• @damian Enjoying 60 Minute Self Defense! It is simple and to the point. I look forward to continued instruction from your self defense training programs.

    • Just wanted to say ‘that’s awesome’, @steve-9, and ‘welcome aboard!’

    • Thanks Steve! And that’s right, it’s supposed to be simple. The first time I started learning this stuff there was a moment where I’m like…it can’t be that easy, but it is that easy.

    My Sensei is dead. On October 18th my judo sensei, Yoshisada Yonezuka passed away. When I tell you this man was just…cool.
