Short and Long term live-in personal growth programs

Martial Arts Travel & Training Adventures = Spirit


spirit-2cWe refer to Spirit as Life-Spirit and our definition is: Spending quality time with others in the great outdoors.

Being part of the Martial Science is a lot more than just learning the martial arts. A unique way to look at us would be as Ninja Scouts (as in Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts).  We encourage students to get together for adventures that include hiking, camping, climbing, travel, multiple terrain training and more. This is one of the reasons we run our camps in places like Thailand and run adventure programs in National Parks like Yosemite or Travel and Training programs in New Zealand.

You can take a step closer to nature and take part in adventures that will last a life time.

A large part of the Martial Science is devoted to the outdoors and outdoor activities.  As children we spent much of our time exploring and discovering. We want to recapture and maintain that healthy attitude we had when we were young. Life should include fun and games, regular adventures, and new experiences that combine both the world and humanity.

To be happy, we need to be challenged. We need to set goals and strive towards their achievement.

In keeping with our desire to seek out and overcome obstacles students get together for outdoor adventure. Travel and Adventure is a great addition to your Martial Arts training. It is best if you have and maintain a healthy outdoor adventure attitude along with a respect for nature and the living world that surrounds us.

spirit-1cYou can get together with other students and practice everything you need to know to be a confident and competent mountaineer. Everything from tying knots to using technical gear.

With other adventurers you can get hands on experience in many of the worlds best climbing locations like – Yosemite, Joshua Tree or how about climbing on a tropical island in Thailand?

Rock climbing offers each one of us a challenge and opportunities for working as a team. This challenge is what we believe to be the healthiest form of competition.

You are competing within yourself, not other people.

One of the great things about rock climbing is it truly allows for living in the moment. To live in the now. When you are on the side of a rock face, your focus in on exactly what is happening right then and there. It is truly and enlightening experience. Rock climbing is also a great excuse to get outside and travel with a group of like minded people who are looking for some adventure. Whether you are an absolute beginner just starting out or an expert climber there is always something for everyone.

Many of our students were introduced to Rock Climbing through CMS or the Martial Science and then went on to include it as a regular activity into their lives. Some were even able to get jobs as rock climbing instructors.

No outdoor adventure program is complete without a moderate amount of hiking and camping. Although camping will be included on a number of our other activities, the traditional hike-camp-hike-camp strategy will be implemented.

We will designate locations of interest and hike to them. There will be easy hikes and difficult hikes. We will have comfortable camp settings and we will have survival camp settings. Be prepared for both.

spirit-4cThere may also be a number of other activities such as:

  • Basketball
  • Grappleball
  • Volleyball
  • Swimming
  • Mountainbiking
  • Motocross
  • Rafting
  • Kayaking
  • Picnics & Parties

All activities provide a little adventure and no two programs are the same. But in the definition of RTMS and our goals, we use Adventure as way to describe our current lifestyle. The word is spoken to represent the following:

  • Growth
  • Challenge
  • Self-confidence
  • Discovery
  • Exploration
  • Travel
  • Youthfulness
  • Goals
  • Living natural
  • Being happy

You may begin to understand that Adventure is not just a word, but something far more spiritual. If you have the Adventure Spirit, you will feel right at home with the all of our programs.

The purpose of our program is to get out and explore with a group while developing life skills through training in the martial arts. On the Travel & Training program students will have the opportunity to be out and about on a daily basis. These days include biking, hiking, scrambling, camping, and other outdoor adventures like rock climbing, bungee jumping, kayaking and rafting. Since we focus on the martial arts you will be expected to work with us on adventure trips with other members. We will do our best to ensure that things run smoothly.

spirit-5c“Discover how you can travel to unique locations and not only have a great adventure, but also learn a new skill that will enhance your overall life spirit.”

In addition to our live-in martial arts training camps, we also offer the option of taking a 2 week adventure travel and training course.  These programs are great for people that want to get out, but may not have the time to invest more than a few weeks.  In addition to the great locations that we travel to – students have a choice to also learn a new skill while they are on their adventure.  Some of these skills include but are not limited to:

  • Martial Arts (whether you want to learn self-defense or how to use a sword we can help)
  • Winjitsu (mental martial arts for self-confidence, overcoming fears and more)
  • Memory (learn the easi-a memory system for improving your academic and vocational power)

Students on our U-CAN California Tour will train at the beach, hike through popular movie sets and dodge slots in Las Vegas. Expect to spend time at various National Parks as well as getting the chance to develop your leadership skills by teaching what you learn to other students. In addition to California Tours we organize travel and training programs in Thailand, New Zealand, Mexico, Europe, and Hawaii.  To learn more about the Southwest United States Tour or some of the locations outside the contiguous United States – fill out the sign up form and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

