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.”

YWCA Alaska and Senshido Alaska - Helping to Empower Kids!

AGES 6-13,


In response to community requests the YWCA Alaska is offering a Senshido Self Defense class for younger aged children. Come learn a self-defense tool that could save your life! Please pass this on to anyone who might benefit from these tools.

Empower Your Kids TO BE SAFE...FOR LIFE  

All children deserve to live safe, confident and empowered lives free from unnecessary fear and worry.

This course shares what parents need to know to teach their kids how to be safe from predatory violence. It dispels the most common myths and beliefs around self-protection for kids and delivers relevant, updated, highly effective information and strategies which are easy to understand, learn and remember. Most importantly, it does so without the fear mongering and scare tactics which do nothing to improve children's safety and quality of life.

This course will empower kids with the skills and confidence to stay safe, as well as give parents a greater peace of mind. 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.Worth It - YWCA Alaska  

Senshido Self Defense Course 
Featuring The REACT technique 

Join us to learn Senshido, or The REACT technique. 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. REACT is a self-defense strategy that can be used by anyone, regardless of age, gender, size or athletic ability. According to Senshido Alaska, "the advantage of REACT 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."
