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.

"What seems to infuriate people who have never done psychedelics most of all is that people who have done psychedelics often find people who have never tripped to be extremely funny. Stoners and trippers commonly laugh at the unquestioned rituals of conventional, materialistic, consumer society, and they tend to mock straight society’s serious, consumer-driven attitudes toward money, greed, and power.
I suspect that this humorous attitude toward conventional customs is, again, a genetically-wired response from activating our higher brain circuits, although it sure can upset some people. But this may be because the controversy and attention is actually necessary to spread the word about cannabis and psychedelics around the globe.
It may be that cannabis and psychedelics are illegal because genetic intelligence recognizes that this is simply the best way to inform people about them. Nonetheless, as Timothy Leary once said, “LSD can cause psychotic reactions in people who haven’t taken it.” --from my new book, Over the Edge of the Mind: Exploring the Interface of Psychedelics, Culture and Consciousness (Inner Traditions, 2012)

A very huge thank you to the YWCA Alaska for their continuous support. This organization continues to kick ass on so many fronts - and we are damn happy to be associated with them and their cause...because it is a cause of human betterment and equality - and any cause that seeks to better humanity as a whole, we my friends...then that cause is encompassed in the Senshido International Movement.
Oh, don't forget to read the shit:
Time to go do some shit. See you next time, ladies and gentlemen!
Be safe, become an active part in your own life, love those dear to you and never stop seeking to better yourself.
