TESTIMONIALS

 

The best way to spread the word about our exciting and valuable program is by the testimonials of those who have attended an ABC Women's Self-Defense program. See below for comments from actual attendees. 

"USEFUL AT ANY AGE..."

"I just wanted to take a moment to acknowledge and thank everyone who taught and arranged this course. I went into it with reserved expectations.  To say that I was pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. The content, with its common sense approach, is useful at any age and in any situation.

 

The staff was numerous and extremely helpful. The professionalism was apparent. The way everything was set up was extremely condusive to a good learning experience.

 

I am usually hesitant to try and fail publicly, but the spirit of helpfulness encouraged me to try things that I would never have ordinarily attempted with others watching me. I appreciate the entire experience and encourage others to do this also! Thank you!" - Jeanette S.

"I NOW FEEL EQUIPPED TO DEFEND MYSELF!"

"This is fantastic! This class was amazing! I found it so valuable, and fun too! Thank you to you and your patient team!" - Thanks, Deb M. 

 

"I attended the ABC Self-Defense class after work last night. It was excellent, fun, and worthy of every person to seriously give thought to attending this program! I found it to be informative, instructional, valuable, and a lot of FUN! I now feel equipped with intelligent, basic, do-able skils to defend myself. I did not have these skills before I attended this class. Now I do!

 

Thanks to John, his program, and his colleagues!" - Janice S. 

"I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOUR CLASS!"

"I took your class on Friday and can't believe how incredible it was! I really went into the class thinking it was going to be informational but not practical; boy, was I wrong! I was so impressed with your staff and how much information was disseminated. It is useful, practical, and easy to do!

 

The most amazing thing was flipping Dan off me while I was on the floor! I didnt think I could do it, but I DID! Thanks again to you and your staff. who did take a few hits from the ladies! - Thanks a lot!- Lisa B.

 

I really enjoyed your class and learned a great deal! I would (and will) recommend it to my family friends, and coworkers. Keep up the good work!" - Thank you, Kelly R. 

"WHAT A GREAT WORKOUT!"

"WE ALL THINK IT WON'T HAPPEN TO US..."

“Yesterday after work I took the self-defense class sponsored by John Borter, a self-defense expert. He brought a team to our workplace and 12 of us took the class. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I am very glad that I went. The class helped me to rethink how aware I am (or not) and how tolerant I should be of strangers in my space (way less than I am).  It provided me with some moves to stay safe, fight back and get away that I think anyone — any woman — could learn and execute.  We all think it won’t happen to us, but the statistic that John provided was that 1 out of 3 women will be stalked/accosted/attacked.  That is pretty sobering.  Don’t think that you know enough or that you couldn’t do anything to defend yourself any way.  Learn how to fight back and get away – it doesn’t matter whether you are small or big, strong or not, in shape or a couch potato – I would encourage each and every one of you to be sure to sign up for this course.”- Dawn J

"THANK YOU SO MUCH!"

“Thank you so much for Saturday! It was an amazing class. The content and hands on practice was so valuable. You broke it down so simply, provided us with statistics, kept it real and honest, and fun! Your staff was amazing as well! I especially liked that Trish was able to keep it relatable and honest. Women relate more to women obviously so I was glad that she was a part of it! I practiced some of the stuff on my husband and he was impressed and that says a lot coming from a Type A guy who thinks he knows everything! I definitely want to set up another Level 1 for the Fall and I will get together a group for Level 2 maybe in June?”- Jenny W

 

“I attended with my 11 year old daughter. It was an excellent class. I wish the school district would provide this class to its students in health class. Every one can benefit from it.”- Gloria S

 

“Such an amazing class and so much fun!”- Jessica D

"WE FEEL EMPOWERED!"

“I just wanted to let you know everyone here LOVED the class.  Many are thinking about getting friends together and taking the class.  Word of mouth is the best advertisement.”- Lisa B

 

“Again, the ladies LOVED the class and all the instructors.  We have a happy bunch here who feel empowered and in control thanks to you all.” – Lisa B
