Amateurs practice until they get it right, professionals practice until they can no longer get it wrong, and masters never stop practicing. This is some of the most realistic training you can get, and after you complete this class, your mental conditioning for defending yourself and your loved ones will be one step ahead when the time comes. If you have not been in a physical fight before this class, you will by the end of this class.
