Many martial art systems have originated in various countries all over the world. We are proud to present
to Canada an art which was founded and originated in our very own Country.

Canada's multiculturalism provided a great wealth of information, influence and inspiration to develop a
most effective, efficient and complete martial arts system which covers all aspects of self defense and
personal development , including physical condition, mental control and spiritual awareness.

Because of our diversity and tremendous variations which can be utilized in everyday life, it will not only
aid the individual to attain the skills necessary to build the foundation from which to develop the highest
personal level of proficiency and excellence possible, but also will be a great benefit to Law enforcement,
security and educational systems throughout the country.

                               Taking the first Step
You have become a student of the Jiko Ryu and you can now begin your journey to the depths
of mind, body and spirit.

Martial Arts provides to be a major turning point in ones outlook and attitude towards self
development. As it immediately becomes quite obvious for those who have entered that this
school has an equal emphasis on physical, mental and spiritual development of oneself.

The proper execution of technical skills, the understanding of body mechanics and mathematics
of strategies is in no doubt essential. This will allow the student to achieve a basic degree of
physical experience and expertise, thus building a foundation from which one can expand upon.
But yet, mastery of oneself requires more than physical development; it requires the individuals
total development of mind and spirit.

Through the training, the student is constantly exposed to a wide spectrum of new learning
experiences on a physical, philosophical as well as spiritual level. Resulting in gain of greater
knowledge, wisdom and higher understanding of the significance of oneself and all that’s

Martial Arts training which is the vehicle used to take you from one point of understanding to the
next is limitless, which continuously progresses and expands, allowing the student to express
oneself according to their own individual talents, knowledge, physical and creative abilities.
Providing the student with an excellent foundation for mental, emotional and spiritual growth and
expansion into new dimensions of knowledge and deeper understanding of the true quest for
self development.

Enrollment in this school requires, desire, dedication, commitment and an open mind. Our path
has been well traveled over the last Thirty years. Even though this makes the path easier to
follow, many stumble, fall or get side tracked. We wish all the best of luck and are always here
for those with questions.
It’s never too late when your self development is at stake.

                  Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What does Jiko Ryu mean?
A. Jiko is Japanese for “oneself” and Ryu means “Artistic School” Each school of Seicho Jutsu has it’s
   own name. So the name of this school of Seicho Jutsu is the “School of oneself”

Q. Will I have to compete in tournaments?
A. Yes & No
  We do not compete in a lot of tournaments. Everyone is encouraged to compete in atleast one, but no
   one is forced to enter.
  On the other hand, Any student who wishes to recieve a Black Belt must have competed in a few
  tournaments for the experience.

Q. How long will it take me to get my black belt?
A. Each student can learn only as much as he/she is ready to learn. On average though, with dedication
   and hard work you can obtain your black belt within 5 years.

Q. Once I get my black belt am I finished learning Martial Arts?
A. No. Martial Arts is a lifetime study. Once you have learned
   the basics then this is where the “Art” in “Martial Arts” comes into play and the art becomes an
   extension of your inner self and expression.

Q. What do you mean when you say “Mind, Body and Spirit”?
A. As you train in the Martial Arts your physical body will become stronger and you will learn to use
  your body in new ways. In order to do this you must start to think on a different level than you do now
  so you grow mentally. As you build your physical and mental abilities many of the barriers to personal
  growth will disappear allowing you to grow as a person. In the higher levels of Seicho Jutsu Philosophy
  is a big part of the training. Spirituality does not mean “religion” it means the ability for your inner
  self to grow and develop, to become a better person.

Q. What types of things will I learn at the Canadian Martial Arts Center?
A. We believe that to be a well rounded Martial artist you must be familiar with all aspects of the Martial
Arts. Throughout your study you will learn:
   Stand up (Kicks and Strikes)
   Groundfighting (grappling)
   Joint /Arm locks
   Pressure Points
   Body Movement
   Counters and Reversals

Basic Anatomy, body mechanics, cause and effect and philosopy are also part of our curriculum.
