Training for Long Distance Students
A message from Ron Kosakowski to all students from outside of Connecticut.
I would personally like to invite you to be part of a slowly growing group of representatives/instructors in the martial art systems taught at the Practical Self-Defense Training Center. This is for the people who are sick and tired of the quick fixes many organizations offer and would like to become a real knowledgeable martial artist along with feeling comfort in knowing you can actually pull off the techniques you have learned. I promise you will eventually be able to defend yourself in any possible situation that could occur after training with me as long as there is consistency in your working out both with me and practicing as often as you could on your own free time. If you are presently involved in a martial art and you are an unbiased person who would like to pursue more knowledge in different styles, all the martial arts I teach is a great additive to your existing program.

Please note, this is a real education in martial arts, this is not a quick fix certification program.
If you are a school owner or would like to be and you don’t have Jun Fan Gung Fu/Jeet Kune Do, Kali (the Lacoste/Inosanto system or Pekiti Tirsia Kali), Kuntao or Integrated Grappling Systems (IGS is the PSDTC multi cultural grappling style) where you live. Provided you live too far to train daily at my school, I have a couple of different ways for you to spend as much time as possible learning these fighting methods and along with some time and effort, you can eventually become instructor level and teach these martial arts where you live.
To do this and do it correctly so it is more of a teacher/student relationship and not a commercial adventure, I have a few ways to get this accomplished. All in combination, this really works well so you are well guided with a precision martial art education.
Do you have a martial art school or a friend with one? You can sponsor me for seminars there at your school. You can also come here and train privately or semi-privately. I also hold workshops for long distant students… you can attend those when I have them. Getting everyone together is not easy but if you know way ahead of time, you will be able to plan ahead so keep in touch.
This is important to know and I have to repeat it again…I do not give away instructorship; it is work on your part to achieve such a prestigious rank representing my martial arts. But you will become a good martial artist understanding and able to pull of practical material. I take great pride in my students which today is unusual. Many people, I noticed, either go for the Jeet Kune Do/Grappling or the Kuntao, though Kali, of course, is also in peoples interest. Look through this website to see what exactly I teach so you know what you want to learn ahead of time. That is if you have not looked through the web site already.
Let me know if this appeals to you. I have a treasure of knowledge from being in the martial arts for well over 40 years. I am looking for very serious people only for this venture. If this does appeal to you and you are one of those serious people, I look forward to having you as a student and a representative for my school. I enjoy creating good knowledgeable martial artists.
Feel free to write or call me if you need to know more. I am looking forward to hearing from you
Also, please take note that I do hold workshops throughout the year at the Practical Self Defense Training Center in Waterbury Connecticut, USA. These workshops are held mainly for my private & semi private students although regular class members do occasionally attend as well. There are also many people from other styles that like to cross train and enhance their knowledge that come to the Practical Self Defense Training Center workshops. This is a great way for all Practical Self Defense Training Center students regardless of where they are from to get to know each other, train and have fun without the politics you see in many other styles out there.
***Please note before you arrange any kind of training…the people involved with the PSDTC do not care about politics in any style of martial arts. Everyone comes here to gain knowledge, train and have fun doing it. As I said before, some are here to eventually be an instructor in the martial arts I teach and others just want to add to their martial knowledge along side of the fighting system they are already involved with. I just want to put out good quality martial artists along with the understanding of loyalty and respect that is expected from a martial artist, which as you noticed is something that is becoming extinct at many other martial art schools now a days. Your skills will constantly be observed every time I see you to insure quality control in whatever area of martial art style(s) you wish to pursue. For the people who choose to have private training, sometimes there will be different students from my local area, in which you will have a variety of different levels you can work with during your training sessions. Anyone not following these rules will be dismissed.
For costs and times you would like to come in and do private or semi private lessons, feel free to call 203-596-9073 or 203-802-8533 and ask for me, Ron, to get full information you will need to get started. As for workshop training or classes you can also e-mail and leave us your name and address and we will put you on a e-mailing list.
***Guaranteed after every personal training session or workshops with me, you will see a big difference in your fighting abilities in kicking, boxing, trapping and grappling range. If you decide to pursue the Filipino martial arts, the empty hand fighting or weapon use and defenses from Kali and/or Kuntao will change your abilities. Satisfaction is guaranteed or your money will be refunded.
