Extraordinary Training for Regular People


Street Smart Defender™ provides a unique, transformational training experience using cutting edge training methods to quickly and effectively awaken your innate ability to protect yourself and your loved ones.

Actually it's really very simple.  Street Smart Defender™ is based on the belief that everyone has the right to feel safe.  Nobody should have to live their life in fear.  I believe that you learn most of what you need to know to protect yourself before the age of 2 years old.  This course facilitates an awakening of this skill that is already in you.  The first level of the class (SSD: Escape!) takes about 3 hours to complete.  One time.  That's it.  Really.  

When you have completed this training experience, you will be able to defend yourself and escape most types of attacks ... I believe this because I know it to be true.  I have facilitated hundreds of classes and worked with literally thousands of people.  It works.  How sure am I?  If the training doesn't do exactly what I say it will do for you ... I will give you 100% of your money back.  Guaranteed.

"Self defense is not an elite skill. Self defense is everyone's birthright." -- John Koeshall

I have trained and taught martial arts for over 35 years.  I love martial arts ... clearly, and believe in the many values found in training them.  However, I do not think the best self defense is made up of complicated moves and techniques.  Self defense (that really works!) needs to be available to everybody, needs to work for everybody, and it needs to be quick to learn and impossible to forget.  This is why I created the Street Smart Defender™ program.  I wanted to bring a realistic solution to the problem of violence which is sadly so prevalent in our world today.  Other classes focus on unrealistic martial arts moves that the average person will never be able to remember (much less make work) when under extreme stress.  Without years of training and diligent practice, these classes and techniques have NO chance in working for you.  

Most people simply don't have the time, patience, or energy to spend the needed amount of time to become an "elite expert" in self defense.  I don't believe you need to be an elite expert.  Street Smart Defender™ uses natural motions that most people use daily.  You don't need to learn any new moves.  While you experience the training, you will discover and train your natural tools in an environment that safely and quickly hones your ability to safely escape a threat. 

"You will not rise to your level of expectation when under stress. You will fall to your level of training."

Safety, and the ability to effectively defend oneself, is one of the basic human rights.  I believe that EVERYONE should have this skill.  Young, old, men, women, boys, and girls.  Everyone deserves to be safe.

Blessings and Strength!

Never worry about forgetting ... you will "install" the techniques into your brain.

These moves DO NOT depend on strength or athleticism.  So easy even a child can use them!

-- A Few Words About Self Defense --

Self defense is NOT
1) "Police work" - Controlling someone, taking them down, and holding them in place until help arrives
2) "Military Combat" - Attempting to maim or kill an attacker in order to "make them pay"
3) "Vigilantism" - Looking for trouble, so that you can right the wrongs of others

Self defense IS:
1) Getting away from an unwanted approach or an attack in the quickest most efficient manner possible
2) Getting to a safe place to remove yourself from a threat
3) Realizing you are not to blame for what happened 

What you will learn:


I am totally committed to bringing you the truth about self defense.  My desire is simply that you would know what works, what doesn't, and how to apply this information to your own situation.

My goal in this training is to equip you to avoid problems if at all possible ... or deal with them if necessary.

I do not believe self defense is an elite skill for a chosen few. I believe the ability to stay safe is your birthright.  Nobody should have to walk through life paranoid and in fear for their safety. 

I know if you give me your trust, I can teach you how to get away from almost any unwanted approach or attack.  

With these easily acquired but powerful skills you can be prepared ... in hours, not years. 

If you follow the process, you will get it.  I guarantee it!

Stay Safe!  Get Street Smart!
