Tetsudo

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.

The Annual National Competition is a pivotal milestone in a student's training journey. As we prepare for the competition ahead, the Competition Committee has published on our website the list of events for this year:

http://tetsudo.org/tetsudo-national-competition-2019-guidance-for-instructors-and-participants/

This year's competition will be focused on Freestyle and will cover all aspects including Compromised Pairs Freestyle, Fusion Freestyle and Competitive Freestyle.

Whilst the focus will be on freestyle, some of the excellent events which were introduced in last year's competition will still be continued into this year.

So this year's competition will enable all students, junior and senior grades, adults and children, to take part in a variety of events throughout the day.

We are all very excited about the upcoming competition and will keep you regularly posted with announcements and updates.
