TokuiDo Martial Arts Science

Country: United States

Founder: Zachory Lee Cook (Shodai)

Translation: The Way of Free Choice

Year of Creation: 2000

Goals: To formalize the study of defense philosophy by further incorporating scientific studies into the martial arts and martial sciences, and to introduce the concepts, theory and philosophy of defense, and the techniques, methods, applications and approaches necessary provide a defense system that is effective for every practitioner individually.

Description: TokuiDo Martial Arts Science (MARSCI) formalizes defense studies by heavily incorporating scientific studies relevant to defense. While Anatomy, Physiology, Psychology, and Sociology are very basic studies incorporated; other studies can be incorporated as needed to reinforce the philosophy of an art or style (Criminal Justice, Criminology, Intelligence, Communications, Geology, Geography, Topography, Botany, etc). Because TokuiDo is especially concerned with the study of the development of martial arts and martial sciences; it incorporates study of training and instructional design. In this, practitioners ''break down'' a system to it's bare elements (philosophy, history, individual techniques, individual movements, etc) and learn to ''build their own''. TokuiDo MARSCI is the study of incorporation of scientific knowledge into the process of studying the martial arts, the martial sciences, and the development, similarities, differences and transitions between the two.

Background: TokuiDo can incorporate any style or system, or all styles and systems. While TokuiDo is accepted by some organizations to be a Ninjutsu system (because of it's versatility); it can more accurately be described as a liberal philosophy.
