Suikido Movement Arts

Welcome to this page about the diverse and multi-facetted movement practices of Suikido.

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

Suikido works with universal movement principles and qualities as they relate to Man-in-Motion.

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, unpredictable movements are all essential components of Suikido.

There are two essential movement disciplines within Suikido, an original flow art: Suikido Dosei Jutsu 水気道 動静 – and a fused martial art: Suikido Bujutsu 水気道 武術


Suikido Flow Art

Suikido Dosei Jutsu 水気動静

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

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

Suikido Flow Art has its basis in movement 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 healthy people; from sedentary office workers to elite and professional athletes.

Suikido Martial Art

Suikido Bujutsu 水気道 武術

Energy-in-motion • Synergy • Skill Based
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 power; 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 Martial Art 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.

The aim of our programs is to improve the strength and elasticity of muscles, tendons, and joints; refine neuro-muscular communication and interconnectivity; enhance movement kinetics, technique, and whole-body coordination; improve restitution and overall vitality; and to promote inner stability and develop the mental capacity of the practitioner/athlete.

True relaxation is inclusive, whole, total. Relaxation does not mean sloppiness or inattentiveness, it refers to a dynamic interaction between a myriad of complementary qualities and energies.

Relaxedness is an advanced symphony between action and being, movement and stillness, discipline and freedom. Relaxedness does not shine forth from lethargy, indolence, or self-absorbed comfortability. True relaxation reveals itself through tireless dedication, blood, sweat, and tears.

Here relaxation is real, deep, mature, vital, potent.
