My daughter and I began training with Mike after a horrible domestic violence situation. The lessons are very easy to follow as Mike is a highly skilled trainer who is very patient with people of all skill levels as he makes the lessons fun instead of all just work, work, work. I've previously had formal training but not even close to the high levels Mike teaches. This is real-world-street- smart training that can be the difference between death or coming out of a situation with just a few bruises. My 14 year old daughter had no training and was very withdrawn after what happened. Now she has huge self-confidence knowing she can protect herself in a confrontation! This means the world to us and we look forward to Mike's weekly lessons with great enthusiasm! These lessons CAN HELP SAVE YOUR LIFE!
