The growing demands for affiliations and certifications have been too great for me to ignore and I have been turning people down and sending them to Senshido International’s new Team leader Wes Derequito for official certifications and to join the international team, as I had decided not to offer a certification program any longer.
This however turned many away from both me and Senshido as what many seemed to want was to be trained by me directly as I am understandably the founder (though logically, that shouldn’t be any deterrent?) but because I no longer identify with the label/faction/icon/entity that has become Senshido, I am now simply a ‘free agent’ teaching pure and applied self defense/personal protection and thus, offer no ‘certification’ program.
Though I am still not offering any kind of certification, what I am offering to those interested in teaching parts of, or my entire ‘curriculum’ (for lack of a better word), is the opportunity to train with me personally for however long a time it takes you to learn the materials (everyone is different and so there is no set block of hours) to the point where we both feel you are comfortable and ready to teach them.
The only cost/price is the one for the training. There are no certification fees, no renewal fees, no other fees whatsoever other than the per hour private instruction time charged. You will not be mentioned on my website, nor be a part of ‘my team’ (as I have no team), nor receive any kind of signed certificate or official document other than a blessing stating the following of which you could publicly advertise as you see fit:
“(Your Name) has privately trained with Senshido International founder Richard Dimitri for (amount of hours) and has his full blessings to teach and share all of that he has learned throughout.”
If this is something that resonates with you, then please contact me via email, Facebook or telephone at 514-712-2942 for further details and bookings. If however, an official ‘Senshido International Certification’ and being part of the Senshido International team is what you are looking for, please hit up Wes Derequito at www.Senshido.com
Thank you and all the best.
