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!
