After attending the self-defense class I left feeling stronger and more empowered then when I first walked in. The informative content was facilitated by a wonderful instructor, I would highly recommend this class!! - Twyla Greenstein

My husband and I were so impressed at how much our daughter learned in just a few sessions. Wes covers examples of real life scenarios and how to react safely, stay alert and aware, and teaches simple but effective strategies for every age. I especially appreciated how he kept the sessions engaging for her without losing the seriousness of the lessons. Thank you Wes! - Talitha Humphrey

Had a lot of fun attending a self defence course with my two young daughters but more importantly we all came out of the course feeling stronger and confident. Thanks so much Wes!! - Jill Michelson Campbell

I did the ladies self defense course tonight and really enjoyed it. Wes was awesome and very patient with us ladies. I've never had three hours pass by so quickly. Wes is very knowledgeable and skilled in martial arts. I feel I came away with more knowledge and confidence than I went in. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone and would like to do a refresher course in the future. Thanks so much Wes. - Rosalind Y Hackett

Slashing with rubber knives and hitting with sticks. What a great way to spend an afternoon. Lol !! Seriously, a lot covered in only 4 hours. Articulated instruction and demonstrations made it easier to learn the moves. Good cardio work out too !!! I’ll be back for more punishment. - Karen Metz

This is the second self defense course I have taken taught by Infinite Self defense. I have a career that takes me to places out of cell phone service on my own. My accommodation is in a tent often in a camp where I am the only woman, especially in the colder season. Wes is extremely knowledgeable and delivers the information in a way that is easy to learn and retain. Taking this course more than once not only gave me more confidence in any situation, but it also gave me a deeper understanding of self defense. The thing I enjoy the most about women’s self defense is even though there is the same ‘core’ material, each class has new information based on questions asked from the class. I highly recommend Infinite Self Defense to anyone who is even just curious to take a self defense course. - Krista Lynn

Thank you so much Wes for teaching my Junior High students at Ralston School, your amazing Self Defence course. The students are still talking about it and wondering when you are going to come back. You spoke to them so eloquently and passionately about confidence and empowered each of them. You are such a leader and role model to our youth. I look forward to learning more about your teachings. Sincerely, Jennifer Herrell, Prairie Rose SD
