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 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, although the “death touch” is the stuff of legend, it is based in truth and deals with a deep knowledge of the nerve centers (energy clusters) of the body. In this fictional scene Jean Claude Van Damme (as Frank Dux) demonstrates the “penetrating power” of the “death touch”. This is just a cool scene I decided to share. If you like martial arts and have not seen this movie, I consider it a must watch! It’s just one of those “cult classic” martial arts movies that everyone especially martial artists should see.
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 I strive to deliver stimulating content to you at least every other day. I have been preoccupied with some very important matters that had my focus temporarily divided, but now I am back with an article that I am sure you will find interesting. In the video below I share a principle that is an important part of FLEX FIST BOXING (Conventional Boxing is also a big part of what I teach). After watching this video please refer to the links below for more info on Shu Ha Ri Do FLEX FIST BOXING.
If you are a follower or subscriber or a follower of my blog you are aware of my book “FLEX FIST BOXING”. In the video below I present more info on the concepts I teach. As I have stated before FLEX FIST BOXING is not a replacement for conventional boxing. However, it is an excellent compliment. I am absolutely confident that these concepts will enhance your boxing and self defense skills.
With precision Andre Berto explains how Floyd Mayweather systematically dismantles opponents. Whatever you may think of his fights, no one can deny that his methods are masterful! Offense gets the glory but defense wins the game.
If you are familiar with Shu Ha Ri Do then you are already aware that along with everything else I also teach conventional boxing. In phase one students are introduced to the 10 count of “Flex Fist Boxing” and the 10 count of conventional boxing. In phase two along with a host of other techniques students go deeper into the science of conventional boxing. Things like timing, footwork, head movement, and much more. In this video you will see mitt work with students going through different punch counts, and a little bit of our footwork drills at the end.
Khabib has threatened to leave the UFC unless the apparent double standard stops. Obviously, I do not condone wreckless acts, however, in this video the You-tube channel host @joeingram1 investigates what has been missed by many about Conor’s behavior. There is more to the story, things are not what they seem. As you watch this video, think of everything that I teach and write about in reference to Shu Ha Ri Do. Think of the title of this blog “WARRIOR WISDOM”.
It is my view that all warriors should live by a code, that includes among other things honor, integrity, humility, and wisdom. Having a code is important because as warriors we are trained in combat strategies so as my slogan states “Wisdom Before Combat” is very important.
On test day sparring is an important part of judging a student’s application of technique. In this video 3 white belts testing for Gold belt, squared off against each other testing their skill with strikes to the body only, in the Shu Ha Ri Do version of “Bull In The Ring”.
Hello everyone, here is some food for thought for you. In this video you will see a matches of David versus Goliath (Hong-Min Choi)! I have to tell you that in a tournament situation this kind of size is an unfair advantage. That does not meant that there has not been cases where “David” has won. However, if both had an equal amount of training and preparation, and have the same four limbs for weapons, there is one thing left for you to understand. SIZE IS ALSO A WEAPON, and we are not talking about a basic difference like 3 or 4 inches.
Just look at the video and you will see what I am saying here. In my view I would not get into a ring with someone as big as the person in the video. Not out of fear but out of realism. In the streets it would be a completely different situation, there are many things I could do from a combat perspective to equalize the situation. However, in a ring there are rules.
