STREET DEFENSE TECHNIQUE #5 THE “HINGE FIST”

 

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.

WATER IS ALWAYS CORRECT! PURSUING SELF MASTERY? READ AND COMPREHEND THIS!

Greetings everyone, in my book “Harness the Power Within and Without” I cover Shu Ha Ri Do concepts for self mastery under the Kingdom of Heaven. Below is a powerful excerpt from that book. It is my hope that this article inspires you in your journey.

“FROM HARNESS THE POWER WITHIN AND WITHOUT”: In the Shu Ha Ri Do Symbol the body is represented by water. What are the attributes of water? Its calm, it’s cool. However based on the stimulus it can flow rhythmically or crash violently, water can be vaporous like steam or

FROM WATER TO ICE A FLEX FIST BOXING CONCEPT

solid like ice. Its versatile it reacts instantly, overtime it will dissolve anything its perfect. To quote the ultimate inspiration in my life Jesus said he is the living water. To quote another major inspiration in my life Bruce Lee said we should be like water, be like water indeed, when faced with any challenge

in life reacting with sound judgment should be your goal. At times the body could be spurred into action quite impulsively, like when in a verbal or physical confrontation. This is when mistakes, sometimes costly ones are made. What spurred you into action? Your mind of course, the good thing about the body’s relation to water is that it reacts to stimulus the bad thing can be just that, it reacts to a stimulus.

What type of reaction depends on the morals, ethics, values, and condition response patterns established in our minds.

We are accountable for what we do through our bodies it starts with how we think. Thinking before reacting is a big part of being wise. This is what I mean when I say “WISDOM BEFORE COMBAT”. 

In “Harness the Power Within and Without” I go into more detail about the mind and it’s influence on the body. Feel free to visit the book page on amazon to read more about “Harness the Power Within and Without”.

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

 

12 TRAITS EVERY MAN WOMAN AND CHILD SHOULD EMBRACE. THE MISSION OF SHU HA RI DO.



I am writing this article because I want everyone to have a clearer understanding of the mission of Shu Ha Ri Do. If you are a student, subscriber, or follower of this blog or the Shu Ha Ri Do youtube channel then you are already aware that I Sifu G. created Shu Ha Ri Do in 1998. Since then I have published 4 books and a magazine. The articles I publish on this blog are very helpful and thought provoking. However, I felt the need to formally say that my allegiance is to the Kingdom of Heaven, God, and his son Yeshua. However, I do not subscribe to a religious ritualistic view. I subscribe to a moral, truthful, honorable, faithful, bible based lifestyle. I call it a righteous lifestyle, a Kingdom lifestyle. Such a lifestyle that we would encourage our children to embrace. A lifestyle of helping, caring for, and protecting others. A lifestyle of leading by example. So, if you are familiar with the hundreds of articles I have written on this blog you will see this consistent theme. A theme that can be summarized with these types of words.

1.MORALITY

2.TRUTHFULNESS

3.HONOR

4.FAITHFULNESS

5.LOVE

6.WISDOM

7.RESPECTFULNESS

8.DISCIPLINE

9.SELF MASTERY

10.PEACE

11.PROTECTION

12.SAFETY

These words summarize what Shu Ha Ri Do is all about. These words outline the mission. The final words of protection and safety are vital to me. Vital because what good is love without protection, what good is morality without safety. No one should feel the least bit of guilt or hesitation about being prepared to keep safe those who are weak, at risk, or those you love. It is my hope that you are inspired by these types of attributes and find them just as valuable for children and families as I do. It is also my hope that wherever you are, you will be motivated to cultivate these attributes in your life and the lives of those you love. Until next time GODspeed everyone…

When it comes to greatness in anything, there is a thin line of separation. Finding that edge that will separate you from good to better is one thing. however, find the edge to greatness is very difficult and many don’t achieve it. In this video I appreciate George St. Pierre’s approach to finding that edge.

THE PROCESS OF BECOMING… IF SWORDS COULD SPEAK! ARE YOU LIKE A SWORD? READ AND BE ENCOURAGED!

What do you see in this picture? Looks pretty much like worthless scrap metal. So many of us can relate to feeling worthless at some point in our lives. Just another “rat” in the “race”. Or in this case just another piece of scrap metal on the pile entangled with all the other pieces. Sometimes although we know we are entangled, those entanglements become comfort zones preventing growth.

Then, as if feeling worthless at times isn’t bad enough life can heat you UP to the point that you feel like you are melting DOWN. It can seem unfair, and with how those who are “in power” show no compassion, that just may be the reality.

 



Image result for molten metal in water gif

Now, here is where things seem to get even more out of hand but it happens. Not only are we dealing with our own feelings of self worth, and life heating us up, but we actually encounter people and circumstances that strive to beat us down.

Then, just as things seem to be totally hopeless the heating and the beating stops, and life seems to “cool” down. Things seem to take shape again.

