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.
When you see a porcupine, or hedgehog does anything make them worried or anxious? When faced with a threat do you think one would panic? You see, a full grown porcupine knows it self, it knows that it is WELL ARMED even in the presence of danger.
Are you full “grown”? Do you know yourself? Are you well “armed”. When I say well armed I mean well protected (Like the scripture Eph 6:10 put on the full armor of God). Here you are at the “Shu Ha Ri Do Warrior Wisdom” Blog. What is the “armor” I’m promoting? Yes it’s wisdom. Wisdom will protect you and your family. There are many areas that you should become wise in that I write about. Simply look at the categories and you will see what I mean. The wiser you become about the various threats of life, the more you can “armor” up to protect yourself and your household.
Rest assured the more you grow in wisdom and apply it, the less anxious, or worried you will be when faced with anything. You will have full confidence in the “armor” of wisdom/protection that you have surrounded yourself with. Any person, or circumstance that seeks to hurt, steal, or create chaos, in your household or life will be just as hesitant as the jaguar pictured above.
To summarize, when you are filled with wisdom you will be “well armed” “well protected” and prepared for anything mental, physical, or spiritual. So build yourself up with wisdom from my blog and walk in peace with zero anxiety like the porcupine. Always remembering the “point” illustrated above, that the porcupine doesn’t stab its attacker, the attacker stabs itself! So the next time you hear someone say “I’m a lion” you tell them you’re a porcupine, watch their reaction then share this article with them.
That OBLIVION (complete unawareness) has become the usual.
DEPUTIZING (to make a deputy) all who are IMMUTABLE (unwilling to change).
Consider the word “nation”.
Next, ponder the word “reputation”.
With contemplation one can see what’s AFOOT (about to happen)
How to get unhooked?
Mind is to input.
As body is to output.
WAGE WAR WITH YOURSELF, AND ANYTHING THAT WILL CREATE CHAOS IN YOUR LIFE. YOU “KNOW” WHAT THOSE THINGS ARE. BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF THINK OF WHAT YOU WOULD TELL YOUR CHILDREN TO DO. DO NOT ACCEPT A “YOLO” HAPPY GO LUCKY ATTITUDE FROM YOURSELF. FOCUS ON YOUR LEGACY AND WHAT YOU WANT YOUR CHILDREN TO BE. BE THE RIGHTEOUS EXAMPLE. KNOW THE ENEMY ON ALL LEVELS…
This is a raw an uncut video of a day in the life of an actual scammer, showing you all of the techniques and machinery they use to get your info. It is a a dangerous new world…ignorance is not bliss. If you do not learn you will be victimized at some point, and in many cases even if you do learn it can happen. We must all remain ahead of the learning curve to protect what
we work hard for. Knowing the enemy and his tactics is a big part of getting ahead of that curve.
Never let anyone know where you live until you know them well. Also let friends and family know when you will be alone with someone you are getting to know. Make use of your phone choose a few family members or close friends and allow them to track your phone via GPS.
2.TRUST YOUR INTUITION
Most of the time if something does not feel right, it isn’t!
3.BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS
Do not have your head buried in your cell phone when you are walking. Remain aware of your surroundings so that you can detect a “glitch in the matrix”.
Invest in pepper spray or a stun gun, and know the zones on the body that you should strike to stop an attacker. You have to develop a side of you that thinks like a predator would. You simply cannot walk around thinking that the world is this big happy place and that it’s your playground. People are victimized daily especially those who think that way. You must be able TOflip the switch and STOP someone from attacking you.
5.BE WISE WITH SOCIAL MEDIA
Turn off your location settings! If you MUST post personal things make sure it’s view-able by family or close friends only!
6.DON’T TRUST EASILY
If you suspect something be decisive. If someone approaches you on the street you should feel zero remorse about stopping the conversation when you feel that something is not right. If you think someone is following you
enter the closest building, and tell someone that you think you are being followed. Take not of what the person looks like and the vehicle they are driving so that you can pass this on to the police.
REGARDING EMPLOYMENT OFFERS
7.GET CREDIBLE ADVICE
If you are offered what seems like an exciting job opportunity locally or in another country, it is imperative that you ask several questions, and get a lot of advice from friends, family, lawyers and professionals in a related field.
8.VAGUE INFORMATION ABOUT THE JOB
If you are give no further information about the company or job after you call, then you should take that as a confirmation of a scam. Overall be wary want ads, street signs, internet employment offers that sound too good to be true.
Also be wary when someone recruits you via social media. Never, accept advice, opportunities, or money from someone recruiting you via social media.
