  • Self Defense 5000

    If you are a female, and/or you have children and you do not want to be raped, kidnapped, or murdered, Self Defense 5000 is for you. According to the Department of Justice, "Someone will be raped every two minutes in America." We teach females, children and certain disabled people how to stop rapists, kidnappers and murderers. Whereas traditional martial arts, it would take a minimum of 10 years to have any person fully skilled to stop an attacker. At SD5, we can have even a 9-year-old fully trained from 33 minutes to one hour to stop even a 325-pound attacker all by herself. A traditional martial arts school will charge minimum $25.00 per month (for ten years, your cost would total $ 3,000.00 with those other guys). At SD5, you make a one-time payment of only $ 299.99. It is your choice. Pay a minimum of $ 25.00 per month to learn some watered-down martial arts school where it will take you a minimum of 10 years to acquire the necessary skills to stop a violent attacker. Think of how many two minutes are in 10 years. Get an SD5 download class and learn black-belt skills that can save your life right now! Now, it's up to you.

  • Street Science Self Protection Principles

    I am a Houston-based self-protection instructor. I have been a martial artist for 15 years and have won several city, state, and world titles. Since then, I have served in the United States Army and have dedicated myself to studying reality based self protection as well as teaching others in a way that no martial arts-experience is necessary.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Revolution Muay Thai

(11 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I love what I do because I get to interact with people on a level that isn't an everyday occurrence in their day-to-day lives. I get to teach people how to defend themselves, how to get in shape, and how to improve themselves as a person, all through Muay Thai, which is the thing I have a fierce passion for. The fact that I am able to share that with people and the opportunity to see how it changes their lives in a positive way make what I do even more rewarding.

Who inspired you to start your own business?

I still maintain my day job, but I am looking and working towards a goal to where I can be free from a cubicle cell from 8 to 5 so that I can be where I can do what I love. As the saying goes, if you love what you do, it's not work!
