Jieitai Ryu Seicho Jutsu Self Defense Extraordinaire
On Saturday March 1st,1997 Seicho Jutsu
Grandmaster Daniel Verkerke, Instructors and Junior Instructors
assembled together to demonstrate a variety of self defense
scenarios which demonstrate the art of Seicho Jutsu.
The event was hosted by Grandmaster Daniel Verkerke at the Jieitai Ryu Seicho Jutsu Hombu Dojo in Cambridge, Ontario. It was the joining of Martial Artists to unite and contribute to show their explosive techniques, chokes, throws, take downs and finishing techniques. This had the students utilize directional movements to many different attacks, where they subdued their opponent through the use of submissions, immobilizations, trapping, to take down locks, thus showing the most realistic and effective ways of ending an attack. Some were no-nonsense straight to the point explosive techniques, while other's used a variety of techniques to finish an opponent off.
This event was meant to help all Seicho Jutsu students learn the skill and knowledge of the most realistic and effective use of defensive directional movement against any attack.
The Self Defense Extraordinaire was video taped and will be used as a learning experience for lower belts, beginning students and the public to inform and educate on the concepts and techniques of Seicho Jutsu.
