About Us

Hello everyone. I’m Shane Shiels, and I own SHASHIDO  ENTERPRISES, based in Mt. Barker, South Australia.

I currently work from home, on the farm, offering Shashido stickfighting tuition. There are 3 kinds of classes:

  1. Semi-private
  2. General Group Session
  3. 1 – 1 Private

We will soon be running a series of Shashido Bootcamp courses. Each course is four week’s duration, with sessions on most days. The first is the INTRODUCTION to Shashido Stickfighting. Followed by the INTERMEDIATE course, then ADVANCED course. It is important to understand that doing all three courses does not make you an advanced martial artist, as this only constitutes twelve weeks of training, but each course provides progressively more advanced training which will provide a huge insight into the world of  Filipino stick and knife self defense.

Enquiries are always welcome.

Just give Shane a call on mob 0420 347 550…..or email : shashido@bigpond.com.
