                                      What is Sefshin

Sefshin is the name taken from the language of Serra, 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 artist. Using over 40 years of experience, his exceptional mastery of combat arts and a mysterious connection with his writing he has created an extraordinary martial art system.

Rare as it may be, Sefshin is a perfect synergy of powerful and solid Japanese Karate with the agility and fluid beauty of Chinese Kung-Fu. Even so, the basic element that inspired the creation of this martial art comes from the passages of his book called The Exordium.

The Exordium is Master Zand's account of creation, the struggle for immortality and the ongoing battle for supremacy within the universe. In this epic tale there are unknown antagonists with the power and strength of the 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 devastating their opponent with just one strike. 

The art of Sefshin aims to duplicate, as far as is humanly possible the attributes of those mystical characters. 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.

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.”
