About this pro

The Knowledge how to defend yourself is one of the most essential life skills you just need to have.

Mankind is violent. It always has been, and it probably always will be. As a species, we like it or not, one of the few constants in our history and future is the presence of violence.

Self defense is not a martial art or sport. It's not learning how to fight. (Self defense is legal - fighting usually illegal)

It's a survival system. 

It is actually mainly about Attitude and Awareness. It isn’t the fancy technique or contents of your bag that will determine whether or not you survive when an emergency strikes. It’s YOU  who marks the difference between life and death, both for yourself and anyone who is relying on you to deal with the situation. It’s You, and the PREPARATION you have done beforehand that will ensure your chances of survival are HIGH enough. And There's only one way to become good at something :PRACTICE 

Awareness creates choice, and once you have a choice you'll always choose what serves you.

Self-defense is only about the protection of your health and physical body, not your emotional well being. 

 Hand-to-hand combat is only one, even though important part of this survival system. 

Self defense is actually very complex and multi layer topic. 

It's a combination of mental preparedness, awareness, physical shape and health plus technical skills and tools to stay safe in different harmful situations. 

You have one life and one body - protect it and take good care of it.

Helping people to live long and strong. Help them become more confident and healthier . And confidence is one of the most essential characteristics in order to be successful in any field of our life or business.
