At Revolution Self Defense it is our goal to provide positive, life-changing experiences for all of our students. By striving to constantly improve our program we are able to provide martial arts classes that are not only fun and engaging, but are also proven to bring out the best in our students so that they can achieve their goals.

Below are some examples of what makes Revolution Self Defense a great place to train:

Professional Instruction: Being a professional takes a lot more effort than just claiming to be one. Not only are our instructors experienced martial artists, they also have a wealth of experience teaching and training outside of the martial arts world. For example, our Chief Instructor, Scot Schwichow is a former trainer for a major pharmaceutical corporation, while Instructor Glenn Murphy trained and managed the education team at the prestigious London Science Museum. Our instructors also attend training and seminars designed to improve their teaching abilities in order to offer the best classes to our students.

Top Level Facility: The iconic karate dojo is a beautiful and pristine training hall with hardwood floors and walls. For the arts that we practice hardwood floors are not optimal, however, we still want to provide our students with a training facility that they can be proud of. We keep our training and seating areas clean and we have high quality training mats and equipment for use in class.

Practicing What We Preach: We ask our students to train hard, set goals and take pride in our school. The same is asked of our instructors. Every instructor at Revolution Self Defense is also a dedicated athlete and martial arts practitioner. They train every week, stays in good physical shape and serve as a role model to their students. Every true martial artist is a student for life, those that claim otherwise often still have a lot to learn.

Mutual Respect: Our Karate students are asked to address instructors with the title of Mister or Sir. To earn respect one must show respect, therefore our instructors also address our students and answer questions with the title of Sir or Ma’am. In addition, before a competition our fighters and coaches wish our opponent luck and conduct themselves with class no matter the result of the contest.

Humility: While we are proud of our school and our achievements in the martial arts, we feel that humility is also necessary. We realize that to truly master the martial arts takes a lifetime of dedicated practice.

Community Involvement: Revolution Self Defense believes in giving back to the community as well as those around the world who face hardship. Through events planned and hosted at Revolution Self Defense our students have helped raise thousands of dollars and supplied goods that have been donated to various causes including: The Clayton No Drug Club, The Clayton Mid Day Rotary Club, Harbor domestic violence shelter, and the families devastated by the recent natural disasters in Haiti and Japan.

Successful Students: Within less than a year of opening our school we began producing fighters for ring sports. We have students who compete in Muay Thai, MMA, K1 Kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Not only are our students competitive against the best competition in tournaments like the WKA North American Championship and NAGA events, they have racked up many Gold and Silver medals in the process. In addition, our Chief Instructor has been called in to assist as either a striking or jiu jitsu coach and cornerman for fighters from other gyms.

About Our Chief Instructor

Originally from Philadelphia, Scot was an underachieving student who was small, weak, nonathletic and lacked focus. Because public schools in his town were especially tough, he became the target of bullies. This cycle of abuse led Scot to having no confidence, poor anger management skills and to engage in negative behavior.

At age 13, his parents enrolled him in a karate program to build his confidence. By age 15, he ended the cycle of bullying in his environment and has made it his life's mission to help people develop skills and confidence so they can avoid the challenges he had as a youth.

Scot went on to college, earned a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and became a member of two national honor societies. After a successful career in sales for one of the most respected companies in the world, he has gone on to pursue his passion of positively impacting the lives of as many people as possible.

Scot opened two businesses that focus on developing skills and confidence in people. In 2009, he founded Revolution Modern Martial Arts that helps kids and adults empower themselves through karate and martial arts training.

He is also the owner of a Fit Body Boot Camp franchise location that is helping people achieve the body of their dreams through fitness and health. He plans to open more businesses to expand the impact he is having on his local community.

Scot is also an author on parenting with “Samurai Parenting Secrets: 7 Steps to Give Your Child More Focus, Discipline, and Confidence from a Martial Arts Expert” reaching #1 Best Seller status. He has spoken to small and large groups about confidence, goal setting, and skill building through live events, his Unlearn Initiative podcast, and on television.

He now lives the country lifestyle in Clayton, North Carolina with his wife, son and their dog Lucky.
