The Wan Yun Loong Combat Lab has been providing quality combat training in South Texas for the past 11 years. Wan Yun Loong, (Man Youun Ryuu in Japanese) translates as Ten-Thousand Cloud Dragon, a rather eccentric definition of this art, since this art is ever changing and ever growing.
The basis of our training comes from the Tenchijin (Heaven, Earth, Man book) of Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu (Ninjutsu). We have found it to be one of the most effective combat arts in existence therefore we have chosen it as our foundation. We also incorporate many techniques from other arts, such as Philippino knife fighting, Escrima, Tang So Do, Judo, Kung Fu, Muay Thai, Jeet Kune Do, Jujutsu, and American Boxing.
Our students come from all walks of life. From computer engineers to military police, students, to fire fighters, some with previous martial arts experience, and others without any training.
Our ranking system is very simple, a beginner will were a white belt for a short while. Once they have shown basic proficiency, they will receive rank as a green belt. That green belt will be worn for the next 3-5 years of training, and covers all student ranks from 9th kyu to 1st kyu. A Black Belt is worn only at Shodan Rank & higher.
The Wan Yun Loong Combat Lab was founded by Master Sonny Gary in 1997 and is currently under the direction of Richard Elizondo, Sergio Hernandez, and Robert Acox.
The Wan Yun Loong is a Bujinkan Shibu School affiliated with the Heart of Texas Bujinkan Dojo. For more info on the Heart of Texas Bujinkan Dojo Network, please visit http://southtexasninjutsu.webs.com
