Description

WHAT IS STREET SMART DEFENDER?

Street Smart Defender provides a unique, transformational training experience using cutting edge training methods to quickly and effectively awaken your innate ability to protect yourself and your loved ones.

Actually it's really very simple.  Street Smart Defender is based on the belief that everyone has the right to feel safe.  Nobody should have to live their life in fear.  I believe that you learn most of what you need to know to protect yourself before the age of 2 years old.  Street Smart Defender facilitates an awakening of this skill that is already in you.  The first level of the class (SSD: Escape!) takes a few hours to complete.  One time.  That's it.  Really.  

When you have completed this training experience, you will be able to defend yourself and escape most types of attacks....I believe this because I know it to be true.  I have facilitated hundreds of classes and worked with literally thousands of people.  It works.  How sure am I?  If the training doesn't do exactly what I say it will do for you...I will give you your money back.  Guaranteed.

"Self defense should not be an elite skill.  Self defense is everyone's birthright." 
--John Koeshall

I have trained and taught martial arts for over 30 years.  I love martial arts... clearly, and believe in the many values found in training them. However, I do not think that the best self defense is made up of complicated moves and techniques. Self defense (that really works!) needs to be available to everybody, needs to work for everybody, and it needs to be quick to learn and impossible to forget.  That's why I created Street Smart Defender. I wanted to bring a realistic solution to the problem of violence that is so prevalent in our world today. Other classes focus on unrealistic martial arts moves that the average person will never be able to remember (much less make work) when under extreme stress. Without years of training and diligent practice, these classes and techniques have NO chance in working for you.  

Most people simply don't have the time, patience, or energy to spend the needed amount of time to become an "elite expert" in self defense. I don't believe you need to be an elite expert. Street Smart Defender uses natural motions that most people use daily.  You don't need to learn any new moves.  While you experience the training, you will discover and train your natural tools in an environment that safely and quickly hones your ability to safely escape a threat. 

"You will not rise to your level of expectation when under stress.  You will fall to your level of training."

Safety, and the ability to effectively defend oneself, is one of the basic human rights. I believe that EVERYONE should have this skill. Young, old, men, women, boys, and girls. Everyone deserves to be safe.

Blessings and Strength!
