I conducted a self-defense training class for girls in grades 3-7 yesterday. This was a fantastic opportunity for me as a teacher and a father. I think that I had more fun than the girls. I had to take a look into their little fears as I prepared for the class. I train many adults but have done few seminars for kids. My wife mentioned it to a friend of hers and before I knew it there at least twenty girls signed up.

I gave them concepts, tools and let them prove their new abilities on me. Continue reading

I have been approached by many stalking victims for help, both in the way of self-defense skill development, recognition/ awareness, vulnerability assessments, investigative services, counter/ anti- stalking activities or plain old protection from the people who would stalk my clients.

There are several fairly common ways that these crimes are being perpetrated. One of the ways that is probably the easiest for the public to remedy is leaving your garage door open. This is just asking for trouble. Continue reading
