Yes, yet another 5-star review for Rebecca and Defense-Ability. As the date approached for my daughter to head off to university, I became more and more concerned about her ability to keep herself safe in a big city of over a million people (San Jose). I searched the internet, scouring reviews to find a class that was practical - signing for ongoing lessons in martial arts wasn't what I was after (I'm sure they have their place). Finally I came across defense-ability.com.
On August 6, 2017, my wife and daughter took Rebecca's Mother-Daughter self-defense class. They were both super-positive about the class, feeling much better equipped to keep themselves safe. Rebecca doesn't just teach moves (she does that of course); perhaps more importantly, she teaches the participants to change their behavior and be aware of their surroundings. She educates the students about dangerous situations, when you are most vulnerable, and how to act to avoid an attack in the first place. Rebecca is highly experienced in her field (check out her website and these other reviews), and has been an instructor for the government for years. She knows her stuff and you will be glad you took her class.
All this is great, but I want to emphasize the importance of going back and practicing your newly acquired skills. Rebecca offers practice classes for very little money. Please, go attend one or two until you don't have to think about what to do. Repetition is the key to learning, and this is no different. So my wife and daughter returned last weekend to a practice session, and once again came home very pleased and feeling it was time very well spent.
Rebecca is extremely patient, so if you're afraid you might embarrass yourself or don't think you can do it, she will take you through the moves one on one at your own pace. My wife and daughter are both petite (less than a hundred pounds) so if that's you out there, don't feel like you can't participate.
Fathers, husbands, please consider having your daughters and/or wives take this class! I enthusiastically recommend it.
