My name is Nik Farooqui and I am the CEO/Director of Training Operations for S2 Strategic Defense. I’ve been involved with training for nearly 30 years and teaching for over 20 years. In my career I’ve owned 4 martial arts academies, taught 250+ seminars in 16 states and 4 countries, worked with over 100 law enforcement agencies, provide training platforms to corporate executives and Fortune 500 companies, been featured in dozens of magazines, and in simple terms…Teaching and Training is what I do best.


With an overwhelming request for my training and time, I wanted to design a platform to not only provide you with access to a few our most popular courses, taught in progression that is proven to work, give each student and entire toolbox of resources, and build a real community.


The S2 Online Academy took me nearly 3 years to design and implement because I didn’t want to just produce video courses with high speed information that doesn’t work, I wanted to produce courses that actually give my clients quality information and the right training methods for success. Afterall, you are taking the time and resources to learn from our programs, I owe it to each client to provide them the best information possible.The core value of all things S2 Strategic Defense/S2 Online Academy is to always keep the client’s demands as the top priority. That means we can’t “entertain” you with training that doesn’t apply to your lifestyle, but “educate” you with proven techniques, tactics, and training methods that you can use everyday!
