IF VIOLENT CRIME IS TO BE CURBED, IT IS ONLY THE INTENDED VICTIM WHO CAN DO IT.
THE FELON DOES NOT FEAR THE POLICE, AND HE FEARS NEITHER THE JUDGE NOR JURY. THEREFORE HE MUST BE TAUGHT TO FEAR HIS VICTIM.
- Rob Andress has had extensive Martial Arts and Combative Training, holding ranking in Nihon Goshin Jutsu as well as in Nyingbulam Jujitsu. With experience in Combative Kickboxing as well as certification in Fitness Kickboxing and Mixed Martial Arts Training, Rob brings a vast knowledge and understanding of violence to his teaching. It is through his own experiences that Rob understands there is a better way to provide Self Defence training to people who have no interest in spending years in a Martial Arts Dojo trying to learn how to protect themselves with an Art requiring finite movements and technical skills that might get them points in a tournament - but that would most likely fail them in a high violent situation.
- Rob's focus is to help people become safer, and live safer lives. Seeing street violence first hand on a number of occasions, and having the opportunity to work with survivors of violence and sexual attacks, Rob understands that Self Defence training needs to be effective and easy to learn, with one goal - to get you home to your family safely.
- Rob's approach to violence prevention is simple, if you can become aware enough to stop yourself from getting involved in a violent situation, you've won. You don't need to prove anything to anyone - just leave. However, if you can't get away you need to know how to eliminate a threat quickly and in the most effective way possible - and it needs to be done in a manner that removes or lowers your risk for injury.
- Beth Andress has trained in two styles of Japanese Jujitsu, holds Instructor Certifications in fitness kickboxing and is employed in law enforcement. More notable, however - Beth is an assault survivor. Her understanding of the feelings of confusion, fear, anger and the instant loss of self confidence in a sexual assault situation has made Beth approachable and open at classes and seminars.
Violence doesn't care who you are, what you do for a living, or what you train in.
Violence chooses the day.
