Techniques and Training Methods of Shur-Ryu

Shuri-ryu also has several short self-defense forms and combinations. These include: 26-Ippons (ippon kumite kata), which are performed to develop power and mental focus; 10-Taezus (taezu naru waza) which are performed to develop speed and fluidity; 30-Kihons (kihon kumite kata) which are performed to develop form and fighting technique; and 8-Sente exercises.

Additional training exercises including form sparring (kata kumite), focus stance sparring (kime dachi kumite), free exercise (jiju undo), and free sparring (jiju kumite).

Ju-Jutsu Sarasota

Posted by shuhadmin in Ju-Jutsu sarasota , Ju-Jutsu dojo sarasota , Ju-Jutsu classes sarasota

Ju-Jutsu means the “science and skill of softness.” It is a general term for a wide range of hand-to-hand combat arts that emphasizes entering, trapping, joint locking, grappling, throwing, choking, immobilizing, pressure points and vital point striking methods. The fighting style was designed centuries ago for disarmed warriors to defend themselves against single or multiple attackers.

The only real defense against a hostile world is a balanced body, mind, and spirit. A strong mind in a strong body, with a spirit of justice will do the most good for you and society.

Karatedo Sarasota

Posted by shuhadmin in karatedo sarasota , Karate sarasota , Karate dojo sarasota , karate classes sarasota

The word Karatedo has three-parts: “kara,” means empty; “te,” means hand; and “do,” means way (empty hand way). The suffix “do” signifies a mental and physical discipline; Karatedo is a physical exercise designed to achieve a mental state. Karatedo is composed of blocking, striking, kicking, sweeping, joint locking, takedowns, footwork and weapons techniques which results in not only the physical ability to defend oneself, but also the development of the mind and spirit.
