    We Teach... Kitsune Ryu Bujitsu

    THE FOX STYLE OF FIGHTING ARTS

    Our system is shaped by a wide variety of traditional martial styles:

    TAE KWON DO – From Korea, translated as “Way of the Hand and Foot” or “Way of Punching and Kicking”. We utilize kicking fundamentals, sparring concepts, and a wide array of Olympic coordination and kicking drills to produce martial artists with superb kicking, balance, and foot coordination.

    JUJITSU, JUDO, AIKIDO – The unarmed combat arts of the Japanese Samurai teach adaptability of technique as the source of victory. Our study of the “soft” techniques spans over 4 styles of Jujitsu, along with Judo and Aikido, and includes joint manipulations, throws, strangulations, grappling, and escapes from various grabs. The ability to fall and roll stems from these arts. The level of “Ju” and “Aiki” practiced in our system is unsurpassed.

    ESKRIMA, KALI, ARNIS, SILAT – The various weapons and empty hand styles of the Philippines, Indonesia, and Malaysia give us the training models for non-stop movement. The use of single baton (machete, sword), double baton, single knife, short staff, and flexible weapons (towel, handkerchief), spans over 9 different styles of these arts.

    Kitsune Ryu Bujitsu is NOT a “sampler platter” or “intro” to these styles, as many other schools are, but a highly refined, completely integrated study of ALL these styles.

    Shihan Todd Labrie

    Shihan Labrie has been practicing martial arts since 1977, and was recently recognized as a 7th degree black belt holding a Kyoshi (teaching grade). His 3+ decades of experience includes many styles that use both forms and fighting, which gives a holistic perspective to martial art practice. The practice of striking, grappling, and weapons fighting has taught him an extremely broad range of techniques that have been woven into a comprehensive curriculum that teaches principles and concepts from every known genre of martial study. Shihan Labrie has studied many styles including Shotokan Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Boxing, Ken Ju Ryu Kenpo-Jujitsu, Zen Budo Ryu Jujutsu, Danzan Ryu Jujitsu, Nihon Jujutsu, Judo, Yoshinkan Aikido, Modern Arnis, Inosanto Method Kali, Inayan Serrada Eskrima, Inayan Sinawali Eskrima, Inayan Kadena De Mano, Inayan Decuerdas Eskrima and Inayan Larga Mano Eskrima

    Spanning 35 years, Shihan Labrie’s experience has culminated in what is now called Kitsune Ryu Bujitsu, or “Fox Style of Fighting Arts.” Shihan Labrie possesses a unique ability to explain complex ideas in the simplest way possible so that student progress reaches exponential rates. In addition to being a master of several styles of martial art, he is a gifted and dedicated instructor of adults and youth alike, with great success among special needs students. Shihan specializes in teaching High Functioning Autistic and Asperger’s candidates, using a simple and direct approach that is unparalleled in the martial arts community.

    Shihan Labrie has also created paramilitary programs for use in specific applications/scenarios under the acronym H.A.N.D.S. (Heightened Application Neuromuscular Defense System). These programs are intense studies into “contact weapons” (impact and edged weapons including bats, clubs, knives, machetes), used to quickly prepare soldiers and civilians for possible encounters.
