Welcome to the KSR Jujitsu website.
This website is designed to introduce martial artists or non practitioners, to the art of Kyu Shin Ryu. Kyu Shin Ryu, in its totality means "The art of governing body, mind, and spirit." It is the desire of the Kyu Shin Ryu practioner to grow and develop in all three of these areas and have them function as one.
Our growth comes from diligent and continued practice of the art, then giving the art away to others. We believe that as we share the art with others, we grow physically, spiritually and morally. We can only keep what we have by giving it away.
Kyu Shin Ryu is an extensive and eclectic martial art. It combines elements of Karate, Aikijujitsu, Jujitsu, Judo, Aikido, Gung Fu, Kyusho Jitsu and Kali. Kyu Shin Ryu has its own syllabus and curriculum having integrated these arts. To honor the work of those who have taught us so much we do not just cannibalize these arts and Frankenstein them together. In addition to the already exhaustive syllabus we teach each of these arts in their purity.
The Arts of War are not the only requirement for a warrior.
These traits are what we seek in our training. Martial prowess is simply a side benefit.
Within the site you will find our history and development and philosophical beliefs, as well as practical things like rank requirements and self defense techniques.
As extensive as some of these pages might seem to be, however helpful you might find some of the videos and information here, there is no substitute for time spent on the mat. So, please enjoy the introduction to Kyu Shin Ryu, we hope that you find the information here helpful, but there is always more to learn.
