Mike Gillette Real Life Defense

Do you need personal defense skills in a hurry?

High-level samurai developed their techniques over a lifetime starting at a very young age.  Everyone in Japan counts their age from New Year’s Day, regardless of what month or day they were actually born on.  On the fifth day of the fifth month of the fifth year of life, samurai boys were inducted into training.    This is why what is now called kodomo no hi or child’s day (子供の日) was formerly known as Boy’s Day before political correctness neutered the country.

By the time samurai actually assumed combat functions, they had years of training under their belt.  Every aspect of their lives was ordered to make them proficient in their duties and centered on edged weapons combat.  Most of us in modern society do not have the time or support to develop such refined skills. 

How about you?  Do you feel like you’re being pulled in so many directions that finding the time for training is a real chore?


The security challenges facing us today require we develop skills that work in the real world.  We also need combat skills that are scalable to every situation we are likely to encounter and can be obtained in a short amount of time. 

If you need combat proficiency in a hurry, but do not have the time for high-level samurai training or could care less about the cultural esthetics, I recommend you look at Real Life Defense by Mike Gillette.

As a military and law enforcement professional that now focuses on tactical training, Mike is in demand as a consultant with a number of top agencies and exclusive private clients.  (He even did close protection work for Sylvester Stallone!) 

On top of all of his real-world experience in handling dangerous human threats, the main reason for his popularity is his ability to teach, anyone, how to be mentally and physically ready to defend themselves quickly and efficiently.

There are no shortcuts to acquiring martial skill, but you can streamline the learning curve when you cut to the essential tasks and focus on simply what works.  That is Mike’s specialty.  That is what Real Life Defense is all about.

Mike’s program was specifically designed to transform anyone into a force to be reckoned with (in other words, a hard target), even if they have no prior training.
