To-Shin Do martial arts training
was developed as a way to promote peace, security, and well-being. It is command over adversity – never a way to promote violence. The world needs more protectors, not more predators.
In an over-stressed society, balancing a clear mind, fit body, and centered spirit is the pathway to becoming a tatsujin – a fully actualized person operating masterfully in all of life. In To-Shin Do martial arts training, you will learn methods to deal with:
Grappling, throwing, choking, joint locking
Striking, kicking, and punching
Self defense when pulled to the ground
Stick, blade, cord, and projectile defense
Gun disarms and safety
Knife and cane defenses
Successfully handling multiple assailants and surprise attacks
Overcoming psychological intimidation or bullying
Be ready to get the most out of every class!
Attend classes weekly on a regular, consistent schedule
Classes include workout introduction to To-Shin Do techniques, with a chance to try the techniques against training targets and in dynamic simulation with a partner.
