I loved this class!!!!! Life saving Info!!!

Posted by Justine Vierdag IFBB Pro on

 I attended a class for the first time at Modern Arnis Academy in Homer Glen a couple weekends ago; it was a phenomenal class on handgun retention.So not only did I learn about retaining your personal self defense piece ; but I also learned some very interesting things about human anatomy, nerves and pressure points specific to successful self defense. I know quite a bit about the human anatomy and physiology as I am an IFBB Pro Women's Physique Competitor and have many years of experience of studying the body and training myself and others. But Master Ken Smith really opened up a whole new world of info for me. Info that could save my life to be quite honest!!!

I learned some really effective self defense techniques that looked pretty complicated at first but Master Ken breaks each move down to basic steps and explains the science behind it all.

I was so impressed with my first class there; I will be taking my daughters to learn these defense tactics!! I would highly, highly recommend taking at least one class here- in ONE session, you can seriously take away some life-saving info!! Thank you Master Ken Smith!!!!
