  • Abduction Prevention Workshop

    Child abduction and crimes against children are a horrific trend in today's society. Children need to recognize adults intending to harm them versus those who aren't. Our children need to learn how to take steps to avoid a dangerous situation, and if necessary defend themselves. Shin Gan Dojo's Abduction Prevention Workshop was developed to provide your child with the tools and knowledge to protect themselves and increase their opportunities for a healthier and safer future. Several times a year Shin Gan Dojo teaches our Abduction Prevention Workshop to kids in our community.

    Hello again, July Fourth 2016 we had our annual 4 th of July Overnight Shoot. 14 fellow firearm enthusiasts attended our event / shoot. Some of whom are our current batch of Beyond CCW students, some former students and the rest friends and family. We held four separate events.

    Fourth of July Desert Shoot

    On July 4th we held another genuine Forth of July Celebration by gathering in the NV desert with rifles and pistols blasting away at paper and steel targets. We held two separate shoots. The first one was a complete surprise scenario we dubbed The Roadblock. The second shoot featured three pop up targets. Each pop up assembly exposed a target for an unknown duration with an unknown interval between exposures. The spread between targets was fairly wide and the distances between each target assembly varied between 50 yards and 130 yards. Many lessons were designed into the Roadblock shoot and many more were discovered by happenstance. Here are some highlights: Always ....

  • Kids Martial Arts in Sparks - Shin Gan Dojo - Kamae

    Kamae

    In Japanese martial arts the term Kamae most often refers to one’s fighting posture. The Shin Gan Dojo is no exception. In fact, we practice many different Kamae. Over the years I’ve seen many people lack proper Kamae, be it physically or mentally. Sometimes the problem is simply being too relaxed in the limbs. More often the problem is the practitioner has lost his mental focus and is thinking about other things in a crucial moment. The point is, somewhere along the line the meaning of Kamae isn’t being received correctly. I think my definition will help people solidify a better understanding of the word Kamae that will in turn help with the physical posture(s). Kamae: An ....

  • Kids Martial Arts in Sparks - Shin Gan Dojo - Recent Horne Shooting Event

    Recent Horne Shooting Event

    As some of you know, Sensei went out of town the weekend of April 17. Most of the student body is aware that Sensei is involved in the rifle and pistol craft. It so happens that our trip was for that purpose. Every so often, a mentor of mine, Michael Horne, an accomplished firearms shoot coordinator, puts on an extensive shoot for a select group of shooters and friends. Horne was the most prominent match director for Soldier of Fortune Magazine’s world renown 3 Gun Matches. He was the man who put the magazine’s 3 gun match on the international map! This particular rifle shoot was, as usual, incredibly fun and educational. There’s no better time than when you and your armed friends ....
