The Street Smart programs all provide unique, transformational training experiences 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.  All of the Street Smart programs are 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.  These courses facilitates an awakening of this skill which is already in you.  The first level of each class (Escape!) takes 2 to 3 hours to complete.  

One time.  

That's it.  


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.


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

I have trained and taught martial arts for 38+ years.  I truly love the martial arts, and believe in the many values found in training them. 

However, I do not think the best personal safety programs are made up of complicated moves and techniques ... or just some tips on situational awareness. 

A personal safety program (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 3 core Street Smart Defender™ programs.  I wanted to bring a realistic solution to the problem of violence (which is sadly so prevalent in our world today). 

ALL of our programs are built off of the 3 core Street Smart Defender programs, but are SPECIALIZED for specific needs of different groups (ie Real Estate Professionals, Students, Executives, etc.)

Other classes teach 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 to work 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 personal safety. 

I don't believe you need to be an elite expert. 

The Street Smart Programs use 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."  -- Navy SEALs Training Motto

Personal 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!
