The TTRKS - "Jutsu" ryuwa is different from that of its "Do" counterpart.
Tatsu Te Ryu Karate Jutsu is created, instructed, and structured in the manner as a semi-traditional art and is taught from a secular standpoint and utilizes the same etiquette, conduct and some of the same philosophies as found within a Japanese dojo.
While several of the technical aspects, forms, and defenses are similar to that of the "Do", Tatsu Te Ryu Karate-Jutsu utilizes its own unique curriculum including; basics, katas, physical and written requirements.
While this style does focus on developing self-discipline, personal growth, and good moral character of a student, Tatsu Te Ryu Karate-Jutsu aims to develop a students fierce warrior side as well. We focus on powerful self-defenses, ground work, and real life combat scenarios in an effort to give our students an advantage in any defensive situation. This dynamic style teaches its student to uses their skills quickly and effectively when faced with a dangerous situation.
The main goal of Tatsu Te Ryu Karate Jutsu is to give its student the confidence of knowing, that if forced to fight, if it be a matter of life or death, right or wrong, they will have the skills needed to do so.
As a reflection of the their knowledge and skills, Tatsu Te Ryu Karate-Jutsu utilizes a belt ranking system and these belts are only awarded to students who have tested in front of a qualified instructor and have proven themselves proficient in the specialized skills of the system.
