Beginning his training in 1967, Shintaikido Kaiso Dave Bendigkeit has earned an 8th Degree Black Belt in Kajukenbo with the title of Professor, under Grand Master Bob Maschmeier, and a Shodan in Aikido with Patricia Hendricks Sensei. He is the founder (Kaiso) of Shintaikido. He is certified as a teacher of Tai Chi Chuan and Chi Gung. He has trained in Sil Lum Fut Ga with Sifu Andy Ching and in knife fighting with Professor Cliff Stewart and Kuk Sa Nim Michael DeAlba. Shintaikido is a martial art developed and taught by Sensei Dave Bendigkeit. Shintaikido is taught as a traditional martial art, allowing a person under attack to make a choice as to whether to be a street fighter, a martial artist, or to step aside and move on. The main goal of training is to be able to instantly adapt to any situation with the appropriate reaction and level of force.
