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.
