I have been involved with Sean Ramey’s combat and defense systems for over 4 years and as a law enforcement officer, I can tell you that his approach and methods have given me more confidence and awareness in the streets with my ability to provide safety to the public.  He has helped me develop the high level skills needed to feel comfortable and in control on my feet or in an “on the ground” situation.  I have actually used some of Sean’s D.E.F.E.N.D. techniques on the job and have been very successful in even defusing situations before they became physical.  I believe in this system so much that I had my wife take Sean’s intro D.E.F.E.N.D. seminar.  This system is not just for military or law enforcement personnel, but for everyone from the young to the elderly.  You will know how to be aware, how to avert, and how to defend yourself no matter what the situation.  The knowledge gained is priceless and could be the difference between life and death.  I would encourage anyone to get the book and take a look!

My name is Scott Smith and I’m a Gracie Jiu Jitsu black belt. I’ve known and trained with Master Ramey for many years. Master Ramey is in my opinion one of the top TKD instructors in the country. I went up through the ranks with him in my early years. His knowledge and drive to be the best at what he does is inspiring and second to none. His understanding of self defense and its practical approach is incomparable. During one of our many lunches talking about the Martial Arts and its needs. He shared with me, he was going to write a book on self defense. What a great idea I thought…. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a better understanding of the simple tools to defending yourself!

“Thinking about my student relationship, my business relationship and our personal friendship you have shared so much with me and my family.  The most valued gift you have given me is the faith you have for my daughter and wife.  Your teachings of courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, indomitable spirit, and personal victory have become the foundation for which my family have stepped upon.  Your self less actions as a martial artist are more important than your teachings.  It is the action on your knowledge and experience that is true wisdom.”
