The Protector: Citizen Support Initiative
The perfect self-contained self-defense and readiness program for anyone who wishes to be prepared to take care of themselves and others when threatened with physical violence!
Damian Ross has done it again! For those of you who are familiar with Mr. Ross’ Self Defense Training System Combatives program you know how efficient and effective that program is. Now, there is a new system based on the Police Combatives program from the Self Defense Company, but this program is for civilians who want to help their community and themselves!
Kendo is a very popular martial art involving the practitioners using simulated swords which are called shinais, to battle each other in matches which are meant to replicate an actual sword fight between Samurai warriors.
However, there is much more going on during practice than meets the eye. Kendo teaches discipline, coordination, balance, focus, and self-enlightenment. These skills are useful in the modern day world we live in.
Tony Southard is a unique man. He has been a full contact professional fighter, a bodyguard for celebrities, a martial arts instructor, a police instructor, a military instructor, a Karate Grandmaster, and a chaplain! This North Carolina based martial arts expert and trainer is a man you should know. Many law enforcement officers, police recruits, and military operators already know Mr. Southard very well. He frequently teaches the local police and military personnel.

I recently had the opportunity to learn how to effectively use this device at a training conference I was teaching at and now I am in the process of becoming a certified instructor in the use of it. I plan on teaching my police officers and martial arts students how to use this strange looking object to defend themselves, and in the case of my fellow police officers, to control the bad guy so that he can go to jail!

This story might be a work of Fiction but this author, and his impressive background, are Fact!
I happen to be an avid reader of martial arts and combat related books. I enjoy both technical books containing information of how to perform certain techniques but I also enjoy martial arts and related novels and books of fictional stories and characters. I especially enjoy those books that describe police or law enforcement officers who are involved in stories where martial arts play a strong role in the theme and storyline.

Glima: The Vikings’ Forgotten Art
Everyone has heard of the Vikings but who has heard of Glima?
Glima is an ancient form of unarmed Viking wrestling that was a very effective form of combat in the 8th through 11th centuries. Vikings used all sorts of weaponry such as swords, axes, knives, and other items but they also had a structured form of unarmed combatives. The word “Glima” means “A Flash,” and it is also an Old Norse expression meaning “To Fight.” Currently, Glima is still practiced, most commonly in Iceland, in spite of its larger origins throughout old Scandinavia.
Which program, system, or style of law enforcement armed and unarmed combatives or defensive tactics is the best? Ask any martial arts instructor, police instructor, or military instructor, OR any student of any of the systems out there and you will receive a different answer. I will tell you which is the best at the end of this article.
There are so many who think that there is “one way”, “a way,” “their way,” that is the “ONLY way!” This is not pragmatically possible, nor is it philosophically possible. Even in mathematics there can be different methods to solve the equation (although the correct answer will be the same); mathematics is a hard physical science. Combat is not so scientific and has different “solutions” that all work. We only wish the solution was that simple that “One way” would always save our lives.
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!
