Inochi’s founder, Paul Haben began his studies in martial arts in 1988, receiving his Shodan Ranking in Jukido in 1995 and later his Yodan Ranking in Jukido in 2015. He also holds a Black Belt Ranking in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu which he received after 9 years in training in 2015, and with 25 plus years experience he holds a Nidan Ranking in Judo. Mr. Haben continues to pursue the foundational principle of integration, continued learning and refinement in Martial Arts for maximum effectiveness.
We believe in honoring the traditions of the arts and allowing those traditions to temper the individual but not limit the individual. With that in mind, Mr. Haben has and still continues to train in a variety of other combat systems incorporating the effective and applicable technique into the Inochi system. Inochi is not unique in its concept however it is unique in its implementation. Every class is a fresh look at continuing to advance in each student’s technique, character, effectiveness, self-control, composure, self-discipline, confidence and many, many more attributes that lead to success in martial arts yes, but more importantly in life.
