Zena Diab, Lebanon
Grade 4 SDTS Certified
Meet Zena Diab, University Professor and SDTS “addict”.
I’ d been looking for a self- defense system that WORKS for years when i met coach Mario Karam, who introduced me to the SDTS and combatives.
I was instantly obsessed. I train nonstop to become a coach and to make my coach and the SDTS proud. I already wrote more than one thank u note but what i want to add is:
THE TRAINING IN ITSELF IS DEEPLY THERAPEUTIC AND PSYCHOLOGICALLY CATHARTIC. IT IS A LIFESAVER ON MORE THAT ONE LEVEL.
FIRST, IT CHANNELS THE ANGER AND VIOLENCE THAT ARE DORMANT OR AWAKE IN ALL OF US AND PUTS THEM WHERE THEY BELONG.
SECOND, TRAINING FOR AWARENESS AT ALL TIMES AND SITUATIONAL ASSESSMENT AND STRESS INOCULATION AND IMAGINING REAL LIFE SCENARIOS AND ACTING ACCORDINGLY IS WONDERFULLY LIBERATING BECAUSE IT GROUNDS US IN THE MOMENT. IN THE NOW. HENCE IT S A MEDITATION EXERCISE.
I can write on and on about what training brings me. I am deeply thankful for coach Mario Karam ‘s training and invaluable instructions, advice and patience and for all the wonderfully inspiring Masters of the system, namely Carl Cestari and Damian Ross…
Thank you Zena!!!
I can’t tell you how humbled I am to read your words. You remind me of myself when I discovered this training so long ago. To see you move through the SDTS Grades is an honor. Soon…GRADE 10!!!
