Self Development

patenaude-family-320x214Our main focus in the 90s was to blend the very best technology for helping students develop confidence, focus, follow-through and consistency and goal setting. In essence, we believed in using martial arts training as a vehicle to improve every area of a person’s life.

Before long, our students were coming to us with questions more relating to life than self-defence.

In Fang Shen Do (our unique family style), you learn that personal protection can actually be quite simple. It doesn’t require a PhD to develop self-defence skills, or to realize competitive training is great for building confidence and motivation. But once you’ve gone through the experience of acquiring these skills, you can’t help but ask yourself – what’s next? What else do I want to accomplish with my life?

That’s when we got involved with groups such as the Robbins Institute, Tolly Burkan’s F.I.R.E., Peak Potentials and The Global Information Network. Alongside these partners, we can offer something unique to our martial art students. Since most martial art schools look so much alike, we thought offering personal development with a twist would set us apart – and set us apart it did!

Training in martial arts will test you in every way possible

Once you come on-board as a student, you’ll have the opportunity to attend special seminars and workshops on topics ranging from firewalking, arrow and re-bar bending, shards of glass walking, goal setting and leadership skills, to name but a few. Imagine finding out what you were born to do, or learning to confront fears that are holding you back from living your life to its fullest.

In the end we all want to lead happier, more fulfilling lives – and martial arts training is the perfect tool to accomplish that.

Choose the focus of your training, either “Sport Based” (Kickboxing) Sanshou/MMA or “Real Life Based” Self-Defence/Kung-Fu programs. Once you become a student, you have regular access to upcoming events, seminars and workshops!
