2016 DSI Fall Convention: October 21-23, 2016

The DSI looks forward to seeing our friends and training partners at our annual convention in Myrtle Beach on 2016DSIFallConvention-SmallOctober 21, 22, and 23. This year we will be bringing more of our Grandmasters and distinguished guests to share information with attendees.

Last October we had an additional 60+ hours of Grandmaster level instruction taught outside of the scheduled formal teaching hours. This is what makes the convention, the individual sharing and specialized training is what makes the event such a success.

This will give attendees a wide spectrum view of the depth of instruction available from our Certified Instructors and Preferred Training partners.

The pre-registration price is $175 until September 15. After that, the cost will be $225.

We will be entering the hotels prime season so the rates we have are super low for that time of the year. Unlike last October there will be no additional rooms added to the blocked off room list. So once the rooms are gone, the rooms will likely double in price if not more!

Ancient-Acupuncture-chart2Most Martial Artists are Missing Out on the Advanced Aspects of their Art!

It's true. Over the millennia, so much of the ancient Martial Arts have been lost to time! The combative systems have given way to mere art forms with little to no resemblance to the original battle-effective systems of the past.

Sure, it's great to see little Johnny or Suzy get their Yellow Belt in sport karate at the age of six, but what about you? Don't you want something that packs a lot more punch? Don't you need something better that will stop that nasty sub-human form of life that wants to injure you or your family?

The Dragon Society International has spent over three decades researching and developing the most effective real-world training available. How did we develop all of this? Simple. We discovered the ancient secrets were just hidden within the Martial Arts all along. When Martial Arts went underground, the heads of the systems hid the most devastating material in plain site but rarely explained how to use it. We cracked the code and can share those secrets with you!

The Martial Arts were founded upon the science of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Once you know how to apply these to the techniques in your system, your capabilities increase exponentially and immediately! Sure, there are others out there claiming to do Pressure Point techniques, but that is all they have...some techniques. It takes a lot more than that to be effective and truly understand what is hidden within the Martial Arts forms! This is where we excel!

With DSI, you will learn OVER 200 principles which you can apply to any and every technique, regardless of your style! You don't have to stop doing your style; make it even more effective with our system. Many of you have invested the rest of your life times studying and refining your art. Isn't it time to achieve everything you have set your mind to and take your art further than anyone else has done?

Wow here we go again!! I have had tremendous amount of requests for a repeat of the Center Axis Combat course so you asked for it and you got it!! September 30th, October 1st & 2nd will be the dates of the Morrison Tactical Center Axis Combat Certification Class ! This course will be a Level 1 Center Axis Combat Certification course. Take your pistol skills to the next level by joining us for this AWESOME course !! This system has several notable features one of which is its 90% reduction muzzle flip from recoil and 94% hit rate on target with the ability for dynamic movement of the shooter. This allows the shooter to deploy close combat skills with a firearm in and outside of vehicles, buildings, and with a high level of combat accuracy and unparalleled weapons retention. The C.A.R. system allows for shooting with both eyes open, and works with the body's natural alarm response under extreme stress. Because of the advantages over traditional Isosceles and Weaver stances, the C.A.R. system is being quietly adopted and used by some of our nation's most elite operators and military units throughout the world. This is a certificated course. All students who successfully complete the training will be receiving a certificate from MORRISON TACTICAL. COME TAKE YOUR TRAINING TO REALITY!! 20 SPOTS ONLY !!!!! Contact me immediately for pricing and details.

IMPORTANT!!!!!! Today is the LAST DAY you can book your room with the Crown Reef for the October seminar at the special rate! Please make sure you have your room(s) reserved. Don't miss this opportunity! Deluxe ocean front hotel and waterpark for an extremely low price. Plus, $10 meal ticket, $10 game room ticket, and $25 resort fee per day free! ... See MoreSee Less

Adam ForeThank you for this experience, and knowledge. Thank you all, both the instructors and fellow classmates who were there. I am still running these drills daily morning and night to build up to a more capable and proficient level of Center Axis. What I learned that weekend was more than you can imagine, and to those considering carrying a firearm regularly, after your permit and basic classes this is a mandatory skill set in my mind, because this knowledge may very likely save your life.

Testimonials

Ron_Van_Browning_2011sm
For the Dragon Society International & everyone with their eyes open to learning: Grandmaster Rick Moneymaker & Grandmaster Tom Muncy has and are opening the doors and eyes for all Martial Artists through their leadership, teaching and the science of the Dragon Society International (DSI). Everything we do is based upon the facts of science. You can change an art but the science cannot be changed and it remains true & pure. GM Moneymaker & GM Muncy provide a connection for all of the Martial Artist through the DSI and their conventions. To not attend the DSI conventions would be passing on a vast opportunity of learning and knowledge at hand. After 54 years of training, teaching and experience I am now finding not how much I know or how much skill I have, but how much I don't know. And that is how I learn. DSI Camp: ‘It's not about what you know, its how much you don't know. The science is the key to all the arts. After 54 years in Martial Arts I have so much more to learn’”

It a was very rejuvenating and refreshing to participate in your martial arts convention. Everyone was humble and worked together sharing their varied skills and techniques. The soft pressure points technique was an amazing eye opener even for a Grand Master 9 Degree Black Belt, like myself, training over 50 years. The combining of the many different techniques brings Torite-Jutsu at the forefront of mixed martial arts with a depth and technique that I have not seen before or experienced in person before. I look forward and with anticipation to the next seminar.
