Reviews for Arlington self defense instructors
Lana B.
This was my first Thumbtack experience so I did not know what to expect. I called Alex and booked an initial meeting for a self defense class. I was so impressed with his knowledge and ability to teach to me (someone with absolutely no experience in self defense) that I hired him immediately. I would recommend him in a minute, I can't explain how much fun each training is while at the same time also getting a tailored workout as well as learning useful and practical skills!!

Zurianne gave me a personal training session and was able to tailor it to key self defense techniques I wished to learn. He was patient, had a positive attitude throughout, and was clearly very skilled in multiple martial arts. His knowledge in these various disciplines allowed him to give me the technique he thought would be best suited for me. It is clear that practice is required to use these skills effectively, but he gave me a good foundation. Thank you Zurianne!
