Review: “I felt so empowered the times that Charlie had us doing a few strikes and practices! I always thought I wouldn’t have the strength to fight an attacker, but walked away from this class KNOWING that I could. More practice time would have continued to increase confidence I think. I was so pleased with the class. Charlie is an exceptional teacher and has all the necessary components to engage his listeners. His credentials command respect, his encouragement made me feel like I could do it even through my fear, and his humor made it seem like 2 hours just flew by! I would recommend this class to every woman.”
