so... why MENTAL and PHYSICAL Self Defense?
Have you ever found yourself in a situation where someone was trying to attack you?
Perhaps, you got mugged and had no idea how to handle yourself?
Do you have problems with controlling your emotions and thinking clearly in conflict situations?
The truth is that most people struggle with handling conflicts and defending themselves in heated situations. This is why we created this course.
This course is different than a typical self defence guide. We don't focus solely on self defence techniques, but put a huge emphasis on handing your emotions, building your confidence and awareness. This set of skills is necessary to successfully avoid dangerous situations and this is what we are all about. We believe that the first step to successful self defence is decreasing the probability of becoming a victim.
We will teach you how to increase your core and perceived confidence so you are less likely to be attacked. You will also learn what to do to prevent escalation from happening, how to control your emotions and maintain your composure. The truth is that those skills can be also extremely useful in your professional and personal life.
We will show you how to avoid getting physical when the situation gets out of control.We believe that using physical violence should ONLY happen when it's absolutely necessary and there is no other, peaceful way to resolve a situation.
However, not all conflicts can be resolved peacefully and we will teach you how to defend yourself when someone starts being physically aggressive towards you.
Remember: you should always do your best to avoid physical confrontations and we will teach you how. However, we also believe that it’s equally important to know what to do, when you have no choice and your well being is at risk.
Who this course is for:
- Anybody who would like to learn how to resolve conflicts (ideally without using violence)
- Anybody who would like to get a better understanding of the conflict dynamics
- Anybody who would like to increase their confidence not to appear as a potential victim
- Anybody who wants to learn how to defend themselves from aggressors

FROM GOLDMAN SACHS TO ENTREPRENEURSHIP:
In my “previous” life I was in the corporate world, working for companies such as Goldman Sachs. However, I quickly realized it wasn’t for me and dove into entrepreneurship. I’ve spent 7 years teaching over 223,000 people in my online courses while traveling full-time (76 countries). I always embrace the white-belt mentality, but I’m also grateful to see my courses mentioned in leading publications such as Entrepreneur, FoxNews, Forbes, and BusinessInsider.
For many years my single mission was to help millions of people with their psychological issues. Hence, my obsession with building educational content for the masses. However, as my audience grew, I started getting approached by various experts who also wanted to create courses. Sadly, in most cases, fear, confusion, and perceived complexity rendered them paralyzed.
Nowadays, together with my Team, we help experts, entrepreneurs and companies amplify their “voice” by creating world-class online courses. Course creation is not easy, but it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Having an experienced support team in your corner can save you months of wasted time and costly mistakes. After receiving over 29,000 official 5/5 ratings, I've learned what works and what doesn’t.
However, life is not just about business and building courses. I do my best to embrace all aspects of being a human and try to make the most of my 28,000 days on this planet. I constantly seek opportunities to challenge myself on the physical, mental and spiritual levels. For a decade, I’ve been exploring unconventional paths whether it’s training Muay Thai in Thailand, surfing in Bali, hiking the Himalayas, exploring Colombian jungles, or doing ice baths in frozen lakes - all of it while running my businesses.
FROM STAGE PHOBIA TO TOP PRESENTER
I absolutely love connecting with audiences all over the world, from Barcelona to Tokyo. I regularly speak on prestigious stages such as Digital|K, MindvalleyU, WeWork, and DNX, to name a few, often being voted the best speaker of the event. I also host international gatherings such as OCR European Championships and run private training (online and offline) for companies.
As a passion project, I interview top performers in their fields including Bestselling Authors, Special Forces Soldiers, UFC Hall of Famers, Entrepreneurs, and Artists. Those deep-dive conversations serve as a springboard to explore human potential. Some of my guests include Bruce Lipton, John Joseph, Ollie Ollerton, Harry Mack, Yanik Silver, and Evan Carmichael.
However, all of the above wasn’t always my reality.
I grew up in post-communist Poland with no money, no language abilities (other than Polish), and lots of limiting beliefs. At some point, I discovered personal development and realized that I could create my own reality. I took my education seriously, bootstrapped myself to a British Business School, started traveling Europe on a tiny budget (often sleeping on beaches and hostel dorms). Even then, I struggled with confidence issues and public speaking phobia.
If someone told me back then that one day, I would live my current life - I wouldn’t have believed. The path wasn’t easy, but no game would be fun without a fair share of challenges. To me, life is like the ultimate game and I’m trying to make the most of each experience, whether it’s up or down.
If you’ve read till here - thank you for taking the time and I hope that you will enjoy my courses.
Also, always remember - you are better than you often think you are. You just have to learn how to harness that inner power.
