BE INSPIRED BY THE CHARACTER OF THE EAGLE. PHASE 4 OF SHU HA RI DO. THERE IS MUCH TO IMITATE

THE EAGLE

In Shu Ha Ri Do there are 7 phases. The fourth phase deals with animalistic obstervations and principles. I teach students animalistic fighting forms that I created in 1998. One of them is the bird, more specifically the eagle. The focus however, is not to simply fight with movements like an eagle, but to copy the useful character and nature of the eagle. In this post I outline some of the character traits.

THE ARE FEARLESS CREATURES

When confronted eagles will never surrender no matter the circumstances.

How courageous are you when faced with opponents?

EAGLES HAVE VISION

Eagle is 4 to 5 times stronger than humans they can detect a prey nearly 2 miles away!

Are you short sighted with your life? What type of vision do you have?

THE ARE PRECISE

Nothing compares to the precision of we witness seeing an eagle snatch a fish out of the water!

How precise are you with your life, work, family, etc.? Are you sloppy?

EAGLES LOVE USING STORMS TO THEIR ADVANTAGE

Though most animals hide in fear during storms. Eagles actually get excited during storms using the winds to lift them high above it.

Do you see storms of life as breaking you down, destroying you? Or do you see them as opportunities for growth?

HIGH FLIERS

Eagles fly at high altitudes that no other birds can reach.

Do you think all that you are good for is to be a bottom dweller?

FAMILY PLANNING

Male and female eagles assume powerful roles during family planning. Once the female eagle chooses a high place in the cliffs out of reach of predators the male goes to work building the nest. Making several trips back and forth the male layers the surrounding areas of the cliff with thorns, grass, twigs, more thorns, grass and twigs. He continues this process until the surrounding area is impenetrable by predators and the nest is layer on the outside with thorns, and the inside with grass.

Phase 4 Animalistic Techniques The Fury of The Birds

THE STORY OF HOW I CREATED SHU HA RI DO, AND MY MOTIVATION FOR WRITING AND TEACHING

STREET READY TECHNIQUES, COM #4

 

As many of you are aware, in Shu Ha Ri Do I teach movements that I call COMS or Combat Maneuvers. Each movement is a street ready combination that I put together in 1998. Before the black belt phases there are 7 core phases of Shu Ha Ri Do. All phases except phase 3 the grappling phase, contain Combat Maneuvers. In this video you will see a demonstration of COM #4.

A DAY OF BOXING AND FOOT WORK.

If you are familiar with Shu Ha Ri Do then you are already aware that along with everything else I also teach conventional boxing. In phase one students are introduced to the 10 count of “Flex Fist Boxing” and the 10 count of conventional boxing. In phase two along with a host of other techniques students go deeper into the science of conventional boxing. Things like timing, footwork, head movement, and much more. In this video you will see mitt work with students going through different punch counts, and a little bit of our footwork drills at the end.

SHU HA RI DO COMBAT MANEUVERS (COMS) STREET READY TECHNIQUES

These techniques are called COMS or Combat Maneuvers. These are to be practiced repetitively. However, know this the idea is not that you will hit an opponent with every shot. That is not practical. Landing 2 or 3 shots is a more reasonable expectation. You train repetitively on all techniques for muscle memory. As a result when the opportunity presents itself your hands or feet hit by themselves…

WHAT WOULD YOU DO AGAINST AN OPPONENT THIS BIG???

Hello everyone, here is some food for thought for you. In this video you will see a matches of David versus Goliath (Hong-Min Choi)! Image result for el titan de laI have to tell you that in a tournament situation this kind of size is an unfair advantage. That does not meant that there has not been cases where “David” has won. However, if both had an equal amount of training and preparation, and have the same four limbs for weapons, there is one thing left for you to understand. SIZE IS ALSO A WEAPON, and we are not talking about a basic difference like 3 or 4 inches.

Just look at the video and you will see what I am saying here. In my view I would not get into a ring with someone as big as the person in the video. Not out of fear but out of realism. In the streets it would be a completely different situation, there are many things I could do from a combat perspective to equalize the situation. However, in a ring there are rules.
