Nyingbulam is a Canadian martial arts system established by Jason Carter in 2001. Jason Carter started his martial arts training in 1982 in Black dragon Kung fu and then transitioned to Judo taught by Ron McKay during 1985-86.
(deceased; Ron was mayor of Clinton Ont, the Principal at many local schools and a hockey coach). In 1996 Jason started training in Shotokan Karate and Nihon Jutsu under Sensei Lance Anderson and Sensei Stephen Lonsdale. (Both were awarded Black Belt certification from renowned teacher the late Sensei Kim-Hooi Wong (Shotokan Karate Association of Malaysia). Sensei Lonsdale also received his Black Belt certification, (Shodan) from Nidai Soke Ryuho Okuyama in Hakkoryu and then continued his study under Menkyo Kaiden Shihan Michael J. LaMonica who he received his Sandan certification from. He also holds Black Belt certification (Shodan) in Nihon Goshin Jutsu – Professor Richard Morris’s Syllabus).

In 1999 Jason received his Black Belt certification (Shodan) in Shotokan Karate and Seishindo (Nihon Jujitsu) from Sensei Lance Anderson& Sensei (Soke) Stephen Lonsdale. Jason continued his studies under both of these men and eventually received his Nidan in 2002, Sandan in 2004 in both Shotokan Karate and Seishindo. And in 2006 after 10+ years of martial study Jason received his Yondan and the title of Shihan in the art of Seishindo.

The art of Nyingbulam grew out of group of seminars and classes taught in Clinton Ont. in 2001/02. These classes at that time were called JiyuYoshikido and consisted of a combination of the heavy strikes of Shotokan and the rugged joint locks and throws of Nihon Jutsu. Then in 2002 Jason’s life changed when he started to study under Karma Yeshe Wangpo of Nyingje Companions in Tibetan Kaygu Linage Buddhism.
(Karma Yeshe Wangpo, B.A., M.Ed is a retired Tibetan Buddhist monk of the Karma Kagyu lineage, and a student of the Very Venerable Kenchen Thrangu Rinpoche). Jason continued to train under his guidance until Karma Yeshe moved back to Nova Scotia where he was originally from in 2006. Jason continues to keep in touch with Karma Yeshe and still considers him as “his spiritual catalyst”. This was the third piece of the puzzle that Jason was missing in his martial/spiritual training and was the catalyst needed to transform JiyuYoshikido in what would become the harmonious art of Nyingbulam.

The Japanese based self defense art of Nyingbulam is an eclectic sampling of ancient and modern techniques of self defense as they were developed in Japan. The martial techniques primarily consist of striking, throwing, joint locking and chocking techniques. It is a hard style of JuJitsu which means it uses hard punching, kicking and limb trapping skills to distract an attacker allowing the defender to unbalance the attacker by throwing him to the ground using one of the many throws or sweeps taught in the syllabus. Once the attacker is unbalanced a painful joint lock can be applied to control him or he can be rendered ineffective by having the joint dislocated or broken. Other options include further striking techniques, choking into submission or disengagement.

This martial side is deeply blended with a path of practice and spiritual development which leads to insight into the true nature of reality. These practices such as meditation and mindfulness practise are means of changing oneself in order to develop the qualities of awareness, kindness, and wisdom. The tenets of Nyingbulam’s spiritual practise and teachings are straightforward and practical, nothing is fixed or permanent; actions have consequences; change is possible. It teaches students practical methods which enable them to realise and use its teachings in order to transform their experience, to be fully responsible for their lives, their safety and the safety of others around them.

Since the inception of Nyingbulam Jason has conducted seminars and classes across North America and Europe teaching his “Enlightened Combat” to martial artists and frontline professionals. In 2011 & 2012 he was able to engage with even more people by the means of his Rogers TV Show “Urban Self Defense”. It was through this show that he was able to get people involved and thinking about their personal safety at home and at work. In 2012 he was the invited guest “Key Note” speaker for the city of London’s 18th. annual “Empowerment and Action Day”, hosted by London Accessibility Advisory Committee. Where he had the opportunity to speak to hundreds of event guests about “Getting out in your community; what you need to know to stay safe.” These opportunities to inform and educate came in many forms. Over the years he has had written articles published in several martial arts magazines and has appeared on RogersTV “Day Time” Show, AccessAbility TV and spoke about student safety on 106.9 FM - The “X” Radio.

Sensei Carter is still active in the teaching of Nyingbulam to students and affiliated clubs across Ontario and beyond. Twice a year he holds a sangha (Nyingje Jujitsu Sangha) gathering of Nyingbulam affiliated clubs where students and enthusiast come together grow friendships, train and to be graded within the art.
