Martial Arts History

I Kent Stark, managing partner of SDS, have been involved in Martial Arts since I was 10 years old, starting with Tai-kwon Do as a kid. I then started training boxing in 2010 with PTL in Prairie du Chien, WI. While there I met a Muy Thai Professional by the name of Jon Holly and he started teaching May Thai until about 2016. When I got into the Security industry I found Russian Systema through a Security Colleague and dug into that for ten years. In 2021 I got interested in Brazilian Jui Jitsu and joined a local gym in Cody WY called Potter Self Defense and started my BJJ walk there, trained at Humaita Texas, seminars with Pedro Sauer, and finally landed with Alan Baker at AMAC (Atlanta Martial Arts Center) where I trained and became an affiliate both personally and through my business. We here are proud to call ourselves connected to Team Baker!

Alan Baker - PRT

Security and LEO ONLY

All countermeasures employed by professional bodyguards should reduce the risk to those they protect. The executive protection agent seeks to reduce the risk to the client by avoiding confrontation. The professional bodyguard would prefer to evacuate the client if faced with conflict.

Sometimes, avoidance does not work, evacuation is not the answer, and sometimes the appropriate countermeasure is applying physical force. This system provides the tools necessary for that reasoned response.

With the increased popularity of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), professional bodyguards face an opponent who has raised awareness and access to effective training. Despite proper preparations to avoid conflict, the professional bodyguard or personal protection specialist may be faced with a threat that requires immediate engagement.
