Chutoku Ryu Goshin-Jutsu is a modern self-defense systembased on traditional Okinawan and Japanese martial arts that include karate, kobudo (weapons), throwing, and grappling. Studying Goshin-Jutsu adds an extra element of reality to a studentís training, providing added confidence to handle dangerous real life situations.
The Chutoku Ryu Goshin-Jutsu system taught at Savior Martial Arts® is handed down from the Yokota Family Samurai arts from feudal Okinawa and Japan. It is designed for combat effectiveness. There are no needless flourishes or artistic niceties in Goshin-Jutsu. This art is meant to be applied to the situations a person would meet on the street or in the home, not in tournament or sport karate situations.
With a link to the past and an eye to the future, Chutoku Ryu Goshin-Jutsu is a cutting edge art for modern times. Modern students must be prepared for modern issues. Because of their focus on violent responses, traditional self-defense systems often open students up to civil and criminal liability because they employ traditional techniques that courts today regard as excessive force. Today it is not uncommon for trained martial artists to be successfully sued for using excessive force in a self-defense scenario.
Chutoku Ryu Goshin-Jutsu is designed to limit a studentís personal liability by giving him or her a full range of techniques to choose from. These techniques range from simple stuns and evading skills to pain compliance techniques, strikes, takedowns, and final neutralization techniques. This tactical control system offers a trained individual of any size tools to effectively neutralize an assailant or overly aggressive person in 3-10 seconds, without doing him any serious or lasting harm. As an attorney, Soke Scott Gilbert has designed this curriculum with the intension of limiting a studentís personal liability while maintaining highly effective techniques designed for a dangerous world.
NOTE: The Chutoku Ryu Goshin-Jutsu curriculum is specifically designed for the well trained martial artist. Students must first attain a Black Belt in Chutoku Ryu Karate before beginning to study this art.
