Shuyokan Ryu Martial Arts

At the Shuyokan Ryu Martial Arts Center aspects of a number of styles are incorporated into our techniques, concentrating primarily on the prinicples of balance and timing, and maintaining your own while interfering with those of the attacker. Principles and techniques from the arts of Yoshinkan Aikido, Aikijutsu, Taiho Jutsu, Kodokan Judo, Shotokan Karate Jutsu, and Shuyokan Ryu Aiki Lua are used either as taught within their own styles, or combined as the self-defense situation dictates.


Here is a document showing the lineage of Lua and Aikijutsu (PDF).


A Student's Personal Testimony:

The following is from a student who currently trains with Sensei Dye. The incident was reported to the local police.

"I have been training with Sensei Dye for about 4 or 5 semesters learning general self-defense. During the Summer of 2010, I was walking down a street when a man came up from behind me and attacked me. As the man began yelling and getting more aggressive, I began to hear Sensei Dye's voice in my head telling me to keep my distance. I was lucky that it did not go any further, but I know if it had proceeded to get worse I would have been able to defend myself thanks to the training I took. If it had not been for the classes I have taken with Sensei Dye I might not have reacted the right way. Thank you Sensei"
