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.

Hello everyone, I hope you have all been doing well, and feeling inspired and powerful. I present to you today a simple African proverb,
“SMOOTH SEAS DO NOT MAKE SKILLFUL SAILORS”.
In life we have all faced what can be described as “rough seas”. It is how you view those situations that determine how you handle them. If you VIEW them as hopeless, destructive, or back breaking, then you will have little to no determination, drive, or energy, to find answers and fight your way through.
Moving forward because you chose a hopeless VIEW, you will indeed HANDLE those times hopelessly, and those times will become destructive and back breaking for you.
To change the way you handle life you must change your VIEW. Always look at rough seas as training moments, any training a person goes through helps them to acquire skills. Look at it this way, you do not have to go through the “rough seas” blindly and thus haphazardly acquire the skills in question.
You can seek knowledge on just about any “rough sea” you could ever face. In the 90’s I spent hours upon hours in libraries and book stores 3 or four times a week for years with 20 to 30 books on the table absorbing knowledge. Nowadays, Google, or YouTube has tons of “how to’s”, there is simply no reason for hopelessness, especially with prayers. Keep in mind also that these are lessons anyone would want their child to know, so why not foster such knowledge in your own life?
So, in summary VIEW the “rough seas” as making you a skillful sailor, after all you ARE the captain of your soul…
Greetings fellow wisdom seekers. As always it is my hope that today’s post finds you healthy, wealthy, wise, and powerful. It is also my hope that today’s post will make you even wiser. Below is a short story about a Chinese farmer written by Alan Watts.
The story goes like this:
Once upon a time there was a Chinese farmer, who lost a horse. It ran away. And all the neighbors came around that evening and said, “That’s too bad.” And he said, “Maybe.”
The next day the horse came back, bringing seven wild horses with it. And all the neighbors came around and said, “Oh, that’s great isn’t it?” And he said, “Maybe.”
The next day his son was attempting to tame one of these horses and ride it. He was thrown and broke his leg. And all the neighbors came around in the evening and said, “Oh, dear that’s too bad.” And the farmer said, “Maybe.”
The following day the conscription officers came around looking for people to recruit into the army and they rejected his son, because he had a broken leg. And all the people came around and said, “Well that’s great isn’t it?” And he said, “Maybe.”
Many times in my posts I provide an in depth illustration of what’s presented. However, I find that the lesson in this story shines through with surgical precision. I could summarize it like this however, in life remain poised, hold your “horses/emotions” (when things happen) and never get ahead of them. Always take note and learn from everything good or bad, knowing that there is always more than meets the eye. Sometimes what we see our don’t see may just be a matter of limited perception…
Hello everyone! I come to you today with a cool little metaphor, an illustration of a Chinese proverb. In this life goals can be elusive. Trying to achieve what you desire does not come without effort. However, if you are trying to achieve two, or worse 3 or four at the same time. You should keep this metaphor in mind because like these wolves you will exhaust yourself. As you observe the rabbit above with BARRY SANDERS like moves, you can clearly see that one “rabbit” is challenging enough! Focus your mind, to conquer you A.D.D. do not “ADD” more than one goal at a time. I feel what I have said thus far is enough for you to meditate on so I will leave it at that. Have a great day everyone and Godspeed in your quest.
Hello, everyone, I share with you today another bit of wisdom as usual in parable, riddle like form. TRANSPARENT, BUT APPARENT. TRAINED EYES SEE…
In life there can be many traps set by very clever predators.
All of us would definitely call a spider an apex predator. What or who have you seen in this life can be compared to spiders.
