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.”

A woman's point of view:

The following is an excerpt from one of the female participants who has recently taken our Women's Safe for Life personal defense workshop in Jasper Alberta this past February 20th 2011.

Today I attended a 6-hour Rape Prevention Workshop by Richard Dimitri of  Senshido Combative Science Technology. I’ve never taken any sort of personal protection training  but with my knack for getting myself into undesirable situations, I figured this workshop was a good idea. Besides, you just never know when you’ll be in the wrong place at the wrong time. A violent attack can’t always be prevented but it certainly helps to be prepared.
I don’t believe that preparing yourself for a personal attack that might not ever happen (fingers crossed!) indicates paranoia. Rather,  I believe that preparing yourself for the possibility is intelligent, proactive and empowering. Rape is a very common reality in today’s society. It could happen to anyone. You don’t have to be dressed like a prostitute and you don’t even have to be attractive.
Obviously, you don’t have to be a woman either. However, because the vast majority of rape victims are women, I’ll be tailoring the information in this post for female readers.
