To-Shin Do (Modern Ninjutsu) martial arts training develops the ability to live fully and operate effectively in all areas of life. Our program uses a thorough system of personal preparation for facing the conflicts and opposition that are inevitable in the course of everyday life. Much more than a “fighting style,” this training extends into all aspects of life, helping you develop a more positive and self-assured outlook. To-Shin Do techniques are based on an ancient and well-tested system of warrior disciplines, handed down by nine historical Japanese family lineages. At the same time, our training program is built around a very modern approach to successfully handling the type of threats and confrontations that are a part of our own contemporary culture. From your very first lesson, you will learn methods that you can use right away, regardless of your physical condition or any prior martial arts experience.

Harimau Berantai  Silat is translated as "the Chained Tiger" Silat and it has a history that spans generations. Originating from the island of Java it was primarily a battlefield system passed down from generation to generation within the family. Although it has empty hand techniques, as a battlefield system it is abundant in weapons use and application. Just some of these weapons are the keris (wavy knife), cindai (sarong garment), kapak kecil (small axe), belati (knife), kerambit (hook blade), tekpi (sai), parang (sword), ekor pari (stingray tail), pancawangan sakti (bladed tonfa) and the tongkat (stick). In the training of Harimau Berantai the student's attacking-strategy is the study of the vulnerable parts of the human anatomy especially those directly related to the applications of bladed weapons.
