I went in not knowing what to expect & skeptical that I was capable of defending myself. I left feeling much more confident.
I really thought the hands on getting to try out what we learned in class was very beneficial.
The presentation was excellent and the strategies were easy to remember and basic, yet seemed practical enough to work in an emergency.
I liked the fact that he [the instructor] was teaching us skills that he’s used in real life, and that he was able to use his sense of humor while doing it.
Very good tips and instructions in a short amount of time!
The message was clear, instruction demo’s were excellent.
I would definitely recommend this class. I do feel more confident and prepared when it comes to self defense. Specifically, I found the body language an attacker displays in a situation to be very useful. The techniques used to prevent you from becoming a victim were also very beneficial. I would not change anything about this course.
I thought there was a lot of good tips about being aware of surroundings, and some self defense moves. I’d like to take further training when possible!
What did you find most valuable?Seriously, there are too many things to list. I found the entire class informative.”

Overall I would rate this course: Excellent
Dave has many years of experience in the field of self defense and it shows.
Loved the self defense class!
Dave is clearly an experienced, knowledgeable instructor who made a point of watching to see where we needed additional guidance.
This was a great class and I’m telling friends and family about it.
It was valuable to recognize that evil exists [and] to talk about situational awareness and to have some hands-on training tips.
Thanks for the info on a difficult topic to think about. I was glad to practice a quick technique to help me in a scary situation.
I really enjoyed your presentation! It was very interesting and informative. Thank you so much!
We learned a lot of great stuff tonight!!! Your class was fantastic—really useful info, well taught and fun! I will be recommending you to others.
I learned a wealth of knowledge...It was a great experience for my girls and I. Everyone should take a self defense class!
It was scary to attend, but the instructor does well at making a student feel comfortable enough to try the techniques.
Top notch class tonight.
I enjoyed the class, and hope I never have to use the techniques we learned, but at least I have a better idea on what I need to do if the situation arises.
Thanks so much for the fantastic info!
It built my awareness and self confidence.
Awesome and fun, thanks.
