Urban Self Defense

Urban Self Defense is the creation of Jason Carter, his vision was to bring the public a TV show that would assist them in taking an active role in their own personal safety through real life situations and modern information.  In June 2011 this was brought to life with the assistance of Bob Smith (RogersTV London Station Manger) and Rogers Communication. Season one which consisted of eight, 30 minute episodes aired September 2011 in London, St Thomas and Strathroy Ontario on RogersTV channel 13. Upon its release it quickly became one of the top watched shows on RogersTV London. It was with that, Jason and Bob decided to produce season two of Urban Self Defense for the London area view audience. With a larger production crew and returning assistant producer Tim O’Neill season two quickly surpassed season one in production and entertainment value with the filming of six more 30 minute episodes which were first aired in September 2012.
