Who is Jermaine Andre and What is His Story?
Discussing how and when the concept of self-defense training evolved is vital to ensure that you have a better understanding of the online course. Let me begin to describe the same in the simplest possible manner:
The Early Days:
Jermaine Andre is a Hall of Fame martial arts coach and a muay thai expert. In the initial days, Jermaine traveled from one country to another and participated in various martial art competitions to make a living. In those days, the pay was less and at times Jermaine was completely broke.
In order to compensate for the lack of money, Jermaine backed up as a bouncer and even a personal bodyguard. This is when he started to get involved in brawls with drunken men and was liable to get hurt or hurt others in the act.
This is when he decided to change the traditional martial art tactics and adopt new fighting styles for restraining drunk and aggressive assaults. He was still broke but luck was on his side when he was approached by the police chief. The cop asked Jermaine to demonstrate his fighting skills.
The Evolution of the Muay Thai Sprawl Self Defense Program:
The system that Jermaine had developed for controlling drunken brawlers turned out to be an instant hit amidst the police personnel. It became popular and soon Jermaine witnessed several offers pouring on him from all sides. Apart from police personnel, even civilians, women and children, seemed keen to learn his art.
The fighting system that Jermaine developed ensured that even women and children could stop attackers 98% of the time. He focused on the application aspect of the fighting style rather than the theoretical aspect, which is why this fighting mechanism is so effective in the real world scenario.
The 15 Year Process:
It took Jermaine 15 years to perfect his fighting system. During those years, he participated in professional mixed martial art competitions, trained bodyguards, police personnel and even celebrities.
During the evolution phase, Jermaine laid emphasis on developing the self-confidence level, the fighting techniques as well as thought patterns to perfect this fight-system.
The final result was that simple folks could defend themselves against larger attackers, disarm armed attackers (knives), disarm attackers with firearms, ward off home invasions and even knock out opponents twice their size.
The Awards, Recognition and Achievements:
Jermaine has been awarded a certificate of excellence by the International Law Enforcement Educators and Trainers Association. He has also been actively involved in guarding elite clients and celebrities and has been actively training all sorts of martial art styles including weapon retention, home invasion, detecting psycho behaviors, use of protective force, filing reports etc. for the past 15 years.
He was inducted in the martial art hall of fame (the United States division) in the year 2012 and he is also a published author (with over 14 books on self-defense to his credit). Jermaine firmly believes that apart from improving self confidence, you should also be compassionate towards others.
It is vital to note that Jermaine has opened his own security firm titled, “Impact Security Services”. He uses this firm to train bodyguards to keep their clients safe.

What is Included in this Course?
The main intention of developing the Muay Thai Sprawl Self Defense System is to ensure that average people (with no prior self defense training) can defend themselves against attackers. This training is provided online via an eBook.
Here is a chapter-wise breakup of the course for better understanding:
Lesson # 1
In the very first lesson, you are taught to be prepared to face the worst by becoming aware of your surroundings. You are taught the art to think correctly in order to ensure that you are able to attack and defend yourself in the most suitable manner. Jermaine also focuses on the art of identifying a possible attacker.

The second lesson discusses ways and means of avoiding a sucker punch. By mastering five different fighting ranges, you are able to first identify and then counter a sucker punch in the most suitable manner.

