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.”

How's your awareness???

This is from my friend Aladdin's wall off facebook.  Honestly, I got it right away... we have actual drills at Senshido to develop just this kind of awareness and peripheral vision development.

So how many of you got it or missed it?


  1. I got it perfectly. I must confess I have seen this video before and I failed the first time. When I have the students describe me on my video the answers are so wide ranging. Most people in my experience lack awareness. Good video mate!

  2. This is actually a remake of a 30 year old (or so) test with a guy in a gorilla suit. Funny to see it redone!
