“I’ve had a lot of weapons training with [my husband - a police officer]. NOTHING was as effective as this course. The gun in my hand, or the knife in my hand, was in my way at this point. I couldn’t believe what my hands could do! And if there’s a woman out there that’s looking for self-defense whether you’re walking out of a bar, out of a laundry mat, into your car in a parking lot, I would recommend this course. In the 2½ days that I’ve been here I’ve learned more than I could have dreamed of in years.
“I didn’t like the idea of putting my hands on someone else. I couldn’t see myself being able to defend myself — just the whole idea was repulsive. You never think this is going to happen to you but you don’t know…everybody OWES it to themselves to give 2½ days.
“The instructors were fabulous. Tim Larkin is extremely attentive. It didn’t matter what question I had, what insecurity I was feeling at the moment, he would take the time to show me, to make sure I got it right. By the time I was done, I surprised myself. I’m impressed. I’m thrilled!
“I just can’t believe what happened. I just can’t. I can’t get over it. I can probably out-shoot any one of those guys out there and I’ve learned [in the past] all sorts of disarming techniques. None of them were as effective as this one. It was to the point; it was direct. I’m telling you — I really am in shock! The fanciest moves — nothing really meant anything like this weekend! I can’t believe it.My husband has been laughing at me for the past two days because I can’t stop. If there’s some body who can pick up the phone and listen to me — I have been rambling nonstop.”
