I am 5’7” tall- if I stand really straight- and I weigh 132 pounds. As a former police officer, there were many, many times that I ended up getting into altercations.

I bring real world experience, along with my martial arts expertise, to you in a fully featured package. The Home Invasion and Tactical Urban Survival (HIATUS) course provides you with a holistic approach to safety both in and outside of the home. It is composed of over 7 hours of the most common attack/response scenarios and thorough training in regards to real world dangers.
