Martial Arts Training Philosophy

Mr. Sandhu’s philosophy regarding martial art training is that it is an integrated, comprehensive part of a person’s lifestyle.  Training strengthens the body, mind, and spirit. This is not to be confused as a religious statement in either Eastern or Western ideology.

The spirit is the core beliefs, internal strength and fortitude of a human being. 
Martial training forges and advances this spirit to cultivate a person to be a good person in their family and community. Mr. Sandhu and students of his GI YU DOJO come to the Dayton-Reds Rookie Success League to share these beliefs and to encourage our Reds Rookies to lead a respectful and productive life in COOPERATION with one another and for country.
