Shoto-chi: The meaning behind the name!

Are you curious as to where the name “Shoto-Chi” came from?

Imagine yourself walking along a trail surrounded by pine trees. While you’re walking you feel the fallen pines under your feet. You feel the gentle breeze of the morning air against your skin. You hear the whispering of the wind through the trees. In the distance you smell the ocean waves gently stroking the shore. You feel inspired to do great things and feel as one with the circulating life energy that surrounds you.

Shoto-Chi means “Pine Wave Energy”

Curious as to what Shoto-Chi is?

Founded in 1990 Shoto-Chi has become one of the most dynamic arts out there.It is a unique art specializing in the realistic approach to conflict resolution through the understanding of human behaviour. It does not teach other how to fight, but how to resolve conflict. The art uses psychology and effective communication techniques to achieve results. As in all martial arts there is a physical side, but wait…. The physical side is not like conventional martial arts. Shoto-Chi is extremely effective and diverse. The techniques taught within the art are for real life, meaning that what is learnt is taken into all areas of our lives not just conflict. Most conflicts are actually with ourselves! How we manage our internal conflicts affects how we manage those external conflicts. Our power is within us all, not from what others give us or attempt to extract. So yes, Shoto-Chi is unique.