Mixed Martial Arts & Realistic Self-Defense = Body


body-6cMost members will be joining our program for training in the Martial Science – Modern Ninjitsu. Since this is our first goal, it is important that we meet all of our students expectations. In order to do this, we feel it is important to teach all areas of the martial arts. This will include a variety of training and philosophies that are:

  • Effective
  • Complete
  • Exciting

The Martial Science / Ninjitsu is a combination of effective usable principles that makes it into an elite system. Students who take part in this intensive program will be trained in the system from and programs that Rick Tew’s Martial Science / Ninjitsu has to offer.  This program is available for beginning to advanced students and adventurers alike.

body-5cMembers also participate in exclusive “Sensei Seminars” where Sensei Tew teaches a solid amount of skills and techniques in a unique environment.

The following is a small list of what your Ninja Training can expect at The Camp/College of Martial Science:

  • Training on various terrain

This is just a small list to inform those who have not read through the RTMS training programs. A variety of the Martial Science training will be taught during your travel program.

We are capable of teaching all levels and ranks regardless of age or previous martial arts background. For more information regarding the Martial Science, refer to the RTMS page.

The basic techniques of Tew’s Martial Science encompass a wide range of activities and instruction that are both realistic and effective. Body movements, punches, kicks, rolls, and falls are all integral components of hand-to-hand combat. Eventually, after several years of training, you will begin to develop your own style that is tailored to your personal strengths and weaknesses. If your dream is to become an instructor and to help teach and travel with Rick Tew’s Martial Science and TTT then you should consider our Total Warrior program or our Teach in Europe course which gets you started in only 2 months.

body-9cIf you focus on gaining at least one level every two months, you can be teaching in less than 1 year.  However, you are allowed to begin teaching up to your certified level.  Each level includes two skills from the following 9 areas of focus:

  1. Stance’s
  2. Roll’s
  3. Fall’s
  4. Strike’s
  5. Kick’s
  6. Body Movement
  7. Knowledge (mind)
  8. Combat and Self-defense strategies
  9. Weapon’s

RTMS is not simply a sport or style of martial art. It is a Martial Science and a way of life. Its strength is based on the student having an open mind. You, as this student, will train in many different areas, techniques, and fields under the guidance of mind, body, and spirit . If a warrior knows only one style, it will be easy for his enemy to determine how he/she will move, think, and attack. If a warrior knows many arts and adapts them to his/her changing environment, he/she will be an unpredictable and formidable opponent in any situation – what we call a “Total Warrior.”

The training you will endure is a vehicle to achieving an improved self-worth. Our motives are drawn from our desires for happiness, freedom, and adventure. The RTMS way of life will always be with you in training or in spirit. We look forward to sharing with you the adventures and joys of a lifetime and welcome you to the organization dedicated to giving you the best.

Winjitsu The Mental Martial Art = Mind Control Skills


We really believe in the Mind, Body, Spirit approach for overall success. Even though training in the Martial arts  offers a high level of joy and excitement, we also need focused mental growth. One of the ways that we provide this focus and growth is through a system Rick Tew has developed and what he calls WINJITSUthe mental martial art.
mind-1cIn the martial arts you learn self-defense to help prepare you for a situation that might be required for survival.  It is a basic human need to feel protected.  But in today’s world, with our challenges being more mental than physical, you are indeed your own worst enemy.

In this day and age, your mental skills will take you a lot further than your physical skills.  This is unless, of course, you are among the 1% that has made a success out of putting a ball through a hoop.  But even these top-ranked athletes will tell you that their ability to perform is largely based on their mental skills; their “Mental Martial Arts,” and this is exactly what we share in our programs.

Survival in this day and age is based on our quality of living, our balance of needs and how we feel.

mind-4cWe all could benefit from the Mental Martial Arts for survival in today’s world. Getting a better job (for example) is part of your modern day plan for survival.  Improving your life will improve your quality of living.  Since we don’t have the external worries of a neighboring tribe, it is replaced with more internal enemies like self-doubt, a lack of interest and fear.

Rick Tew has compiled a system of mental martial arts to battle these mental demons and give you the skills needed to combat daily challenges and achieve your goals.

“If there was any one area or skill that I have learned that has helped me the most in training, traveling or living a life I love, I would have to say it would the mind-set skills taught in Winjitsu”  -Rick Tew

Winjitsu is all about improving your life skills.  Here is a breakdown of the five sections that make up this system of mental martial arts:
