A Chat with Goldberg Self Defense Academy
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
At GSDA, we do not work on forms, stands, and disciplines. We are here to learn to fight effectively and to the point—aka street fighting. All moves here are built around your reflexes, and you develop your own way to use the moves, making it more natural….
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Every student is considered a veteran here. Most have probably been in the sport already and maybe exchanged some punches…. Here we take you from where you are and direct you the way to use what you have.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
After learning self-defense for 33 years, I know krav maga from Israel, muay thai from Thailand, and wing chun from China. I combined the best from each and created a direct yet very effective way to defend yourself. So with my love and passion for this I opened up my first USA club, and I hope to see it spread.
What do you love most about your job?
That I get to help people deal with daily problems by helping them release stress, stay fit, and learn defense, and I get to do this all day and get payed for it….
