Kansen Ryu a self defense system taught at A. Kolychkine Judo Foundation is a Cuban system of “ Defensa Personal Integral”.
It is comprised of a rigorous selection showcasing techniques from various martial arts such as Judo, Aikido, Karate Do and Jiu-Jitsu, and as of the early nineties, it has also incorporated new techniques from Kickboxing, Western Boxing and Taekwondo in the pursuit of martial perfection, excellence and above all efficiency, shedding away pageantry or other elements that represent choreographed role-playing, elements far detached from real life-threatening combat situations.
Emerging in the seventies but formalized in 1982, this system was established by strictly Cuban authorities. Its methodology, principles, concepts, fundamentals and analytical content are rightfully and lawfully protected in the Centro de Derecho de Autor and in the Registro de la Propiedad Intelectual de España, registered with its corresponding copyrights in Cuba and Spain. True to the word Integral in its nomenclature, it adapts to the different situations that may occur dynamically in a real life-combat scenario, viz. default, alert, emergency, danger, high risk, or hostile scenarios. It assesses the risk and probability of its available techniques’ outcomes, allowing its practitioner to apply only those moves in response to a threat that are proportional and rational according to each individual scenario instead of one-size-fits-all approaches, which are impractical today. Florida resident Jose Cuspinera Navarro C.
