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.”

Jasper, Alberta Martial Arts Group Classes:


One year of Martial Arts, Mind, Body & Spirit by Jennifer (Jasper Team Member)

When I started Martial Arts with Rich Dimitri, I never imagined that my life would be so different one year later. I started for exercise; I wanted to improve my body, lose weight, become healthier and stronger. I never imagined that my mental strength would be stronger than ever.

Physically I have gone from a size 10 to a size 6, I have lost 10 pounds and gained muscle in places I never knew I had muscle.

Mentally, I can do anything. When I started I had/have, always will be, dealing with a very emotional divorce. My self confidence had disappeared and I didn't like myself anymore. Senshido has taught me that I am stronger, capable of doing anything that I put my mind to. It has also shown me that by improving myself, I have inspired others. I was always the one that wanted to be like someone else. To have people/members tell me that I inspire them to do better is a very surreal feeling.

I am important, that is what my training has taught me most. One year later, I love myself again and I have Senshido and it's evolution towards just being Martial Arts, Rich, Tania and all the Jasper members to thank for that!

I know this year is going to be even more amazing and I am looking forward to it! Bring it on! DO SOME!
