Sefshin : The Secret of Fire

Sef Shin: The Secret Combat of Fire

Sefshin is the name taken from the language of Ser-ra, meaning the Secret Combat of Fire. Its creator is Supreme Grand Master Mehdi Zand, one of the world’s most renowned and highly decorated martial artists. A professor in philosophy and martial science; a PHD in psychology of martial arts and he holds more than 125 international awards varying from the MAA-I Cross of Honour to the philosopher of the year award from MATM. Using many years of experience, his exceptional mastery of combat arts and a deep connection with his philosophical writing he has created an extraordinary martial art system.

Rare as it may be, Sefshin is the perfect synergy of solid movements and fluid motions, a true combination of speed and power. Even so, the basic element that inspired the creation of this martial art originates from the passages of his book called The Exordium.

 In the epic tale of The Exordium there are intelligences that move with the power and strength of gods, faster than light and flexibility beyond normal comprehension. Some fought with honour and dignity while others fought ferociously and without mercy, but each side capable of defeating their opponent with just one strike. 

 The art of Sefshin aims to duplicate, as far as is humanly possible the speed and dexterity of urging fire. It will push beyond the limits of the physique and past the barriers within the mind and develop the practitioner into a confident and formidable martial artist, difficult to overcome and practically indomitable.

When you become a practitioner of Sef Shin, it is much like entering a new world of possibilities that can enable you to control and harness a variety of energies such as internal, planetary and universal that can aid you to move masterfully, entwined with the natural vibrations of your surroundings. It is the journey towards the ultimate potential of physical capability, the objective; to be unsurpassable, the goal; to harmonise with the touchable reality.

Sef Shin is not just another martial art, it is the gateway for every practitioner to advance as they defeat weakness, limitation, fear and doubt.

Following the path of Sefshin leads to greatness of the self and as Master Zand would say,

When aligned with the stars, you become a celestial body. When you are a shadow of the stars in line with the constellations of past, present and future and conquer all possibility therein, you will become The Master of fire.”
