Seigido Ryu Breaking Seminar
Students do practice and compete in various tournaments and competitions. But for us, competitions are not the end goal. The end goal is personal safety, being able to defend oneself and their loved ones from physical danger.
Students will learn how to deal with confrontation which can come in many forms. It could be a physical attack, someone pushing you around, getting in your face and yelling, verbally putting you down or verbal intimidation. Students at Seigido Ryu are not coddled they are nurtured. They are helped and Enabled to deal with such forms of attacks and circumstances.
We believe in building a strong traditional foundation. In order to be effective in self-defense one must be proficient and be able to adapt to the situation at hand. A strong foundation will give them stability in mind and body. This will give them an advantage in strength and in giving a swifter and measured response.
Our school have always been a safe and controlled environment. In the beginning, the student will spend the first 10-15 classes on the side with an assistant instructor who will teach them their basics. There they will develop a strong foundation before learning the technical techniques necessary to be a good martial artist.
It is necessary for any civilized society to have a moral compass. Our moral compass is based on Jesus the Christ. Our principles and philosophy reflect Christian-Judeo ethics. This will keep them from misusing the knowledge and skill they attain as well as stabilize and strengthen their character.
Students are taught to show strength, then to reason. They learn control, patience and to show kindness. They learn to use their martial skill only when necessary and in a manner that is consistent with the law. So it is important to develop both character and physical skills. Any good Martial Arts school will have similar views.
In addition to regular classes, we offer seminars, demonstrations, birthday parties,
personal safety courses for ladies.

All are welcome to visit during class hours.
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.
