About Some of the Martial Arts We Offer in Riverside, CA

Shinsho Ryu

Shinsho is a comprehensive American martial art, a strategic system emphasizing self-defense and inspirational personal growth. From a traditional perspective, Shinsho is a school of Kempo and Jujitsu.


Kempo has to be one of the most difficult systems to define. It can be translated as “law of the fist”, or the “followed path of the controlled hand”


Jujitsu can be translated as the “gentle art” or “flexible skill” or even the “essences of the gentleness and flexibility in a combat art”. It is a grappling art whose origins have been lost in antiquity. 

Tai Chi

The literal translation for the term Tai Chi Ch’uan Fa is “supreme ultimate boxing method”. It is a Taoist system of health maintenance and self-defense that can be accurately traced to the Chen village in the Ho-nan province of China. Written records of this kind of boxing date back to the 17th century A.D., but there is speculation that the roots grow much deeper.
