What we're about

What do we mean by 'Master your fate'?

Specifically speaking:
First, learn to control your emotions and defend yourself against larger, faster, and armed opponents.
Next, learn to increase your agility and strength, as well as protecting those you care about, while reducing your risks.
Then, learn to work in groups, survive without modern conveniences, use tools for defense and making shelter, and plan strategies.
After that, learn to focus and quiet your mind while training your instincts to deal with surprise attacks in close quarters.
Along the way, learn to negotiate with formidable opponents and adapt to volatile situations.
Finally, learn to gather information, and make whatever you need (food, medicine, tools) from scratch or scrap, and either blend into the environment or divert people's attention.
Besides all that, learn about different languages and cultures (particularly Japanese and how it has been influenced by China, Korea, India, England, America, and others).

We get together to practice six different styles of survival and self defense skills including crafts, herbal medicine, psychology, & leadership. Yoroshiku Onegaishimasu (Please think well of us)!
