The Importance of “Explosion” In Shu Ha Ri Do Techniques

In Shu Ha Ri Do I teach students to go from zero to 60 in one beat or one count. In this video I explain this concept a little more in depth.

AN INTRO INTO FLEX FIST BOXING

In this video I provide a brief intro into the non-conventional boxing concept I created called Flex Fist Boxing. Flex Fist Boxing was designed to increase speed, and explosive power! Using my concepts I guarantee results!

I created my own version of a Mook Jung (Wing Chun Dummy) back in 1992. I trained on the dummy for several hours every day for years. During that period of time I developed my own punch block patterns. These patterns were the very beginning of my creation of Shu Ha Ri Do in 1998. These patterns are absolutely only the beginning of the 7 belt system I call Shu Ha Ri Do. A system that includes conventional boxing, full contact karate principles, muay thai, wrestling, submission, creative elements, even animalistic forms.

What is Shu Ha Ri Do?

What is Shu Ha Ri Do?

Shu Ha Ri Do is a complete martial arts system created by me Sifu G. After Spending years of training in Karate, Boxing, Kickboxing, Wing Chun, Wresting, Judo, Jeet Kune Do and other systems. I created the Shu Ha Ri Do martial arts system in June of 1998.

This all just happened it was not planned. I had no indication before it happended that I would create Shu Ha Ri Do.

I devoted hours upon hours upon hours to the study of martial arts, human anatomy, strategy and Tsun Tsu principles in “The Art of War”, The Book of Five Rings, and Bruce Lee philosophy. When I was not in a dojo I would spend at least 15 hours weekly in a library or book store absorbing information. I did these things because I constantly had questions and an unquentiable thirst for mastering combat scenarios mentally, physically, and spiritually. I visited dojos often just to cross reference what I was learning.

All of this information reached a critical mass for me in June of 1998. I simply gave birth to this “thing”, this life changing philosophy I called Shu Ha Ri Do. I structured Shu Ha Ri Do into a 7 phase system with 3 levels per phase.

Why did I choose the name Shu Ha Ri? Shu Ha Ri has a 3 part definition: The 3 stages that one takes through the martial arts, from simple imitation, to development of one’s own style and personal development in the martial arts. This is the pathway to how I created Shu Ha Ri Do. It is a pathway to self mastery mentally, physically and spiritually and thus is the pathway I teach.  Self mastery is a life long journey not a destination. As a Christian I have used the principles of Shu Ha Ri Do as a tool to master patterns of a discipline life guided by the Kingdom of Heaven.

Hello everyone, below is my strike zone philosophy. I hope this helps you in your quest to keep yourself and your family safe.

As you examine the chart keep in mind the “Center Line Principle” which highlights that most vital spots of an attacker are located along the center line of the body. These areas are the:

 eyes
 nose
 throat
 stomach
 groin

There are many other pressure points and vital areas of course, however, when attacked these are readily accessible. You will notice that included are some areas not found on the center line such as the knees, temples, &feet. The knees, and temples although not found on the center
line are vita as well. When protecting yourself against an attacker remember these three things:

 If they can’t see they can’t attack!
 If they can’t breathe they can’t attack!
 If they can’t stand they can’t!
