE WILL BE MORE REFLECTION TO COME IN THE FUTURE.
In the video below my students show two very useful mount reversal drills from full mount and side mount. Repetitions are the key to mastery of technique! Watch practice repeat, and repeat again!
Shu Ha Ri Do is a martial arts system that I created in 1998. There are many
unique as well as conventional things about Shu Ha Ri Do. One of them is
Flex Fist Boxing as you can see I call it the “Code of the Flexing Fist”. Why
do I call it that? First, it is actually a code of 5 different fist
placements/punches and pulling fists moving in a circular pattern.
However, not just “moving” in a circular pattern, but like the electrons in an
atom that actually disappear and reappear in a circular pattern so the fists
of Shu Ha Ri Do students in theory should do the same. Now, not that our
hands will actually disappear however, simply thinking this way and
visualizing an atom will cause quicker punches. In addition to the atom philosophy there are targeted drills that I teach in Flex Fist Boxing that increase speed tremendously. In competition everyone is looking for an edge, I know I was, my Flex Fist Boxing concepts are not a replacement for conventional boxing I teach that as well, I can tell you however, that these concepts will enhance your striking in a powerful way!
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.

In Shu Ha Ri Do I teach students to go from zero to 60 in one beat or one count. In this video I explain this concept a little more in depth.
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 this video you will see just a few of the kick-boxing concepts in Shu Ha Ri Do.
