A DETAILED EXPLANATION OF SHU HA RI DO COMBAT MANEUVER #1

Hello everyone, and thanks for visiting today! If you are a subscriber or frequent visitor you are well aware that I Shu Ha Ri Do is a martial arts system that I created 21 years ago. Within the system are what I call COMS or Combat Maneuvers. In the video below I present to you an expanded illustration of COM 1. Please feel free to subscribe to this blog or to the youtube channel where this video is hosted and as always thanks for watching!

LIFE IS A BATTLE, BUT BE INSPIRED, BUILD YOURSELF, USE THE BEST BUILDING MATERIAL, CHOOSE THE #1 ALLY AND YOU WILL WIN.

 

Greetings everyone, it is my hope that this post finds you happy, healthy, and wise. It is also my hope that this article inspires you. It has been said that life is a battle which means, there is a war. There are many ways in which we must become wise to the war. A teenager getting through the challenges of high school,

 A college student advancing through college

A graduate finding a career

 Finding a husband or wife

Safely raising children

All of these can be seen as a battle, because none of them are easy. It requires “APPLIED KNOWLEDGE” which is what wisdom is. In battle you must most “APPLY KNOWLEGE” which is being wise. There are others ways we could be at war with the more directly evil elements of the world. However, I will not cover that here, I have found that if one governs oneself with the highest wisdom much of those element can be avoided. So to summarize getting knowledge is half of the battle, applying knowledge is the other half. However, there is still one last step to this “war winning strategy” I will illustrate them all below.

 



 

 BUILD YOURSELFRelated image

As I have mentioned in previous articles you must build yourself with righteous knowledge. Output is equivalent to input, what you put in your mind will be expressed through the body, do not doubt this it is irrefutable! Seek daily to build yourself with righteous Godly knowledge become consumed with it! I did back in the 90s when I copied the dictionary, basically lived in libraries and book stores, studied every type of bible, all major religions, philosophy, the sciences, and lived a life of celibacy for 6 years until marriage. I waged war against my mind and body throughout this time to become disciplined. During this time I perfected the martial arts system Shu Ha Ri Do that I founded in 1998. Most importantly during this time I forged a relationship with God that sustains me to this day. I can truly say that his power fortifies my soul and his passion for his people has become my passion. Which is why I do what I do, but I began with building myself with righteous knowledge and applying it. It is the path that I know for becoming an honorable, trustworthy, loyal, moral, person of integrity. It is the path, the Code that I teach. It is a “war winning strategy” I encourage you to start building yourself with righteous and Godly knowledge and applying it, wage war against the flaws you see in yourself and your output will be pleasing and powerful, I guarantee it.

 



USE THE BEST BUILDING MATERIAL

As I mentioned in the above section not only must you build yourself but if you want a Godly and righteous outcome you must use righteous “material”. For me concepts like, faithfulness, loyalty, truthfulness, morality, humility, patience, kindness, peace, and compassion, are “THE BEST BUILDING MATERIAL” all are concepts I found in the bible. Through applying these concepts in my life and in the lives of others I have forged powerful bonds of trust, love and loyalty. Through them I have built a strong family unit. You can too, you must wage war against temptations to be unfaithful, disloyal, untruthful, immoral, arrogant, impatient, unkind, chaotic, and uncompassionate. These are NOT “THE BEST BUILDING MATERIAL” using them is not a “war winning strategy” because they are self destructive.

 

CHOOSE THE #1 ALLY

Although I have many allies in this life, for me there is only one #1 Ally and that is God. I have declared my alliance with the Kingdom of Heaven. In a war the first ally I would choose would be the strongest one i.e. the #1,   I encourage everyone who have not to strongly consider it. Choosing the #1 ally is the “check mate” of this “war winning” strategy I present to you.

ALFONSO “CHOC” FRIERSON K.O.’S HIS OPPONENT IN THE 1ST ROUND IN HIS PRO BOXING DEBUT!

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, 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.

SHU HA RI DO STUDENT “SHEN SISOOK” TAKES 1ST PLACE IN ARIZONA BAS I KYOKUSHIN TOURNAMENT

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.

STREET DEFENSE TECHNIQUE #5 THE “HINGE FIST”

 

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.
