The Martial Arts teach us how to merge with our true nature. It is not just about punching and kicking, it's really about trusting and believing. Traditionally, TAIYO was taught from family member to family member as internal Martial Art. However, since its introduction to the west it has been taught more openly with anyone who was willing to open their hearts to it.
The essence of these teachings can be found in the core of all Martial Arts. It's origins has been found first in Tibet, then moving across the Northern Provinces of China, Japan, Laos, Thailand, Iran and westward to the United States of America. Our family currently holds this knowledge and we call it 'Taiyodo' (the way of the sun). We respect and honor all true Martial Arts because the teachings that we practice are living within each of them.
The Art of TAIYO combines physical forms (katas), flowing techniques, breath work, sacred kanji, and energy movements to harness different qualities of Chi (energy), such as fire, water, air, earth and void.
