What is KaiSenDo or KaiSunDo

Its origins date back to 1997, but it was in the 80s, when in Cuba, a similar system introduced by Master Ikeda, this was practiced family style Yoshimón called Ryu. In Spain in the decade, appeared a Karate from the Kyokushinkai line, called called Ashihara Karate Master KANCHO, under the direction of Maestro José Romero Cortina was primarily developed in the Valencian Community (Spain), which I had the honor receiving some instructions from the art, contributing to my knowledge of Judo and Jiu Jitsu, but by 1969, the Karate I practiced, I was a Karate Jutsu, based on self-defense, where as Judo techniques are included and Ju Jutsu, then under the direction of the Master of Aikido Tomás Sánchez, student of Master Tamura, I went into the path of Aikido, to refine those techniques as important where joint control with Kaisendo drew upon more as a martial art. The system practiced in Cuba called Yoshimon karate, which relied primarily on the field of Judo and Jiu-Jitsu, while Kaisendo, technical decisions are based on 80% within the field of Karate Jutsu, Ashihara System but always finishing techniques within the field of Ju Jutsu, Aikido or if I apply in operational policing.

The Personal Defense Integral Kaisendo (SIAK), is not a martial art itself, but if it is a training system with a scientific and educational base, which thrives on Combat Arts, forming a defense system with hands, feet , head and knees without the participation of technical means and equipment, against different types of attacks in various physical and psychological scenarios. Kaisendo etymologically means road or path of continuous improvement;? Describes it as the Chinese ideograms words DO KAI SEN

The system Kaisendo Martial Arts (SIAK) arises from the need to integrate the most effective combat arts techniques in a single system of self-defense on the basis of physical and technical principles of learning and no gimmicks or tricks that commonly taught in dojos, or in the various courses or self defense seminars.

Its technical basis is based on the Karate Jutsu, named for its direct relationship with self-defense and not sport system, the Judo or Karate, therefore Sites tournaments are not open competitive basis, although it shows or exhibits. However, we have a competitive rules, as there is in Jiu Jitsu, to give solutions to those martial artists who want to put on trial learned in the Dojo, and verify its effectiveness.

Our System of Martial Arts Kaisendo (SIAK) keeps the line open above, although we understand successful integrate our Craft sport, considering as such that this individual form can insert in various competitions Karate, Judo or Ju jutsu, since that learning Kaisendo teach these martial arts as a base, although its main intersection is the Self.

Recently in the City of Valencia (in November 2003), in the Hall of Fame of Martial Arts, was given a worldwide recognition to the Integral and Police Self Defense Kaisendo through ISMA (International School of Martial Arts), leaving inscribed in the golden book of ISMA.

The Kaisendo , is a martial art system, which interrelates a more techniques selected for their implementation of systematic and pedagogical way martial arts such as Karate, applying the techniques of striking foot, hand, elbow, and knee, Judo, projection techniques and immobilization , and the Ju-Jutsu, Aikido, the time of action of the levers, pressure points and keys to the joints and other struggles of combat, as Boxing for their elusive waist, their circular fist attacks, the Kick Boxing, Kenpo jitsu, for his continuous fluid concept, its chains techniques and in essence to give a conclusive answer to a given attack.

His pedagogical essence, is based on the knowledge of "Principles and Techniques" , so that the practitioner of this art, can think, interioirizar, and create effective combinations before a ataque.De This avoids the need to alunmno learned hundreds of different techniques and attacks, before a determined attack to give an immediate response.

In principle, men tend to defend against an attack, but in our private art not only learns to defend, but to attack at the right time.

What is Kaisendo?

The martial art system, Kaisendo is a system of physical and mental training gear melee oriented exclusively to the systematic and technical development of the Integrated Defence Staff, not to mention the Act, with respect to the person to defend their physical integrity.

A long-term look for moral and spiritual development of man in his environment social.A Unlike other fighting systems, not based on the teaching of keys or tricks, but in general engineering principles, which allow the practitioner to think and create and avoid mechanical teaching techniques.

This art mainly applied free hand and leg techniques, projections of Judo and Ju jutsu attacks to vital points of the human cuerppo, keys to the joints, dislocations and detention, and the sutemis minor or technical and sacrifice.

How does it compare with other schools in the Kaisendo Ju jitsu in a tournament?

The first thing to note is that the Kaisendo is not a competitive sport, although some of their separate disciplines could compete like any other combat art, but his otra.está filosofiía is designed as an Art of Defense Personal., like other martial arts, but its effectiveness lies not only in the system, its methodology, but in the physical and mental capabilities artist marcial.Los students progress in their own capacity, evaluated periodically to see the status of physical , performance, general knowledge of art, and of course your fitness, the promotional trailer is within the limits of most students.

What is the underlying philosophy of the Kaisendo?

In our opinion, there is not a martial art other than the superiority lies in the man who dominates. We have experienced that many times in the gym away techniques of objective reality with which a student faces in combat and can not apply are taught, as are techniques that are only good in the imagination of those who have invented, to dazzle the uninitiated and so thus monetize student.

We are all familiar with many cases of apparently good black belts in the dojo, and moderately good or mediocre in the street fight, which does not know, does not feel secure in their art, in a given attack, or in compliance with a mission against a hostile element, or in defense of the physical integrity of another person own. On the other hand, to be skilled and effective in an Art of Fighting, is required to have strong will, sacrifice, adequate physical and psychological preparation, in addition to many years of training in the gym.

