These philosophies won’t clash with any faith that you may follow, but having control of your mind and emotions, especially when facing conflict, will give you a huge advantage as a martial artist.
Who today is teaching these or any philosophies alongside martial arts? Who is helping martial artists to develop from within through self development?
Next to nobody.
You don’t actually have to study Taoism, Buddhism, Zen (though it would be a good thing if you can). The point is that it’s about have an organised approach to self-development. Most of these philosophies have a lot of over-lap and the most important parts are common to each and also common to most Western self-development teachings! So as long as we’re learning something, we’re going in the right direction (no need to shave your head bald and walk around in orange robes)!
Having developed a much more fulfilling and deeper experience of my martial arts (and life in general), it is my how mission to help you to do the same.
Perhaps you find yourself in the same situation that I was in all those years ago?

Some of the endorsements I’ve had from leading martial artists around the World for my video downloads include:
“Over the holidays I had a very pleasant experience watching on Shotokan bunkai DVD. It is called Inside Bassai Dai created by Sensei Charlie Wildish, UK. I found the bunkai in it to be realistic and easy to learn. He demonstrates how some of the techniques are applied. I was particularly pleased to see the application for the double uchi uke (inside forearm blocks). He interprets them as a uke followed by a uraken”.
Shihan Kousaku Yokota: 8th Dan Shotokan Karate & Author.
“Shotokan has always been my base system, so it was fascinating for me to watch the Charlie Wildish DVD on Bassai Dai, and come away with so much new information about this powerful kata and its origins. I particularly like the historical element about Sokon Matsumura (who created the kata) and how, when & why he created the “grappling kata”. I got a lot from this DVD and highly recommend it”.
Geoff Thompson: 7th Dan, co-founder of the British Combat Association, author of 34 books, 5 multi award winning films and BAFTA winner
“This DVD delivers a down to earth and realistic look at the often misunderstood Kata of Karate. Simple to follow and easy to understand. It is great to see Charlie Wildish incorporating my ABC system of manstoppers in his Karate. It is a must have principle for any serious combat martial artist. Good work Charlie”
Kevin O’Hagan: 7th Dan Combat Ju Jutsu & 7th Dan British Combat Association.
“This video is unpretentious, straight forward, and focused on content instead of flashiness. As such I feel it does justice to the spirit of Karate”
Matt Apsokardu: 4th Dan Okinawan Kenpo Karate, USA.
From my Youtube Channel:
“Thank you, you know you have the best content on technique out there? I have watched 100s of videos and been in the Dojo nearly a year and no one comes even close to the clarity of the “fundamentals” as you do. No one is even close to your ability to explain and break things down. Simon Scher is the only one remotely close. Outstanding”.
“Finally someone who made me understand what kime really is”.
“Extremely valuable information. Had so many karate teachers, nobody taught this”.
“Essential and timely lesson! True Budo”!
