Intelligent Self Defense for the 21st Century.
The classes at Elements of Self Defense follow the To-Shin Do training curriculum.
The To-Shin Do Self Defense method uses superior position, structure and leverage to defeat conventional strength and size.
When properly used together, gravity and bone alignment generate tremendous force. This means that To-Shin Do will work for people of all sizes and body types.
Our lessons are always practiced in a positive, inclusive and encouraging atmosphere. Our goal is not to defeat competitors, but to develop the protector skills and knowledge to establish peace and safety.
