DO SOME SHIT!!!!
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.
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.

I was so impressed, not just with Rich’s techniques, but the man himself, that I asked Rich if he’d be kind enough to do an interview. Rich graciously agreed, and what follows is the most revealing, in-depth interview this “underground” star of the RSBD world has ever given.

I don't necessarily agree with nor believe everything said on the clips/news-bits I am providing.
I am posting to provoke thought. There is something indeed wrong with the world today and self defense begins with the self and encompasses a fuck load more than beating up the mugger/rapist/criminal.
If something doesn't look right, if the status quo of things doesn't appeal to you, if something seems fucked up.... QUESTION AND DO SOME SHIT!
If people violently oppose something, label you, try to put you in a faction for questioning shit, then you should be QUESTIONING THINGS EVEN MORE....
If bullshit, inconsistencies, coincidences, repetitive circumstances and violent opposition to question is happening around you, voice your opinions, speak your minds and FUCK those who try to quiet you by labeling you or placing you in any kind of faction....
Keep asking the hard questions, keep fucking pressuring for logic until the answers begin to make sense, this is how CHANGE HAPPENS!
DO SOME SHIT!

Hi. We're pro peace. We'd like to invite you to be as well. You're still more than welcome here even if you're not pro peace.
Our mission isn't to teach people to hurt others, it's to teach people to strengthen themselves primarily through personal growth and evolution using self defense as the vehicle.
To protect one's self adequately, one must first recognize that the true enemy is within and that self defense begins first and foremost; with the self.
This takes much strength because the real enemy is our very own egos & those who claim have none are the ones we must be weary of the most.
You see.... No one'll ever fuck your life up like you will, and no one will ever improve it like you will; that's the kicker...
You decide....Brought to you by: Senshido International's DO SOME SHIT movement. No. Nothing to do with bowls either. It's metaphoric. Yes. "Metaphoric". As in "shit's" a metaphor for 'good and selfless deeds'. Now quit reading this and go DO SOME SHIT already!!!!!!!! damn man.... damn....
