No styles, no systems, no rituals, no lineages, no masters, no labels, no belts, no katas, no uniforms, no dogmas;

Only the process of self actualization & personal expression of truth through functional combative movement and fitness.

On a purely physical level, we share how to individually and collectively use all of our natural tools as well as extended ones, offensively and defensively in a strategic and tactical manner and in all ranges of combat.

We're put through functional physical fitness training where we learn to push ourselves through our own perceived limitations. We also have much to offer on nutrition, health and optimum performance.

On a more cerebral level we learn about the psychology of violence, fear, stress & confrontation management skills, deescalation strategies and holistic survival tactics.

As the mind navigates the body; by challenging personal self defense dogmas and individual & core belief systems, personal growth and evolution occurs.

On a human level, we learn about the ripple effect and the moral, legal, and ethical consequences of our chosen actions while self examining our darkest emotions. We are encouraged to question everything, to learn to think for ourselves, to be more accountable and research everything we learn and to be open and responsive to life without judgment.

On a personal level, the training can make you face and slay your own demons.

Everything shared here is highly encouraged to be individually researched, to “absorb what is useful, add what is specifically of your own and disregard the rest.”

Much, much more than just 'RBSD'.

Once again, our work speaks for itself.
From Eli Bailey, Sydney Australia - March 5, 2009 at 1:48am

Hey Rich,
Its been a long time mate, how you been? Was really good to read your interview in Blitz mag this month, particularly the parts covering the progression of Senshido and the direction that the system & you are heading in the future. I totally agree with the message that we are our own worst enemies, but people rarely realise that. Ive only started to understand that recently, after losing my dad at the start of last year. I dealt with the whole situation badly, turned heavy to drinking, partying, making bad choices, losing friends... all leading me no-where positive in life and not making me happy.

I'm now making changes and stopped drinking altogether, getting back on track, reconnecting with friends etc. so your interview came at the perfect time. Your work does effect alot of people, me included, as it is more than self defense, it's giving people the power to change their own lives for the better. Also just wanted to mention that I wont be able to attend the Aus seminars this year, though I really wanted to attend, particularly the new Walk the Talk seminar. Hopefully next year...
Hope this finds you well.
All the best,
