I highly recommend NOVA Self Defense. The staff members are extremely professional and classes are taught with safety as the highest priority a supportive and non-intimidating learning environment. The instructors, Evan and Malcolm, explained the self-defense concepts in very easy to understand manner, and they were always willing to answer any questions or concerns from the students. Students learn both the psychological and physical concepts of real world self-defense. This keeps the classes engaging and also stimulating. The self-defense drills are taught so that all body types and fitness levels can benefit and learn. Also, the students are exposed to role playing scenarios to simulate real world situations. I have recommended NOVA Self Defense courses to many of my friends and coworkers, and I will continue to take their courses in the future to continue to build my knowledge and skill base.
We offer Japanese martial arts classes to adults and youths: - Aikido - Kenjutsu (sword) - Jojutsu (staff) Our practice makes better people, not just better fighters. Aikido is a non-competitive and defense-oriented art that can be practiced by anyone, regardless of physical condition. It is worth checking out if you are looking for an alternative to the legions of "belt factory" schools that have become ubiquitous in local shopping centers.
I started working with Danny almost two months ago. My initial goal was for him to help me strengthen my lower body because I felt that I was doing a good job of improving my upper body on my own. But after working with Danny for only a month and noticing dramatic improvement in my lower body, I asked him to work with me an additional day each week to train me on my upper body, as well. Danny is kind, respectful, inspiring, encouraging and very knowledgeable on physical fitness. I highly recommend Danny as your personal trainer, as well. You won't be disappointed.

CRT offers an effective, aggressive, and straightforward approach to self-defense.

Our curriculum is taught to answer the most common of self-defense encounters you may come across; be it untrained street fighting, predatorial attack, multiple attackers, abduction, or sudden violence. We teach our students to use their skills in real world situations, not just the classroom. This is real self-defense, not a movie. CRT teaches defense against single and multiple attackers, trained and untrained opponents, bladed and impact weapons, firearms, and more. All in the context of adrenalized, disadvantaged, real-time combat.
At AC Raineys Kenpo Karate I found a buried treasure I never knew existed. Master rainey's ability to convey his endless knowledge of many martial arts left me with a feeling of thank God my search is over. His sincerity in seeing that his students grasp every minut detail of what he's teaching is complemented by his tireless patience. I am fortunate beyond words that he chose to teach me. His way of teaching instills a hunger for wanting to learn more.
A little over a year ago, I made the decision that my daughter and I would learn how to properly defend ourselves against an attacker should this unfortunate event ever present itself. We decided to take training from Joanne Factor of Strategic Living in Seattle. It has been 11 months, and a handful of classes later, and we feel 110% confident that we could protect ourselves if necessary. Joanne Factor is amazing. She not only describes and teaches us in easy to understand instruction, but she also teaches us the physical and mental skills necessary to properly disable an attacker. I give Joanne Factor the highest rating possible and highly recommend everyone and anyone take her training classes ! Even in the face of serious issues, Joanne also makes classes fun and exciting. Joanne's classes definitely should be taken by any and all women and teens ready to take off to college. Thanks Joanne !!

Learn effective forms of self-defense which will allow you to thwart off an attack from an aggressor no matter how big or strong he/she is. Learn the art which the late Great Bruce Lee began with and based many of his philosophies on. Gain self-confidence that will last with you a lifetime as well as proven skills you can rely on in a time of emergency. Get a good workout while improving body coordination and having fun interaction with a group of like-minded individuals. We offer an affordable rate! Here, at Emerald City Self Defense, we offer all of the above and more for kids ages 6 and up as well as adults. We teach Wing Tsjun kung fu/submission wrestling/jiu jitsu/kickboxing. We have multiple classes on Monday through Friday in the evening and Saturday morning and afternoon. We ask that you call for class times as we are continuously adding classes with increased demand. For the cost-conscience, we do have a weekend warrior rate which is extremely affordable and will allow one to begin their training! Kids classes run for approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour. The age group for the kids is 4 to 6 and 8 to 12. They will learn discipline, body coordination, how to resolve a conflict without physical confrontation, what to do when an adult is threatening, and get a good workout. The goal is to make it as fun as possible while learning important life skills. The adult classes are very technical and can be physically demanding, depending on the class taken and the goal of the student. The students will learn proper reflexes for countering various attacks from bigger and stronger aggressors, how to strike in the most effective manner for finishing an altercation and techniques for controlling an attacker without having to do physical harm. The tuition for both kids and adults is very reasonable. Come down and try it out for a free week trial! Private and group lessons are also available. Call or e-mail today! Sihing Adrian