Think of the very intricate webs they weave. Think of how clear and almost noticeable the webs are. How many of us to our terror have accidentally run into a spider web? Think of the panicked way we flail around trying to get untangled. Now think of an insect who runs into the same web and ask yourself if the insect had seen the web would he still have flown into it? Now as you know here at the “Warrior Wisdom Blog” I use a lot of metaphors. I leave you with a question on this topic. What are the webs in your life that you need to avoid…
And now a bit of good news! I have recently started a store based on my concepts I teach. Below you will find a shirt illustrated the article you just read. If you like my blog and have been inspired by what I share. Please Rep The “DO” by purchasing one of the awesome tee shirts on the site. The store is just beginning and there will be much more merchandise added in the weeks to come. Join me in promoting Warrior Wisdom by wearing merchandise with a wise message. The name of the store is The “DO” collection, DO means way in this case the “Way” of Shu Ha Ri Do Warrior Wisdom. You do not have to be a martial artist to be wise, but it is my goal that every Shu Ha Ri Do martial artist will indeed be wise. Godspeed in your quest.
Greetings everyone, it is my prayer that my post finds everyone motivated and inspired on the path to self mastery, the life long journey. Today I bring you a thought which I will illustrate and summarize. The thought is simply, “Respond wisely, even when you are treated unwisely”. Let me tell you from experience that this will be one of the continuous challenges of your life. The wiser you become, the better you will treat people, however, the wiser you become it will seem like some people treat you worse. It is a conundrum I have noticed. You will find that you will have to grow in your humility, and patience as you will find yourself pardoning others often. Don’t be discouraged, this is the path of self mastery, this is the true “Warriors Path”. And now for the 3 areas…
WITH STRANGERS OR PEOPLE WHOM YOU HAVE NO CONTINUOUS ASSOCIATION
These are people whom you see randomly like a mail lady, cashier, neighbor, business owners, etc. Please understand that these people are not in your circle. They should be no where near your heart so their unwise treatment should not matter as much. If they annoy you, you can go to another restaurant or store. You also do not have to respond, silence is a great source of strength. You have no obligation to maintain a dialogue with them. So you can “unplug” their negative unwise energy with silence.
Now here is where we take a step closer to the heart. Now my advice is to protect your heart by maintaining a certain level of separation when it comes to work. How you can you protect your heart simply by being professional and objective. Am I saying that you should show no feelings? Absolutely not. However, as we all know some co-workers can treat you very unwisely. So you must maintain a high level of professionalism. At work you will many times find yourself in awkward positions where you feel forced to interact with a co-worker who treats you unwisely. At those times remain focused on the objectives and let the objectives be your common ground just throw your energy into getting the job done and dominating your work. Again remember that “silence is a great source of strength” you can also “unplug” the negative unwise energy of a co-worker with being silent whenever they attempt to treat you unwisely. If the treatment continues and they leave you know choice, you can go to the next level and get management involved. However, utilize silence repetitiously before you do and watch your wisdom will shine like the sun.
Here is where we get to the heart of the matter. It is very difficult indeed to simply ignore or remain silent when family treats you unwisely. I can tell from experience that because of your love for them you will be forced to pardon family members. Some of them will absolutely break your heart with how they treat you. It is something that if you continue to build yourself up and maintain a strong relationship with God, you will be prepared to do. Many times due to our love for family members they are actually able to grow and become better people. However, there is a limit to how much unwise treatment we should take from family. When the unwise treatment endangers you, other family, or household safety, is where the line should be drawn.
Well everyone, I just wanted to illustrate and summarize a thought that was on my mind. Hopefully you found this article useful, Godspeed in your quest for self mastery.
Hello everyone, I present you today with a bit of wisdom from the book of Proverbs in the Bible. These words are surgical in their presentation of how to keep chaos out of your life. If you scroll through all of the articles that I have posted on this blog you will see how my words are a constant echo of what you are about to read. It is my hope that some people somewhere are inspired by the “Warrior Wisdom Blog” if so my work is not in vain. With that being said enjoy…
1 My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, 2 turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding—
3 indeed, if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, 4 and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, 5 then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God. 6 For the LORD gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. 7 He holds success in store for the upright, he is a shield to
those whose walk is blameless, 8 for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones. 9 Then you will understand what is right and just and fair—every good path. 10 For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul. 11 Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you. 12 Wisdom will save you from the ways of wicked men, from men whose words are perverse, 13 who have left the straight paths to walk in dark ways,
14 who delight in doing wrong and rejoice in the perverseness of evil, 15 whose paths are crooked and who are devious in their ways.
