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.”

Join us to learn Senshido and The Shredder concept. Are you worried that you couldn’t defend yourself if you needed to? Maybe you think you are too short, too little, too round, too thin, too slow, too old? Think again. Shredding is a self-defense strategy and concept that can be used by anyone, regardless of age, gender, size or athletic ability. 

According to Senshido Alaska, “the advantage of the Shredder is that it is a concept and tool that can be used by one and all. It is ‘user friendly’ and requires no memorization of techniques, no repetitive training, and no need for high levels of athleticism.” The YWCA offers a safe place to learn and practice self-defense, so grab your friends, your mom, or your neighbor and come get stronger at the YWCA---because you are worth it.
