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.”

17 years and countless testimonials...

can't all be wrong?!?!?! lol... 

A Weekend with Richard Dimitri - By Brian Opdenkelder:

Last weekend, I had the privilege of spending two days with Rich Dimitri - one of Canada’s premiere reality-based self-defence experts. Now, this fact is pretty cool in itself - based solely on the merit of Rich’s impressive credentials in the self-d biz – but this seminar turned out to be several times cooler than I had anticipated, as it revealed several deeper, more interesting and inspiring layers of Rich Dimitri, and his Senshido movement.

Rich, sharing his insights with Tiffany & Tim
Rich spent the first hour of Saturday’s session providing the “back-story” of Senshido. He discussed his personal journey, using accounts of his own personal and professional experiences with violence to shed a bright light on this ugly subject, for those in attendance.  This was certainly not what I expected, but Rich’s insights were truly enlightening - and important, as they established context for our training, and set the tone for the rest of the weekend.
