Sensei Holley is the perfect individual to learn a martial art from. The martial arts are about building your character as a human being even more so than the skills you will develop to be a fighter. Sensei truly teaches shotokan karate as Master Funakoshi had intended as a self defense. Sensei is humble and has the true spirit of budo. He teaches us first to avoid a confrontation and if a confrontation can't be avoided how to end it using only as much force as necessary to escape the situation. Taking a class with sensei will not only help you develop the skills needed to defend yourself and others but how to be a respected member of the community that others can look up to because of the quality of your character. I haven't met an individual at our dojo that doesn't hold Sensei in the highest regard. I respect this man as much as humanly possible and am proud to say that my karate lineage comes from this great man. My wife and I have been training under Sensei for 2 years on and off and just recently obtained our green belts. Sensei is fair but will make you earn your belts so expect to advance slower than some other dojo's. This is a good thing though because you will have not only earned your belt but have the experience necessary to preform what you have learned well. So please come join us. You will get a great work out, You will learn a lot about yourself physically and mentally and you will accomplish things you didn't know you could.

Three of my sons and I attended a Triune Total Body Defense class. It was well-organized, excellently presented, and very fairly priced for the instruction we received. They covered and equipped us with not only the physical skills needed for good self-defense, but also with the mental frame of mind that is necessary. We felt, after completing the class, that we better prepared than ever before for a situation in which we would need to practice self-defense. Additionally, we were taught skills and methods for diffusing situations that are volatile, something I feel is desperately needed in our world today. I would highly recommend Triune Total Body Defense to everyone who is interested in being equipped to protect themselves (or others) should they need to. (Which should be everyone!)

Training with Coach Tate has been life changing! In the 2 years I have trained with him, I've lost 20 lbs (wasn't even trying to loose weight), have gotten stronger and and am in much better shape. His method pushes you to get better, but you enjoy it! I would really recommend him to help everyone. My daughter is going off to college next year and I'm going to have her take self defense classes before she goes.

Mr. Zorn is not only very knowledgeable about his subject matter, but also a great teacher. Very professional as well. I would reccomend his instruction to anyone desiring more insight into defensive stratagems, tactics, and combatives.

Some friends and I decided to host a self defense class for a girls night activity and we are so glad we hired Allison Moore at Protect Priorities. She and her husband were incredibly professional and knowledgeable, and went above and beyond by meeting us at our place at our time, pretty much on the fly. We are looking forward to hiring her again in the future for a mother/daughter class. She is both super sweet and super tough and we definitely learned a lot!

We at ESD stand out from our peers because we have actual combat experience. Instructor Brown has had numerous combat missions in Iraq and is a strong competitor in the martial art tournament circuit today. We don't just preach what we teach we use it in real life and in competition.
