The concepts on which Tetsudo is based were developed by Maha Ustad Mastambo Tetsura. Having spent virtually his entire life devoted to the study of the Art Forms (both Martial and Non-Martial) Master Tetsura was in a unique position to evaluate the virtues and inadequacies of Martial art systems. Master Tetsura reasoned that in teaching a ‘Style’ an instructor would invariably teach their own way of doing things which might not necessarily be beneficial for the student. With this concept in mind, Tetsura set about creating an Art based on body mechanics and movements, with the flexibility to be adapted to suit the needs of the individual. In 1960, Master Tetsura met 9 year old Balbinder Singh Dhaliwal in a Library in Wolverhampton. Noticing that he was reading a book on the Martial Arts, Tetsura questioned the boy about his interest in the subject, and invited Dhaliwal to become his student When Tetsura died in 1966, Dhaliwal had been his sole student and soon found the urge to share the incredible knowledge that he had been given, starting his first club in Wolverhampton in 1967. However, it was not until 1994 that Guru Ustad Dhaliwal decided on the name Tetsudo to refer to the Artform, The Way of Tetsura.

We enjoyed another fantastic 3D party yesterday evening in Derby.

We watched an excellent blackbelt demonstration covering the breadth and diversity of the Art Form. We witnessed the powerful and dynamic nature of the human body and also the ability to be soft and sublime. The diversity of the human body was shown further with a demonstration of using a stick as a weapon (extension of the body) with various defensive responses and disarms.

After the demonstration Guru BS Dhaliwal and Master Trevor Brindley made two important announcements:

1) Ustad Martin Price was awarded the Instructor of the Year prize

2) Ustad Neal Shegog was promoted to the rank of 4th Degree blackbelt

I am sure you would all like to congratulate Martin and Neal on their very well deserved achievements.
