"The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield and skill is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental."

John Steinbeck

After the tragic events of September 11, 2001, Yousef Sansour began working with various U.S. government agencies in a counter terrorism role (CT).  These organizations include the FBI, Department of Homeland Security, United States Secret Service, and the Department of Defense. These highly specialized missions saw Sansour in six of the seven continents. During his time abroad, Sansour dedicated himself to the defense of the U.S. in a CT role. As the founder of Esoteric, LLC., he has provided training to military and law enforcement agencies across the country. These agencies include, but are not limited to, the FBI, DEA, Department of Homeland Security, United States Secret Service, U.S. Marshals, U.S. Army, and the U.S. Navy, just to name a few. Sansour has more than 20 years of SWAT experience with a local law enforcement agency.
