I’ve been taking self defense lessons with Anthony for about 3 months now and it has been great. He breaks down movements and explains things in a way that’s easy for a beginner to understand, and is great at tailoring workouts to my needs. I work in an emergency room where patients often become violent, and Anthony takes situations I’ve seen or my co-workers have seen and shows me how to defend myself. You can tell from your first session with Anthony that he not only is an expert in what he does, but that he loves what he does. He makes working out fun. I leave our sessions completely exhausted, as he works you hard for the full time. He’s also great at working around my crazy schedule. I enjoy our sessions so much I’ve been passing out his business cards to all my work friends!
My two teenage daughters and I trained with David, our instructor, with Falcon Security. It was the best decision we have ever made! Not only did we learn skills to protect ourselves, but we now feel empowered! I know my daughters will be more careful and ready at a momemt's notice to defend and protect themselves, heaven forbid should they need to! As for myself, I have a true confidence that should I find myself in an unsafe situation, I can handle it without a shadow of a doubt. David was spot on with his lessons. He conveyed what can happen to any of us but did so in a professional way. I know he really cared about our well-being and he took our lessons to heart every session. He pointed out scenarios that the girls have never yet contemplated and then gave them the skills to handle what ever can happen. At 17 and 18 it was time for them to learn self defense. David was awesome and I couldn't be happier with the results!
Gannon loves what’s he does and takes his profession very seriously. He is easy to get along with and a patient person to work with! Highly recommend to get self defense privates from him.
Very calming and I feel like attending and participating helped me to relax get in tune with my higher self and make better decisions
My son initially started working with Coach Kirby as a one-on-one student when the bullying defense class for kids he tried consisted of kids that were much younger than him. Since working with Coach Kirby, my son has gained more confidence in himself and is getting stronger. Coach Kirby is firm yet understanding with him and my son has great admiration and respect for him.
This is not a typical self-defense class. This is a re-training of my mind to better understand the physical forces at work, so I can then retrain my body to respond in a most efficient way. I am already feeling more empowered and in charge of my body. This is flowing over to my mind as I begin to take more control over decisions I make and relationships I am in. This is a self-defense class for my entire being- not just my body.
Julien is my personal training. I am extremely happy to have him as a trainer. I have actually lost wait and builded muscle within 3 months and learned some self defense moves. He tailors the workout routing base on you strength and ability than progress as your health improves. I'm grateful to have him as a trainer and I'm sure you will be also.

Al is an incredible instructor, patient, tolerant, humble, zen and wise. He makes me want to take martial art as an everyday practise. I recommend him to young and old.
Scott is very passionate about teaching women to defend themselves. But he also teaches respect and enhances confidence and self esteem.
When I met breelaun, I had just stepped foot into a gym for the very first time in 19 years!! I didn't have the motivation, was very self-conscious, and was very intimidated by the machines. breelaun didn't make me feel like a big out of shape loser. He is very patient, and knowledgeable on fitness & nutrition. He's super laid back and not your typical "military" style trainer. Don't get me wrong, there were times I whined & said I was tired, & he'd let me rest for a little (like 1 minute) lol & get back to working out .Most important, I was very comfortable with him. I am very happy I made the choice of getting training w/breelaun & have made major changes in my lifestyle.breelaun is the best. Very serious about getting you to achieve your personal best while maintaining a fun environment. It's important to enjoy your workouts and breelaun makes sure that you have a good time. !!!! Thanks BREE BREE ;)
