I wanted to use the training I received over many years to keep my fellow man safe. I am tired of seeing people become victims from not fighting back or the ability to help themselves due to lack of purpose or training. I don’t like to see people get mislead by bullshit artists. At Gutter Fighting Secrets we are committed to helping you become the Ultimate Tactician. Todays world is full of challenges on every front and we realize most of them do not involve physical confrontation. While the core of what we do remains self-defense and combatives, we prefer to use the term SELF PRESERVATION, as this encompasses the entirety of our mission.

Mission statement: "Knowledge is Power"

How we teach you to become a

Truly Capable Warrior


We will accomplish our mission by not only discussing subject matter,

but going in to topics that other coaches tend to avoid. 

I firmly believe when it comes to learning new "hard target skills" 


That Repetition Is The Key To Success

To keep re-covering these topics until they start to become
second nature. In this way you can learn to react quickly,

faster, and more efficiently.  Furthermore, I believe that preventing the situation from

happening when possible, is the best outcome that any warrior could ask for.

 “Hence to fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence;

supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting.

The best victory is when the opponent surrenders of its own accord before

there are any actual hostilities... It is best to win without fighting”- Sun Tzu 

Of course, if all that should fail... It is also important to have the right strategies to make

it out alive. We teach these not as two separate strategies, but as one.  

“If you know the enemy and know yourself,

you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.”– Sun Tzu

If you’re ready to start acquiring skills that will take your game to the next level quickly and

put you far above and beyond the masses... I invite you to start your journey to become a


After All, Knowledge is Power, and I want you to be empowered with the right skills

to keep you and yours safe. 

Please Remember...


You are your first and last line of Defense!

The GFS MISSION To Teach people how to become "Hard Targets"

Our mission is to go far beyond the typical self-defense products that are flooding the market with largely irrelevant information. While learning defensive and offensive tactics is necessary and sure, even entertaining, if you focus on just combatives,it leaves you with a HUGE GAP in your survival strategies. I know this because when I started my own journey I bought a Boat Load of these products myself. After years of studying them I eventually found out they are all pretty much the same thing, just packed in different fancy wrappers; explained with impressive sounding terminology to make you Feel like you’re getting something special.  


I don’t care how you feel… I care how you respond, when the situation developes. I want to make you a HARD TARGET.
