What we offer

Confidence to Succeed

Every person faces challenges in life. Most people fear those challenges, especially when they come to frightening situations such as death. We believe every person should learn the value of life and death and come to a confidence that they can be humble and gentle in the face of dangerous situations and anxiety.

Our Mission

teach the most comprehensive and simple methods inline with the best methodologies
Various methods have been imployed with self-defense and combat from the perspectives of many different ideals. We value only the effective and most universally true methods. When there is a better, faster, more true method, we will encorporate it and blend it across all teachings so that the system of Tongsau is balanced.

Learn the way of every Art

We believe great teachers exist everywhere and should not be limited to one school or one way to understand something. In most martial art schools a type of cult begins. We do not support these types of organizations and find it necessary to combat those ideas in our own school constantly. We feel that knowing the minds tendancy to fall into hypnotic suggestions is great and life is a constant battle of dillusional contructs.
