Jeff and I train on a weekly basis and i would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to learn multiple areas of self defense. Having a Jiu-Jitsu background, i came to Jeff wanting to improve on my stand up game and have been extremely impressed by his knowledge base and teaching skills.

You can learn to fight anywhere, Jeff breaks it down and stream lines very effective techniques. No flowery BS. Where else can you train striking,grappling, edged weapon, fighting with a pistol and on top of it all get real world advice on the aftermath and legal side. All in one training ! !

I love their way of looking at self-protection. Dispelling myths with easy, common sense logic. I run a nonprofit that helps survivors of domestic violence stay safe and I often share their tips and advice with my clients.
