Toso Kune Do provides lessons that can be applied to everyday life. How you deal with people and situations in life. How you carry and position yourself for success. It is a way, through experiencing martial arts, of being positive and motivated to improve one’s own life.
The Toso Kune Do system exposes individuals to a solid base from which the individual can effectively pursue their own path to martial arts excellence. This is done by presenting a breadth of philosophies, concepts and techniques with enough depth to inspire the most effective and direct paths to personal success.
The variety within the curriculum keeps the individual’s pursuit interesting and motivated. Also having an appreciation and understanding of other cultures fosters respect and harmony to society and can enrich one’s own life experiences. It also has various concepts and disciplines to seek truth in self expression. Toso Kune Do is not unique in the sense that it also is an open system of techniques and concepts respecting and appreciating all martial art forms in order to provide guidance and perspective to self discovery in the martial arts. Seeking universal truths that transcend style and culture and gravitate towards absolute truths and understanding. Even transcending martial arts itself and existing in all facets of life.
Although the literal translation is “The way of the fighting fist”, the name represents more than just fighting. It represents the never ending journey and continual struggle for personal excellence.
