FOOTWORK FOR THE JAB, 3 WAYS TO EFFECTIVELY MOVE FORWARD WITH THE JAB…

 

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.

SHU HA RI DO STUDENT “SHEN SISOOK” TAKES 1ST PLACE IN ARIZONA BAS I KYOKUSHIN TOURNAMENT

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.

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

BRUCE LEE

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”.

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.

Kung fu is one of the styles that influenced the creation of Shu Ha Ri Do. It is a big part of what I teach, and why I wear a Kung Fu uniform. To clarify, the reason you may see my students wear traditions gi’s  is because my transition in the martial arts went from the hard styles of Karate to the soft styles of Kung Fu, to the creation of Shu Ha Ri Do. With that being said enjoy the video.