Greetings everyone and thank you for visiting. In this article I wanted to encourage to establish a home security plan. In addition to an alarm system, what I am sharing with you today is a good start, or great additions to your existing plan. Before we get to the items I must say there are many other things that you can do that are not on this list. These are some of the things that I know about mostly from personal experience. With that being said here are the 8 things.
This item I love because I have used solar lighting around my home for years because it adds nothing to your electric bill. However, these lights are actually has motion sensors and are much brighter than the average solar lights. Just scroll through the images below or click the links to read more from Amazon. I currently do not have these but I will purchasing them as soon as I am done posting this article lol. I am believe that lighting is 50% of the battle when it comes to security, criminals love darkness.
Now these I highly encourage for your windows. From inside your home you simply slide them over the edge of the slide track and screw them down tightly. This prevents your window from being pried and slide open. Simple yet effective.
Now, as I mentioned earlier, these are only some of the things your can add to your plan. I have included other safety and security tips in previous articles that you should check out especially the one about sliding glass doors click to read that one now. It is simply a must read, I share things that I’ve become aware of about tactics criminals use to get into sliding glass doors that I’m sure you never thought of! It is my hope that my blog is informing, encouraging, inspiring, strengthening you, making you wise keeping you safe, and bringing your closer to our Creator and Father.
For more clarity about the poem you just read. What do I mean when I say vibe? A vibe< like a noun can be a person place or thing. What kind of places are negative? Clubs, many parties, some neighborhoods. What kind of things could be negative? Music, movies, certain activities, and much more.
You have to keep it real with yourself. You know when something is righteous or not. However, if you choose to ignore the obvious red flags, then you simply cannot be surprised at what chaos comes to your life.
First of all it is a major disappointment to God as he is the author of marriage. He encouraged the first husband and wife to “be fruitful and multiply”. Biblically speaking it is a sacred bond between a man and a woman where “the two become one flesh”. The act of adultery is also called unfaithfulness. I am sure we all can agree that faithfulness is a good thing. With that being said, there should be no debate as to whether unfaithfulness is a bad thing. It is. Now, I am not writing this to beat those who have struggled or given into this over the head. I am writing this to shed light on how, and why you should change. Adultery/unfaithfulness betrays the expectations that God has regarding relationships.
2. IT BETRAYS YOUR WIFE/HUSBAND
When you enter into a relationship even if it’s girlfriend or boyfriend faithfulness is expected. Who starts dating with the idea that unfaithfulness is ok? So don’t think of this article in terms of what you have been taught about marriage. Marriage is much more than a license. Ask yourself these questions, how were people married before the 1800’s? What was the “REAL” reason for the marriage license when it started? Do you know? What was “common law marriage” how different is it from long term dating? What about those who marry just for citizenship are they really married? Is God going to ask for your marriage license?
What does the word marry mean? Think in terms of engineering? Well, when you research these answers you will have a clearer picture of the value of a relationship, and how you should approach them license or not. Here is another question to ask yourself, what about contracting and transferring a disease. Now that would be double betrayal! What I am saying here is, regardless of a license if you are unfaithful, you are betraying the person you are with.
3. IT BETRAYS YOUR CHILDREN
If you have children please understand that you are betraying them as well. Not only does your mate have an expectation that you will be faithful but, your children do as well. You must be real about the painful effects. Think of the embarrassment that your children will experience especially if things end in a public display which usually happens. Think of your daughter orson copying the same behavior, or worse endorsing, and enduring it. Meditate on this…
4. IT BETRAYS YOUR LEGACY
You must understand that you are building a legacy with your actions. If you are living a life of betraying relationships that goes on your “moral resume” which is basically your LEGACY. Your children run the risk of following in your footsteps. You simply must see the impact faithfulness and loyalty to your mate has on your moral resume/legacy. You and your mate are the builders, the designers of what will be your bloodline the merger of two seeds! So choose your mate wisely, and when you have a good one DO NOT sabotage it with betrayal!
THE 7 STRATEGIES OF PROTECTION
1. YOU SIMPLY MUST DECIDE THAT YOU WILL NOT DO IT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES
I have written several posts about “CODE” which is basically a set of principles, I live by a biblical code. If you use this information properly I can assure you that it will keep chaos away from you home. Meditate on this
post and decide that you will live by a code of integrity, morality, faithfulness, trustworthiness, and wisdom. Decide that under no circumstances will you betray your relationship. Even when they make you mad after an argument, betrayal is never justified.
