Our Philosophy Self defense is an innate God-given right. The ability to protect ones life is fundamental. We help you enhance your ability in this area by teaching you martial arts skills to help you survive a deadly encounter. We, Sensei Brian Simmons and Gigi Simmons, are dedicated to sharing our passion of martial arts. We believe in cultivating a life of freedom of mind, body and spirit. There is no substitute for in-person training with an instructor. All content is for adults 18+ and not intended for children/minors. Martial arts training can be dangerous, even deadly, practice at your own risk. Shin Gan Dojo, Sensei Brian Simmons and Gigi Simmons do not accept any responsibility for your actions. We do not endorse violence. We teach self defense to help you be better prepared to save your life or the lives of others. We provide in-person Private Lessons and Group Classes.
