Our self-defense training develops needed active observation and awareness abilities to identify a potential threat while taking the proper measures to avoid instead of engaging. When avoidance is not an option, offensive/counter-offensive non-contact and contact tactics are utilized to engage and/or neutralize a threat. Counter-offensive measures in a contact range are employed to neutralize the following attacks: Pushes, grabs, holds/locks/chokes, punches and other hand/arm strikes, knees/kicks, takedowns, ground attacks, multiple opponents, and weapons – all within different environmental scenarios.

Our modern day, starved-for-time culture may not allow much time for real self-defense training. Adding to this challenge, many martial art schools spend too much time on "katas" and trivial practices for the sake of tradition. However, learning how to effectively defend yourself with direct self-defense strategies, drills, and skill testing is vital. The SENTE™ SDX Program allows for any individual to build proficiency in a very short period of time.

The SDX combatives are based on practical training methods that anyone can use right away. After developing effective basics, training for specific environmental conditions and situations add to the practicality, adaptability, and effectiveness of the training.

Just like all aspects to SENTE™, this contextual program is a no-nonsense approach to self-defense. Practitioners will learn effective skills as fast as possible without compromising the quality of strategy or tactics. Learning to defend yourself is priority number one. Always.
