Yoga cultivates health and wellbeing (physical, emotional, mental and social) through the regular practice of a range of many different techniques, including postures and movement, breath awareness and breathing exercises, relaxation and concentration, self-inquiry and meditation.
The beauty of combining martial arts with yoga practice is, that although they sound like polar opposites, they actually are very synergistic and complementary to each other. For example, both are based on teachings of mental and physical development, breathing correctly, respect for self and others, and never ending improvement. Yoga supports your martial arts practice with advantages like increased flexibility, endurance, core strength, recovery, and balance. And vice versa, martial arts supports your yoga practice with advantages like increased physical intensity, self-confidence, overall body strength, self-defense skills, working with partners, and fun.
What do many world class athletes, scientists, biologists and "normal" people that simply want to lose weight and get the best out of life, in common? They follow the Keto Diet.
On a “normal” American diet, carbohydrate intake is high (about 40-60% of calories) while fat intake, and especially saturated fat, is limited. Diets high in carbohydrate have the effect of elevating blood sugar and a hormone called insulin over time. The chronically higher levels of blood sugar and insulin result in a condition called insulin resistance or metabolic syndrome which can result in constant hunger, weight gain and a long list of disease outcomes. In contrast, carbohydrate intake on a keto diet is only about 2-4% of calories. When carb intake is low, meals are delicious and satiating. Hunger goes away, and more importantly, this dietary change has some powerful and beneficial metabolic effects on the human body, in part because it lowers blood sugar and insulin levels.
When carbohydrates (sugar and starch) are digested, they are broken down into blood sugar (glucose) in the body. More carbohydrate intake results in higher blood sugar. If we reduce carb intake and instead eat more fat and protein, it results in a switch in metabolic pathways from using sugar as a primary fuel to burning stored and dietary fat as a primary fuel. As more fat is burned, some of it is converted in ketone bodies. As blood glucose and insulin levels drop and ketone levels rise, muscle tissue, including the heart, use the available fatty acids in the bloodstream as fuel and the brain begins using ketones as an energy source. Being in this metabolic state of "nutritional ketosis" (blood sugar is low and ketone levels are moderate) has some powerful benefits. There is strong research evidence that low carb, high fat metabolic diets are effective for treating the following medical conditions:
Ketogenic diets allow you to eat real foods in the form of natural fats and protein (meat, fish, poultry) but severely restrict the amount of carbohydrates (sugars and starches) you are allowed each day.
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.

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.

Each level includes two skills from the following 9 areas of focus:
The martial arts training you will endure is a path to achieving a greater self-worth.
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.
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.
You will train 5 days a week with weekends off and private group classes are 3-5 hours each day. The schedule usually is focused on a different Level of the system each day.
All students will get a levels guide when they register as well as a complete system and philosophy guide.
