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.”

    This is an awesome self-defense training course. It was very clear to understand and learn the techniques that Mr. Damian teaches in his training videos I am learning a lot just from watching his videos and studying and learning from self-defense class. This is the very best self-defense company to be a part of and learn how to protect yourself and love ones. I would recommend this to anyone that is interested in learning self-defense lessons.

    I've been involved in Martial Arts and Fighting systems for over 30 years with 7 1/2 of those spent as a Corrections Officer which included working in a Maximum Security Prison. After speaking to various Self Defense Company Instructors and conducting my own research, I became so impressed with not only the various SCD Curriculum offered but also the SDC's mission that I Signed up for their Instructor Program as well.

    I bought the Self Defense Training System in 2009 at the lowest point in my life. My wife had left me (to another state) and taken my two daughters, and she surprised me with $82,000 in credit card debt when she left. She told my little girls "we have to leave since daddy doesn't love you anymore." Turned out she had also converted my good credit into a nest egg for her departure. I lost my house, my car, my boat, and my job. I was homeless, sleeping on couches, and had to take a low-paying job to pay my child support and bills.I decided to take charge of my life and invested an unthinkable amount of money (to me at the time) in the SDTS. It was the best thing I ever did. Since then, I have literally beat the screws out the back of my BOB dummy. Afterwards, I went on to develop instructor-level credentials in three other martial arts, including judo, always filtering what I learned through the lens of "what I know works according to Coach Ross." I apprenticed under Coach John Hanrahan (www.wrestlingcoach.com) as well, and wrestled with professional athletes in his gym in Alpharetta, GA (got my *ss kicked). I have approximated your own training as much as possible.I wanted to thank you, sincerely. I might not have made it without you. Ten years later I have driven 250,000 miles to see my little girls, and our relationship is better than ever. And I have confronted the trials in my life knowing I can handle things if they go wrong.Many thanks--know that the work you do has changed lives,bw

    This is a no nonsense practically self defence system that train you to work fast and strike hard without giving the opponent a chance to recover. I like the iron fist training and I am training daily to toughen my hand into a weapon. Thanks.

    Damian, I am just starting out but already I have found your programs to be very concise, very organized and easy to enable me to keep a track record of the modules completed. Along with this is how clear and easy you make it to follow along and put it into practice immediately and it is not tedious or boring. The other point I want to make and to me is equally important is how readily available you make yourself to answer questions and to reply. That is so very unusual for many businesses today no matter what it may be and it speaks of true customer service a true rarity.

    This is exactly what I have been looking for. Every aspect of self defense is covered. Simple and straight to the point. You dont need all the complicated moves to defend ur self.STRIKE FIRST, STRIKE FAST, STRIKE HARD !!

    As a Southern Shaolin Kung Fu Black Belt with 42 yrs. experience, I attest to the quality of SDTS. Too many Martial Artist get handed a belt for learning a handful of flowery Katas, and get stomped into Oblivion or worse in a real dust up. SDTS is as genuine and authentic a Self Defense system as there is. You will learn to handily defend yourself against larger, stronger attackers. Don't walk around with a false sense of security. Learn REAL skills that could save your life.
