Calasanz Goju Ryu

The Beauty of stances under the Calasanz system ..I choose to master style of Goju Ryu, mostly because of it’s beautiful techniques and ancient yet modern application of distinguishing yet overlaying soft and hard techniques. What is actual application of soft and hard techniques?

For both combat and health, Goju Ryu requires that the body achieve a state of physical and mental balance based on the distinction between hard and soft, fast and slow, heavy and light, erect and angled – in short, Yin and Yang; subtle yet strong distinction between these extremes is what creates the enormous power. The science behind this power is quite simply – the ability to produce flexible, fluid, constant power by way of training the body to issue sureness of movement in a variety of cadences, angles, and speeds. And it is through form practice what is difficult to master, but highly practical, this high skill is achieved.

While mastering forms on daily base, such training develops the explosive power of flexible strength. It is best revealed when the body achieves the relaxed, controlled, yet natural ability to move efficiently between the forces of soft and hard – Yin and Yang. Mind learns a logical use of self-consciousness and feelings in inner self. It creates a real understanding inside and outside own physical body thus the universe.
