    Taking Torriente's class was my first experience with any self-defense instruction, & I enjoyed myself. It helped that I was able to be paired with others of different strength levels, and height as attackers come in all shapes & sizes. His passion for teaching the art of self defense is contagious & makes you want to learn more.
    I highly recommend this class for anyone wanting to learn the basics of defending oneself, as in how to block, push someone away from you, if they attack you from behind, etc.

    My husband and I took this class together. The instructor/owner of the studio (Torriente) was great. He answered all of our questions, showed us several self-defense moves that we practiced with him and on each other. He also gave us great pointers and several dos and don'ts when it comes to safety and protecting oneself. Overall, great class. We will definitely be back to learn more.
