Welcome to Street Defense Research Institute (SDRI), where we teach 'Survival Through Wisdom' on ancient Egyptian combative concepts for personal protection. Our purpose is to deliver the most efficient forms of training in preparing a person with effective principles to properly handle a confrontation.

The Institute was established by Teanis Tillmon as a result of his extensive research in the areas of Kemet aka (Ancient Egypt) self- defense, and street survival programs. He has taught these unique concepts to many such as: law enforcement professionals, private security officers, and citizens.


Our mission is to provide a 21st century understanding of how the ancient Egyptians applied personal defense to urban problems and how we can use them today. How is this done? By compiling sources of combat data, use of force, and information to create practical ways of using them in modern everyday situations.
