Hoshinjutsu has a ranking system based on the Japanese Five Element philosophical model known as the Godai (Earth, Water, Fire, Wind and Void). Each belt ranking represents a physiological energetic center and the techniques and meditations serve to balance the bio energetic functions of the body and mind. Hoshinjutsu techniques are based on simple movements and leverage, as opposed to athleticism or physical strength, meant for neutralizing the size and strength advantages of the attacker and techniques are drawn from martial systems from around the world.

Hoshinjutsu emphasizes development of the mind as well as the body through reading the works of the Masters, studying strategy, exploring anatomy and physiology, examining Eastern and Western Psychology and developing proficiency in the healing arts. Practicing kindness and consideration towards others is also a very important aspect of the system. The primary goal of Hoshinjutsu is to assist practitioners in developing their full potential in all aspects of their lives.
