At Sei Shin Dojo, our goal is to teach self-protection by having students experience scenarios that are close as possible to real situations. Applying concepts of the traditional arts to realistic attacks makes learning self-defense easier and more understandable. We cover topics such as:

  • One-on-one aggression as well as multiple attackers

  • Protecting yourself when knocked down and fighting while on the ground

  • Being attacked by someone with a knife, club, gun, or other weapon

  • Fighting in tight or confined spaces

OUR PROGRAMS

Adult American Jiu Jitsu

A scenario-based art that teaches students to respond to situations with minimal effort using principles of physics, balance, and basic knowledge of human anatomy. AJJ draws from martial arts such as Aiki Jiu Jitsu, Aikido, Kali, Judo, Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Pekiti Tirsia Kali

A proven system of combat strategy and tactics that provides protection from strikes and attacks, destruction of opponents weapons, and domination of any combat or self-defense situation, executed with techniques that attack, quarter, and neutralize single or multiple opponents.

Kids American Jiu Jitsu

Instruction in American Jiu Jitsu tailored to children between the ages of 5 and 15. Training in this style of martial arts allows kids to develop self confidence, discipline and focus, and the knowledge to protect themselves against bullies or attackers. 

TRAINING AT SEI SHIN DOJO

Teaching Style

Techniques are first taught step-by-step. Students then apply what they have learned by performing those techniques in a realistic, scenario-based training situation.

Advancement

Both American Jiu Jitsu and Pekiti Tirsia Kali have ranking systems with specific performance standards. Students must demonstrate mastery of the techniques in order to be promoted to their next rank.

Community

Classes at Sei Shin Dojo are open to students of all levels. Advanced students are genuinely interested in sharing their knowledge with beginners, as teaching others allows one to improve their own mastery of a technique.

Learning

In addition to classes focused on traditional instruction of belt-level techniques, other sessions might incorporate light sparring, live grappling, and weapons training.
