Griswold's Christian Self-Defense

Teaching Kempo & Tai Chi


Kiyojute Ryu Kempo Bugei

Kiyojute Ryu is a total martial art system composed of six general principles. They are Aikiho, the harmonious principle; Juho, the yielding principle; Goho, the strength principle; Bukiho, weapons principle; Nimpo, patience principle; and Shuho, taking principle. These six principles form the art of Shogei Toitsu Kempo, which is the foundation art of Kiyojute Ryu.

Classes are held twice a week, and each student may attend two 2-hour classes per week, which count for hours towards testing. A student must have a minimum of 50 class hours in order to test. Also, a student may test for kyu ranks only once every 6 months.

For students attending Kempo classes, there is no additional charge for Tai Chi.
