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.”

Personal Test For Personal Development

Do you have the strength to sit by yourself for 4 or more days without any kind of technology or distractions whatsoever? Without anything to read or write or watch or do? Without anything to listen to but the sounds of your own thoughts and voice?

Do you have the strength to be alone with yourself for 4 full days and see what you discover about yourself?  

Take the test and challenge yourself by following these 9 "easy" steps.... 

Step 1:  Plan for 4 full days in a row where you know you won't have to work, go to school, or be distracted or bothered by anyone.

Step 2: Find a location where you can be alone for 4 full days and nights by yourself, much preferably sound proof. Home alone if you live alone or can manage to get the home to yourself for 4 full days, a retreat, a cabin in the woods or camping in a tent for that matter. Make sure loved ones know where you are but let them know not to come for you other than an emergency. 

Step 3: Make certain you have enough healthy food and drink to last you the 4 days without the need to ever exit the premises.  Use the normal time you would to cook/prepare and eat your daily meals as you would or as the hunger arises.

Step 4: No technology (ie. tv, radio, computer, etc.) No books. No paper, no pen, no company, no contact with any other human being - NOTHING but you, comfortable seating of your choice in a room/environment of choice, the 4 walls that surround you AND YOUR THOUGHTS. Feel free to move around, walk, pace, etc.

Step 5: No alcohol, or mind/mood altering drugs (legal or illegal) of any kind during the 4 days or excess of caffeine; other than necessary health related medications you maybe on.

Step 6: Sleep when the need arises but do not exceed 7-8 hours of sleep within a 24-hour period during the 4 days. Do not sleep less than 7 hours per 24 hour period either if you can.  If you experience insomnia, continue your self examination and introspection as you would during your normal waking hours until you eventually do fall asleep. Preferably, go to sleep with sundown and wake up with the sunrise.

Step 7: Without any judgment whatsoever; Observe, analyse, dissect, examine and feel out every single random thoughts that enter your head and emotions you feel during your every waking moment be they positive, negative or neutral. Cry, laugh, scream, etc. when you feel the need as it comes naturally. 

Step 8: Question what needs questioning as it arises, question especially all dark emotions and decipher the origin of their roots: emotions like hate, rage, envy, greed, fear, insecurity, depression, sadness, judgment, resentment, etc. Identify the positive emotions and thoughts, familiarize yourself with their roots and origins, compare the energies of the dark vs lighter thoughts and emotions and their spirals.

Step 9: Don't shy away from yourself, learn, grow, evolve from your discoveries.  

This is a beginning to your personal development and betterment.... Self Actualization, introspection and analysis is crucial to personal evolution and growth.

Please, do feel free to post and share your experiences after the 4th day....

Do Some!!!!
