Private Self Defense Lessons
Ed is a great choice for anyone interested in learning self defense. Ed quickly responded to all of my emails. He tailors the lessons to what you want to learn. Ed is very friendly, punctual and motivated. He isn’t staring at his watch looking to be done with you. My lessons all have run long because Ed is such a motivated teacher. You can really tell that he loves what he’s doing. If you’re thinking of learning self defense or expanding on your self defense knowledge, drop Ed a line, he is a capable motivated teacher. He will respond quickly and his prices are extremely reasonable. Take one class and you will see what I mean.Jan 25, 2018Verified

I have known Ed Costigan for 40 years. We have worked together on a number of self defense projects while working with Target Consultants. He is one of the most professional people I have worked with over the years. Plus, he knows his stuff. We team taught together at a number of law enforcement conferences. I can highly recommend him without reservation. Professor Arthur Cohen B.A., M.A. Center for School and Personal Safety ResearchJun 12, 2015
I have known Mr Costigan both professionally and personally for over 30 years. I was Mr. Costigan's supervisor for the Jones Beach Lifeguard Corps, his work ethics has always been rated as superior alone with his knowledge and attitude towards the public. Mr. Costigan possesses outstanding commitment to public safety and public awareness through his skills as a martial artist and safety programs he has helped develop and implement. I feel Edmund Costigan would excel in most anything he attempted. I personally would recommend Mr. Costigan highly.Jun 14, 2015
I have known Ed Costigan since 1974 when we both started as lifeguards at Jones Beach, which we continue to do through this summer season. Ed is one of the finest people I know having been an honored NYC firefighter and a senior officer with the Jones Beach Lifeguard Corps. He is a fine leader, great athlete, and an awesome friend.Jun 15, 2015
