About Us

Ryusui-Ryu is a school of martial arts founded in July 2006 by Sensei Dave Waters. Sensei Waters has derived the school after many years of study in different martial arts including karate, aikido, Iaido, judo, kyudo and wing chun. It a subtle blend of traditional karate and aikido with contributions from other martial arts techniques amalgamated together to form one style. It is completely non-competitive with an emphasis on relaxed, flowing movements.


The aikido, taught by Ueshiba Sensei, and the karate, which originated from mainly Shito-ryu and Goju-ryu styles, have been modified and blended into a unique mix to form Ryusui-Ryu.


The name means “like flowing water” and this is exactly the emphasis placed on the application of the styles techniques, strikes and covers.
