Training Philosophy

Sensei Sandhu’s philosophy regarding martial art training is that it is an integrated, comprehensive part of a person’s lifestyle.  Training strengthens the body, mind, and spirit. This is not to be confused as a religious statement in either Eastern or Western ideology. 
The spirit is the core beliefs, internal strength and fortitude of a human being. 
Martial training forges and advances this spirit to cultivate a person to be a good person in their family and community.
