Read a testimonial from a past participant:

“This was my first self-defense class I have ever done and it was really great to have it be hands-on and informative. Maurice and his team gave a lot of details about the different techniques. They did a good job in role playing the techniques so we could all understand and practice them ourselves. For a 3 hour class held with a minimum of $5 to a FREE class to join, I thought it was exceptional. Usually, these classes can range for at least $75. I will definitely recommend it to my friends and family. I look forward to participating in upcoming classes as practice is how I will gain my confidence and perfect my self-defense skills if I would ever be in this kind of danger. Although Maurice does not charge a large fee for his teachings, a love offering is strongly encouraged from participants if they feel compelled to do so at the end of class. I guarantee you will leave satisfied!” -Monica Nunez

Special Thank You to the Mayor of Montebello, Vanessa Delgado for giving us the opportunity to have this event.
