Notre raison d'être

Notre passion

Nos aspirations...


Être la version la plus authentique de soi, toujours fidèle à nous-même et à ce qui est juste, et agir en conséquence avec pleine présence, en toutes circonstances.


Se connaître à un point tel que l'on peut communiquer clairement et ainsi créer des relations significatives à tous les niveaux.


Se respecter à un point tel que l'on est en mesure d'établir et d'assurer le respect de nos limites avec calme et paisibilité, ce qui nous permet ensuite de plus facilement et justement faire confiance et se donner généreusement aux autres.

Savoir que nous verrons les choses telles qu'elles sont, sans jugement, et qu'à cause de cela, nous prendrons les actions nécessaires pour assurer notre santé, sécurité et bien-être et nous nous protègerons ainsi que ceux qui nous sont chers contre tout individu qui souhaiterait nous causer dommages. 


It is knowing we will see things for what they truly are, without judgement, and with that insight, to completely trust ourselves to do what is right to ensure our safety, health and well-being, AND to peacefully protect ourselves, others and those we love in the face of those who may wish us harm.


Comment on s'y rend...

On apprend en s'obervant soi-même, les autres ainsi que nos interactions ensemble. On voit ce qui nous empêche de devenir la version la plus  forte et authentique de soi-même et on 


It is through learning by observing ourselves, others and our interactions together, seeing what blocks us from becoming our truest and strongest selves and figuring out how to overcome our deepest struggles, challenging life events and innermost fears so that we may rise and live, to the fullest, with purpose and passion.


How we help others...

It is then sharing how we went about getting stronger--the tools, the tricks, the awareness, the insights, the skills... It is being so connected to ourselves that we are able to provide each person with what they specifically need to be their most authentic selves, always staying true to who they really are and living out their purpose and passion so they may in turn… Inspire others to find their own purpose and passion...


Whatever we learn, in self-defense and empowerment,

we aspire to share and help others become their wisest, most powerful and fiercest selves...



IT IS A CONSTANT CYCLE OF GENUINE GIVING

THAT CAN ONLY BEGIN WITH US BEING GENUINELY OURSELVES...

Why the Phoenix?

Because we always rise...


No matter what we live, no matter the challenge, no matter the depth of sorrow, hurt, anger or despair,  

WE RISE

We rise to be stronger, we rise to be better, and every time we rise, we become our truest selves, more and more. The more we rise above our challenges, the wiser, the stronger and the fiercer we get, for fierceness isn't just about protecting ourselves and others resolutely in a fight--fierceness is about living, to the absolute fullest, every aspect our lives. It is about protecting and expressing who we truly we are so we may be, share and give to others our best selves, always...


Our Symbol

It’s Story & Our Gratitude

Alexandrina’s quest for meaningful inspiration...


For the last 2 years, I have been actively searching for what name and symbol would represent us, our work and our passion, best. 2015-2017 were extremely challenging years but I could feel something changing within me—my assertiveness was growing as was my inner peace. My fears were subsiding as was my challenge to put myself out there, both shifting into joyous excitement to share all I have been learning through myself and those around me. I was looking for a symbol that could capture all of that transformation as well as the growth we constantly live throughout life…

Every year, during X-Mas time, I have a slew of movies I love to watch—Die Hard, Home Alone, While you Were Sleeping… I also very much enjoy the Harry Potter series… As I was recovering at home Christmas of 2016, I was watching the Chamber of Secrets… In this chapter, Fawkes, Headmaster Dumbledore’s Phoenix, takes on a powerful role… He is the protector and guardian of those who do good, he fiercely fights but only when he must, he goes up in flames to rise from the ashes anew, he heals a wounded Harry with his tears...

That is when it clicked, when I thought: no matter what challenge I came across, I lived through it and rose… Close to my heart, through it all, was my passion to help others heal, be the strongest version of themselves and learn how to fight back when needed… This purpose also applied to every single person who trained with us… And each person who crossed my path gave me strength and inspiration to continue on despite the difficulties I was facing…

It became clear that we are all Phoenixes, wanting to be the protectors and guardians of those we love and care for

but needing to be that, for ourselves, first…

Gratitude beyond words…

When I realized the Phoenix was to be our symbol, I asked Kevin Secours--who beyond his absolute mastery of martial arts, self-defense and defensive tactics, is a wonderful artist on so many levels--if he would be willing to draw our Phoenix.

Although we never spoke of it, this was a huge ask… He and I were living life-altering challenges at the time… Despite that, he took it upon himself to create and draw this magnificent Phoenix, over months, as he and I worked on re-building ourselves and each other…

When he first showed me this Phoenix, I simply had no words... It was so beautiful and filled with such peaceful, mindful and fierce power that I was instantly inspired and fueled to be my best, to give my best…

This Phoenix is so much more than a symbol… It is the absolute embodiment of healing, rising and self-empowering, for everyone who has and wishes to share their journey to true self-hood and -empowerment with us!


To my best friend, business partner and martial arts/combat systems teacher Kevin Secours:

I am so beyond words grateful to you for so beautifully and all encompassingly capturing the essence of what we so deeply aspire to create, share and inspire... Thank you, more than I could ever say, for your constant support and unwavering encouragement to see me be and give my best.  Here’s to our friend and business-ships always rising to new heights!

And to all of you…

…who have supported, encouraged and been with us over the years and to you who will join us and share your journey with us, I hope this symbol, filled with deep and powerful meaning, will always inspire you to pursue your path to your wisest, most powerful and fiercest self!


Here is to RISING , always and forever, all of us together!