2. THINK OF HOW YOU WOULD FEEL IF IT WERE DONE TO YOU
For most of us this would cause a tremendous amount of pain. Ask yourself would you want your daughter or son to feel this. So regardless of whether your husband or wife said something hurtful or made you angry. Do not make a permanent decision over a temporary emotion. There are much better ways to deal with conflicts. If your spouse is abusive you could get counseling, separate, or worst case scenario divorce. As I mentioned in step 1. live by a code.
3. YOU MUST CLEARLY DEFINE WHAT IS APPROPRIATE AND INAPPROPRIATE WITH THE OPPOSITE SEX (BE AWARE ALSO THAT AS OF NOW ANY SEX WILL PROPOSITION YOU)
You must be real with yourself about those outside of your relationship. You and your spouse/mate must have talks about what is inappropriate. You cannot assume when you meet someone that they have the same habits, comfort zones, or cultural background as you. There are things that will cause problems in an otherwise good relationship, that people just do not think about. I will explain further in the following steps.
4. BE ON GUARD AT WORK, EXPECT FLIRTATION, ESTABLISH BOUNDARIES
You simply must not underestimate the impact jobs or careers can have on relationships. I would go as far as saying that jobs and careers are hostile to relationships. For example, there are many uncomfortable situations that women and men are forced into on jobs. Like being forced into awkward
lunch situations with the opposite sex due to a schedule. Being expected or coerced into buying a gift for a co-worker of the opposite sex whose name was pulled out of a hat i.e. “secret santa”. Working in confined quarters with the opposite sex where uncomfortable silences get broken by forced conversations, forced familiarity. Are you doubting this? Well, you have only to think of all the times when women and especially men have taken advantage of these types of scenarios. So many women have come forward to complain about sexual harassment on the job. This happens to men as well however, most either enjoy it or feel uncomfortable making complaint. Internalize 1. 2. and 3. and establish boundaries at your job.
5. BE CORDIAL BUT MEASURED WITH NEIGHBORS, ESTABLISH BOUNDARIES
Relationships with neighbors can also be an awkward science to master. However, master it you must because unless you live on a multi acre estate you will have neighbors. What you simply must be real about is the fact that everyone has character flaws. The character flaws that you are committed to tolerating and being patient with as they change are the ones in your home.
When it comes to those outside but right next door or across the street from your home you must be measured. You simple must not be overly friendly with your neighbor of the opposite sex. If you do you could very easily reinforce the wrong idea day after day and find yourself in an awkward situation faced with their character flaws and temptations. Or even worse have your flaws mingling with theirs, so maintain the intimacy and privacy of your home by setting boundaries with neighbors.
6. GOING TO NIGHTCLUBS IS TOXIC FOR MONOGAMOUS RELATIONSHIPS
Though some many not agree with this, I will pose some questions everyone must be real about. What time do clubs open? What time do they close? What are the main types of drinks at clubs? Are most people sober? Why do women drink free after midnight? Are guys looking for wives there? Are
women looking for husbands? Would you tell your daughter or son to look for her mates there? That smell in the air, is it pine? Why is Rohypnol called the club drug? I encourage you to meditate on these questions and your answers and watch the epiphany come over you.
7. ESTABLISH PHYSICAL AND MENTAL CHECK-POINTS
What I am about to share in this step is so important. What do I mean by check points? Let’s start with your eyes, they are a check point. They are a check point for your mind, the eyes are the first check point.
If something is forbidden or dangerous limit your looks to one or none if possible. The second check point is your mind/thoughts. If you continue looking you will continually think about what/who you are observing limit your thoughts to
one or none if possible. The 3rd and very dangerous check point is your feelings. What
you continually think about you will eventually begin to feel. You simply must stop this at the thought check point if it gets past your eyes. The fourth check point is communication at this point there should be all kinds
of sirens, bells, and whistles blowing in your mind warning you to stop! It is
at this point that your flaws/temptations begin to merge with the flaws/temptations of another. At this point the problem is no longer just inside of you, it is now outside of you. You have made known to the opposite sex that which should never have taken root in you. If the feelings are reciprocated now come the discussion of physical expression of the feelings, at this point all check points have been bypassed. You see I break it down like this to show that there is no such thing as “it just happened”.
No, it does not just happen. There are check points unfortunately for some those check points have no guards at the post. I will summarize this step in 5 words SIGHT, THOUGHT, FEELINGS, COMMUNICATION, ACTIONS.The four words you can use to summarize and internalize this teaching are “ESTABLISH & MAINTAIN PROPER BOUNDARIES”. You can build a great relationship! I speak from experience! You can do it! Apply the strategies that I share in this post, be consistent and watch the fortress of a relationship that emerges over time.
