Martial Arts Syllabus
Our comprehensive syllabus gives you real skills and strategies that work regardless of your age or physical ability. Kiaido Ryu has a traditional martial arts base and also incorporates the most effective skills and techniques from many self defence arts both ancient and modern.
The skills taught at every level of our progressive syllabus, from White Belt to the Advanced levels of Black Belt, cover all types and ranges of attack and defence and include: modern Street Self Defence techniques, Traditional Karate Kata, (empty hand and weapons forms) and their applications.
The curriculum incorporates, striking, kicking, grappling, joint-locking, throws and takedowns, and groundfighting, from Karate, Boxing, Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Judo, Small Circle Jiu Jitsu, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ), and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA).
The effectiveness of all the above skills are enhanced by extensive training in the Six levels of Kata application (Bunkai), and basic and advanced Pressure Point knowledge (Kyusho Jitsu and Tuite Jitsu). This aspect of our art utilizes the same pressure points and meridians used in Traditional Chinese Medicine; Acupressure and Acupuncture.
A key point here is that the Pressure Point knowledge only enhances your self defence skills, it does not replace them. You must first have good fighting skills and knowledge that will work for you in real situations.
Students are also taught a complete martial arts weapons syllabus which includes: Bo (staff), Jo, Tonfa, Nunchaku, Sai, Katana (sword), and the Philippine Stick-fighting arts of Modern Arnis and Arnis Mati.
In addition to physical Self Defence techniques, you will learn and develop: nonviolent conflict resolution skills, strategies and tactics, fear management skills, psychological self defence, confidence, self-discipline and self-esteem.

This philosophy, combined with our active involvement in the international martial arts community, means that we are always in touch with the latest developments and innovations.
