What is ShinJitsu ?


Shinjitsu Kanji Jpeg red*ShinJitsu: Has been designed to be a practical method of Self empowerment. It is an amalgamation of concepts and methods drawn from key aspects of both the *Healing Arts and the Martial Arts.

The aim of ShinJitsu to help participants refine and harmonise the three aspects of Self (Body, Mind, and Spirit) on multiple levels. This integrated approach allows you to be active participant in the process of reinventing yourself, not just a passive recipient of information.

The aims of ShinJitsu training are:

  • To teach a core skillset of effective self protection and situational awareness skills.
  • To enhance physical, mental, and perceptual abilities using a Martial Arts ~ Healing Arts format.
  • To help participants move beyond their personal fears, doubts, and self imposed limitations.
  • To help develop a greater harmony of Body, Mind and Spirit.
  • To have fun in the process.

For ease of learning ShinJitsu training separated into three distinct but intertwined expressions: The Body, Mind and Spirit. 

Body ( I move) ~ Mind ( I think) ~ Spirit ( I am)

The Body (I move): 

Spacial awareness, breath, and intention invested in the flow physical movement as an expression of being-ness: Becoming fully engaged in the “Now” of the three-dimensional world by the physical mechanisms of “I do”.

Watch-words: Breath, intention, and movement as one fluid expression of Self.

The Mind (I think):

Stilling the Mind and harmonizing left brain logic with right brain imagination. Experiencing the unfettered, coordinated interplay of the left (creativity) and right (logic) hemispheres of the brain as a direct expression of fluid thought and co-ordinated perception.

Watch-words: Developing clarity of thought and intention through an unfettered  presence of Mind.

The Spirit (I am)

Refining our senses where we can directly experience the inherent life essence that flows through all things. This essence is known as the “Tao”: The Universal force of creation that transmutes energy into matter and consciousness into experience. This direct experience of divine essence changes the way you experience and express yourself on all levels.

Watch-words: Developing a deep knowing through your own direct experience.

Why a co-ordination of these aspects is important:


By developing an understanding and proficiency these three connected areas we can create a way to heal the divisions and conflicts within ourself. This in turn opens the door to developing a deep sense of peace and a sense of connection to ourselves and our surroundings. Inner peace and a sense of self confidence changes the way you act and react both within yourself and towards others.

This type of deep inner change ripples outward. Therefore we our life by changing ourselves first.
