Are you a student who lives alone, a mom who battle awkward encounters or a working professional who stays out late at night? Are you frustrated with martial arts classes that don't teach real-world techniques? Do you worry that self-defense is too hard to learn? If you answered YES to any of these questions, you've come to the right place to find your solution!

I am so glad I joined. It has helped me identify techniques for real world situations - from shoves/pushes and grabs to more serious assaults. Classes are fun too!
