BEST STREET DEFENSE TECHNIQUES #1

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.

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).

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.

INSPIRING SCENE FROM “THE LAST DRAGON” ONE OF THE BEST MARTIAL ARTS MOVIES OF ALL TIME!

 

Image result for the last dragon

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.

SHU HA RI DO COMBAT MANEUVERS (COMS) STREET READY TECHNIQUES

These techniques are called COMS or Combat Maneuvers. These are to be practiced repetitively. However, know this the idea is not that you will hit an opponent with every shot. That is not practical. Landing 2 or 3 shots is a more reasonable expectation. You train repetitively on all techniques for muscle memory. As a result when the opportunity presents itself your hands or feet hit by themselves…

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”.

SPARRING CLIPS

Sparring is a somewhat friendly exchange of technique. It enables students to be able to practice applying what they learn in a somewhat “real time” scenario. In this video you will see some of that application.

FROM WATER TO ICE A FLEX FIST BOXING CONCEPT

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

FROM WATER TO ICE, A FLEX FIST BOXING CONCEPT

A FLEX FIST BOXING CONCEPT

From Water to Ice

As some of you are already aware I published a book called Flex Fist Boxing.

This book illustrates a non-conventional boxing concept that I put together.

Although I teach conventional boxing as well, I feel the Flex Fist Boxing

concepts are incredibly useful in gaining an edge over a fighter who uses

conventional boxing only. The reason I say from water to ice can be easily

understood but not necessarily easily applied. It takes practice. As you can

see in the image above the HAND IS WATER and the FIST IS ICE. What I am

showing you here is how you should keep your hands open and calm like

water until the moment of impact. At the moment of impact the

“water” freezes. This causes an increase in velocity because in order to

“freeze” the “water” you must FLEX. Flexing is freezing! So think of it like

this “Flex Fist Boxing” can be visualized as “Freeze Fist Boxing”. Also,

although I call it “CODE OF THE FLEXING FIST”  I teach students to flex

multiple parts of the body upon impact. I am sharing this to give more

insight into my contribution to the martial arts world. No martial art has

the market cornered on creative elements. There are many great martial

arts instructors out there some of whom I am still learning from myself.

What I share is simply what I have to offer in Shu Ha Ri Do. It is my hope

that I have inspired you with what I have to offer as a Sifu. I will be posting

more articles to explain some of the other metaphorical illustrations of Flex

Fist Boxing. Please like, comment, or share and thanks for reading.
