"Ten Shin" can be found within the positive side of our nature, the highest mental quality, bringing peace, happiness and harmony to human lives. Ten Shin initiates positive, productive and peaceful actions while restraining the negative side of ourselves. "Ichi Ryu" translates as one stream and the way through which all divided streams can join together as one.
The art of TSIR teaches the use of peaceful protection techniques in order to defend oneself. While there are many good techniques in martial arts, Ten Shin Ichi Ryu focuses on the mental aspects sometimes neglected in martial arts study along with energy flow, natural human reactions and non-aggressive techniques.
