Our dojo is a unique martial arts studio in downtown Port Perry that features two floors of training space. This permanent facility also features change rooms and is one of very few martial arts studios that offer a dedicated space for martial arts training. This is the home of HBK Martial Arts.
The Flying Dragon
Hiryu means flying dragon and is pronounced Hiryu (here-you). The flying dragon reflects our mission and approach to training.
Hanshi Fred Walker retained this symbol from his early days (1959) when the dragon represented the judo club in which Walker had studied. His Sensei, Art Martel, had given him permission to carry forward this logo in any of Hanshi’s future martial art activities. It is an honour and loyalty to a past master instructor—the dragon continues to fly.
The dragon also reflects our fighting principles. It is not a real animal and, therefore, reflects the personality of the student, allowing a large degree of creativeness at the appropriate time. The dragon represents the unseen internal world of strength and power. It generates internal strength (KI) through soft breathing, which makes it flexible. A dragon’s movements are soft and circular yet strikes with impressive impact. Using soft and hard techniques the dragon grabs with its claws to pull or lock its attacker. As the dragon whips its tail for wave-like power, the student learns to throw their hips. The dragon’s ability to fight in the air or on the ground is reflected by how one learns to throw and grapple with the assailant. The illusion of the dragon is made real through the efforts of each student. Its strength and power to do good for others is wholly dependent upon the integrity of each individual.
The Samaurai Warrior
Bushido is suggestive of the code of thought and behaviour of the Samurai Warrior. Unlike what you might expect, the code is to heighten morals and emphasize one’s responsibility to family and those in authority and country. The art of laying down ones arms is the goal; not aggression.
Kai simply means association or organization.
