A DAY OF BOXING AND FOOT WORK.

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.

WHY KHABIB AND HIS CAMP WERE SO ANGRY AT CONOR McGREGOR. THE TRUTH!!!

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.

3 WHITE BELTS TEST THEIR SKILL AGAINST EACH OTHER ON TEST DAY!

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”.

THE STORY OF HOW I CREATED SHU HA RI DO, AND MY MOTIVATION FOR WRITING AND TEACHING

WHAT WOULD YOU DO AGAINST AN OPPONENT THIS BIG???

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)! Image result for el titan de laI 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.

WORKING BOXING MECHANICS WITH THE LITTLE ONES

IN THIS VIDEO I TAKE A ONE ON ONE APPROACH WITH TWO OF MY

YOUNGEST STUDENTS. SHOWING THEM PRECISELY THE MECHANICS OF

EACH PUNCH IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR THEIR FUTURE DEVELOPMENT.

ALTHOUGH I TEACH A CONCEPT OF BOXING THAT I CALL “FLEX FIST

BOXING” I ALSO TEACH CONVENTIONAL BOXING. IN THIS VIDEO YOU

WILL SEE SOME OF MY APPROACH TO THE MECHANICS OF

CONVENTIONAL BOXING.

TRAPS AND STANDING JOINT LOCK TRANSTIONS

In this video I show basic transitions we use in Shu Ha Ri Do to facilitate

standing joint locks. It is all about the “flow” of energy. Do not try to

“muscle” an attacker, “flow” with and redirect them with joint

manipulation. In this video you will learn a few useful techniques that, with

practice will help you control an attacker.

AN EXPLANATION OF WHY I SAY “CODE’ OF THE FLEXING FIST, AND WHY I USE THE ATOM AS A SYMBOL

 

Why do I call it “CODE” of the Flexing Fist?

Well, simply because the

punches of Flex Fist Boxing move in

a straight and circular repeating

pattern like a code. Flex Fist

Boxing consists of five punches:

  1. Closing Fist
  2. Spinning Fist
  3. Hinge Fist
  4. Swivel Fist
  5. Hammer Fist

Below is an image of an atom. As you

can see the electrons are traveling in a

circular pattern around the nucleus.

You can think of the nucleus as the face

of your opponent. The only minor

difference would be center punches like

the Spinning Fist and Closing Fist

which would come straight down the

middle of the image. This is why in

the Flex Fist Boxing logo you see a fist at

the center of the image. As you can

see the electrons “stay in their lanes”

around the nucleus. In Flex Fist Boxing

as well as Conventional Boxing each

punch has a lane.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When you look at the Flex Fist Boxing

logo you see letters C, S, H, H, and S

this also lends itself to the idea of a

“CODE” once again the 5 punches are:

  1. Closing Fist
  2. Spinning Fist
  3. Hinge Fist
  4. Swivel Fist
  5. Hammer Fist

As stated before these punches move in

circular repeating patterns. Now, If

I am using electrons as a metaphor for

punches, then how electrons actually

move should be made clear. It has

been revealed that electrons actually

disappear and reappear on their way

around the nucleus. So, I teach my

students to  imagine their fists as

electrons disappearing and reappearing to

and from the face and head of their

opponent. One of the ways such an

action can be achieved is by flexing

on the way out and flexing on the way

back in. Flexing creates the necessary

explosion needed for firing out and

back in. Thus mimicking the disappearing

and reappearing effect. Now this

may be hard to fully visualize however,

it is completely possible and my

students train hard at mastering

these concepts. I hope you enjoyed this

brief explanation of another side of my

Flex Fist Boxing concepts. Thanks

FROM WATER TO ICE, A FLEX FIST BOXING CONCEPT

SHOWING TWO TECHNIQUES FROM FLEX FIST BOXING

Shu Ha Ri Do from past to present. A visual timeline.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for taking

subscribing to my blog. As many know, Shu Ha Ri Do is a

martial art system with Christian values.  I would like to share

something with you. Two people told me when I was ages 9

and 16 that I would influence a lot of people to have a

relationship with God and be better people. I didn’t believe at

age 9 I can remember thinking it was a joke. At age 16 someone

else told me nearly the exact same thing. At that point I began

to consider it but still doubted the validity of it. As a look over

my life and the the hundreds of lives changed, by the code of

ethics in Shu Ha Ri Do, I can only say that what they told me

came true…

Thanks for reading, I can only hope that my site inspires you,

and that your interest in my work grows, as the Shu Ha Ri Do

evolution continues.

Generating power for self defense striking

Greetings everyone and thanks for stopping by again. In this video I will be sharing my concept for generating power from the ground upwards. It is a simple but effective explanation. Although this video is from a self defense perspective, the concept can be utilized for competition as well. I hope you find it helpful.
