Suikido Movement Arts

The original interdisciplinary practices of Suikido combines authentic source martial, yogic, taoist, and natural movement arts with 21st century movement science and physical training protocols.

Lying, creeping, crawling, sitting, standing, moving, jumping, running, leaping, limber, slow, rapid, explosive, flowing, hard, soft, infolding, unfolding, pulling, pushing, expansive, contractive, lengthening, centring, elongating, rolling, coiling, spiralling, rotating, wavy, pulsating, circular, natural, intuitive movements are all essential components of Suikido.

There are two essential movement disciplines within Suikido, an original flow art: SUIKIDO DOUSEI JUTSU 水気道 動静 and a fused martial art: SUIKIDO BUJUTSU 水気道 武術

Suikido Flow Art

Suikido Dousei Jutsu 水気動静

Martial • Yogic • Taoist • Meditative
Artistic • Athletic • Instinctive • Therapeutic

SUIKIDO DOUSEI JUTSU 水気道 動静 is an original interdisciplinary movement practice.

The Kanji Dousei literally means Movement & Stillness and Jutsu translates as technique, method, skill, and/or Art.

Suikido Flow Art has its basis in movement fluidity, suppleness, interconnectivity, and whole-body coordination; and in the development of inner flow, naturalness, and freedom-of-motion.

The practice unfolds through a multitude of movement sequences that progressively advance in form, range, and complexity. The sequences are performed in a flow wherein one movement naturally connects and leads to the next.

Suikido Flow Art is multifaceted and encompasses a versatile range of movement qualities; martial, yogic, limber, natural, energetic, athletic, meditative, artistic, instinctual, tissue therapeutic.

The practice acts as a foundation for all other forms of movement; be it running, ball games, strength training, martial arts, combative sports, athletics, gymnastics, classical ballet, contemporary dance, tai chi, yoga, etc.

Suikido Flow Art addresses all; from beginners to advanced, experts, and adepts; from health challenged individuals to vibrantly wholesome people; from sedentary office workers to elite and professional athletes.

Suikido Martial Art

Suikido Bujutsu 水気道 武術

Body Kinetics • Synergy • Fusion
Fight Technology • Bujutsu Spirit

SUIKIDO BUJUTSU 水気道 武術  is an innovative, non-style specific, non-style limited, fused Martial Art.

Bujutsu 武術 refers to Martial Arts for real life and battlefield situations, whereas Budo 武道 denotes a process of self-refinement and a spiritual approach to Martial Arts. Suikido is both Bujutsu and Budo; hence Suikido Bujutsu is a realistic, spiritual, pragmatic warrior art.

Suikido Bujutsu has its foundation in the development of whole-body coordination, synergy, and kinetic force; movement optimization and technical refinement; defensive and combative advancement; and in the progression of the straightforward, unpredictable, instinctual.

The practice progresses through basic and technical exercises, forms, shadow boxing, heavy bag training, focus mitts, pad work, fight specific calisthenics, partner drills, structured sparring, technical sparring, and free instinctual sparring.

Suikido includes punches, strikes, elbows, kicks, knees, blocks, evasions, sweeps, take-downs, throws, joint-locks, submissions.

The practice is neither a sports oriented competitive martial art nor a traditional style with uniform, degrees, and belts. Suikido stands alone and represents an advanced, realistic, flow-based fight technology.

Suikido Bujutsu 水気道 武術 covers all levels; from beginners to advanced, blackbelts, professional martial athletes, and warrior monks.
