Our Martial Art

To-Shin Do martial arts training was developed as a way to promote peace, security, and well-being in the world – command over adversity – never as a way to practice 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 areas of life.

In To-Shin Do you will learn

• Grappling, throwing, choking and 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

Our People

Our dojo community is our treasure. Our students all enjoy productive, contributing, happy, and advancing lives in pursuit of perfecting the protector’s “art of winning”. We may not look like the stereotype, if you mistakenly think of martial arts as grim confrontation or brutal competition. We are real people – business owners, attorneys, college students, military, medical professionals, table waiters, mechanics, school teachers, police officers, teen soccer players, moms, granddads, and all of their children. In short, we are your neighbors, and we invite you to join our wonderfully supportive community of friends.
