S.E.R.T.+ SYSTEM FOUNDER PAUL MCINTYRE
While training in traditional martial arts for over 25 years, and working in personal protective services for 5 of those years, Paul has earned a unique perspective on what works, where danger lurkes and how to manage it as effectively as possible.
Traditional martial arts often neglect the very real issue of voilence that can be encountered from predators, the most prevalent of which are known assailants. Having a system to manage your environment more successfully, knowing what you can expect, and training hands on to reduce the chances of freezing under stress can save your life.
Through years of teaching and training, he came to realize that most self defense systems only focus on one thing, the target/attacker...and how to "take him down fast". This neglects the greater parts of the encounter, and where you can avoid conflict all together if trained properly, but still be trained on managing an attacker effectively. That is why he created the S.E.R.T.+ System, to offer a very direct way to manage each of the core 4 areas involved in any violent encounter.
Paul is a husband and father of three young daughters who will face the same forms of violence you face day to day. He is very motivated to help turn the tide against would be attackers and teach the skills you need to make a difference.
