In the last weekend of October 2013 I traveled from The Netherlands (that’s where I live) to train at To-Shin Do Wirral. My experience during the whole weekend was great. On day 1 I was welcomed at the Airport by Mr. Hesketh, the Instructor, and the Trainer of the Dojo. In the afternoon they had arranged a 3 hours private session for me with a training partner, and in the evening we had a special dinner with members of the Dojo to celebrate the Dojo’s 10th year anniversary. On day 2 there was training in a special 5 hours long seminar.

When it comes to high quality, uplifting, motivating and clear instruction as well as sincere interest in a student’s growth and a sense of building a community then Mr. Hesketh and his team of Trainers and Coaches absolutely live up to my expectation.

Hilversum, The Netherlands.

Frequently Asked Questions

Email your questions to Questdojo@yahoo.co.uk

I am in my late 40′s, am i too old to train?
Age is not an issue when it comes to studying Stephen K. Hayes To-Shin Do.
We have students training at our Dojo who are in their late 50′s and they have no problems.
In some cases the younger students have trouble keeping up with them!

Do i have to be super fit like the martial artists i see in the movies?
    No, You don’t need to be super fit to study To-shin Do. During your classes we will
assist you in improving your fitness and flexibility.

How do i know you are the real thing? I have trained with other instructors who claim to be the top guy of this or grandmaster of that.
I would not have any problem with a potential student checking my authenticity with
the Hombu Dojo in Dayton, Ohio.

I have heard people refer to you as being the founder of To-Shin Do in the UK and Europe?
I am not the founder of anything, lets get that cleared up. The only founder of To-shin Do worldwide is An-Shu Stephen K. Hayes and Co-founder An-Shu Rumiko Hayes.
As a teacher of Stephen K. Hayes To-Shin Do I wouldn’t be so egotistical to make such a claim, as would anyone who has spent time training within this art.
I often say that I feel privileged to be given the opportunity by Mr & Mrs Hayes to teach
this art. I never consider it a right to do so.

Is the training safe or can i expect injuries that will stop me from working?
The safety of the student is of the utmost importance. We train in a very safe manner
where students work within their own comfort zone and at their own speed of

Is To-Shin Do a sport or will it protect me in real life?
To-Shin Do is a reality based self-protection system to develop skills to deal with not just physical situations but also emotional and mental attacks.

I have an old back injury that does not bother me in normal life, but prevents me in doing high kicks. Will this be a problem?
As with any past injuries we would recommend that you consult a doctor before taking on any physical activity. As we don’t tend to attempt high kicks your back problem shouldn’t be a problem and as with anything you feel uncomfortable attempting during training you can inform the instructor.
