The Defense Expert

Add REAL WORLD Family Safety and Self Defense and Instruction To Your Curriculum

Parents are motivated to keep their families safe. Nothing is more precious to a parent than their children. Not everyone is prepared to handle real world threats or trained in real self defense. To help keep their families safe every member – regardless of age – must:

  • Be aware of life’s dangers and alert to their presence
  • Trusting their intuition as an indicator of when to take action
  • Be confident that, if a threat occurs, they’ll know how to take appropriate action

Everyone must be prepared for real world threats and know real world self defense.

Martial Arts Marketing Network is proud to offer a course in real self defense and family safety, developed by US Fighting Systems. This course provides field-proven solutions that prepare families for real world threats.

US Fighting Systems is taught by Dave Young, an internationally recognized defensive tactics trainer who has been teaching police, corrections, and military professionals for over 30 years. Dave offers 70 professional training courses to public safety professionals throughout the world, and has been featured in People Magazine and on CNN. He also hosted the National Geographic documentary Crash Test Human for three years.

The Defense Expert course certifies school owners and instructors in US Fighting Systems’ real self defense techniques and teaches how to handle real world threats and encounters. There are no mats, time limits, or referees outside. As a certified instructor you will be able to give your students confidence that they can protect their families. You students will:

  • Know the critical safety indicators and the best strategies for protection from violence

Given the established credibility of this program (developed by Vistelar, Dave Young’s background, and having been used on the street with the most violent of criminals for over 30 years) we should be charging thousands dollars to become a certified instructor. This allows you to position yourself as The Defense Expert in your local community. Plus the website, listing, ongoing marketing support, and more we should be charging hundreds of dollars per month. However, we want every community to have a Defense Expert.
