I trained daily and I trained hard to be the best I could be. I had fights in school throughout elementary and Jr. High. Once being ambushed by a couple of guys over a girl. I never lost. One of the two ended up in the hospital and one was treated and released. My father whom had been a boxer taught me self-control and how to react with temperament, mercy and proper actions for each situation I faced. I became a Christian at 12 years old and my faith has helped shape my the way I see the world. After being involved in multiple engagements that involved physical hand to hand and weapons being pulled on me, I developed a mindset that my first instructor taught me. It may sound mean, yet it works to avoid collateral damage to people and property. If you can’t escape, and you can’t evade, you are then forced into physical action or reaction. You must do three things to survive and win. 1. Be Violent. (A broken limb or joint on your opponent can stop the attack) 2. Be Fast (Unexpected) 2. Be Effective (Whatever you do, make sure it works) Taking out an one of the senses on your opponent can help you survive.

This training and mindset helped me to hone my skills and utilize them in the US Army, Law Enforcement and in Life. Walk softly and carry a big stick. I started decades ago offering martial art and self-defense classes along with In-service LE and military hand to hand training. A brief bio is shown below. “Stop the Attack” Co. is here to show you how to utilize simple yet effective fighting skills. We cover multiple areas with our training subscriptions. Physical, mental, emotional and situational training are just a part of what you will be learning. As a Christian, husban and father, and veteran you have my promise that I will do everything in my power to help you not be a victim.

Dr. Steve Snodgrass, M.D., F.A.C.S.

Steven Snodgrass, M.D., F.A.C.S. Is a former Chief of Surgery (HCA Greenview Hospital, KY), a long-standing member of the American Medical Association, a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, a published author (scientific papers, books; fiction/nonfiction), entrepreneur, a globally-featured, gallery-represented artist, and a sixth-degree black belt in Aggressive Reactive Combat.

As a General-Vascular Surgeon, Dr. Snodgrass spent his stellar career (no formal complaints/no malpractice suits) treating patients who suffered from the most serious illnesses (cancer, peripheral vascular disease) and/or injuries.  He operated on many patients that were victims of violent crimes which included beatings, knife attacks , and gunshot wounds.  He has witnessed firsthand how these types of injuries affect patients and their families.  The costs are high.  The patient may never return to their normal state after such an attack; mentally, physically, or financially.  Unfortunately, a significant number of these cases result in the patient’s death.

Ironically, Dr. Snodgrass has on several occasions had his own life threatened by the very patients he saved.  Drug addicts, convicts, and mentally-ill patients make up this list.  One patient stole a gun, ran over her husband with a car, and told him she was going to kill Dr. Snodgrass, his wife and children because she falsely claimed him as her lover.  For three days, he endured the stress associated with this threat until the patient was caught and placed in a mental institution with a diagnosis of schizophrenia.  Of course her claims were wildly false, but in her disturbed mind, they were true; and that’s all that mattered.

Dr. Snodgrass has always had an interest in the martial arts.  Sure, self defense is a major reason, but this is also because of the striking similarities between martial arts and the art of surgery.  One is destructive:  One is constructive, but they have one very important thing in common; human anatomy.  To be a proficient martial artist or surgeon, one must master anatomy.

With his vast surgical expertise and knowledge of anatomy, in 1989 he began his study of karate with Grandmaster Ken Eubanks and earned his black belt.  After Sensei Eubanks passed away, Dr. Snodgrass began his lessons in Aggression Reactive Combat under the tutelage of Grandmaster Frank Williams, PhD.  To date, Dr. Snodgrass has earned his sixth degree black belt at the age of 66 and plans to continue his studies until he reaches the highest possible ranking.

Dr. Williams and Dr. Snodgrass shared this most-unusual teacher/student relationship to the point of combining their decades of experience to co-author a one-of-a-kind martial arts book, The Equation.  It details how and why certain fighting techniques are so effective as they relate to human anatomy.  It illustrates the damage done to the body’s tissues and organs as a result of the particular technique.  They took it a step further by creating, STOP THE ATTACK!  As we all know, the world is “on fire,” and violent attacks are occurring at an alarming rate.  Their goal is to arm you with unprecedented knowledge and awareness which can help you out of a tough situation.  They want to prevent you and your family from becoming victims of violence by using combat-proven techniques that give you a fighting chance.

We ask you to please join us and see for yourself.  As a surgeon, I’ve never seen more effective techniques that may indeed SAVE YOUR LIFE.

Thank you.
