"The Compendium of Kumite Ryu Jujitsu"

The Compendium of Kumite Ryu Jujitsu is a uniquely concise training manual for students. It encompasses the core concepts, philosophy, and the spirit of Kumite Ryu Jujitsu.  It explains the various training sectors of the system, guiding the student while on a journey from white to black belt and beyond.  It honors the traditions of Kumite Ryu, while expanding the understanding.

Although the material is technical, students should find this book easy to read and understand.  The best way to learn the materials and techniques herein is to practice them on the mat with a qualified instructor. The novice will find The Compendium to be an excellent guide for the etiquette and manners of Kumite Ryu, especially sitting in the seiza position and proper bowing. It answers the various questions on how to care for the martial arts uniform- including a brief history of the uniform; along with the traditions and customs of maintaining it.  This handbook also answers questions sometimes never voiced or asked, or which were never fully told.

As the novice grows, the handbook will be a great resource for understanding the multitude of kicks, strikes and throws. Most of the School of Survival's striking techniques are covered. These sectors of training transform the individual into a Kumite Ryu Jujtisu practitioner.

Advanced students should also find the handbook indispensable to their training.  The Compendium is a ready reference to higher-level topics, such as the principles of the Yin and Yang, injury management, iron man body conditioning, life force energies and much more.  At the highest levels, students will learn to unify the body, mind and spirit into a new sense of awareness, enabling them to achieve the main objective of the School of Survival- controlling and dominating the aggressor.
