The instructors are AMAZING! The owner and his wife really care about your safely and getting you involved in the class! They are genuine people who loves to give back to the community as well! It was a joy working with them! I leaned a lot and I walked out of their class feeling like a Boss! They wanted to know what I wanted to gain from the class and they worked around my everyday lifestyle! They taught a self-defense class on my campus and with just the two of them were able to get over 40 students really involved! I had a blast and cannot wait to take a full on class!

Liz and Cat are excellent instructors. They came to our office for an on-site self-defense workshop and provided our group with not only instruction on physical evasion, but also mindset tools for avoiding and getting out of threatening situations. Totally recommend them!

We attended a private class this evening and I cannot say enough positive, yet assertive, things about the owners . The class was very enlightening and all the attendees learned so much about self awareness and self respect. Great people and great self defense course .
