Experiences that forged Franklin Joseph’s spirit
Mr. Franklin Joseph was reluctantly exposed to various aspects of sexual abuse and violent misconduct from the time of his birth in the New Delhi, India, slums. After enduring 22 to 25 years in harsh circumstances and facing street violence, he gradually transformed his terrible experiences into positive knowledge. He gained a deep understanding of crime, savagery & abuse from his background, which he combined with cutting edge logical information & expertise set he has since acquired, to create the basis of many of his current activities.
In his TEDx talk video, he showcases his dark humour, skills and knowledge of ‘Combat Science’ with a stunning opening line “I See Dead People” in a roundabout way referring to the way that absence of readiness against crime could be a lethal mix-up. After serving as a Creative Director, Project Manager, Senior Website Designer, and Search Engine Optimization for 11 years in the IT industry, he consciously resigned to pursue these projects.
His aim to educate others to understand and deal with cruelty and wrongdoing was developed while he was working as a freelancer for seven years with Mr. Kailash Satyarthi, Nobel Peace Prize Winner 2014.
Franklin Joseph’s Modern yet Radical Approach
Mr. Franklin Joseph, fundamentally reflects the evolving nature of self-defense, particularly the empowerment and education of women in this area. As crime is dynamic, ever-changing, and adaptable, so too should crime prevention methods and combat strategies, according to him and other trailblazers.
In order to advance the cause of further developing safety for men, women, and children, he has bravely overcome great barriers, often at the enormous sacrifice of his own priorities to his financial development or himself. No matter how much it costs, he clearly intends to achieve his main objective of creating a more secure world by providing proper training, preparation, and a thorough understanding of self-defense.

Certificates Awarded

That was in 2004. If my memory serves me well, my mother was diagnosed with cancer. Also was experiencing a difficult first breakup. As a geek, I lacked both psychological stability and physical strength, but I continued to be furious and despised what is going on. My personal main objectives when I first started practicing Krav Maga Self Defense were to develop psychological harmony and balance, achieve self-confidence, and mature as a person in the face of difficulties. At the time, I had a major focus on self-growth and did not envision a career as professionals or in the commercial corporate sector. Therefore, even after finishing countless Krav Maga Self Defense courses, I declined to receive my certification or misplaced many of them. In any case, these are a handful of these certificates that I currently own. ~ Franklin Joseph
