About A Chat with MPMA SELF DEFENSE
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We teach a mixed program built on karate for basic strikes and kicks; escrima for defense against weaponry, and Juijitsu for joint manipulations, ground fighting, and submission training; all geared towards escape and boosting self esteem, and personal empowerment.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
As a bullied child I turned to martial arts to defend myself and as I grew I wanted to impart the training in a safe and constructive way for others to learn to be empowered and safe when faced with bullying and attempted assault.
What do you love most about your job?
I love teaching my amazing group of students. Many of my students start with no or little knowledge and often have fear from a previous bullying/attack. When the techniques start to sink in and they start to feel confident; often for first time; is what keeps me doing what I'm doing.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
I taught a trial student some basic defense who was able to internalize and immediately use what they learned later that week against a possible assault. They returned to train and graduated shortly after to their level 1 rank of yellow belt.
