I have been wanting to take self defense classes for years, a desire that has only intensified since having the girls! Well, I finally got the chance, and I’m hooked! Carolina Self Defense & Krav Maga is amazing y’all!! I learned so many practical, effective ways to protect myself and my family. The other night when I was walking alone to my car, I was reviewing how to get out of a rear choke hold, how to hammer punch, and how to respond to a drawn knife - I felt so empowered! Side note - practicing self defense can feel very vulnerable. At Carolina Self Defense & Krav Maga they are very aware of helping you grow, but also respecting you and any triggers you might have. I have mad respect! I’ll be back!
Took a self-defense class here and absolutely loved it!! I learned a lot and felt so much better after the class was over. It wasn’t a class of just easy drills to run through where you aren’t even trying... NO... we worked!! I actually got to physically practice (upon my request) how scenarios would play out in emergency situations. My family and I plan on joining the Krav Maga part when school starts back up now that our son is old enough to join. I highly recommend that people (especially females) take the self defense class. I am excited to start Krav Maga!!
A great intro. Informative. Gave me confidence that I could escape an attacker. Made me also want to take more classes so I can learn more skills and feel even more proficient. AND it was a great workout.
I liked that it was a lot of hands-on practice. I think I would need to come more to make it feel more automatic and not freeze in a self defense situation, but this seminar gave me a lot of useful moves that I can work on. The staff made a very intimidating topic/situation much more comfortable as they were all very encouraging and all obviously like teaching this. I found this class to be empowering and exactly what I was hoping for.
I went to the self defense seminar and I loved it. Darren did such a great job at explaining all of the moves he was showing us. I loved learning all the different types of self defense moves and new ways of being alert and getting myself out of situations. I can’t wait to back and learn more Krav Maga in the near future.
