Larry Wick began his training in the martial arts more than 40 years ago. Wick, a veteran instructor and high-ranked Tang Soo Do black belt, sits on the World Tang Soo Do Karate Association board of directors and is ranked as a fifth-dan international instructor. Wick has been teaching in Fairbanks, Alaska, for more than 25 years.
In 1992 he created and produced his first self-defense program called Tactical Street Fighting Survival. In 2002, after 10 years of intense training and testing, Wick created Split Second Survival, a gun and knife self-defense program for citizens, military and law enforcement.
His current project is called Res-pect, which is an acronym for Restraint Elimination System - Practical Effective Control Techniques. Res-pect is being developed for youth facilities, hospital security, schools and autistic programs.
