Paul Sharp Brings His Multi-Disciplinary Optimization Course to SBG HQ

Next month SBG’s law enforcement and self-defense superstar, Paul Sharp, will be gracing the SBG Portland HQ with his two-day Multi-Disciplinary Optimization Course. What is an MDOC? Not your typical seminar, the weekend is designed to cover a wide array of self-defense concepts, drawing on a breadth of knowledge that very few individuals alive can lay claim to, and made accessible to students at all levels of experience. The unique depth and breadth of knowledge that comes with Paul Sharp, paired with his skills at teaching fundamentals to students, is the reason he has become a hugely popular member of the SBG tribe, teaching at all of the most recent SBG camps.

Paul Sharp is a police officer with almost two decades of experience. Those near twenty years included stints in SWAT and as an undercover narcotics detective. Alongside that real-world experience, Paul is the graduate, and instructor, of multiple firearms, knife and self-defense courses. Paul combines this weapons and tactics expertise with an exhaustive knowledge of martial arts. With extensive experience in Filipino martial arts and Jeet Kune Do, boxing and BJJ, Paul has competed professionally across multiple disciplines, and is a BJJ black belt. On top of that he is now the regional director for SBG’s Mid-West region.

Paul Sharp’s previous multi-disciplinary optimization courses have received glowing reviews not just for the level of information being provided, but also the accessibility of the subject matter. Despite the ability to train top professionals at the highest level, his concepts, in true SBG fashion, are logical and applicable at all experience levels.

The seminar takes place on Saturday and Sunday, 28th & 29th of May. If interested, contact Zach Thornton at, or stop by the SBG Portland HQ to sign-up. Register early to save on this already excellent opportunity, at a reduced price for SBG members.
