Seminar #3 in two weeks – Today I had a great time teaching the St. Ambrose University soccer team!
Little Sasha was my helper – I told Sasha it’s important to help people learn self defense, Younger or older – boys – girls – Moms and Dads… everyone.

Spread the word – I enjoy teaching all my classes and I enjoy teaching seminars – so if anyone is reading this and knows anyone that would benefit from a seminar covering real self defense – feel free to send them my direction. –
