About Personal Security Course (PSC)

Self-defense is the ability to do the best you can when protecting yourself or others. Too often people confuse self-defense with the illusion of television action stunt scenes. You can not expect to be 100% effective in combat. The purpose of self-defense is to increase your chance of survival.

You will learn about the following:

  • Mindset for self-defense
  • Breakdown of hostile situations
  • Realities of combat
  • Natural reactions
  • Positioning and stances
  • Use of the environment around you
  • Body movement
  • Use of strikes and kicks in self-defense
  • Vital points
  • Self-defense techniques
  • Defense against common weapons

About Rick Tew’s Martial Arts System

Rick Tew’s Martial Science (RTMS) is not just another Martial Art. RTMS is geared towards the enhancement of Mind, Body and Spirit and it is a Life-Style. We focus on developing a strong character, self-esteem, life enhancing goals, self-confidence, self-discipline, physical conditioning and building knowledge through the martial arts experience.

The Martial Science is an open-minded multi-martial art system that encompasses almost every aspect of the martial arts, with fun entertaining techniques and realistic self-defense tactics to make it a well-rounded program for beginners and advanced Students alike. Rick Tew’s Martial Science is a combination of effective, usable, realistic martial arts principles that make it into its elite system. It is a Modern Ninjitsu system. Because students are not expected to conform to an art, they can use a scientific approach to being their best. A typical martial art can be limited to its tradition, yet RTMS is focused more on the student rather than its master. It is ever changing and it is not limited to the approach of having any labels, set kata’s or “do as I do” training.

The student is in charge of his/her training and Self-Powered. 9 out of 10 participants want to join our program for training in the Martial Arts or Modern American Ninjitsu. Since this is a priority for our Students, it is important that we work hard to meet these expectations. We do this by teaching all areas of the martial arts. This includes a multi-martial arts training and concepts that are:

  • Realistic for use
  • Fun to learn
  • Interesting to do

Rick Tew’s Martial Science and Modern American Ninjitsu is a total combination of effective and applicable principles that makes it into a unique system for both beginners and advanced students alike. The foundation of Rick Tew’s Martial Science includes a wide range of techniques that is both practical and effective. There are 5 Ranking Levels to Instructor status. Each level includes two skills from the following 9 areas of focus:

  • Stances
  • Rolls
  • Falls
  • Strikes
  • Kicks
  • Body Movement
  • Knowledge (mind)
  • Combat and Self-defense strategies
  • Weapons

The martial arts training you will endure is a path to achieving a greater self-worth.

Mind

Even though training in the martial arts offers a high level of joy and excitement, you also need focused mental growth. One of the ways that this focus and growth are provided is through a system Rick Tew has developed and calls Winjitsu, the mental martial art. In the martial arts, you learn self-defense to help prepare yourself for a situation that might be required for survival. In today’s world, with the challenges being more mental than physical, you are indeed your own worst enemy.

In this day and age, your mental skills will take you a lot further than your physical skills. You are going to learn how to reach your full potential and how to be a black belt in what you do. This area of mental training will focus on all the information available today that will help you become the best you can be. Mr. Tew suggests you learn about balance, mind control, physiology, and the neurosciences. Everything you need to know to gain control of your life and to build self-confidence, self-esteem, self-discipline, self-power, self-control, and self-image. Winjitsu also teaches you how to overcome fear, doubt, negativity, stress, and laziness.

Spirit

Here, spirit is referred to as life-spirit, which means spending quality time with others in the great outdoors. Being part of the NinjaGym program is a lot more than just learning the martial arts. You are encouraged to get together for adventures that include hiking, camping, climbing, travel, multiple terrain training, and more. A large part of the martial science is devoted to the outdoors and outdoor activities. As children, one spends a lot of time exploring and discovering. The goal is to recapture and maintain that healthy attitude. Life should include fun and games, regular adventures, and new experiences that combine both the world and humanity.

Testimonials

  • Review by Dr. Roy Martina from Netherland

    "I am a 6th degree Black Belt in Karate and a 7 year undefeated champion of Europe, now I am an M.D., acupuncturist, author and lecturer. I have known Rick Tew for 20 years, he was one of my instructors and sparring partners. He is top of the charts in dedication, motivation and inspiration. Training with him is life changing and profound. I would recommend him over everyone else because of his diversity and mastery of the spirit of Martial Arts. He is also a gifted and impressive speaker and can mesmerize any crowd with his speeches. Words are not good enough to describe this man. Experience him"

  • Review by Jeff Thom from Canada

    "I’m certain that if you attend you would have learned and realized useful things that would affect your over all quality and level of success in life. You will have learned how to get over your fears, learned to face challenges , you would have learned how to become more of a leader. CMS produces which means that although the students may come here starting at ground zero – if they simply choose not to quit, not to give up on themselves, they will eventually get there."

  • Review by Kevin Odgen from Wisconsin, USA

    "Its a chance of a lifetime to get away from all the stresses of life and focus everything that you have, on your training and self improvement. What I like the most is the variety of the system which involves everyday life training with how to be healthy in mind, body, spirit and nutrition."

