About Us

Who We Are

Sensei Matthew Smith is the Headmaster of Juko-Ryu Toide & Martial Arts Center and has been studying Martial Arts and body mechanics since he was 7 years old. He has experience in several art forms such as TeaKwonDo, Wing Chun and many more. 

Sensei Smith joined Juko-Kai International in 2013, was certified to instruct by the Soke (Head founder) of Juko-Kai and holds ranks in several of the Juko-Kai arts. His highest ranks include a 4th degree black belt in Juko-Ryu Toide & 2nd degree black belt in Goshinjutsu.

"My passion is to study and teach the Martial Arts and through these art forms empower others." ~ Sensei Matthew Smith

Karissa M. Salazar is the manager of Juko-Ryu Toide & Martial Arts Center and holds ranks in Toide, Goshinjutsu and Shorin-Ryu Karate. She is a Licensed Dental Hygienist and health advocate for the community and is a survivor of domestic violence. Her personal experience drives her fire for providing safety in the community. 

“It can happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere. If I would have known half of what I know now about how to protect myself, I would have had less fear and more control over the situation. Your life changes when it flashes before your eyes and you’re stuck knowing that your survival is up to them and them alone. I can’t accept that! We don't have to live that way! Let’s live empowered and change those odds!!” ~Karissa M. Salazar

What We Offer

Juko-Ryu Aiki Inyo Toide: An elite art form created by the Kings of Okinawa involving throwing, wrist locks and powerful strikes.

Shorin-Ryu Karate-Jutsu: A traditional art taught as a Karate-Jutsu, a non-sport Karate for the sole purpose of self-defense, not competition.

Juko-Ryu Aiki Inyo Goshinjutsu: A special division of Juko-Ryu Bujutsu that pertains to modern-day self-defense involving techniques such as wrist locks, effective blocking, throwing, combination movements and much more!

 Juko-Ryu Kempo Jujutsu: Simple body contact method of combat Jujutsu. It contains the throws most commonly associated with old-style Jujutsu and from which modern day Judo originated.

Juko-Ryu Aiki Inyo Kempojutsu: A non-sport, non-kata, hard-fist combat art that was founded and developed by Soke Rod Sacharnoski as a method to open the door to an opponent's attack, thus enabling the Kempojutsu practitioner to enter and control the attacker.
