Brye Cooper

Founder/Chief Instructor SKS Self-Defense Programs.


Traditionally self-defense training is geared towards physically and aggressively training the individual to defend themselves in an aggressive or violent physical encounter, although this is indeed a major element of self-defense we believe at SKS that self-defense training goes beyond that of the physical techniques referred to in SKS as Hard Skills, that in fact there are many more benefits beyond that of the aforementioned. 


Life in general is a battle at different times and at many levels, with situations arising that would and will distract, invalidate or stop you from achieving your goals, the SKS philosophy is that of what we term The Defensive Lifestyle Mindset.


This Defensive Lifestyle mindset combines two elements of self-defense, the Hard Skills and the Soft Skills, or mental constituents, soft skills that develop confidence within the individual and give them the psychological tools and techniques required to survive in our 21stcentury environments. Once acquired these combined skill sets anable individuals to rapidly evaluate and confidently make the right decisions in problem situations, proactive decisions that will productively enhance their lives.
