Excellence in the Martial Arts

Our main objective at Seigido Ryu is self-defense. Students of Seigido Ryu will become well rounded in both skill and knowledge, being able to adapt effectively to many different situations. Kyoshi DeAngelo trained in a number of different Martial Arts styles which naturally had an influence in the development of Seigido Ryu.

Seigido Ryu is a unique blend of traditional Karate with a kick-boxing influence and traditional Ju-Jitsu with an Aikido influence. Both Seigido Ryu Karate and Ju-Jitsu are easily interchangeable. In defending oneself the student can instantly change or blend their skills to adapt to their situation.

Tempered by Righteous Character

Seigido is a Japanese word meaning "Way of Righteousness." Our principles and philosophy reflect Christian-Judeo ethics. According to the Bible, the way of righteousness is through faith in Jesus the Christ, which is God's plan for man's salvation.

Seigido Ryu helps students develop a code of ethics or moral foundation which can guide them through life. This will also keep them from misusing or abusing the knowledge and skill they attain through training in Seigido Ryu. We also emphasize and reinforce righteous character by teaching practical principles to live by which are found in the Bible.

"Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord of Hosts." - Zechariah 4:6
