Marc Gardner is a father of 5 and truly cares for the safety of others. He realized the importance of protecting oneself from attackers and preditors at an early age when people close to him were victimized. He began his study through youth martial arts and wrestling. Being the oldest of 10 also taught him to always be aware of his surroundings and recognize potential violence and aggression.
It wasn't until he lived abroad in another country for a couple of years that he realized the only true way to be safe is to start from the inside with self-empowerment and confidence. As the years went by he started a family of his own and saw the importance of protecting them from the craziness of the world out there. He knew he couldn't be with them all the time so he wanted to teach them something that would train them to be aware of potential danger and thus keep themselves safe and live with that inner confidence. As part of his early college years he covered early childhood developement to understand children better.
