Jason Child is co-owner of Defend Me, LLC., a defensive minded company that has two focuses; Martial Blade Concepts (MBC) and Mountain Storm Karate. Jason’s concentration is on MBC which is an edged-weapon system specifically designed to meet the needs of today’s concerned citizen and armed professional. Based on Michael Janich’s extensive analysis of the Filipino martial arts and many other systems, MBC takes combat-proven tactics and adapts them to modern tools, threats, and legal concerns. The result is a practical, easy-to-learn system that is ideally suited to modern self-defense.

Jason was introduced to MBC in 2014 and successfully tested for Associate Instructor in 2016. Together with his business partner, Tom Leake, Defend Me currently teaches MBC to students twice a week. Defend ME also offers multi-day and 1/2 day training sessions in introduction to knife self-defense and unarmed self-defense.