Many teachers teach a variety of self-defense techniques, but it should be the student who, with his training, physical and psychological skills, refine techniques that best fit the profile of his opponent, allowing an extremely effective and custom development comprehensive self defense system Kaisendo, allowing any black belt Kaisendo , an optimal result of physical aggression against any opponent in the street.

System Kaisendo , is designed as a Combat Art and a system of comprehensive Self Defense, in which the student is prepared for self-defense and is able to neutralize aggressive action in the short term, without a dowry physical qualities.

What is the discipline of a Kaisendoka?

Generally believed that martial artists are highly disciplined and many think it is due to the strict rules of the Dojo s, although it is also true that some schools are more militaristic than others, the purpose of such discipline is to ensure a healthy environment and todos.Por insurance training through adherence to this code of conduct that ensures a proper respect for the nature of the training and the means conducive to learning, you can make great strides and progress along the road to improvement and self-esteem is such personal.Tal is the framework of the philosophy of Kaisendo, anyone can desarrrollar a high degree of personal control that comes from the joy of propiuo training and assessment of the resulltados.

The student has to strengthen the will to go to class, train hard, and keep always open to the teachings of his Maestro.A view produced practical progress in their personal lives, both inside and outside the dojo, students will change because they want and not to have to.

These are types of lifestyle change that can become permanent, because they work, are simple and gradualmente.La acquire most of us have experienced failure that occurs when, with the desire to improve, we intend to fulfill a of these well-intentioned and extensive list of such decisions acts resoluciones.Aunque our will, the task becomes impossible and we feel even more miserable than at first, for not being able to achieve the success of our work.

The interpretation of the discipline, for Kaisendoka does not require a rigid or unnatural close to emotions, desires or experiencia.Más also is the repository where these elements are concentrated in balance, with a harmonious and integrated physical structure and understood moderation, which, prooverá practitioner himself a genuine Denfensa Personal.Aunque one will feel inspired by esoteric philosophies, in traditional Buddhist monks, the ZEN and its intense and prolonged study to discover and illuminate truth such influence does not necessarily imply that one has to choose the ascetic life of a monk.

The Kaisendokas not trained to go out and attack those who seem seriously wrong in the world, nor to wait passively for the disaster. The kaisendoka lives immersed in the study of how to control and use your body, your thoughts and process emotions, by what appears to be self-defense against the attacks of their important adversarios.Más even for Kaisendokasis getting along with activity of living, not rooted in the problems, but the solutions thereof.

What is Kaisendoka beginner's mind?

One of the most valuable concepts of Eastern philosophy is crystallized by the Japanese word "nyuanshin". Ttraducida comumunmente by beginner's mind, relates to receptive and open attitude to learning, waiting and accepting the teachings during training . "Mind receptive , "it may be more appropriate, that the literal" Beginner Mind "because as many Masters ensure new students often have preconceived notions that need to dissipate before learning.

The martial art system Kaisendo ; arises from the need to integrate the most effective combat arts techniques in a single system of self-defense on the basis of physical and technical principles of learning and no gimmicks or tricks that commonly, taught in dojos, or various self-defense courses. All martial arts and combat, constitute in itself a defense, but their scope and purpose, often do not address the many and various forms of ataque.A example, we can say that a Judoka can apply techniques of his art to self-defense, but not familiar with the striking techniques of Karate, Kick Boxing, Boxing , or control keys Aikido . A boxer does not learn boxing for self-defense, your goal is to win the combat, earn money bag, win a title; addition, competition regulations and standards established for this purpose, maim largely using effective techniques of martial arts, this implies that upon aggression not have an arsenal of technical conocimien5tos for adequate and efficient response.

Its technical basis is based on the Karate Jutsu , named for its direct relationship with self-defense and not sport system, the Judo or Karate, is why other countries are not open tournaments competitive nature, although it shows or exhibiciones. No However, we are working in a competitive rules, as there is in Jiu Jitsu, to give outputs aquellpos martial artists who want to put on trial what they learned in the dojo, and for effectiveness.

Our system of martial art, keeps the line open above, though successful integrate our Art We understand the sport, considering as such that this can individually insert them into the various competicione of Karate, Judo and Ju jutsu, since learning the Kaisendo teach these martial arts as a base, if also the main junction is the Self.

We also believe that the martial artist, is formed in the struggle, in the confrontation with other artists, marciales.Sí not done in this way and to a knowledgeable opponent of an art, how to demonstrate the knowledge acquired?.

WHAT ARE YOUR TECHNICAL AND THEORETICAL PRINCIPLES?

This art is based on technical, physical, psychological, ethical and moral principles of the martial arts. The main contribution is the integration of this system in its scientific and pedagogical bases and with a strong routine.

With this system of Martial Arts or Personal defense, ends a bit with the old idea that "Every teacher has his methods," and his vision of Martial Arts or Self Defense, thereby causing deformation of art as such, but also the man himself, because usually courses on self defense or martial arts are taught, which prevails in the trade and profit on the technical and pedagogical interest rate, which desfrauda students, with a corresponding loss of prestige and confidence in the Martial Art and not one called Master who has taught classes.

What we are sure of is, to achieve a good self defense system involving other Martial, such as the Arts is necessary Karate, Judo, Ju Jitsu and Aikido.
