An Effective and Efficient Method of Self-​​Defense for the Professional Warrior 

Damian Ross gets it. If there was ever an instructor who knows what works and what does not work, he is the man. He is the president of the Self Defense Company ™ and creator of the Guardian Defensive Tactics Police Combatives ™ system as well as the Self Defense Company’s Training System Combatives ™ program.

I have been training since 1974, in a myriad of martial arts and defensive tactics systems. I have been a Police Defensive Tactics instructor since 1995. I have taught martial arts since 1989. I can tell when a system has what it takes to keep you alive and when it is strictly for sport, for show, or simply for profit. The Self Defense Company’s Guardian Defensive tactics Police Combatives ™ program is the real deal!

I have recently begun accumulating various books, DVDs, etc. to compare and contrast what is currently available. Now do not misunderstand, I have been collecting books, videos, and other information about the martial arts since 1974, but lately I have been studying and researching all of these newest and latest systems that are currently on the market. I am very interested in what is being sold as “reality based” martial arts and self-​​defense. So much out there is nonsense.

One system that immediately grabbed my attention, while watching the videos and reading the manuals, was the Guardian Combatives program. The level of instruction is incredible. The techniques, or better described as concepts, are taught in a simple and practical manner, no bull****! Furthermore, how can you beat the price when the entire Guardian system only costs $67.49; what a bargain that is!

I am so impressed with the system that I am teaching it to my police department. It offers a simple and effective alternative to the normal police academy menu of techniques. Moreover, when I contacted Mr. Ross and asked for permission to teach his system to my fellow officers and students, he immediately responded with full endorsement of my request, and encouraged me to do so.

In addition to the Guardian Police Combatives ™ program, I also purchased the regular Self Defense Company’s Training System ™ and have found many of those techniques, or concepts, to be applicable to law enforcement personnel as well. I will be sharing that system with my officers during our next training session. I even went ahead and also ordered the 60 Minute Self Defense ™ DVD and the Family Safe Program ™ from the Self Defense Company and was impressed with those programs as well.

So, if you want to try something that will help keep you alive, that is simple yet effective, and at a very reasonable price, I highly recommend the Self Defense Company’s training products. “Train Honestly,” “Stay Safe” and remember, “If Not Me, Then Who?”
