To get the best out of martial arts, you have to dedicate yourself to it. You have to see it as a way of life, and not just a sport or a hobby. A true martial artist walks on two paths, he/she walks the path of the warrior, and the path of the scholar. This means that a true martial artist trains the body and mind for combat and to keep themselves in good health and condition, but he/she also seeks to gain more knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. They embody the way of the pen and the sword.
The Legion Program is designed for students that are serious about their martial art journey and wants to take it to the next level, not only as a practice, but as a way of life. This program allows you to join a group of like-minded people, who strive to develop their full potential and dedicate themselves to the martial way.

A SHIDO martial artist is a protector, a bringer of joy and light to those in darkness, and a guide to those who need it. They bring a positive change into the world around them, and they strive to make a difference. But in order to do these things effectively, a student must undertake proper training.
"The goal of the martial arts is not for the destruction of an opponent, but rather for self-growth and self-perfection. The practice of a martial art should be a practice of love - for the preservation of life, for the preservation of body, and for the preservation of family and friends." Dan Inosanto
