My daughter was graduating college and moving out on her own - and I had nightmares over her safety. I decided it was the perfect time for us to bond over firearms. Unfortunately, neither one of us knew anything about guns. I have to say that we could not have found a better teacher than John Cherry. He made the whole process approachable, and never once made us feel like idiots because we asked too many questions. The man has the patience of Job! Dare I say he even made the lessons fun??! We have now been thru several of John's different classes, and feel quite secure and proficient. We are looking forward to beginning the Women's self defense class next. I can't imagine learning from anyone else.
I have taken several self defense training sessions with Rae and I love it!!! Rae is an amazing teacher! Not only does he know his material, but he also makes it easy to learn (as a teacher myself, this is vital to the learner). Rae has made a HUGE impact in my awareness of the environment and my confidence in knowing how to defend myself. Rae truly has been able to help support me with the physical aspect of self defense, as well as the intellectual aspect. I would recommend Rae's classes/training sessions to anyone! Can't wait for my next session!
I've bought several Dit Jow from Dale. I am head coach of a MMA gym and I'm constantly encouraging my guys to take care of their injuries and bruises. His medicine is a key part of that maintenance and our athletes agree.
Harry Grimm is one of the most qualified self defense instructors I know. He takes a unique holistic approach to self defense in teaching awareness and verbal de-escalation skills to keep altercations from ever becoming physical in the first place. And the actual defense tactics he instructs work for smaller people against potentially larger and stronger attackers. Plus Harry is a terrific person who truly cares about his students well being.
Dean is very expierenced in what he does. Always has a great attitude and ready to pump you up when you feel like stopping. He also got me a workout journal which was pretty awesome of him and he really listens to your goals and is always communicating with you to keep you on track he's just absolutely awesome
I wanted some private self defense classes this summer for my daughters and their friend to help prepare them for college and high school, respectively. Don came highly recommended when I checked his references. He came up to Fort Myers from Estero twice and 3 times a week over a period of 4 weeks to teach them. He was reliable, on-time and completely professional, tempered with a nurturing attitude. I was amazed at how much they learned and how much they enjoyed it. Don is an excellent teacher and helped my shy daughters find new confidence in themselves. I highly recommend his services.
I can teach firearms training and maintenance. I will do pre-req for Florida concealed weapon permit. I can also train firearm safety and basics. I also teach self-defense and home defense.
It's a 10-week self-defense program. It's like a police academy for civilians. You will train in basic, intermediate and advanced self-defense one Saturday a week for two hours. You will not get left behind, and the program comes with a fully illustrated self-defense manual, graduation t-shirt, and official certificate. We specialize in kids' self-defense and personal safety. They will learn effective striking, escapes, anti-abduction techniques, how to deal with a bully, and how to spot a bad guy. They will participate in a real-life 911 scenario and an abduction escape drill. At the end of the camp, they will even take a self-defense written test. We serve SW Florida.
