Martial Arts Syllabus

Self Defence

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. 

Kiaido Ryu has an open-minded philosophy of growth and continuous improvement in every area of our curriculum. 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. Students of Kiaido Ryu learn one of the most comprehensive and progressive martial arts systems in the world. The routines in this element of our art also promote whole-brain learning.

Students have the opportunity to learn more on this aspect in classes, camps and special seminars

Internal ArtsInternal Arts

Kiaido Ryu Martial Arts dynamic martial arts training also blends centering, breathing, and meditation techniques, to assure that you gain optimum levels of skill and health and fitness, to attain the best physical, mental, and emotional shape of your life. 

The internal aspect of Kiaido Ryu Martial Arts teaches time-honored Pressure Points and Ki Energy techniques for health and well-being. This includes breathing, Centering, progressive relaxation, Meditation, and Qigong (energy boosting exercises)

This holistic approach to health and well-being contains many practical techniques for energy restoration, pain relief, optimum health, and enhances healing of yourself and others. Students have the opportunity to learn many of these techniques in classes, camps and seminars.

Warriors Wisdom - Self Mastery

Warriors Wisdom

Students learn to identify and develop their unique skills and talents, to improve their concentration, self-discipline  and focus, to eliminate fears and limitations from their lives, which also builds their self-esteem. 

Kiaido Ryu instructors know that their role is not to create followers but to develop leaders, to help students really tap into their personal power, to give them the courage and skills to pursue their goals with creative vision and passion.
