A MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER AND HEAD TRAINER
Welcome to Temple Martial Arts Training, the principal online venue through which I choose to spread Jiin Senshi Do, "The Way of the Temple Warrior." Before I go too far, I'd like to ask you a very important question:
Aside from Divine Union with God Almighty (which I hope tops your list), what do you want most in life?
While you think on that, please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Dave Brown; I'm 53-years old, I'm an apprentice of Jesus Christ, and I'm the founder of Jiin Senshi Do (JSD). JSD is an art devoted to the transformation of being through martial arts practice, holistic discipline, and meditative prayer. For nearly 40 years, I've immersed myself in these three elements—what I call "The Training Trinity." At their confluence, these elements (or streams) flow together as one life-giving river that invigorates every aspect of my soul.
I believe in many things. Chief among them, that transformation (or self-transcendence) is available to each of us. While we all want many things, the one I believe tops many lists is the desire to eliminate fear. Fear (or chronic, low-level anxiety) is the black plague of our day; and it's killing us by the millions. How many of us long to rid ourselves of such an enslaving condition of heart and mind? To be done with fear that we might feel free (in a really true sense) to pursue our dreams, live peacefully, and empty ourselves into those we love and care about most?
What about you? What do you want? Do you, like most of us, want to end fear in your life? If so, I have another question for you:
Are you willing to pay the price to get what you want?
If you are, I can help you. Be advised, though: Training in JSD is tough. It will cost you not just physically, but emotionally and spiritually. JSD is a set of holistically transformative practices; it is an art devoted to the nearly continuous processes of tearing down and rebuilding the body-mind composite. Eradicating fear from your life must be approached similar to the way you might attempt to drive a bear out of a cave. It's dangerous, scary (in and of itself), and it requires an all in, putting-to-flight kind of commitment. The commitment I'm talking about here is similar to the commitment one makes when jumping out of an airplane. Once you're out, there's really no getting back into the plane. You're either in the plane or your falling toward earth; you can't have it both ways. As much as I like pursuing "the middle way," there really is no middle ground in this arena. So I ask you again: Are you willing to pay the price to get what you want?
Every day, I pursue the evolution of my being. I do this by training at my limits, and I do it in every arena of life. A long time ago, I identified what I wanted and then went after it. Since then, I've paid the price: Every moment, of every day, with no days off. Today, I live without fear, and I'm happy—pretty much all the time.
What about you? Do you desire to feel and live similarly? To move beyond what's been keeping you from living-out the best version of yourself? If so, let's partner together and begin in this moment to create "the you" you long to be. If you desire personal or group training (and you live in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area of North Carolina), send me an email (using the online CONTACT form below), and I'll get back to you shortly. If you live out of the area, once the videos are up, I recommend enrolling in Set 1, "Creating the Boxer Within," of The Temple Elements Video Training Program. However we're able to connect, let's do so soon and begin working together to eradicate our fears and pursue lives of self-transcendence.
CU on the mat...
