I am 68 years old & recently widowed. Since I am out alone more now, I wanted to feel like I had “A Fighting Chance” if I ever got into a bad situation. The classes provided usable tips for prevention and techniques for defense. Practicing with the "bad guy" made it all come together and gave me confidence. Marita is very knowledgeable, patient and an excellent communicator. These classes are invaluable for females of all ages.

I attended phase 1 with my 14 year old daughter. I felt the class was empowering and fantastic for both me and my daughter. Marita's knowledge, background and compassion make it easier to work through your fears and build your confidence. Even the "bad guy" helped build confidence by letting you know that your kicks/hits were felt (even with padding). I learned so much and look forward to learning more in phase 2!!
Your class was well worth the money and exactly what my daughter and I were looking for in a self-defense class. It more than met my expectations, it exceeded them and I'm grateful that both my daughter and I have new skills we can use if it should ever be necessary!
I took phase I yesterday. For the first time in over 10 years, I feel strong. This class not only taught me how to defend myself, but it turned bad memories into those of strength, courage, and confidence. Please recommend this class to your friends! It's beyond worth the time and investment! Marita is amazing and so helpful! I'm so blessed to have taken this!
I am amazed at the underlying fear that I was able to let go of, just the minute that I had freed myself from the "Bad Guy". I felt so "Able". My daughter was also taking the class with me, and when we chatted after class, she said she felt so strong and was very glad she had taken it. We are both excited to take Phase 2, and will carry this knowledge with us forever. I will feel much more confident, sending my daughter off to college and into life, knowing that she has the knowledge and skills to defend herself, should the occasion ever arise!! Marita is very informational and very professional and you can tell she loves her job. Mark, aka "the bad guy" was amazing and we cannot thank the 2 of them enough, for the experience and the knowledge. This is a class that is truly priceless, and she only charges $45...best investment you will make for your safety!! I will highly recommend this class to all of my family and friends!!
I took Phase 1 with my daughter and can't wait to take phase two. We loved the class. I would recommend this class to all women. We left feeling like we actually learned moves that could help save us. It really helped us both to be able to actually hit the 'bad guy'. The class covered more than just the self defense moves. They talked about ways to try to prevent an attack and what to do after an attack. They really care about the students and wanting to help the students. Marita and Alan were both wonderful.
The class helped me so much to feel safer. Marita is a wonderful teacher and has so much experience and knowledge in preventing and surviving an attack. Her instruction is tough enough to help people push through their fears, but also compassionate enough to make you feel comfortable in for some a very uncomfortable situation. The skills I gained just from Phase I were amazing and the confidence I took away from it will be a shining light in my future. Thanks so much Marita!!!!!
I try to give my daughter the tools to handle anything life might throw at her. We have taken Marita's class twice now and I feel so much more at ease about my ability and my daughter's ability to defend ourselves. Marita is so much more than an instructor. She is a mentor and role model. We learned so much. Take your family to her class. Give them a fighting chance-you will not be disappointed!
I cannot express how greatful I am to have had the experience in the class. As a survivor myself, this class gave me the confidence in my own abilities and the confidence that I can fight my way out if I need to. Although it's has been an incredibly emotional process I am so glad I did it. This is not only a great prevention class but it is a life changing process for me. Marita and the "bad guys" compassion are astounding. It has been a integral part of my healing process. I recommend Marita's class to all women. Thank you for giving me back the power!
