Safety Awareness for the Family
  1. Always know where you child is at every moment.
  2. Plan your activity a head of time and preplan everything you are going to bring. Make sure your children stay in contact with you at all times.
  3. Be aware of any new area that you go to and take special note of all the details of your surroundings to be sure it is safe.
  4. Never let your children out of your sight for more than a couple of seconds.
  5. Always check with who is around you, and parents should always trust their instincts.
  6. Let your child be able to speak to you in crowded environments and have them always walk in front of you.
  7. Make your child realize that they always have to stay near you, but always put it in a non-threatening way. (ie. Say "Mommy and Daddy always like you to be close to them because we love you ")
  8. Always listen to your child if they have a "bad feeling" about somebody close by. Children tend to be more perceptive than adults about "gut feelings".
  9. Always instill confidence in your child by having and exuding confidence in yourself. Children look at what we do. Not what we say.
Have a safe school year!

Importance of Gratitude

Gratitude is just being thankful for what you have and who you are. It is an expression of loving self-appreciation for one's self.

When you apply positive intentions and actions of self-appreciation on a daily basis, your thinking will change to an improved positive view of your personal universe.
  • You will stop complaining about the weather and be glad to know that each day is a "precious blessing" that's been gifted to all to enjoy.
  • You will never see your family members as annoyances, you will see them as heavenly gifts that bring daily joy to your life.
  • Stop complaining about your expenses when at least you have employment to pay for them, and be thankful to have a place to pay your bills.
  • Stop complaining about exercises and eating right, because these actions are responsible for maintaining your precious health.
  • Whatever your personal or religious beliefs are, they will take on a newer and deeper meaning by engaging in the above actions, words, and intentions.

All The Best,
Sijo / Soke Joe Droual

Seiryoku-Ryu Shorinji Kempo-Kai

The Seiryoku-Ryu Shorinji Kempo-Kai is a very special Japanese combat system of the martial arts and consists of three (3) divisions which, when combined, form a TOTAL fighting tyle. The ryu (system) is structured upon traditional techniques of China, Okinawa, and Japan.

  • Kempo - hard-fist
  • Jujutsu - grappling
  • Kobujutsu - weapons

About the Founder:
The Founder of Sieryoku-Ryu Shorinji Kempo system is Soke Joe Droual, 10th Dan. Soke Droual is a longtime martial artist who has, for the past 40 years, been a member of Juko-Kai International and who has studied personally under Rod Sacharnoski, Dai-Soke.

Soke Droual is one of the few modern martial arts instructors to have operated a full-time dojo (school) in the Huntington, NY area. He has earned Asian recognized Juko-Kai rankings in Karate, Jujutsu, Kobujutsu (weapons) and also trained extensively in Chinese-based Kang-Nei-Chin. Soke Droual is a member of the Zen Kokusai Soke Budo/Bugei Renmei... The West's first Asian sponsored Head Foundership/Successorship Commission.

Of special interest, Joe Droual is one of a handful of selected Ki practitioners under Dr. Sacharnoski who has earned the world renowned Combat-Ki Master License. To earn the master Combat-Ki License, one must be punched and kicked full-power to the vital areas of the human body while blindfolded! Such demonstrations have been featured on more than 15 major television networks throughout the world, (to include Japan). In fact, in 2009, a world record was established on Fox Sports Science that was scientifically verified and documented and can be viewed on

The Structure of Seiryoku-Ryu KempoKai:
To earn rank in this special art, one is required to study the techniques and kata of all three divisions. To earn the rank of Shihan (master), one must achieve a Shodan grading in Kempo. Once this has been accomplished, the practitioner then begins training in Jujutsu... and lastly, in Kobujutsu (weapons).

This insures that all students are throughly indoctrinated in the use of the fist, foot, weapons, grapling, etc., which is necessary to develop a good, close-in fighter.

Training is conducted in a formal dojo atmosphere... one is expected to attend classes on a regular basis and to show the proper dedication, respect and conduct required of all traditional martial artists.

Our Invisible Heroes

We see them everyday, but do not pay attention most of the time because we become very busy with our lives. Yet, if there was an emergency, they would be the first called to help out.
  • All the volunteer fire personnel that serve our communities on Long Island and those fire personnel in New York City.
  • The police who patrol and help keep our streets safe.
  • All of the doctors, nurses, EMT's and other health professionals that help keep us well and healthy.
  • The volunteer soldier that daily puts his life on the line to keep our country free.
  • Can you think of anyone else?
Blessings, prosperity and many complements to all of you!

All the best!

The Making of a Lifetime Champion (Jason's Story)

Jason started at around 4 years of age, smaller than the rest of his class and on the thin side. When he started taking Ju-Jutsu classes, he was not the quickest in the class, but reserved and shy. However, he continued with the classes.

Jason continues studying Ju-Jutsu through his elementary school years and I, as his teacher, gradually watched him change for the better. The student that was once shy and reserved became confident and assertive.

He is now consistently maintaining excellent grades in high school as well as pursuing tennis (nationally ranked), ping pong and music.

His Mom and Dad also actively play tennis with him and are a source of love and encouragement. Jason's Mom and Dad also train with me in the art of Ju-Jutsu. If you ask them they will say that Jason's martial arts training had a lot to do with his successes. I also happen to know that he has great parents.

In my eyes as a Soke (Head Founder) I see in Jason the qualities of a Lifetime Champion being formed. See what martial arts training can do to change your life or someone you love.

Calling me will make the difference. Immediate action leads to success.

All the Best,

Soke Joe Droual

Training Over 50

Being over 50 is just another begining. You have much more understanding of life but still must maintain an active excerise regiment to keep you going. In two weeks, I will be turning 59 and absolutely do not accept the fact of slowing down.

My 73 year old private remarked that he was glad he stayed active which makes him feel more alive and energtic. These words of wisdom came from a man who has been my student for 32 years.

Please call for a free consultation to reclaim your zest and youth. I will tailor a program that will fit your individual needs.

All the Best!

Soke Joe Droual.


"Did you hear the news" David said, beaming and smiling. "James scored 15 points higher on his Terranova Test from last year. He is now in the 99 percentile for 8 year olds in the whole country." I looked at James as we were doing our martial arts class in Ju-Jutsu.

"That's great news, I am really proud of you son", I replied. The father came back with a warm smile saying, "Thank you Soke Joe for helping him through your training."

Discover these results for you and your family. Our Children's Seminars will be returning in October. Please call 631.549.9612 for more information.

All the Best!

Soke Joe Droual.
