Introduction to Senshido

Senshido’s first mission is survival. At its heart, it is a reality-based self-defense system. This means, in essence, it teaches survival skills for real world violent situations. It helps prepare you for the worst, by drawing out the elemental and instinctive self-defense tools we all have.

Senshido’s second mission, and one that is increasingly coming to define its focus and outlook as an international movement, is peace. Peace through self-development. Peace through transcending the triggers to spark or engage in violence.

Senshido is so much more than self-defense; it is a developed system that delves into the psychological triggers of violence, deconstructing the ego, and setting a foundation for comprehensive transformation of persons and communities.
