HOW THE SDTS REVOLUTION STARTED
I’m sure right now you’re VERY SKEPTICAL. With all the fighting systems
available out there, it seems insane to think that NO ONE ELSE HAS EVER SEEN THIS
SYSTEM... AND LIVED.
Here’s the story... 70 years ago this form of hand-to-hand combat was taught to commandos and
special police tactical units. It was used to defeat the Chinese Drug Triads in Shanghai, the
Nazi War Machine in WWII and served the OSS and then the CIA well in the height of the Cold War
but then something happened...
THE ERA OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS
During the Vietnam Era, these methods were deemed too brutal and inhumane for the police and even
the military. As a result, the pencil pushing politicians dropped it from ALL CURRICULUMS...
just like the chokehold.
Inhumane?!? ...Tell that to the family whose child has been murdered or the woman who was just
In spite of the best efforts of government to dictate how we should defend ourselves, these
methods were still taught privately in “secret circles” of people who dealt with violence on a
daily basis. If you knew the right person you could be introduced and if you were deemed worthy,
you were invited back.
The goal was never to create a “martial art” or even to make money. It was to survive and the men
and women who preserved these tactics did just that…in the worst places imaginable.
Damian Ross, the creator of the Self Defense Training System was in that “secret circle”. As a
multiple black belt holder, bouncer and a body guard with a conceal carry permit he was putting
his life on the line and to be honest, the martial arts he learned for self defense NEVER WORKED
AS PROMISED – but this stuff did!
Since 1989, Damian has used and tested these methods. Over the course of several years he
developed a system of training people in these tactics using modern learning techniques. Later
he developed this train at home program so people could learn these brutally effective methods
without having to travel or take time off from work.
