Vince Olech

Hi, my name is Vince Olech and I currently live in rural, Northwestern, Ohio. It’s quiet here for the most part. I want to thank Damian Ross for his efforts with SDTS. It is awesome. It’s a straight, to the point, no bullshit, get ‘er done system. It’s what we need more of. A bit of history on me: I have been a deputy or city cop off and on since 1987; serving in South Carolina, Florida, and Washington, D.C./Va/Md. I have studied Thai Boxing, Jeet Kune Do, Kung Fu San Soo and a lot of street fighting with rednecks and other assholes. And for the past year or so, SDTS. SDTS reminds me of my first defensive tactics instructor at the SC Police Academy, who said the way to win a fight is to inflict high intensity pain. (Imagine that statement from a 5’7″ very southern retired SC Trooper, who was pulled from the street because he hurt too many bad guys; HA) When it comes down to it, whether you are a SWAT officer all dressed up with a door to knock down, trying to apprehend a felon at 3 a.m., or trying to “talk” some sense into some hard head; in the end they don’t give a rat’s ass what you know. The only way to get their “cooperation,” or just do your job and go home alive that night means you need to introduce them to a concrete pillar, the ground or effect something that will definitely cause them to reconsider their initial poor response. It takes knowing what you are doing, then doing it if necessary. Your, wife, children or anyone else depending on you will thank you when you all go home and someone else doesn’t; but perhaps gets a ride to the nearest hospital. Hey, not violence for violence sake, but being prepared, and able and willing to do what it takes. Preparation is the highest form of believing. Damian, thanks for your efforts, they are worth it. We just need to step up to the plate and take care of business. Glad to be here!!!
