Experiences that forged Franklin Joseph’s spirit
Mr. Franklin Joseph was born into the slums of New Delhi, India, and since the beginning, he was reluctantly presented to certain components of sexual maltreatment and rough wrongdoing. After spending 22 to 25 years in harsh circumstances and facing brutality on the streets, he gradually transformed his terrible experiences into positive knowledge. The foundation of many of his current endeavours stems from his first-hand knowledge of crime, savagery & abuse in his past, which he combined with up-to-date, logical knowledge & expertise set that he has since acquired.
In his TEDx talk video, he displays his dark humour, ‘Combat Science’ expertise and knowledge with a stunning opening line “I See Dead People,” alluding in a roundabout way to the idea that not being prepared for crime could be a deadly mix-up. He voluntarily resigned from his position as a Creative Director, Project Manager, Senior Website Designer, and Search Engine Optimization specialist after serving the IT industry for 11 years & took up these projects.
He also spent seven years working as a freelancer for Mr. Kailash Satyarthi, Nobel Peace Prize Winner 2014, during which time the idea for his mission to educate people on how to understand and deal with cruelty and injustice was born.
Franklin Joseph’s Modern yet Radical Approach
Mr Franklin Joseph, essentially symbolizes the evolving nature of self-defense, particularly the empowerment and education of women in this area. Like other trailblazers, he believes that since crime is dynamic and always evolving, so too should crime prevention strategies and combat techniques.
He has overcome great challenges to further advance the cause of improving safety for men, women, and children — often at the incredible sacrifice of his own aspirations to his financial development or his daily life. Whatever the cost, it is clear that his efforts will achieve his main objective of creating a more secure world by providing proper training, preparation, and a thorough understanding of self-defense.
