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 effective skills  from many self defence arts both ancient and modern.

The skills taught at every level of our progressive syllabus, from White Belt to advanced levels of Black Belt, cover all types and ranges of attack and defence and include: Street Self Defence, Traditional Karate Kata, and their practical applications.
Our curriculum incorporates, striking, kicking, grappling, joint-locking, throws, 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 Bunkai, and Kyusho Jitsu (pressure points). This aspect of our art utilizes the same pressure points and meridians used in Traditional Chinese Medicine; Acupressure/Acupuncture. 
Please note: 'Pressure Point knowledge only enhances your self defence skills, it does not replace them.' 'You must first have good fighting skills that will work for you in real situations.'

Students are also taught a complete martial arts weapons syllabus including: Bo (staff), Jo, Tonfa, Nunchaku, Sai, Katana, and the stick-fighting arts of Modern Arnis and Arnis Mati. 

In addition to physical Self Defence skills, you'll learn and develop: nonviolent conflict resolution 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 approach combined with our active involvement in the international martial arts community, means that we're 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. 

Students also have the opportunity for supplementary learning at camps and special seminars

Internal ArtsInternal Arts

Our dynamic martial arts training also blends centering, breathing, and meditation techniques, that greatly enhance 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 energy practices to optimize health and well-being. This includes breathing, Centering, progressive relaxation, Meditation, and Qigong (energy-boosting exercises)

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

Our Kiaido Ryu Martial Arts program and Qigong exercises develop your internal strength and energy levels. This has health benefits that compliment every other sport or activity that you do.

Warriors Wisdom - Self Mastery

Warriors Wisdom

The Warriors Wisdom element of our art teaches Mind/Body/Spirit, self mastery principles to optimizing your personal growth and development.

It gives students the knowledge and skills to apply their martial arts knowledge for personal growth in all areas of their lives.

Students learn how to identify and fully develop their unique talents, to improve concentration, self-discipline and focus, to eliminate fears and limitations from their lives, and to build self-esteem. 

All our instructors know that their role is not to create followers but to develop leaders. Their objective is to help students really tap into their personal power, give them the courage and skills to pursue their goals with creativity, vision, and passion.
Our intent is to empower students with the tools and confidence to achieve their potential.
