Student Stories

Nate and Manda are great! I’m so glad we asked them to teach our wellness group more about self-defense. It was so informative and FUN! We’ll definitely do it again. I would definitely recommend them for classes or special events.

Student Stories

The VSA Self-Defense class was useful and engaging. Right off the bat, we were practicing conflict resolution followed by physical counter maneuvers, if necessary. They made it a point to describe what body language precludes physical aggression and what doesn't. Both of our daughters will be taking these classes.
