Instructor Karam awards a student an SDTS certificate of promotion.

The Self Defense Company is expanding rapidly in Lebanon under the direction of Instructor Mario Karam.

Instructor Karam has successfully implemented the SDTS into a top tier American University (Lebanese American University) and he is continuing to grow his business.

“Becoming an instructor was the best decision of my life” said Mario when discussing why he chose the SDC. “There is no better feeling then doing what you love and saving lives!”.

Instructor Karam has not just been developing his own skills but has also began to develop instructors under him, begining with newly minted SDC Instructor Elie Bitar.

Instructor Bitar has quite a reputation in his own right being a well established martial arts practitioner in Lebanon and is a huge asset to the Self Defense Company.

“I encourage all to take a serious look at this business” says Mario.

    This is excellent @mariousmc – exactly what we envisioned when we put this together over 10 years ago.

    Can I get a pic and bio of Elie to post?

    @damian Awesome! I envisioned all this aswell before I made that “click”, but I truly didn’t expect to expand that fast. Thanks to you & my mentor Instructor Hutchings, the SDC is skyrocketing in Lebanon & about to shine in the Middle East.

    Always Forward…
