Our Curriculum

KANO RYU JIU-JITSU is the original name of the martial art created by Japanese Professor Jigoro Kano in the year 1882.

In the early years of developing the grappling sport known today as Judo, Professor Jigoro Kano made it clear that his primary purpose for creating 'Judo' was to protect and preserve the rich legacy of feudal-era Japanese Jiu-Jitsu as practiced by the Samurai warrior clan.

Professor Kano borrowed principles, techniques, and strategies from eleven different Jiu-Jitsu systems that he personally studied. Professor also included striking techniques from Okinawan karate-do which he acquired from the great Gichin Funakoski-the father of Shotokan Karate.

In 1925, the Japanese government began to phase out and ban the practice of samurai-era fighting arts. The government wanted to produce much safer forms of Bujutsu (i.e. military arts/warrior arts") that could be taught to the masses and in Japan's public school system. Hence, the name Kano Ryu Jiu-Jitsu was slowly changed to Judo during this time period.

Our Judo curriculum resurrects concepts from pre-world war II Kano Ryu Jiu-JItsu to include; Kosen Judo and Japanese Submission Arts Wrestling. These are the exact same no-holds-barred ground-fighting tactics taught to the pioneers of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu between 1906 and 1925.
Tang Soo Do and Taekwondo are two expressions of Korean 'karate'. The Korean phrase, 'Tang Soo Do', when translated to English means, "way of the Tang hand", meaning Chinese hand.

Tang SooDo incorporates fighting principles drawn from northern Chinese NeiJia (Nei-ga- Ryu), and Japanese Shotokan karate. Tang Soo Do is a complete martial art incorporating punching, kicking, elbow and knee strikes, throws, and traditional budo weaponry.

Traditional Tang Soo Do is not a sport. In the early 1940s, Tang Soo Do was the official hand-to-hand fighting method taught to the Republic of Korea Marine Corps and elite police units.

Tae Kwon Do, on the other hand, is a modern sport version of the old school Tang Soo Do with rules that prohibit lethal strikes to vital points of the body, foot-sweeps, throws, joint-locks and other techniques considered far too dangerous for sport competition.

Jeet Kune Do is a modern martial art philosophy and fighting system incorporating elements and principles drawn from 26 different styles, namely; Chinese Wushu (Wing Chun, Choi Li Fut, Northern Praying Mantis, Southern Praying Mantis, Choy Li Fut, Eagle Claw Tai Chi Chuan-Wu Style Family, Baqua-zhang, Hsing-I, Bak-Hoo Pai, White Crane) Bak Fu Pai (White Tiger), Ng Ga Kuen (The system in five families), Ny Ga Ying (The set of five animals), Bak Mei Pai (White Eyebrow), Fencing, Judo, JuJitsu, Western Boxing, Greco-Roman Wrestling, and Filipino combatives as introduced by Daniel Inosanto.

JEET KUNE DO, also known as Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do - was created by the late Hollywood film icon, Bruce Lee. Jeet Kune Do, when translated from Cantonese to English means, "the way of intercepting fists".
Wushu San Shou – also known as San Da (散打), Duan Shou (断手) is the full-contact ring sport version of Chinese military Wushu. San Shou (also called Sanda) is a modern martial art indigenous to China. It is both a no-holds-barred military fighting system and a full contact ring sport.

Sanshou contains all the elements of western boxing, Chinese Kung Fu, kickboxing, body throws, foot-sweeps and wrestling.

To the untrained eye, Sanshou appears much like Kickboxing or Muay Thai, but it is far more comprehensive in that it permits a complete repertoire of rapid successive punches without breaking up the fighters, arm trapping (which is prohibited in boxing), elbow strikes and knee strikes are legal, judo style foot-sweeps, take-downs, throws (Shuai Jiao) and other Chinese grappling techniques such as Chin Na are legal in San Shou.

This is the perfect fighting system for grapplers interested in crossing over into the Mixed Martial Arts game.
AIKIBUDO is a Japanese term used to describe traditional budo or warrior arts rooted in the principles of "Aiki". The word, "ai" means harmony; "ki" means life force or vital life force energy, "bu" means "martial or military" and "do" meaning "Way" or "Path".

The art of Shiseikai Aikibudo incorporates concepts drawn from the koryu bujutsu of Daito Ryu Aiki-jujutsu with stylistic influences that include, but are not limited to;

- Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto Ryu (sword-based fighting concepts) - Iaido -Yagyu Shingan-ryu - Kito Ryu Jujitsu - Hakko Ryu Jujitsu - Nippon Kempo Jujitsu (full-contact kumite) - Wado Ryu Karate - Shorinji Kempo - Aikido - Traditional Kodokan Judo
Combat Jūdō – is a refreshing approach towards Judo that incorporates a wide range of multi-cultural expressions of pre-1945 Kano Ryu Jiu-Jitsu. The emphasis in Combat Judo focuses on practical self-defense rather than sport.

Our method Combat Judo is heavily influenced with concepts drawn from Modern Aikibudo, Nihon JuJitsu, Russian Sambo, Krav Maga, Hapkido, Filipino and Indonesian fighting arts of Silat-Kali-Dumog, the brutal fighting art of Gidigbo & Ijekadi from West Africa.
The umbrella term for the combat fighting arts of the Yoruba tribe of Western Nigeria and Benin is, “Gidigbo”.

Gidigbo is certainly one the most comprehensive martial art systems known to mankind on the grounds that within fighting range whether stand up kicking, punching, extreme close quarters head-butts, knees, elbows, foot-sweeps, body throws, leg reaps and then ground fighting --- there are over 70 sub-disciplines or areas of focused training within each of the various ranges of fighting.

Gidibgo shares many similarities with the Filipino martial arts and other African fighting systems such as Dembe, Ishakafa, Mandinka Kilijawaaro, and Kukawa – in that fighting with machetes, shorter edged weapons and stick fighting is commonplace as well. In Nigerian and Benin villages you can find sport Gidigbo matches organized around important social functions, although regional tournaments just for the sake of sport are also common throughout the year. The bout typically begins with both opponents facing off, hands crossed (Enter the Dragon style) and quickly closes to all-out grappling – with elbows and head-butts added for good measure. When one of the wrestlers is thrown or otherwise knocked to the ground the match is concluded. Its all in good fun.
