No. The confidence in our program is such, that we believe a training contract is unnecessary. If it becomes apparent that we cannot meet your needs or expectations, you may simply stop training.
Do we offer a guarantee?
No one can offer a guarantee that you will prevail in a violent encounter. However, in regards to training, PDT will provide you with “tools and techniques” that will increase your chances of survival when and if you are faced with those situations. Ultimately, you are the best judge of whether your expectations can be reasonably fulfilled.
What is the martial-arts background of the PDT System TM?
The PDT System TM is not a traditional martial art. However, many of our techniques come from a combination of Israeli, Korean, Pilipino, and Brazilian defense systems. In addition, we train many defensive tactics currently used by law enforcement and the military. We have done away with the formality that many other martial arts have held on to over the years. Our philosophy is ”If it’s simple, effective and appropriate…..use it.”
Do you award belts for advancement?
Yes. We offer a Black Belt (First Degree) and Black Belt (Second Degree). Belts are awarded only by achievement and competency, not by the amount time spent in training. In addition, there are no belt-testing fees
