Not knowing the "Shu-ha-ri" learning model, I looked it up.
It turns out to be spelled "Shuhari" on Wikipedia.
I suggest you either explain it a bit more, or leave it out.

A few sentences from Wikipedia, added as a footnote could have saved me the trouble of looking it up:

Shuhari roughly translates to "first learn, then detach, and finally transcend."
shu "protect", "obey" — traditional wisdom — learning fundamentals, techniques, heuristics, proverbs
ha "detach", "digress" — breaking with tradition — detachment from the illusions of self
ri "leave", "separate" — transcendence — there are no techniques or proverbs, all moves are natural, becoming one with spirit alone without clinging to forms; transcending the physical

Re: Shu-ha-ri
In the footnote on page xii, both 'Ha' and 'Ri' are defined as 'detach'
