Bruce Daniel Calkins

10th Degree Black Belt, Grand Master, The Golden Dragon Dojo of Fusho-Satori-Ryu Karate-Do. Soke Calkins has been in the Martial Arts for over 38 years. Soke began his training in 1968 with Sifu Lei Tai Soong of the Toledo Kung-Fu Academy in Toledo, Ohio.

Due to the extensive traveling of his family Soke studied in several styles over the years. Soke Calkins's Step Father Played Professional Baseball and this moved him around a lot.

Soke stayed with Sifu Soong until 1970 and reached the rank of Red Sash in Shaolin Kung-Fu and the 5 animal styles. Soke's favorites were the Crane, Snake, Monkey, Mantis and Monkey. This training was full time and even at the young age Soke was dedicated to his training. With the support of his parents, Soke trained sometimes 5-6 days a week with Sifu Soong.

          Later Soke did other training in Kung-Fu adding to this training In his early teens he began training in Qi-Gong.  With Soke's feelings about hurting people he began training in Iron Shirt Qi-Gung. A mystical style that leaves the body able to receive the hardest blows with little or no effect. This way Soke could take the hits and not get angry from Pain. It kept his Mind clear to talk his way out instead of having to hurt someone. This style of defense was important to Soke. With Iron shirt he could get hit and not have to hit back. Later he learned other ways of doing the same thing.

          In 1976 Soke was in Ft. Lauderdale, Fl. and trained under Master instructor Tamio Kamura at the "Way of Life" Dojo. This Dojo Trained in Aikido. A new way to not hurt. Soke was impressed by the use of the others movements to defend instead of hard contact defense. Soke Trained here until 1978 when he was awarded his 1st degree black in this style.

          In November of 1978 Soke found himself in Garland Tx. Here he met Master David Frost of the Black Star Ninjitsu Academy. This was a live in academy and Soke lived and trained at the academy for until August of 1979. Soke's Mother was taken from this world when He was very young. Soke was raised by his Grandmother who also supported his training and helped him live and reach for his dream.

          Soke Calkins trained on his own for a few years passing on his training to all who were interested. In 1980 Soke formed the style of Golden Dragon Karate. A Blend of his training over the years. Soke taugh in several other Dojos learning their style and adding it to his own.

          In 1994 Soke Calkins met Sensei David Mason in a style called Yami-Umi-Do. Yami-Umi-Do was formed by Shihan Mark Wagner of Rochester, NY and Sensei Mason was one of his student Instructors. Soke was impressed with Sensei Mason's teaching style and ideals. Sensei Mason invited Then "Sensei" Calkins to teach with him in N. Chili, Ny. Sensei Mason also held a Black Belt in Isshin-ryu Karate under the teaching of Joe Jennings.

          Working with one of the instructors of Yami-Umi-Do, Soke also trained in the style of Ryu-Kai a blended style called "Style of Styles." Soke achieved a 2nd Degree Black Belt in this system.

          In 1995 Soke met and taught with Sensei Robert Koch of Warrior Self Defense. A Kenpo Instructor in the I.K.K.A. system of Ed Parker's Kenpo Karate. Sensei Koch was impressed with Soke's ability to work with people and specially Children. Soke became Sensei Koch's Head Youth Instructor and helped open and Manage Sensei Kochs New School in Alden, NY. In all of my years of training I would have to say that... "My time spent with Sensei Robert Koch was the best Martial Arts Experience of my life." "Robert Koch is one of the best trained Martial Artist I have ever had the honor of training with and I feel his traning increased my ability and speed 100%."

    In the Spring of 2001 Soke had a slip and fall that broke his back at L5-S1. This put Soke out of training for a short while. Soke tried to get back to training in Spring of 2003. During this time he studied Manuals and other systems and worked on creating his own system. blending all of his training and ideas his finally found what he was looking for.

 In the summer of 2004 Soke after all of the years found the name for what he was going to teach and formed. "Fusho-Satori-Ryu" "The Art Of Unborn Enlightenment". Looking back on the teachings of Master Bankei (a ZEN Monk). Showning the "Action without Action" ideals. Soke has been teaching the ways of Mushin (no Thought) for over 25 years and this is just what he had been talking about. 

    Master Bankei's word for the ultimate reality is the Unborn (in japanese fusho) and those who are illumined or enlightened (have experienced what in ZEN is called satori), like the Taoist Sages, manifest pure spontaneity. Bankei describes to an acquaintance who was a devotee of the Martial Arts what it would be like to fight after satori: "When without thinking and without acting deliberately, you manifest the Unborn, you won't have any fixed form. When you are without fixed form, no opponent will exist for you in the whole land. Not holding on to anything, not relying one-sidedly on anything, there is no 'you' and 'no enemy'. Whatever comes you just respond, with no traces left behind."

