Style: Hoshin Roshi Ryu

Hoshin Roshi RyuHoshin roshi ryu combines mental and physical self-protection and uses techniques drawn from ninjutsu and jujutsu.  Founder Glenn Morris was an organizational psychologist interested in Daoist philosophy and esoteric writings. Courses on reiki, shamanism, massage, and meditation, are taught alongside simple yet effective self-defense techniques. Physical combat is only used as a last resort and showing kindness and consideration to others is key. Student training focuses on practicing techniques and learning how to apply them in real-life situations, rather than memorizing individual “kata” (set forms).
