Every human being lives a unique life. Your personal histories are different than other’s. Your combination of values and approaches to life are different than other’s. Therefore, your personal path to Wholeness, Well-being, and the Love you long for may also be different than other’s.

Confidently develop the Depth of who You are in the Safety of our Dojo
The word ‘dojo’ means ‘way place’ – a place where one studies The Way (in this case The Way of the Heart). A dojo is a training ground, a temple, a sanctuary, and most of all, a safe environment in which you can explore yourself and all areas of your life.
Physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual safety are the cornerstones of all dojos. As you feel this safety throughout your Shin Dao experiences, the deeper art of finding your way begins.
Experience the FUN of Celebrating Your Successes!
In the traditions of western martial arts schools, training is offered as a system of ‘belts’ (or ‘sashes’, as they are identified in Karate) as a way of differentiating between the various levels of training and progression. Each belt/sash level builds on the lessons, practices and skills learned of the previous level.
Within the Shin Dao System of Transformation™, each Belt/Sash level moves you deeper and deeper into Clarity and Confidence about who You are, what Your Calling and Your Path is.
Every belt/sash level provides you with life-enhancing tools and amazing opportunities to uncover – or in some cases rediscover – your own inner truth.
As you hone your Skills, develop your Talents, achieve greater levels of Achievement, Success and Personal Satisfaction in your life, we Celebrate with you by awarding you with your colored Sash. (More details on each Sash level below).
Feel Honored, Respected and Celebrated through beautiful ceremony.
It is commonly accepted in the martial arts that you can tell the level of technical, as well as spiritual, development of an individual simply by observing them bow. Each time you bow or otherwise exchange a greeting, you have a unique opportunity to express fully from your heart the respect and caring you hold for others. This is your true nature.
