I woke up this morning and discovered that Udemy has banned the Self Defense Company Programs:
A couple of years ago, we put a few programs on Udemy to test.
60 Minute Self Defense
Guardian Weapon Retention
Those of you who know these programs, understand what is in them…but I guess it was too brutal for Udemy…
“As a global platform we must consider the sensitivities and laws when deciding what kinds of topics to promote.”
My response was as follows:
The irony is – NONE OF THESE PROGRAMS USE WEAPONS (unless you consider pepper spray and personal alarms).
And if they think this is brutal…IMAGINE what they would think of the SDTS Modules 9, 11 and 12.
Or OPERATION PHOENIX!!! I think they would have an aneurysm.
So, if Udemy wants to remove us from their offerings because we’re “insensitive” WHAT DOES THAT SAY ABOUT THE OTHER SELF DEFENSE PROGRAMS ON UDEMY!!!
Because in addition to self defense, Udemy offers courses in…
Sex Education For Teens and Parents
Educate your kids about sex – in the right way and at the right time – to ensure their long-term health and happiness.
Bedroom Blaster: Double the Love, Double the Sex
Married men: want more sex in your marriage? This course comprises the most straight-forward, tried and proven method
A Beginner’s Guide to Trans 101
A Foundational Course in Transgender/Gender Studies
Psychology of Diversity and Unconscious Bias
Understand Stereotypes, Prejudice, and Discrimination and How to Reduce Their Influence at Work and Your Community
So…my guess is that all of the other self defense programs on Udemy meet the same standards as these fine programs.
I guess this ban couldn’t come soon enough :)
Good-bye Udemy and good riddance.
To celebrate, I’m going to discount the hell out of the “banned” programs…
The Self Defense Company/Bodyguard
