The Self Defense Training System (SDTS) has a combat pedigree like no other martial art or self defense program in the world. It’s the only system specifically developed for modern close combat and is the culmination of scientific research and intensive field trials conducted by several governments and citizens since 1910.

In the early 1900s, the world and warfare changed forever. The attack-and-die tactics of trench warfare combined with new, mechanized weapons and mixing of cultures, causing an escalation in violence that has never been seen before or since.

The need for lethal hand to hand tactics reached its zenith in World War II. On the cusp of global conflict, every super power scrambled to gain any tactical edge over their enemy in every aspect of warfare, especially close combat.

The German war machine and the legendary fighting prowess of the Japanese soldier had allied forces concerned over the ability of our men to survive and win on the battlefield and in clandestine operations deep behind enemy lines. This sparked the arms race of hand to hand combat.

The SDTS has only one application, to destroy the enemy. Since there are no rules in close quarters combat, you can’t risk doing anything less. This is everything there is to know about man-on-man violence.

Once you complete your training you will be an extremely dangerous person. Feared and respected by all.
