At Sei Shin Dojo, our goal is to teach self-protection by having students go through scenarios that are close as possible to real situations. We cover one-on-one aggression, protecting yourself when knocked down and fighting while on the ground, being attacked by someone with a weapon, fighting in tight spaces, multiple attackers, and a basic understanding of your legal rights in protecting yourself and loved ones. Applying concepts of the traditional arts to realistic attacks makes learning self-protection easier and more understandable. We first teach techniques in a “step-by-step” fashion, then you will also be given the opportunity to apply what you have learned by doing those “step-by-step” techniques in as close to a “real live” situation. In those techniques are concepts and principles that emphasize what you need learn that can be applied to any attack or situation. We have a ranking system both in AJJ and PTK and those systems are designed to have you be able to demonstrate a level of proficiency that is required at each rank.
Along with our regular traditional classes, we offer specific classes such as live grappling, live light sparring, and weapons training based on Pekiti Tirsia Kali. For those students who reached a level of proficiency, we offer additional classes that go off our usual belt list. With a natural balance of traditional learning with “live” training, we believe that you will get a great deal of self-protection by training at our dojo.
