Visiting Japan – After shock and lessons

I have been visiting Japan since two weeks after the M9.0 earthquake. My wife and two daughters were already in Nagoya, Japan when the mass earthquake assaulted Northern Japan, followed by the record-breaking Tsunami. Fortunately my family members were all safe and not affected by this natural disaster. I am experiencing the gift of being in the present, and keeping away from my mind going into the scenarios of what could have happened especially to my family.

As I contemplate, listen to the stories of the affected areas and people, I have been learning many lessons. The Japanese warrior spirit, honesty, honor and unity to begin the recovery from this natural tragedy and disaster are amazing to observe. It is a humble experience for me to be here during this time. I am touched in a very deep level that I will never forget. There are many important lessons that are taught to everyone in the whole world. Now is the time for all of us to change our focus from the problem to the solution, from blaming to taking responsibility, and from complaints to appreciation.

I’m seeing and being a witness of the 21 concepts I put together in Seibukan Jujutsu to create and understand our life journey and become successful in anything we choose to do: Initiative, Speed, Determination, Acceptance, Flow, Adaptability, Patience, Strength, Commitment, Flexibility, Spirit, Sensitivity, Presence, Power, Emptiness, Intuition, Observation, Wisdom, Intention, Creativity, and more than anything else, Healing.

It doesn’t matter how dark it looks, the light will always prevail if we focus on it. Right now I’m experiencing the highest level of gratitude and compassion that I have ever felt in my life. On behalf of all the Seibukan Jujutsu Dojos, members and families, I send and extend my condolences and warm wishes to the people, friends and families in the affected areas of Japan.

Much love and appreciation,
Julio Toribio – Seibukan Jujutsu Kancho

Taikai 2010 Recap

martial art seibukan jujutsu taikai 2010

On June 5 and 6, we had such a powerful annual gathering, Taikai 2010. Thank you to all the Seibukan Warriors in and outside of the US who participated, as well as 14 Dojo-chos represented their schools at the event; Seibukan Jujutsu of Honbu Dojo (headquarters), Wasilla, Oregon, Mendocino, Solano, San Francisco, Berkeley, Martinez, Seaside, Santa Cruz, Los Angeles, Puerto Rico, Switzerland, and Hungary. It was great seeing students who I have not seen for a long time and who live away from the Headquarters, as well as the warriors from all over California.

I enjoyed teaching the morning sessions of the two days, covering the themes of Fire, Water, Earth, Wind and the Void , along with the concepts and techniques of each theme. It always inspires me to teach in this special event, and the best of me comes out to teach and share my skills, knowledge and experience.

In the afternoon sessions, we had 6 certified instructors teaching and sharing their skills and knowledge. These exceptional teachers were; Chris Haney Renshi of Honbu Dojo, Som Pourfarzaneh  Shihan of SJO San Francisco, Jose Miguel Rosas – Kyoshi of SJO Santa Cruz, Jason Ortega Shihan of SJO Oregon, Bear Roberts Shihan of SJO Solano, and William Candelario Renshi of SJO Los Angeles. Each instructor presented a class in such a unique way, and all participants enjoyed and appreciated their generous teachings.

On Saturday, we had a special demonstration for the level of Nanadan (seventh degree black-belt) by Jason Ortega Shihan. He demonstrated his years of everyday training, experiences in teaching, and what an outstanding martial artist he has become. The skills and techniques are precise, and level of understanding was deep. He presented a model demonstration of Nanadan level for others to follow.

martial-art-seibukan-jujutsu-kancho-caseyWe are celebrating the 17th Anniversary of Seibukan Jujutsu on June 5th and 6th. I would like to personally invite you to this eventful gathering. When Seibukan Jujutsu was born on June 1, 1993 I asked for the strength to guide students and myself for the next 21 years to raise the art with honesty, integrity and discipline.
The first 7 years of “awareness” were designed to train students, the second 7 years of “assessment” were dedicated to raise instructors, and we are now half-way the third year of the third 7 year-phase of “action” which is committed to the Dojo development and global expansion of Seibukan Jujutsu.
We will be meeting in Honbu Dojo. You will receive the two-day intensive training in a progressive and uplifting atmosphere with a supportive and positive group. Classes will be taught by myself and other certified instructors that I am very proud of. On top of that, each day will conclude with a high-rank demonstration.
I will sincerely honor and appreciate the presence of Dojo-cho, Uchideshi, and all the members of Seibukan Jujutsu at this memorable celebration.
Please register with this registration form at your earliest convenience to reserve your spot as well as to make this event go smoothly.
Thank you, and let’s keep going!
