Why a ‘Martial Leadership School’?
True leadership is about being first to act to serve others. In our world, the need for positive leadership of self and others is endless. Leadership is required to achieve a goal or an outcome, to overcome a challenge, to create and build relationships and communities, to take a stand against emotional and physical violence, and to cause a positive change in our world.
- The practice of Martial Leadership results in the following:
- we become harder to kill ‘both physically and spiritually’
- we build our capacity to take positive action
- we embrace the journey of self-mastery
- we commit to serve ‘self and others’
Leadership is not about position, leadership is about service; and to truly serve anything is a meaningful way, requires that you be willing to sacrifice.
No Sacrifice=No Service=No Leadership
Our Core Programs
Karate – As one of the oldest martial arts, the origins of indigenous okinawan karate or ‘te’ was developed for self defence. Karate application relies on a deep understanding of anatomy, physics, and biomechanics. Karate practice, specifically ‘kata practice’ is the way to condition oneself and begin to understand the deeper, and in most cases the hidden techniques of self defence.
Aikido – The core principle of aikido is to never use force against force, and to accept, harmonize, and steward outside forces to a peaceful resolution. Aikido is about always staying balanced, in an unbalanced world; and to use this ability to create connection and relationship.
‘Beginner +’ – Our 8 week beginner + plus program consists of a private 1-on-1 lesson with Sensei, a specific beginner cohort welcoming and orientation, and a mentored transition into our regular classes. All at a special discounted beginner rate.