          Master Bankei teaches us that to not react but to respond is the ultimate action of inaction. To change with every situation and not be bound to a fixed system. (Much like the ways in Bruce Lee's Jeet-Kune-Do)

          Master Bankei says: "The Sage has no ego and so does not deliberate. What the Sage does is to respond with Absolute Sponianeity to the conditions in the world."

          For over 38 years Soke Calkins has worked to bring the Best of the Martial Arts World to you.  And He Will never Stop !!!

          on August 18th 2004 master Instructor Bruce D. Calkins was honored by the Sokeship council of the "Eagle Federation" as "Shodai Soke"  Founder of Fusho-Satori-Ryu.

But thought out his training Grand Master clery always felt that something was missing and seeing them master teaching they own newly form fighting style he knew he had to develop his own with a different.

So he created Gee-Ryu Karate-do the word Gee comes from his pride and joy his wife Genitha that have always supported his karate training.

Gee-Ryu means “To elevate the whole man . “Gee Ryu karate do is a heard and soft style with street fighting moves and street self defense. In 2009 Grand Master Clery after years of training, researching, thought it was time to come out in the opening and interdicting to the world Gee-Ryu Karate DO but first I had to be registered but it was so expensive to register a new style and found this association the I.C.M.A.U.A that registered him as the founder of his style Gee-Ryu karate do along  with a 10th dan black belt.

Barry Cook

Master Barry Cook began his Martial Arts career in 1979 at the age of 9 when he started training in Judo. After 3 years he left Judo (aged 12) and joined Ju-Jitsu. 4 years later he left Ju-Jitsu (aged 16) and began Shotokan Karate and then in 1990 Master Cook left Karate (aged 20) and joined the Martial Art that would dominate his future, Taekwondo. Then in 2003 (aged 33) after 13 years in Taekwondo, Master Cook was strongly advised to opened a school because of his knowledge base and Martial Arts history. In 2004 Master Cook began studying Hapkido, which he continued until 2009. Master Cook agreed to open a school, but believed he could offer more than just a stand alone Martial Arts style, so he began formulating and developing a Martial Arts method of his own utilising his knowledge and experience and his achievements of attaining 6 Black Belts in 6 different systems.


Two years later in 2005, the foundations were set and the development of his own Martial Arts system was ready. Over the next two years, his mission was to finalise and prepare a top level, systematic, scientific and dynamic Martial Art that everyone could practice and resulted in the official formation and opening of the Cheongye Kwan Institute in 2007. Classes began in a local Church Hall in Longton, Preston with a mere 5 students, and has now grown to become an exceptional global Martial Art. Master Cook has had training in many Martial Arts over his 33 years of Martial-Education. He has also received many commendations & accolades from the world over, including the USA, UK and Korea.


However, his proudest accomplishment is the Cheongye Kwan curriculum and system which embodies all his lifetime of training, experience and knowledge. Master Cook now looks forward to producing the future generations of Black Belts and Masters who will carry the Cheongye Kwan torch forwards into the future. From a sporting perspective, Master Cook was a Gold and Silver Medallist and is a former Great Britain National Taekwondo Team member, competing at both National and International levels. Master Cook is also the former Southern Technical Synchron and Individual Freestyle Champion, which gained him a National Ranking of 3rd overall in Great Britain, and after retiring, Master Cook became a National Technical Team head coach and and now holds the position of Senior Technical Advisor for a Taekwondo Governing Body.


In 2012 after running and developing the Cheongye Kwan for 7 years, Master Cook decided to approach a global Martial Arts registry to have the Cheongye Kwan officially recorded and bound as an internationally practiced and established system of Martial Art. Master Cook currently holds the grade of Black Belt 7th Dan and is a published author and Martial Arts Hall of Fame Inductee, as well as holding a PhD Degree in Martial Arts Science. Master Cook is part of a high level International Masters and Grandmasters forum, and trains each year developing with many of Hollywood’s outstanding Martial Arts Actors, Directors and Stunt Choreographers in the United States, and in 2012, Master Cook was the recipient of an outstanding Commendation award from the President of the  Kukkiwon in South Korea and also received a ultimate commendation of Lifetime Achievement Award in the Martial Arts.


Master Cook is also a Martial Actor and Stuntman and often visits Los Angeles and Hollywood to work with some of the biggest names in the Martial Arts.
