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.”

From Finland...

From Tuipe Suhonen

July 23 at 2:17pm from a Facebook message:

I work at the Niuvanniemi mental hospital in Kuopio Finland. Today we had training in how to protect ourselves against violent patients. Your name was mentioned in the class and Senshido was part of what we covered and learned today. Interesting, simple and very powerful tactics for our own protection. I was like 'Wow, I know this guy. He is my Facebook buddy ' :-). Just wanted to tell you, that you and your work is known and taught in such a far away place like Finland :-).

Have a relaxin' weekend Richard
