Our Reason for Being Here

The modern world is a place of potential threat, and if you’re not prepared, dire consequences may be faced. However, there is good news. You can recognize risks and threats to your well-being and take measures to maintain your peace and safety. Based on this premise, the mission of the Ministry of Defense is to help individuals and groups to realize the importance of self-protection and how they can use it to their advantage. Self-protection and martial arts are a way of life for Dr. D. Corbett Everidge and R. Glenn Snider, the founders of the Ministry of Defense. They channel martial arts and the study of self-protection as a lifestyle in order to live in peace.

The Ministry of Defense only provides custom designed courses and coaching programs. These training programs have been instrumental to the successes of multi-million dollar corporations, government agencies, civic and religious organizations, high net worth clients and celebrities, and everyday citizens. The defense strategies of these diverse clients are reviewed continuously to meet the needs of the client while mitigating the threats of the contemporary world.

The world view of the Ministry of Defense has been shaped to always be cognizant that danger could be lurking anywhere. To this end, clients are coached to realize that being safe and living in peace is their primary responsibility. M.O.D. believes that when properly coached and mentored, people can successfully protect themselves or their loved by their own merits.

To effectively coach the client on a personal level, M.O.D. combines a unique vision with years of experience in martial arts and real-world application. Glenn and Corbett strive to provide the best training and coaching to provide clients with the required knowledge and tools they need to protect themselves.
