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 email@example.com.
Greetings everyone, I hope this post finds you encouraged, inspired, and walking close with the Kingdom of Heaven. I present to you in this video two of my little proteges learning to discipline themselves through friendly combat. As always with any combat friendly or otherwise the Code I teach is wisdom first! In my teaching the more a student trains the more humble he or she becomes. The focus is always to master self to such a degree that you are able to overlook the majority of offenses. Unless in a competition combat then becomes only about protecting self and family from harm if it ever came to that. These two little proteges are well on their way to learning the Code.
Greetings everyone, although the “death touch” is the stuff of legend, it is based in truth and deals with a deep knowledge of the nerve centers (energy clusters) of the body. In this fictional scene Jean Claude Van Damme (as Frank Dux) demonstrates the “penetrating power” of the “death touch”. This is just a cool scene I decided to share. If you like martial arts and have not seen this movie, I consider it a must watch! It’s just one of those “cult classic” martial arts movies that everyone especially martial artists should see.
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.
Go the extra mile and get more out your body by increasing it’s range of motion. Below are several stretch tools one of which I use personally which is the one at the bottom of this list. I highly recommend using something from this list to improve your performance!
Greetings everyone I strive to deliver stimulating content to you at least every other day. I have been preoccupied with some very important matters that had my focus temporarily divided, but now I am back with an article that I am sure you will find interesting. In the video below I share a principle that is an important part of FLEX FIST BOXING (Conventional Boxing is also a big part of what I teach). After watching this video please refer to the links below for more info on Shu Ha Ri Do FLEX FIST BOXING.
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.
Greetings everyone in this video I share with you useful techniques for gaining control of an opponent and taking him or her down. Do not just practice this once or twice. To simply become discipline at it you must have the mind-set to do it 1000 times. To become a master at any technique you must have the mindset to do it 10,000 times. When you have that many repetitions under your belt, you no longer have to think, things just become automatic.
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.
