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, in Shu Ha Ri Do the jab is a big part of how we dictate and control the pace of fights. In fact there have even been knockouts based on how I teach the jab. Maximizing the mechanics that I teach helps you to develop the knockout power that I speak of, with just the jab. Click here for a video of one of my students ALFONSO “CHOC” FRIERSON from the DAWGFIGHT documentary executing the power of the “Shu Ha Ri Do Jab” with surgical precision. However, the video I present to you below is about using the jab while moving forward.
Greetings everyone, I am very pleased to make this post about an achievement of one of my students. He took first place in his division at the Bas I Kyokushin tournament in Arizona. As you watch the video there are certain elements about his movements that define what I teach the foot work, the timing, placing of certain kicks etc. He did very well representing Shu Ha Ri Do. I also want to thank Grandmaster James, and Hanshi Ali for their contributions to me and my students. My students and I love belonging to the Bas Kyokushin family. Shu Ha Ri Do Bas I Kyokushin indeed! Congratulations “Shen Sook” OSU!!!
Thanks for watching. Feel free to contact me if you would like to train with me. Every teacher offers something useful, some more than others. When I created Shu Ha Ri Do 21 years ago I took notes from everything, all styles, my competitions, animals, video games, movies and more. I decided I include only what I thought was the most useful techniques that wasted no energy. Among other big parts, not wasting energy is a big part of Shu Ha Ri Do. Feel free to leave me a message at the bottom and I will respond. Until then Godspeed everyone.
Greetings everyone, in this post I am pleased to share with you one of my “Flex Fist Boxing” principles. The “Hinge Fist”. I call it Hinge Fist because of the “opening door” effect of the movement, and because the joint of the arm actually works like hinges on a door. This is one of the “principles of speed” I write about in my book “Flex Fist Boxing”. Well, now that I’ve said that enjoy the video.
When it comes to greatness in anything, there is a thin line of separation. Finding that edge that will separate you from good to better is one thing. however, find the edge to greatness is very difficult and many don’t achieve it. In this video I appreciate George St. Pierre’s approach to finding that edge.
Greetings everyone, I am starting a series of videos showing some of the “Best Street Defense” techniques in Shu Ha Ri Do. The video below is #1 showing the effectiveness of the “Spear Hand”. Keep in mind as you watch and practice my techniques that there is no “silver bullet” technique. View all techniques I show as tools for your toolbox that will help you provide appropriate “solution” for the appropriate “problem”. As you watch the video you will see the simplicity and usefulness of the technique immediately.
Hello everyone in this video you will see scenes featuring two of my students testing for gold and red belt. There are 7 phases in Shu Ha Ri Do, gold belt is the 2nd phase and red belt is the 5th phase. I am pleased to say that they passed their tests. This video shows a good cross section of what the physical techniques of Shu Ha Ri Do are about. Boxing, kickboxing, kung fu, full contact karate, judo, wrestling, submissions, my signature “Flex Fist Boxing, and Combat Maneuvers (COMS).
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.
This movie is a perfect blend of comedy and the realness of martial arts. The movie marks an iconic period of time, 1985! During this time period there were a lot of things happening. You will get that feeling and know exactly what I am talking about as soon as you press play. This scene with “The Glow” by Willie Hutch playing in the background gives me chills every time I see it.
