Hakim's New Dojo
My long-time friend Hakim Isler has returned to civilian life after more than a year in the sands of Iraq as a member of the U.S. Army. Hakim’s combat experiences have made him even more determined to share the SKH Quest To-Shin martial art and 14-point Code of Mindful Action with as many people as possible.
To-Shin Do 2nd Degree Black Belt Hakim Isler has opened a full-time professional school in downtown Fayetville, North Carolina, to help bring To-Shin Do warrior protector lessons in empowerment, strength, authenticity, and compassion under the stresses of conflict and uncertainty to active combat military personnel, adult business professionals, and young people alike.

I am aware that some military branches feature spirit-builder training based on sport grappling or sport boxing, and I am on record as endorsing the values of such spirit-building programs for young men and women preparing for military service. But of course these sports programs are by nature spirit-builders only and are not practical techniques to preservelives in actual warfare. Combat troops need more. I urge all military unit commanders to take the next step beyond spirit-builder sports and add Hakim’s To-Shin Do based battle-oriented courses for all troops likely to see combat action.
Hakim’s new SKH Quest Affiliate School is Elite Training Center. I heartily endorse Hakim Isler as an instructor of the highest order. Do you live in Fayetteville? Check out Hakim’s school on our SKH Quest SCHOOLS map, and at his new Elite Training Center dojo web site.
