Dojoku Martial Arts
Practitioners of Budo in Japan are told to make themselves "KU", both in everyday life and for fighting. This means you must put yourself in a state where you are not stuck on anything.  It is said that if you are not stuck on anything, you will not fall for an enemy's plots, and you will be able to calmly take the best course of action. DOJOKU was officially founded in 2004 by Soke / Founder Raymond L. Cagle, all though it had been in the developmental stages for many years. Dojoku is his life's work and long time dream of creating a well rounded and effective style.   Dojoku is a non-traditional, American Martial Art focusing on self- defense and real world combat training. It maintains the traditional values of the martial arts, while at the same time encompassing the core techniques and ideals from several different styles. Dojoku is an American Hybrid Reality Based Self Defense System!

A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer. -Bruce Lee
The actual evolution of what is now called Dojoku occurred over a period of three decades of training in the Texas area.  Soke Cagle recognized early in life each style's relative strengths and weaknesses, and began to search for workable adaptations, using different styles.  Working with some of his advanced students and other instructors, Soke Cagle began to develop some of the techniques which were later to become known as DOJOKU.  Techniques which represent a blend of soft and hard styles and new techniques are used both in class and private lessons.  The popularity gained by Soke Cagle and his style, through this new integration of techniques prompted him to further integrate more punches, blocks, and kicks into the style. Through the next 5 years while Master Cagle was serving our country in the U.S. Navy and in the Gulf War in Iraq, he continued to refine and add to the style.  Each opportunity he had to go ashore in a different country, he took time to seek out martial art schools and train with black belts from all over the world from California to Japan, Australia, Hong Kong, China, Korea, Thailand, Bali, Bahrain, Iraq, Indonesia, Singapore, and Guam.  This new approach to the martial arts became an identifiable style which possessed techniques and philosophy from many martial arts. At this point, the style was still unnamed, even though techniques and philosophies which were peculiar to the new system had already been established.  Finally, the name for the style, DOJOKU Martial Arts was decided upon.  The Japanese word DOJO is translated "Martial Arts training hall".  The Japanese word KU means "Empty Mind” or “No Mind”.
