Troy Logan has absolutely been a God send. I am so lucky to have happened up on him through thumbtack. He is a first class professional in every way. What a blessing to learn self defense,and get in shape at the same time.I can't think of a better form of workout. Troy's practical approach to self defense makes it easy and a lot of fun. It is the best money I have ever spent!

Sensei Walker truly provides quality and engaging training for his students. I especially appreciate the fact that he gives the students real scenarios and situations where they can apply the techniques he teaches to help in self defense. Great instructor!!

Whether your goal is to learn realistic and effective self-defense techniques or to study in depth the system of Wing Tsun, there's something for everyone at Georgia Wing Chun Kung Fu. Sifu Matt Wright knows his art very well and yet is very humble and personable. He is a life-long student of martial arts himself. He is able to mold the curriculum of his training based on students' needs, skill-set and athletic abilities. I can confidently say that this has been the best martial arts school I have ever studied at, and don't think will ever stop. The learning environment is very friendly, and you leave every class feeling like you have added another idea, tool or technique in your arsenal that you may use in your daily life or in any kind of self-defense situation. If you are looking for quality martial arts classes for you or your loved ones, this is it!

I took my 14 yr old daughter to her very first self-defense class and in a word "Outstanding!" The instruction she received was practical, effective and repeatable, which is exactly what you need. I would highly recommend this to any female 12+. You will come away knowing what you need to know to fend off any intruder who may be bigger and stronger. Be safe!!

We teach people how to protect themselves in real-life situations. Everything has been tested to work in real situations. Everything is easy to learn and effective. We adapt our program to you rather than you adapting to it. Our class sizes are very small, to allow hands-on with an instructor. We adapt our program to work for you rather than have you adapt to our program. We offer small group classes, private classes, seminars, and intensive personal training programs (IPTPs). You can come to us, or for certain programs, we will come to you. Seminars can be done nationally. I am the self-protection instructor for Rahab's Rope, which is a non-profit organization that sends teams (usually consisting entirely of women) to India to fight against human trafficking. A great example of what we do is the Bourne Triology. What Jason Bourne did in those movies is Kali, and that is one of the major arts that we draw from. Hunted with Tommy Lee Jones is also a good example.

I started working with Master Steve 18 months ago, as an alternative to weightlifting--which I had done for years and wanted something new. I knew I would get in shape, but I was shocked by the dramatic changes in my body, especially in terms of muscle tone, loss of body fat and overall endurance. As an instructor, Master Steve is incredibly patient, encouraging and clearly has the experience in teaching to help each student improve in their skills. Ever though I started out as an alternative to the gym, I've really developed a passion for MMA--a passion clearly shared by Master Steve and I am actively working towards a black belt. What impresses me the most about TrasforMMAtion's program is that time is not wasted. Other martial arts schools I've looked at spend an inordinate amount of time on "conditioning" and very little on actual instruction and practicing of MMA techniques. After warming up, almost all the time is spent with Master Steve on acquiring and improving techniques, without any wasted time. I would recommend TransforMMAtion and Master Steve to anyone who wants to get in shape, feel more confident in self defense situations, or who would like to go beyond the basics to mastering the discipline.

The Lyn Haley Defense & Combat System is a system designed to teach how to manage the flight or fright response factor of fear, and teach those willing to learn a dynamic new way of self defense and/or combat. Lyn Haley Defense & Combat system covers a vast variety of defense and combat techniques, such as defense clusters, defensive striking, offensive striking, defensive grappling, offensive grappling, weapons offense, and weapons defense. Requirements for this class are as follow: * Ages 18-40 * Any size, race and height * Woman or man * You do not have to have any experience in traditional or mixed martial arts. The charge is usually a 4-month flat rate or an installment plan ranging from $60.00-$100.00. But I am looking for 5 dedicated people to learn the system deeply in all its aspects, and to help put together demonstrations. Those 5 who are willing to do this will be free of charge.

I am a professional speaker and instructor, and I speak to individuals, as well as businesses about how they can be safe in multiple situations using different techniques, styles, and options which will help to keep them from being victimized. As a former military serviceman and law enforcement officer with many years of experience, certifications, and education, Will Rios can present in a manner many cannot. The information within the speaking topics, along with the techniques shown within the courses is detrimental to the safety and security for you, your family, and even to your business. To simplify arrangements for courses and speaking engagements, Will Rios Enterprises is designed to come to you, using appropriate facilities. To make things even better, our courses can be curtailed to be specific for your needs. Also, inquire about our business and residential consultations.
