If it’s to be, it’s up to me…

If it’s to be, it’s up to me…If you were always interested in action, to be ready for everything, to be strong, to be able to face any challenge and become what you always dreamed of. Also, do not wait – enrol now and by 2018, your life is changed and you can start in a high income career in the private upmarket security industry.

Robert H. Schuller (1998) explains that “Sometimes we are our own worst enemies, putting roadblocks of negative thinking in the path of life.” Find more about the author and book at:


A poem by Abraham, L,  illustrates this saying in detail, THE POEM is also available at


If it’s to be, it’s up to me, determination fuel with faith,
A strong desire. Not just the thoughts of good intentions alone,
Put actions in place, and follow through to the end.

Think not of the impossible until you’ve tried,
What’s the worst that can happen anyway?
When you’re trust is in God, and situations in disarray.
In ordinary circumstances one would have quit and call it a day.

Nothing comes easy; life isn’t a bed of roses, the truth everyone should hear,
I believe in miracles, and dreams can come true. Not only a matter of the heart,
But a strong desire to achieve, and be committed to the end.

If it’s to be it’s up to me SMART is a good place to start.
S – pecific
M- easurable
A – ttainable
R – ealistic
T- imely
Smart is the word a road map our guide, a good place to begin,
But we all must do our part.

The point that we are trying to make here is that it is up to you and you only to change your life. Also look at the Milites Dei Academy Facebook Page at:

Tough, Hard and Fun

Tough, Hard and Fun

The three months course at Milites Dei Academy is “Tough, Hard and Fun”. Looking at the faces of the students in the pictures below you will notice how they enjoy their studies. To take a weapon from a criminal is tough and hard but with practice comes perfection. Obviously, to have your whole room pulled is a bit disappointing but it is all about developing an eye for detail, cleanliness, neatness and eventual perfection. To tackle your buddy in the mud always turn into great fun.

Herewith are a few comments from present students…note it is written in verbatim:

“I love Milites Dei Academy cause they treat us like family and fellow students love each other”.

“I’ve learnt a lot and have become very proficient for the security industry”.

“I like how the board himself are organised. I like how the system are created & the information & skills we receive. I like the friendly & good hearts of the Buys Instructors”.

“MDA made me realize my capabilities and taught me the essentials of military and security operations”.

“I like the way all the guys forms a brother ship and most of us gets along, the PT really helped me to build body and I am almost at my goal”.

“I really love everything we learn and experience at Milites Dei”.

“Yesterday’s presentation about politics, every citizen needs to be exposed to such truth. While we ox killing our fellow citizens (boere), while the enemy is getting improved!”

“Excellence in military training and fitness encouragement and motivation to excell in all aspects of security.”

I love MDA – it helped me a lot in every way – emotionally, physically, mentally. I’ve learned to think out of the box. I was a Jojo Tank when I came here but now my physique is on flick (proper)”.

Ambush Exercises as Part of Military Style Teaching and Learning

Ambush Exercises

At Milites Dei Academy students learn (as part of the military style teaching and learning) through ambush exercises how to engage with criminals whether it will be to function in an anti-poaching unit or for farm security or when working in high criminal invested areas. Farmers and farming communities, for instance are at the mercy of criminals. However, security companies can make a difference and so can farmers and the communities in their areas as well.

According to Ryan Evans, ambush is one of the many techniques learned at Milites Dei Academy and it is based on the following basics: “Ambushes are classified by category – hasty or deliberate…A platoon or squad conducts a hasty ambush when it makes visual contact with an enemy force and has time to establish an ambush without being detected. The actions for a hasty ambush must be well rehearsed so that soldiers know what to do on the leader’s signal. They must also know what action to take if detected before they are ready to initiate the ambush”  (Field Manual 7-8 – Infantry Rifle Platoon and Squad).” Read more on https://warontherocks.com/2013/07/new-section-hasty-ambush/

The True Value of Education

The True Value of Education

Milites Dei Academy owners believe that the true value of education should be employment. In addition, it becomes more than just employment.

Students can learn things on their own, but then they would not connect the dots when they do not know what they do not know. On the other hand, at Milites Dei Academy students learn to do and therefore classes are practical so that all subjects are practised into their muscle memory. By using education, we teach students to use their mind and bodies so that each exercise becomes like tying a shoe, which with time becomes an automatically generated muscle memory process. This free up their minds in the end so that they can creatively handle any new question that comes at them.

Martin Meyer, a Milites Dei Academy Student that recently finished his studies wrote the following in an open letter on Facebook Where do I start??? 3 months ago I started to better myself in a way I didn’t think was possible, but I was wrong. I started with a 2 month course at Milites Dei Academy. I started without knowing where the road will lead me, or how it will end, will I make it, will I prove myself worthy to be part of something more powerful, something better something bigger then just myself. I did not believe in myself at that point, because of every time I have failed in the past, but the Academy proved me wrong, after my 1st  month I was called into the office thinking I failed in a way, but it was to congratulate me for my commitment, they showed me I have what it takes to be the best, to be better, to be more powerful not just in myself, but in everything I do and i got a third month gift from the Academy. They showed me I am worthy of becoming a winner that I am a leader and i can overcome my fears and my failures. I am proud to say that I am part of a family that will do anything in there power to help and to see you succeed. To make a success of yourself. I am a proud student – instructor (major) of MILITES DEI ACADEMY. My Heart broke when I had to say farewell to my friends but not only my friends but to my brothers! We will strive for greatness, and we are CREATING BRILLIANCE! Know your training. And remember why you are pushing yourself…be proud of what you have become! I just want to say thank you for showing me the path of success and the power that I have because of what the Academy learned me.
Great and unforgettable memories. We are born to be greater then greatness. Great brother of mine told me, “do what you need to do so that you can do what you want to do.”‘

A few hours after the above comment, Martin wrote ‘Just got good news, I have to be in Cape Town on the 9th for the final interview and on the 10th I start with the SOB training…can’t wait…very excited and very proud…Will keep the Academy up to date with the progress.’

Milites Dei Academy owners are humbled by this letter but at the same time also very grateful and proud because that is the exactly what it wants to achieve for each and every student.
