Its roots lie in ancient Japanese martial arts and philosophy, where warriors used their swords in combat and as a tool for personal growth.

Kami No Ken As A Way Of Life

“Kami No Ken is not a product; it is a way of life – the Principle of Life, shares Coach Nasser. 

“Kami No Ken is a process of self-discovery where the individual will discover its inner strength based on daily rituals and habits. Our programs are focused on bringing back the awareness of the connection between our body, mind and soul, thus creating balance and harmony within ourselves and our surroundings.” the master Kami No Ken trainer added. 

Being a vocational and avocational self-improvement program; this is not a medical treatment and is more focused on “improving the quality of our lives by first improving ourselves.”

Holistic Wellness Tourism At The Farm At San Benito 

Wellness tourism being synonymous with eco-tourism, wellness tourism establishments need to implement sustainable practices to reduce their carbon footprint. This includes reducing waste, conserving energy and water, supporting local conservation efforts, and promoting responsible tourism practices among guests.

Additionally, diversifying target markets to cater to different customer segments and geographic locations helps maintain a steady flow of guests. For instance, apart from training programs like Kami No Ken, The Farm at San Benito has also introduced initiatives like Family Wellness, Green Meetings, and 

Wellness Weddings, to name a few, to attract a diverse range of visitors apart from the medically-supervised all-inclusive health optimization programs.

Moreover, by developing partnerships and inviting local and international Visiting Practitioners who specialize in holistic healing and healing arts, the holistic wellness sanctuary creates year-round attractions or events that reduce the impact of seasonality.
