Nik Farooqui

CEO / Director / Instructor

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!


They’re the results you can expect

The course was well put together and very well educated. Anyone can learn from this, and really gain a skill as long as they take time out to actually watch, study, and do the drills that Nik shows. I recommend this course to anyone that wants to learn a realistic approach to self defense. Nik does a great job taking your thru every step of the program!

This was my second experience with an Online Class and it is a really great product. I wanted to get all the way through the course before giving it a review even though I loved it from the start. Sometimes, polish is only applied to the front half of a course but I am happy to say that in this case it was maintained all the way through. Student Review: If you are new to Martial Arts or don't have a lot of experience this is a great program. It will walk you through the basics and get you up to speed with solid techniques and mindsets to help you survive. The progression is perfectly built upon, one piece after the other to help you grow and develop new skills. Instructors Review: If you teach and are looking for a great program that you can bring to your school this is it. With a fully downloadable and printable training manual this program offers you a comprehensive way to start building up new students. Any program that can be taken from a personal perspective and then adapted to be a teachable class is amazing. We will be adding it with our new students. Overall, this is a great program and a great value. Throw in the fact that Nik personally checked up on me and you get to join a Facebook Group that live streams sessions and an engaged instructor it is amazing. Most online courses are purchase and watch at your leisure. Nik's course is an interactive training environment that challenges you but also opens doors to a whole new world of training.

5 Stars. Great class. There are multiple reasons for 5 stars. The organization and presentation is excellent and comparable to the best online classes I have taken for work and continuing educational topics. Detailed notes are provided in the form of a PDF. These are complete and better than you would take yourself at a seminar. A video for each section of the notes is given. There is a structure to learning with retention, and Nik at S2 presents the curriculum in the best manner for online learning with retention. The consistency and professionalism of the videos adds to the ease of learning the content. The content is fantastic. Personally I loved the bonus section on multiple attackers. Where else or who else teaches multiple attackers in an easy to understand, effective manner. (No one). I used the printed PDF for personal notes including reminders and tips. Nik has such an obvious command of the topics that I trust his system. Looking forward to seeing more.

I'm really enjoying the course! It is set up similarly to an online college course so you get the benefit of manuals and videos and then get to see how much you learn not only from practicing the drills but also completing the tests. Nik does a great job of breaking down the material into easy follow along instructions and also explains the logic behind it. I like that Nik teaches techniques that are practical in use.