    NinjaGym website, edited

  • Review by Richard Nelson from Texas, USA

    "The only thing I think I could really have to add to all of this is that CMS is an Adventure in life. You might only get so many invitations to take such an adventure when you’re young before you get caught up in the struggle of life as it is today. For me, CMS was a childhood dream to be a Ninja. Other people probably can relate to this, because Gen X grew up in the 80’s which was the king domain of Ninja’s being glorified thru multimedia. Because your focus determines your reality in life. If you choose to focus on the bad parts, then that is all you will see. But if you take those small nuggets that are just pure fun, happiness, and love…roll them into one big image of what you want, and focus on it.That is what you’ll see no matter where you are."

    "Inspiring, dedicated, enlightened and real all come to mind when I think of Rick Tew. His work ethic is first rate and his commitment to live fully and truthfully is contagious. But even more important than any of the above, his loyalty and support as a friend is incomparable."

  • Review by Ronnie Lopez from New Zealand

    "I can vouch that Rick really does what he preaches, he walks the talk rather than talks the talk. He is very congruent in what he says and passionate as a result because he has actually lived it. He has a genuine energy about him, and that energy definitely comes from a place of contribution and creating value for others."

  • Review by Kevin from Oregon, USA

    "I’ve worked with Rick Tew on and off for a few years now. To this day, I am still amazed at his ability to motivate others to take action toward their individual goals without losing sight of the team’s goals. This in my opinion, makes Mr. Tew such a dynamic and effective leader. I’ve personally witness how he has used his talents in the Martial Arts to not just define his life, but to enrich it and those around him. Mr. Tew has created personal development courses based off his unique experiences and most importantly, these courses are able to be modified to the individual. This to be a very rare trait to find nowadays."

  • Review by Jabez Parson from USA

    "Most of my Mind Body Spirit learning took place when I began reading Rick Tew’s articles on his web site. I have learned mental conditioning and mind-body anchoring techniques that I have been using since. I learned to be in total control of my emotions whether I wanted to be happy or depressed. Many of my spiritual qualities were strengthened during CMS as my mind and body were being conditioned."

  • Review by Ross Kottmyer from Virginia, USA

    "There’s more to this experience than just martial arts. An equal part of the program helping you to see the areas in which your attitudes are negative or thoughts are inflexible or closed. Be ready for having these things subtly brought to light. For those unprepared, it can be unnerving. For those willing to grow and change, it’s encouraging."

    NinjaGym website, edited

  • Review by Josiah Lewis from USA

    "Go for it! Don’t let anyone hold you back from doing what you want to do with your life! Attending CMS is the adventure of a lifetime, so if you think you have what it takes, just do it! You’ll be happy you did. I experienced more than any normal person should in 2 months. I was tested both physically and mentally. I experienced some pretty serious martial arts training."

  • Review by Walid M

    "I think from my perspective as a student taking private lessons it is intense. We train daily for couple of hours, usually 3 to 5 in addition of course to practice I do on my own to mentally and physically reflect for the next day. Weekends are off but again we could practice outdoor sometimes in them. So, there is also flexibility to the program. Usually,"

    "every lesson there is something new, if not more than one thing, that I have learned."

    ""

    "Training follows a systematic organized approach, starting off with stances, following into falls, rolls, strikes and punches, kicks and ending with weapons. Sometimes we may shake things up a little depending on the day and the flow of training. So, generally I never find myself bored even though I am training privately. It is actually feeling very intense and focused in this way to perfect every move as much as possible in such short time available."

    ""

    "For every lesson also, we make a video recording of it for Home Study Program, to support my learning after class, but even after the entire training period here in Bangkok. This is very useful as at anytime I can log in my account and look at myself and memic Sensei Rick's body movement or adhere to the movement I already do in case I have executed it correctly in the video."

    ""

    "As a person who is doing his PhD in behavioral studies and psychology, as well as having completed several training camps in Europe, I could attest that the training I am having here is truly positively challenging in all ways for one to master skills, knowledge and mindset growth in such short period of time - and then only with practice that perfection comes."

  • Review by Kris Butler from Canada

    "Mentally, I learned that there are many different ways of thinking and a strong result of those thoughts are your action and success. Much of what you get out life and what life is going to offer you is dependent on how you think. "

    "Physically, I have learned more than I can put into this response. I suppose to sum it up. I can do things with my body that I never new I could do. I have surprised and surpassed my own expectations many times over. The best part is that the learning never stops and there is always a new level reach and to kick your butt and make you want more. "

    "Spiritually, I have had the chance to be a part of something much bigger than myself. I have been and continue to be a part of a team of people that are dedicated to human development and to getting more out of their lives and themselves. "

  • Review by Marco van Der Weijden from the Netherlands

    "Expect to be taught a highly effective form of martial arts. Next, is that you can expect to have a lot of fun doing the outdoor activities like hiking, mountain biking, and outdoor camping. The unique thing about NinjaGym is that it is open to new ideas and techniques and therefore ever growing; it encompasses a wide range of activities from ground fighting to rock climbing. You can also expect to feel the sense of group spirit when you go through all the experience together."

  • Review by Otwin Cyrus from the Netherlands

    "It is diverse, but simple, fun, challenging, indoors, and outdoors. It is more than just punching and kicking. You get to travel and see amazing places. You get to develop skills that might never be noticed. You learn to be a team player but have enough space to express your own creativity."

  • Review by Carlos Puente from Mexico

    "Other martial arts schools only teach a fighting system like a competition and non-realistic self-defense techniques; here, you learn real combat training applied, such as full contact sparring and situations for real self-defense, not to mention weaponry, outdoor training, rock climbing, and more."
