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.”

"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)

  1. So you're saying that I don't need to meditate and live well, to get enlightenment and understanding, I just need to inhale???

  2. Nope. I'm saying I resonate with the particular quote and paragraph posted, that both meditation and inhalation are fine methods long as they work for you and that perhaps reading the brother's book before forming an opinion on either or? :`)
