From a blog post dated 16th November 2008:
Hey everybody, just got done participating in a seminar at our gym on Saturday, and let me tell you it was a real eye opener.
The man teaching it was Richard Dimitri of Canada, he is the founder of Senshido,a realistic based self defense system who's primary directive is enhancing your survivability.
He came to teach a "Close Quarter Conceptual Tool" that really works for the street, this tool is called "The Shredder" and let me tell you it will put fear and terror in the hearts of the violent if they encounter it.
Now don't get me wrong, Rich is a very nice person and went above and beyond to teach us this valuable information and he did it without any ego or bravado.
As a matter of fact right up front he told all of us that if we just came here to learn new techniques to fight and kick someones ass, then we were at the wrong seminar.
There were many Law Enforcement Personnel as well as Martial Artists participating at the seminar and they all enjoyed the information that was taught that day.
As for me and my students, we were all impressed with what Rich brought to the table and let me tell you it takes allot to impress them.
After going over the physiological and behavioral concepts of the "Shredder" we got into the physical aspects by learning through progressive drills demonstrated by Rich and his assistant Ted Williams.
Then we would work the drills with at least three different partners and even Rich himself, to get the concepts down.
The great thing about the "Shredder" is that you can add it to your present fighting system no matter what it is immediately and not miss a step.
Rich was constantly working with everyone correcting any mistakes while performing the progressive "Shredder" drills.
He even extended the seminar to make sure everyone got the "Shredder" down and answered every question asked.
For those who have never experienced the "Shredder" get to one of Rich's seminars as fast as you can and learn this life saving tool or get the DVD's and manual.
Don't just learn to survive, learn to prevail.
