6 DVD Set Shinshin Mugendo - The Art Of Total Fighting by Otake SenseiRegular price $119.94 Save $-119.94
Shin Shin Mugendo was developed by Ben Otake as a means to integrate all methods of fighting using principles of martial arts, physics, and biomechanics.
It is meant to incorporate both percussive methods and grappling methods, moving seamlessly from one to the other. Mind and body unity is essential for this integration.
Shin Shin Mugendo translates as “Mind/Body Infinite Way”. The first character of the inscription below, “shin”, is pronounced “sheen” and means Mind. The second character is also pronounced “sheen”, but means Body. The Mu-gen-do characters represent Infinite Way.

About Ben Otake
Otake's extensive martial arts experience started in the early 50's with judo, then karate and kenpo (he was one of Ed Parker's first students). He then studied with Tak Kubota of the International Karate Association, earning the rank of 6th Dan.
Otake taught the Gosoku Ryu system (IKA) from 1967 to 1972 and trained several champions including Manuel Gonzales and Tony Tulleners. He co-founded Shindokai with John Sell, to concentrate on those movements and techniques that are the most efficient and effective for self -defense. As Otake says, 'A sword that doesn't cut is just a symbol. Self defense must be grounded in reality to be effective.
