Taijutsu Level 1 – Foundations of Self-Protection

Begin your adventure with a 64-class course in effective physical, intellectual, and emotional self-protection – an exciting excursion into empowering self development. To determine the 12 most common surprise attack ambush assaults likely to be thrown at good people by dangerous aggressors, we interviewed law enforcement officers, security professionals, nightclub doormen, emergency room doctors – and even coroners. We then designed our first phase of training to show you how to win in the 12 surprise attacks most likely to occur in a hostile confrontation, how to rescue other people in those 12 threat situations, how to use 12 natural body self-defense tools, and how to develop the grounded presence of focused command in high-pressure situations.


Taijutsu Level 2 – Advanced Self-Protection

Build your skills in success-generating principles of personal confidence, ability to recognize potential danger as it builds, and capability to respond effectively under pressure as you explore a next-stage set of 24 advanced applications of winning skill and strategy. When it is not a surprise attack ambush and you know you must stay and defend yourself or someone else, you have to be trained and ready to win a fight. A 145 class course adds advanced concepts in fighting footwork and intelligent power, and shows you how to develop the eyes and mind to recognize danger as it builds so you can be in just the right place at just the right moment to control the conflict on your terms.


Taijutsu Level 3 – Path of the Protector Martial Arts

Perfect your protector skills as your training evolves into a personal exploration of power — a path to self-mastery. Learn to use evasive lock-up captures to slip by danger and immobilize an aggressor on your terms, and render him incapable of continuing the fight. Your capacity and confidence evolve as you explore the third-step set of 24 more advanced applications in a 145 class course leading to Black Belt in To-Shin Do. You know you are living up to your fullest potential, the “exciting peace” of coming home to the truth of just how strong you really are.


Taijutsu Level 4 – Black Belt Mastery

Learning doesn’t stop at Black Belt – that’s where highest mastery begins! As a holder of the Black Belt, you will work on personalizing your training for a winning spirit in all of life’s challenges. Advanced skills include how to use less effort to generate more speed and power, how to respond with grace and intelligence when confronted with brutality and ignorance, how to rescue and protect others, and how to deal with multiple attackers, assailants with weapons, or aggressors skilled in street-fighting or other martial arts.



Children 4 to 7 years old have fun learning how to find safety, earn confidence, and gain new skills of thinking, speaking, and acting for self protection and self esteem. Respect for others is taught (kids enjoy helping other kids), with lots of focused concentration (kids thrive on it), and lots of laughter (kids love it). Classes are safe and non-competitive and emphasize learning how to learn. “Confident, On-purpose, On-target, Leadership” – What a C.O.O.L. program for your child.