The Advantages and Disadvantages of Jermaine Andre’s Self Defense Fighting System
Like any other product or service, this one too has its fair share of pros and cons attached. let me walk you through both these in brief:
@ The Simplicity and Perfection – Jermaine has formulated flawless fighting system that is free from complications. It is not only easy to master the moves but easier to execute them in practical scenario.
Unlike regular self-defense courses, there is no need for crazy practice sessions to master fighting techniques. In just a few days, you are prepared to protect yourself from the worst situations.
@ Price is Low – The entire package is worth $99 but Jermaine has offered a special discount, which in turn makes this a highly affordable course. I paid just $19 for everything.
@ A Practical Perspective – This course offers a fresh perspective towards resolving crisis scenario, which in turn ensures that you learn the latest fighting moves that are known to work in practical scenario.
@ No More Traveling Involved – Unlike traditional courses, you do not need to travel from one place to another to master street fighting. You can simply sit at home and work on your computer to ensure that you learn the latest fight moves at home.
@ Taught by a Hall of Fame Awardee – The most important aspect of the Muay Thai Sprawl Self Defense System is its teacher. Jermaine is a Hall of Fame inductee in the Martial Art League and a professional fighter with a highly reputed track record spanning 15 years. Hence, his work is completely trustworthy in nature.
@ The Boredom Buddy – Like all other online courses that compel you to learn at home, this one too is no exception to the rule. If you want to learn this street fighting method, you need to be self-motivated. There is absolutely no involvement of a teacher or the presence of students in this course.
@ The Heart of a Fighter – Despite mastering all the moves taught by Jermaine, you cannot hope to develop a fighter’s heart. No course (including this one) can guarantee you this.
What are the Best Self Defense Moves for a Beginner?
If you are a woman then, experiencing sexual assaults or verbal abuse is but an obvious scenario. More than 80% women (at some point in their lives) have experienced abuse of such type. Sometimes, a physical assault can get really ugly (even fatal). So, the need of the hour is to learn how to defend yourself against an attacker. This is also true for males.
Here are a few tips for the same:
Knee to the Groin & Eye Gouge:
The most effective way to fend off a surprise attack is by poking the eyeballs of your assailant with the tips of your finger. You may also make use of your thumb effectively for the same. So, make eye contact with the assaulter and jab his eyeballs with either one or both hands (using your thumb or the first two fingers to good use).
Another effective way for a layman with no prior fight training experience is to smash a knee or shin onto the groin of the attacker. If you are too close to the attacker then, a knee strike makes sense. In case you are slightly further away from the attacker then, a shin strike is more effective.
Just remember that while executing either shin strike or a knee strike, your body needs to be perfectly balanced (on the balls of your feet). The force of the blow needs to be generated via the hips. Moreover, you should never lose your balance (so your follow through action too needs to be smooth).
Open Palm Strikes:
Another effective way to escape the grip of an attacker is to use palm strikes effectively. All you need to do is flex your wrist so as to allow the palm to strike the opponent. Basically, the palm closest to your wrist shall do the maximum damage. Smash your palm upwards to his chin. You may strike the throat and even the base of the nose.
Make sure that you make use of your ‘good’ arm for delivering these strikes. Always maintain a balanced stance before and after delivering these strikes. The end result would be a disoriented attacker. I have also seen women slap the attacker’s ears with open palms. A forceful slap can easily disorient an attacker.
Striking the Enemy with Your Elbow:
The third most effective way to defend yourself is via the means of elbow strikes. These are effective if used properly. The temple, face, chin and even solar plexus of the attacker can be targeted via elbows. If the opponent is holding onto you then, elbow strikes are an ideal way to shake yourself loose.
Elbow strikes are devastating indeed. You can even strike an attacker who is sneaking up on you from behind. Simply turn your face, brace your body and rotate your shoulder towards the attacker. Your elbow shall also move in the same direction thereby striking the attacker in the face (or whichever spot you pick).
Breaking the Attacker’s Grip:
If an attacker is gripping your body from behind then, simply push your weight forward to unbalance the thug. Then, strike his face with your elbow. Stomp his foot with your shoe. You may even straighten your hands in the air (hand’s up position) and slide your body towards the ground. This action generates a momentum that allows you to slip free of a bear hug.
In case someone is gripping you from behind thereby pinning your arms then, you should shift your weight towards any one side of the attacker’s body. Place one leg behind the attacker’s body and use your hands to strike his crotch (punch, slap, hammer fist etc.). If you are strong enough then, you can simply lift him up by hooking your arm in between his legs and throw him on the ground. This should stagger the attacker or even render him unconscious.
Arm Yourself with Everyday Accessories:
It may seem rather weird yet a simple looking pen can prove to be a deadly weapon. If you are habitual of carrying a pen along then, you could inflict serious injuries to the attacker. Make a hammer fist and allow the writing point to emit from one end of the fist. Aim and strike your attacker at will.
Your handbag can be turned into a weapon. Simply hold it via its strap and slap the loaded bag across the attacker’s face. You can even strike his groin. Pins to hold a bun can become a blunt edged knife to strike with. If you wear heels then, breaking a pointed heel and using it as a hammer-fist weapon is a great way to overcome an attacker.
With the 100% satisfaction guarantee ensuring that your money is kept completely safe for the next 60 days, the Muay Thai Self Defense System seems to be reliable enough.
I have personally given Jermaine’s self-defense eBook a fair trial and I find it to be effective enough. To be very honest, I have not gotten the opportunity to try it in a practical scenario but what I have learnt so far has developed my confidence level.
The user reviews that I have read so far are also positive in nature. This in turn has further strengthened my belief in this system. Besides, the price too is well within the range of most budget conscious students ($19).
If I were to give my opinion on the Muay Thai Sprawl Self Defense System then, I would not hesitate recommending it to people that are not trained in physical combat methods. Even civilians who wish to defend their loved ones from a sadist attacker should try and read this eBook at all costs.
