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.
If you are a follower or subscriber or a follower of my blog you are aware of my book “FLEX FIST BOXING”. In the video below I present more info on the concepts I teach. As I have stated before FLEX FIST BOXING is not a replacement for conventional boxing. However, it is an excellent compliment. I am absolutely confident that these concepts will enhance your boxing and self defense skills.
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.
Hello everyone, welcome to segment #2 of “Best Street Defense”. In this video I will be showing a very simple but useful strike to the ear that can incapacitate someone quickly. Remember, repetition is the key to mastery, 1,000 reps for discipline and 10,000 reps for mastery!
This is a technique featured in phase one level two of Shu Ha Ri Do. This is what I call “simultaneous block and strike”. To do the technique correctly you must be sure to move your head in addition to the slip block. The slip block is like guiding your opponents punch over your shoulder and returning a strike at the same time. Repetition is key to mastering this and any other technique. You must repeat, repeat, repeat, and repeat again.
As I have mentioned before, within Shu Ha Ri Do there are 7 phases. Blue the “Animalistic” phase is the 4th. In this video I present a newly promoted blue belt student with his belt and his first tie. In the “animalistic” phase students train in the characteristics, nature, and fight attributes of the Boa,Elephant, and Eagle.
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).
