Hear what people just like you are saying about the incredible power of the Self Defense Training System™!

“We featured Damian and the SDTS on our world famous TV show “Penn and Teller’s Bullsh!t”. We tried to prove he was full of it… but we FAILED! Damian and the SDTS are the real deal. In fact, we got two programs ourselves. No Sh**! Check out the episode yourself!”

Penn and Teller – World Famous Entertainers

“I’m a Black Belt and I’ve been in my share of fights. The SDTS taught me things I never even conceived. It’s an awesome program and there is nothing out there like it. Trust me, give it a shot and you won’t be disappointed.”

Danny Bonaduce – Television and Radio Personality, Martial Artist and Former Child star

“I checked out his program The Self Defense Training System and was blown away. I carry a firearm and now I carry a firearm and do the Self Defense Training System.”

    The training program has great information on the subject, very clear, summarized, and easy to understand. Great teaching on why self defense arts are different than other types of martial arts.

    I have been training from around 12 and have always loved the practical aspect of the martial arts ,Right up to today at 29 I have trained in taekwondo, judo, mma, aikido, krav maga etc. But nothing compares to the practicality and common sense of the SDTS. I have been studying the videos and doing the drills for a bit but it feels as all gaps in knowledge are taking into account. It is like a complete education on self defense is totally covered. No need for fancy moves etc. Just what works for anyone under stress. I look forward to keep learning.

    This is just to thank you Damian for what u give me. I ve passed the exams for grade 1 and 2 and am preparing for the rest. I m watching the defense against weapons and falling more and more in love with the system. Same spirit, same mindset : taking ground and taking the fight to the assailant. U simply make sense to me. I train super honestly and consistently like my life depended on it. Who knows. It might.. one day. I was introduced to the system by Mario Karam who s always there to encourage me and answer my questions. I also want to thank u for your sense of humour and your simplicity. Yours is the system i ve been looking for... for years. I m literally LIVING for it. I have problems (health and other problems) and training is my lifebuoy. It keeps me going and feeds my fighting spirit. THANK U.
  • Awesome training system.

    I have been looking into a system that was easy and effective so I can protect myself as a private security officer here in Texas. I have looked into Jujitsu, Karate, Taekwando, Krav Maga, Wrestling, Judo and this system. Of all of the systems I have looked into this one has been the easiest to learn due to the simplicity of it. With this system I feel like I can stop any attack as long as I keep my head in the game at condition yellow and don't let myself succumb to complacency. Thank you Damien for making me feel more confident as a security office whether armed or not.

    I have belts in three different styles of Martial Arts. After 34 + years as a law enforcement officer, I can honestly tell you that Martial Arts doesn’t work on the mean streets. In the famous movie scene, Lee and Norris shot the nine-minute + scene in only three days with a choreographer, a dance instructor. SDC is a system that can be learned quickly by anybody. SDC is guaranteed. SDC includes reading the area, the predator, and the danger before you get into trouble. You will be more confident, more ready, and more cool without fancy belts, uniforms or trophies. You will also learn things that Martial Artists never knew. And, you will do all at a smaller price than Martial Arts. OK “Shine” Neal (L-5)

    Having studied many martial arts and combative methods, including more obscure types of training, The Self Defense Company definitely has the best gathering of training and education in one convenient place. I am happy that this company is growing. I was looking for a self defense company---and found THE Self Defense Company---where I could develop a successful business as an instructor. SDC has been established for a number of years and is worth getting involved in! Even now improvements are being made to make it even better for students and instructors.

    The self defence system helps me in my daily work. I transport highly stealable items such as alcohol and cigarettes. I work part time as a taxi driver and have successfully defended against multiple mugging attempts using the training systems. The same with assaults . These too have been defended against so in the course of my work there has been no injury received and no successful theft of goods or money. Thank you

    Having researched all forms of self-defense for the person that didn't have the hours necessary to join a Dojo and waste years of my life learning the fluff I opted first to join the SDC as a student, once I got my feet wet the only logical solution was to jump in and become an instructor. Have not bothered to look back yet because the view is always better looking forward.

    I've trained in the SDTS since 2014. The convenience of training on my own schedule, along with the reality and usability of the system is unmatched by anything else. If you're looking for training you can use right away, and training that can save your life, the SDC is what you need.
