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, 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.
This is a special edition of over 50 pages, celebrating the 50th anniversary in the martial arts of Grand master and World Martial Arts Hall of Fame member Newton James. This Magazine features a timeline of his history in the martial arts, and articles from several of his high ranking students and friends. As a student of Soke James in my article I share the powerful impact Soke has had in the evolution of Shu Ha Ri Do. The life of Soke James can truly be compared to a massive Oak Tree that has dropped thousands of acorns, which have also become oak trees in different stages of development.
This edition also highlights that Soke James has joined forces with Dr. Rupert and Dr. Nelson of “The Jamaica Diaspora Crime Intervention And Prevention Task Force (JDCIPTF”) Magazine publishing is a new endeavor for me. I am not sure what the magazine will become as it evolves and I refine the process. However, it is an honor for me to honor Soke James with this magazine!
