Self-Defense Training Starts Tomorrow!

The self-defense training weekend with Marc MacYoung starts tomorrow (Friday) evening!

If you’ve been thinking about attending, whether to hone your skills or to start developing them, now is the time!  There are still a FEW spots open for the weekend (or any part thereof – yes, you can do just one day of it, as well).

If you’re uncertain, but curious, consider coming just to the Friday night talk and Q&A!

Marc MacYoung – what’s he known for?

Marc MacYoung, No Nonsense Self-Defense

Marc MacYoung, self-defense expert

Marc is known for several things: an awareness-based approach to self-defense; his ability to break things down into easily understood and digestible pieces; his no-nonsense approach (what really works); and knowledge and expertise developed through both study and experience.

He’s thoughtful, careful, and challenging – challenging to our preconceptions, to our projections, to our illusions, to our stories. He’s dedicated to seeing reality as it is, and dealing with it.

Who is this appropriate for?

This workshop is appropriate for the young to the elderly, men and women, from beginners to experienced self-defense/martial arts practitioners.  In other words, it is appropriate for anyone who would like to learn more about self-defense – and, in fact, about self.

What if I need to know more?

Learn about avoiding crime: Friday Aug. 16

Interested in learning how to make yourself less vulnerable to criminal activity?   How to defend yourself by avoiding situations before they reach the level of physical confrontation?

Marc MacYoung, No Nonsense Self-Defense

Marc MacYoung, self-defense expert

Self-defense expert Marc MacYoung joins us on Friday evening, August 16, with a talk on crime avoidance, followed by a question and answer session.  He says:

Many martial artists spend years, if not decades, learning how to protect themselves from criminal attacks. But they haven’t spent any time looking at how criminals select victims or commit their attacks. ‘Crime Avoidance’ is a court-recognized system showing you how to identify and articulate what the criminal did to set you up for a crime. It’s mostly how to nonviolently foil a felon’s attempts to rob, rape, or assault you.

When: Friday August 16, 7pm
Where: Scottsdale AZ
Cost: $15

Friday’s talk is followed by a self-defense weekend training, sponsored by Ten No Kishi Dojo.

Five Belt Advancements in the DTMMS Dojo!

Ten No Kishi Dojos - Karate Self-Defense Jiu Jitsu Chulukua-RyuOn March 9, five martial arts students in DTMMS’s Ten No Kishi dojo tested for rank advancement.  Each student was asked to demonstrate a full range of knowledge and technique, including basic drills, katas, and self-defense sets to a judging panel of four – and each student showed significant gains from the time and commitment they had devoted to their training.  Our Soke, Harley SwiftDeer Reagan, presided in the assessment process, aided by two black belts and a brown belt.

Congratulations to all five students for their dedication and perseverance: Dakotah, promoted to yellow belt; Annetta, Love, and Galiel to orange belt; and Jon to blue belt (advancing two belt ranks in one test due the length and excellence of his training). We all gain from their investment.

Martial Arts Belt Promotion 12/22

Congratulations to Bruce Kube, who tested for and received his orange belt at last night’s Ten No Kishi class.

Bruce has worked diligently over the last several months to hone his skills, and as a result is also the Ten No Kishi Student of the Month for both November and December.


The dojo will take a break during the week of 12/27 – 12/31.  Classes resume on Monday, January 3.

Ten No Kishi classes feature karate and jiu jitsu with a focus on self-defense.

Martial Arts Belt Promotions 9/29

Two more students received their promotion to yellow belt at the Ten No Kishi class on Wednesday 9/29.

Chip Lambert and his son Gavin demonstrated their determination to progress at their belt test.  Congratulations to both of you!

Ten No Kishi holds classes at the DTMMS Center in Scottsdale Monday through Thursday evenings.  The Sweet Medicine SunDance Path gateway process of self-growth and development includes the development of physical mastery – and martial arts is an excellent discipline to support that.

Martial Arts Belt Promotions 9/22

Congratulations to our 3 new yellow belts: Annetta Luce, Gaeliel Apostolou, and Love A.

All 3 earned their promotion to yellow belt at Wednesday evening’s class, where they demonstrated their development of the striking, blocking and kicking basics, as well as several katas.

Any time a student tests, they demonstrate their willingness to see their level of skill and to continue learning.  We honor this in our new group of yellow belts.