You see,  as many of you know, I like to use analogies and parables to convey concepts, and processes of life. This analogy of the “becoming of the sword” surgically illustrates what happens to us in life. However, what we “become” as a result is up to us. If we refuse to “melt down” when life “heats up”. If we refuse to stay down when people or circumstances strive to “beat” us down, we will become as razor sharp as the Katana sword. I speak from experience. Life’s processes have made me razor sharp, and continue to sharpen me daily because I always expand my knowledge and application. So, if swords could speak they would tell us a story of how they became what they are. They would tell us how worthless they once thought they were before they became a sword. They would tell us about the heating and the beating and how much it hurt, and then they would tell how they have become sharp enough to slice through any problem life had to offer.  In closing, I would like to ask each of you, who do you think the “Blacksmith” sharpening you is… GODspeed in your quest…

WISDOM FROM THE BOOK OF HAI CLUE

Greetings everyone and thanks for your visits and your comments on previous articles. I present to you another Hai Clue. This one is called simply…

 



PERMISSIBLE BUT NOT BENEFICIAL

Many call it having a “good” time,
how do you define “good“?

Is it “good” to dull the mind
through the use of drugs
and the abuse of liquor and wine?

Image result for drunkenness gif

The end result is always chaos, death, jail or prison time.

The reply?

“I’m not hurting anyone
Just simply having fun.”

Well, would you encourage your
daughter or son
To copy your “version” of fun?

Image result for drunkenness gif

Many live only to tickle the senses
and spiritual knowledge they shun.

In your quest is for spiritual growth
there’s one thing you need to see.

That sensuality
Is the opposite of
Spirituality…

“ENEMY BECOMES ALLY” A SHU HA RI DO WARRIOR WISDOM CONCEPT… LEARN AND APPLY THIS!!!

Greeting s everyone below is a powerful excerpt from my book Harness the Power Within and Without. Covering a Shu Ha Ri Do concept I call “ENEMY BECOMES ALLY” please take time to internalize this concept, it can change your life…

The first part of Enemy Becomes Ally is easily understood. In a hand to hand combat situation, redirecting or combining a physical opponent’s energy with your own, thus making him your ally because using his strength, you become twice as strong.

Image result for using an opponent's strength against them



However, another aspect of enemy becomes ally as stated in previous chapters is harnessing and channeling or redirecting the power of, circumstance, and situations. 

For example we have all heard the cliché what does not kill you makes you stronger well I have found this to be true. Circumstance, and situations, can be used in much the same way that a blacksmith uses fire and hammer to create fine swords, however, it is how we view these things that determines whether we become stronger, weaker, discouraged, encouraged, patient, impatient, and so on. To you the readers I say strive also to see the “design”(the divine guiding HAND) in your daily circumstances and situations.

Recognize that life does indeed have a pattern most see it as random, once again our control lies within ourselves, our thoughts, our feelings, our reaction, our choice. You will not be immune to pain, sorrow, grief etc. however, knowledge is power and wisdom is that same power applied. You can apply this element of the ENEMY BECOMES ALLY concept once you get through the natural process of human emotion. You will be able to see the enemies of circumstance and situation become your allies. Now that I have covered the enemy of circumstance, and situation, we now will cover the enemy of self.

Aristotle said:
“I count him
braver who overcomes his desires than him who
conquers his “physical” enemies, for the hardest victory is
the victory over self.”

Image result for bruce lee mirror gif

Well, we have all heard the other cliché of being your own worst enemy, well, this is also true. Put into practical terms there are many ways in which we are enemies to ourselves all by choice whether knowingly or unknowingly ignorance is no excuse. Some examples of ways we are our own enemy are through;

choice of friends
appetites
likes/dislikes
places you go
pass times
overall, things done that are known to be detrimental
and detrimental things done out of ignorance.

Before we examine a few of these areas I would like to remind you of the possible stimulus for choices of friends pass times etc. In the previous chapters I mentioned words like trend, fad, style, peer pressure, etc. and how these things filter down from our society through television, movies, Hollywood, etc and thus cattle prod us into a way of thinking. Some things about this pattern are beneficial but most are detrimental. Regarding choice of friends some people can look at some of their friends and see things that they know are bad habits like;

drug use or sales
drunkenness

Image result for drunk caught gif
stealing
overall bad ethics, values, morals
disloyalty
betrayal
cheating/infidelity

however, the same continue to be their close friends even. It’s insanity for them to think that some of those character flaws will not rub off on them or that they may not be caught up in some kind of problem later because of those same flaws. You simply must be honest about what is right, true, and best. You must be honest about what a righteous lifestyle looks like, and NOT to make excuses for the opposite.When you are brave enough to acknowledge character flaws when you see them, and not justify them, this is the beginning of making your “Enemy”

your “Ally”. Thanks for reading, please, subscribe, comment, or share, help me spread the wisdom I provide on this blog. Information like this is desperately needed, especially in the hearts and minds of young people.
