Martial-arts knowledge can be useful in situations where self-defense is the only option; however, training is a lifestyle choice that requires mental as well as physical commitment. Master Jeong Ho Yi currently holds a fifth-degree black belt in the ancient practice of taekwondo: a Korean martial art that emphasizes dynamic footwork, as well as mindful awareness of the body's movements and capabilities. Joined by a team of instructors, Master Yi shares his knowledge of taekwondo with students of all ages and skill levels, safely introducing them to the physical techniques as well as the mental training required to develop improved focus, confidence, self control, perseverance, and respect.

When two brothers were witness to domestic violence happening, their lives changed forever. From that moment on—and even more so when they became fathers and husbands—they were determined to do everything in their power to provide women with self-defense tools. Now that they’ve started Divas In Defense, they have put together expert teams of trainers and support staff in several states and in Mexico, all of whom share a passion for female empowerment and safety. Clients, on their quest for self-empowerment, train under expert instructors who lead women and girls aged 7 and older through self-defense classes while teaching them situational awareness, strikes, and de-arming moves while building their strength and stamina.
