RTMS which is Rick Tew’s Martial Science is founded on the philosophy of Ninjitsu, the adventure of the Boy Scouts and the inspiration of motivational self-help programs. What Rick has done is created a program that combines these three life changing activities into one complete system of martial arts, called RTMS.
- Complete Martial Art System
- Outdoor Adventure
- Mind focus for personal growth
We call it, Mind – Body – Spirit. Every Student learns to integrate this concept through our specific programs and system.
- Rick Tew’s Martial Science
- Adventure in Yosemite National Park
- Winjitsu the mental martial art system
REALITY: It is unrealistic to believe you will be 100% effective in a situation requiring you to defend yourself or others.
Stick to the task until the task sticks to you
Beginners are many but enders are few
Honor, power, place and praise
Always comes to the one who stays
You can see images where Mr. Tew took a group of dedicated Students to Mexico on an all expense paid trip (they even earned an additional ticket to fly anywhere Alaska airlines flies just for being on this team). They followed Mr. Tew around as he shared the martial science. They were on TV with him, with the mayor with him and even got to dance with the Tecate girls on stage when Mr. Tew performed his demonstrations. They were able to participate in teaching the Police and be on the radio.
Rick is known for passing the benefits of the program over to his Students so that they can get the most out of an experience. The first time Rick went to Thailand to scope out Koh Phi Phi Island for CMS training, he paid the flights of two Students on his own birthday.
Rick invited a few Students to Hawaii and offered to pay half their tickets if they wanted to go the same time he did so he could explore the island of Kauai for possible training programs.
Rick flew 6 Students to Holland on his dime and placed one of them from Canada into a job (a home, income and plan) that Rick had set up for him so he could live and teach in Europe. That student is still there. Rick is always making outrageous offer for those willing to take the challenge.
Rick invited students from Holland paying plane tickets and let them stay in his house while taking a month off from his own schedule just to show them around. Even let them use his own vehicles and took them to places like Las Vegas, Yosemite National Park etc.
For anyone that has spent a long time with Rick they will have experienced many life-changing events as well as being pushed to explore the world around them.
One memory that Rick often shares is from his time when he first moved to Holland and started taking students to castles and outdoor locations like the vesting for training. One of his students said:
“Rick, I have seen more of my own country in the short time of being with you in your martial art program than I have in my whole life here.”
Student after student can recount the many adventures, conversations or committed extra-mile effort from Rick. Many Students can say that they have done more because or Rick paving the way for them.
When you take the time to really invest in yourself and in our program you are doing that with a person that is so passionate about the martial arts and training that he has been doing it his entire life.
There are many Master Miyagi type people in the world and Rick Tew is the one that embodies an American Ninja and offers great martial arts training, pushes you to grow, hangs out with you on adventures and still brings the mysticism of false beliefs back down to earth. He isn’t teaching you to kick but teaching you how to kick. He isn’t void of challenges so he knows what it is like to go through dark times, personal struggles and what to do when you are about to give up.
As a NERD Rick Likes to:
- Play video games
- Read like crazy
- Learn new skills
- Make websites
- Use a computer
- Be a life-coach
- Write books
- Chase dreams
- Watch Seinfeld-like shows
- Eat pizza
Rick is known by Students to organize weekend long LAN parties where he usually doesn’t sleep most of the 3 days. We gather on a Friday and fill the house full of food and snacks from Costco. Giant bowls of salsa, stacks of pizza and muffins galore. We have PC’s connected, Playstation games, board games, movies you name it and we take it all the way to Monday. It’s just FUN!!
Rick grew up when computers were coming into their own and he taught himself how to do HTML with a book and made his first website back when it was getting just getting known. He has been doing this since the beginning and it is what has taught him so much about business.
He has an immense passion for personal growth and wrote 5 books for a Mental Martial Art system that he calls Winjitsu. It was originally written as the Mind Martial Science for students to prepare before training. Many of its original principle you will see in modern books that followed Rick written level of freedom.

In Holland when there were posters needed for an event, Rick made them. Students can remember him going behind the counter in print shops to teach the salesperson how to use the printer to make a color poster. Almost any Student has a similar story like this.
Many of the students have learned hands on business skills just from the time they spent with Rick and most only a few months. Rick taught students how to edit videos, make DVD’s, how to use website editing programs (he used to write Tewtorials on these programs too). He’s just a big NERD. The list is rather large and if you are a nerd or if there is any part of you that didn’t fit in high school, you will have a lot in common with Rick.
From Rick’s Management course (at the time called the mind martial science) and training one of his students from Holland in these skills, he was able to break out of his shell and earn a management position and move to Switzerland. One of his major goals was to move out of Holland. Ask him to list some amazing adventures and Ricks program comes to mind.
As a NINJA Rick Likes to:
- Do full contact sparring and grappling
- Ride Kawasaki Ninja Motorcycles
- Rock climb (often freestyle)
- Do extreme hiking and camping
- Rock jump (don’t do this away from home)
- Take on major life challenges – like moving to new countries
- Kill himself in body weight training
What Rick has never been a fan of is feeding the EGO, though much of this page can appear to be doing just that. Rick doesn’t believe much in competitive sports because of the way that it promotes an EGO based mind-set. Rick created his programs so that he could spend quality-time doing amazing things with great people like YOU. An ego or competitive mind is focused on a selfish strategy. Though Rick could have taken many selfish opportunities, he usually sacrificed for the greater good. This doesn’t mean that you can’t train to be in the UFC if that is your dream. Rick will be a great coach regardless of your life’s passion. It’s just not the path that Rick wanted to take though we all have our personal goals.
His dream was to offer as many people a life-changing experience through the martial arts as possible. And he has given his life to it and welcomes you to join him for an adventure.
Rick Tew created the world’s first, live-in college of martial science that combined the true concepts of mind – body and spirit equally. When he was putting the program together, he was contemplating who he would allow onto his program.
At first, Rick was only going to allow people just like him. People that were healthy, skilled in the martial arts and looking for improvement. After much thought and contemplation Rick decided to go the opposite direction and take on people that were most likely not like him. The reasoning behind this was that if Rick was to grow as an Instructor he had to be more open minded.
Rick’s programs in the past were often pretty strict and really pushed students to look themselves in the mirror. At the same time, he was standing with them the entire way if not leading the way. Whether this was running students around a giant park as a warm up, taking them to the top of a waterfall or down the side of a giant rock cliff, Rick was there. Most of the photos you see of students training were taken by Rick Tew himself.
You don’t need to wait 10 years and you can get the same experience and find your path. Many of our Students found their own way through our training programs and you can too. But these programs are unique and not always available.
What we offer in our program is a life-arts program disguised as an amazing martial arts program. Everyone could use a break from their world to reflect, improve, ponder and grow. As Miyamoto Musashi put it:
“The way is in training”
This is a constant and never-ending process and you an benefit from that opportunity to grow now while it is available to you. You will not be limited to learning how to kick, punch, roll, fall or move like Jackie Chan. You will also be stretching your mental boundaries and learning new skills that will improve your life.
There are some skills that the martial arts offers that are hard to learn anywhere else. The mind-body connection is a powerful tool that exists in our training as every class is a chance for you to have an aha moment or learn to deal with mental demons.
We teach you to create your own strategies by learning skills in the martial arts and having a real time ability to contemplate effectiveness. What works for you, what you struggle with and why. You will be able to not only discover personal demons that limit your potential but also be given the tools to eliminate them too.
