Self-Defence Courses as

'How Not To Die Guy'


Keep yourself and your loved ones safe, using the skills I have learned over the span of my careers in the NZ Special Forces and Australian Police to help you learn some of the most effective Self-Defense tactics possible.

Anyone of any background can learn these skills.

This is not a sport, there is no referee, and Bad Guys don't play by the rules.
HNTD does not require years of fancy training or practice.

I designed these courses to teach you how to stay alive when you really need it.

I shortcut what you need to learn into a fun, realistic online program that anyone can do. Based on hundreds of years of training soldiers, spies, covert operators, police, and myself - it's now available to you.

Suitable for all Good People:

All Ages 16 +

Staff and Corporate Training

Elderly and Families

Busy Mums


Veterans and Tactical Athletes

Be sensible, take ownership.

Save your own life.


A truly violent situation has no rules, no referees and will almost always come as a surprise. Arm yourself with the knowledge and skills you need to win.

Proven by centuries of use by the Elite and Special Forces, turning everyday people into heroes, like Nancy Wake, Sir David Stirling, Captain William Fairbairn and Rex Applegate

“A really good introductory course on how not to die. My mate Angus and I signed up for Damian’s beginner course and we weren’t disappointed.

Within a few minutes went straight into it and learnt some no-nonsense moves and tactics to give trouble a wide birth or heaven forbid make a would-be-attacker change their mind.

Really simple, easy to remember and practical. Thanks Damian. “
