Simply put, Shisei Ryu teaches the fundamentals of Aikido, Judo and Karate-do. We are a traditional martial arts school with a 5th generation lineage from the original founders of the ancient arts. Our schools embody the practical applications of these arts. We are not a sports martial art or MMA style school. Rather we hold to traditiional methods and founding bushido principles.
We draw technique from three foundational arts:
AIKIDO - WATER
Study how water flows in a valley stream, smoothly and freely between the rocks. Also learn from holy books and wise people. Everything - even mountains, rivers, plants and trees - should be your teacher.
-- Morihei Ueshiba
JUDO - EARTH
The ultimate result of breaking balance is to throw the oppponet and hold him, and, thus getting him under control, to make the state of unbalance permanent and conclusive. In short, breaking balance, throwing and holding from the technical system of Judo.
KARATE-DO - FIRE
You may train for a long, long time, but if you mearly move your hands and feet and jump up and down, like a puppet, learning Karate is not very much different from learning to dance. You will have never reached the heart of the matter; you will have failed to grasp the quintecence of Karate-do.
