Johnny is awesome! I hired him to train my wife in self defense. I've been doing martial arts for years and have never managed to convince my wife to do it with me. It always intimidated her. But within a few lessons with Johnny she is now hooked. Johnny is very experienced working with women and with people without any background in martial arts. Now, a month into her working with Johnny, she loves every minute of it. I can see her improvement, both physically and psychologically and I have never seen her so motivated to workout. I highly recommend Johnny.

I’ve never done any type of sport or activity that involved coordination. So when I first started with Johnny, we were really starting from scratch. Six sessions later, I’ve learned how to claim my space, defend myself against various knife attacks and use my upper and lower body as weapons. He gives you feedback when you’re doing well, need to improve on a technique, or (if you’re like me) thinking too much. I have a new found sense of self confidence and am addicted to my training. Invest in yourself and train with Johnny. You won’t regret it.

Johnny was great! Even though it was just my first experience with a personal self defense trainer, he made me feel at ease. I left feeling feeling really good and ready to keep on going.

Johnny taught a 2.5 hour self-defense class for moms and our 14-year-old daughters. He is professional and informative He took the time to explain scenarios without scaring us while giving us all more confidence. He was responsive regarding scheduling and coordinating I would highly recommend Johnny for all your self-defense needs he is an effective and clear communicator! We learned a lot and were engaged the entire time! Thank you Johnny!
