Letter of Commendation
This training is not for everyone. If you enjoy being a victim, this is not for you. However, if you are an honest citizen in need of the skills necessary to protect yourself and your loved ones from evil, this training is for you. If your profession is to protect good people from those who would do them harm, this is the advanced training you need to succeed where others would fail. I find this a fine balance of the skills necessary not just to survive, but to win!
I was introduced to Deane Wagner in 1995 by a mutual friend while seeking a serious training partner. Deane was a great fighter then, and the years of training since have distilled him into a more efficient “Artist” than I could have imagined. I’ve studied numerous martial arts since 1986, and I find Deane’s system one of the most relevant to the real world I’ve encountered. When the only acceptable outcome to a violent attack is for you to win, you need a professional “Warrior” with the heart of a teacher. I can recommend Deane as an Instructor without hesitation.
