Patti is amazing! I have taken several of her self defense classes (3 of her 4 hour seminars & her 6 week, 1 hour classes). She is knowledgeable in her field. I have learned so much from her & will continue to do so. She inspires, motivates, and empowers every woman & teen in her classes. She has helped me find value in myself & brought out the confidence in me that was non existent until I completed her 4 hour seminar. I would & do highly recommend taking a class with Patti.
After just one session, Anthony made me feel so much more confident in my self-defense skills. The session was informative, but also quite fun, and I am looking forward to going back!
SAFE International Milwaukee~Bill is the best instructor because he is passionate about practical self defense, he is quite knowledgeable and has an awesome sense of humor! He is also super professional in his workshops and makes everyone feel comfortable and willing to participate. I greatly recommend Bill!
The approach I take in teaching self-defense is unique because I do not teach one style or one way, but rather, I take the best from various martial arts and fit them to the individual's strengths and weaknesses. I break it down in such a way that kids can even understand it, and I put them through real-life simulated scenarios to raise confidence in skill against the dangers of reality. The classes are separated by levels which are Basic, Intermediate, Advanced, Expert, and Master. Each level builds on the premise of the previous level, and there are graduation benefits to those that pass the test to move up in training. In the end, what takes years for martial arts to teach you in the line of defending yourself, you can learn here in months. A part of this training is fitness so that you are physically capable of performing the techniques required with the most optimal result. The last thing a person wants is to be out of breath while they are fighting for their life. Skill can take you far, but physicality combined with skill can guarantee reassurance of your ability to defend yourself in any scenario.
Training Krav Maga with Chris has been good for my whole family. While getting exercise, we are learning to defend and push ourselves. Great family bonding too! We always feel better when we leave than we did when we arrived.
We focus very heavily on drills and technique perfection. This allows one to train in a controlled situation that accurately mimics real fight scenarios that occur both on the street and in the ring, without getting injured. Whether you just want to get in shape, learn self-defense, or get into the ring, come train with us!
Filipino Martial Arts refers to ancient and newer fighting methods devised in the Philippines, the most popular of which are known as Arnis/Eskrima/Kali. The intrinsic need for self-preservation was the genesis of these systems. Throughout the ages, invaders and evolving local conflict imposed new dynamics for combat in the islands now making up the Philippines. The Filipino people developed battle skills as a direct result of an appreciation of their ever-changing circumstances. They learned often out of necessity how to prioritize, allocate and use common resources in combative situations. Filipinos have been heavily influenced by a phenomenon of cultural and linguistic mixture. Some of the specific mechanisms responsible for cultural and martial change extended from phenomena such as war, political and social systems, technology, trade and of course, simple practicality. Filipino martial arts have seen an increase in prominence due to several Hollywood movies and the teachings of modern masters such as Dan Inosanto, Cacoy Canete worlds famous Masters in Arnis fighting in Cebu City.

I am self- motivated worker and I do most of my compiling from home. As a younger adult, I studied and completed basic courses in mathematics and science with enthusiasm, however, I also became interested in advanced Psychology and public speaking. My favorite activity is art, though I continue to practice in reading and literature. I look forward to new and exciting opportunities and am currently persuing a career as a teacher and private tutor. I hope we can work together in helping the future to progress and our world be a positive place for children to prosper and learn!
Elliott performed a self defense class at our studio, Joiwithfitness, in August. He did an excellent job of educating the students and showing them ways to protect themselves. I would not hesitate to refer my students to him for further training.
