“To me, the extraordinary aspect of martial arts lies in its simplicity.
The easy way is also the right way, and martial art is nothing at all special;
the closer to the true way of martial arts, the less wastage of expression there is.”
― Bruce Lee

There are wide variety of training methods that improve the reflection and coordination of body and mind, and the best coaches and instructors who train both the mind and the body.  They aim is to develop a mankind into a complete individual with acceptance and embrace. When we become deeply acquainted with fear, frustration or anxiety, martial arts will be the best choice to uphold a person along with our personal etiquette or fitness. Here we learn from experiences and by discovering our own inner selves.

If you choose to undertake training in martial arts purely for reasons of self-defense, or for other reasons, the reward will be your self-discovery, emotional intelligence, problem-solving, pattern recognition, threat perception and consciousness. Moreover as we all know “One of the greatest gifts of martial arts is that they guide us to the new level of spirituality”

Isshinryu Style:

Isshin-Ryu (一心流 Isshin-ryū?) is a style of Okinawan karate founded by Tatsuo Shimabuku (島袋 龍夫) and named by him on 15 January 1956. Isshin-Ryū karate is largely a synthesis of Shorin-ryū karate, Gojū-ryū karate, and kobudō. The name means, literally, "one heart way". As of 1989 there were 336 branches of Isshin-ryū throughout the world (as recorded by the IWKA), most of which are concentrated in the United States.

  • YOI: Bringing left leg to the right leg and make ‘v’ stance and is known as attention position.
  • Standing and bowing is known as Taichi Rei(comprises of 4 movements denoting Readiness,concentration,Respect and confidence)
  • Sitting Meditation posture is known as Zarei (one knees the hands on the knee crossed feet, knees part, spine straight and looks straight) student bow to the master, the senseis, the seniors and each other in this posture at the beginning and end of the class.
  • All the martial arts have their own cry or”kiai”, often quite terrifying, which is apparently the expression of the sudden release of energy. A romantic interpretation of the kiai has made it famous in the west under the name of “cry that kills”. In actual fact, the kiai is a “setting up of wave length” between two contestants. He who has the greatest amount of subtle energy (ki) makes it known by the kiai.

So the kiai must come from the stomach that is the centre of true energy; if it comes only from the throat, it is ineffective; in this case, nothing more than a guttural sound is emitted. In Fact, the kiai is the art or science of using ki or energy. To known the power of sound is to make energy vibrate, in other words to make life itself vibrate.

The kiai in a way projects in mental, physical and psychical energy.
