Shuri Te Bujutsu
Shuri Te Ju-Jutsu/Bujutsu (science and skill of softness) is a complete martial arts system emphasizing entering, trapping, striking, joint locking, throwing/takedowns, grappling, choking, immobilizing, pressure points, vital-point striking methods, weapons and internal energy development. Shuri-Te Ju-Jutsu is an eclectic martial arts system, with strong influences from the training methods and fundamentals of Shuri-Ryu Karatedo (Ridgely Abele) and Shinto-Yoshin-Kai Ju-Jutsu (Dr.Steven Roensch). Many of the principles, techniques and theories were cultivated from several traditional martial arts systems from Okinawa, Japan, China and Indonesia.
Shuri-Te Ju-Jutsu is an officially recognized style of Ju-Jutsu by the United States Ju-Jitsu Federation which is the (NGB) National Governing Body for Ju-Jitsu in the United States of America. The original purpose and goal for the development of Shuri-Te Ju-Jutsu was a training method to support and aid the study of the 9-moving forces within Shuri-Ryu Karate kihon (see about). Now Shuri-Te Ju-Jutsu has developed and grown beyond its original purpose into a full and complete martial arts system. Shuri-Te Ju-Jutsu is now being practiced and taught throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, and South America.
