    I highly recommend this class. Fantastic info and repeated hands on practice. Torriente wants you to know what the proper execution feels like. The studio offers drop in classes so you can continue to build muscle memory and confidence.

    Highly recommend! I wasn’t sure what to expect but this experience with Torriente was a great way to learn (hands-on in a big way!) and explore self-defense in a way that doesn’t make you feel like a victim or live in fear. I know there is much more I could learn and the content and pace of the class made the hour flyby. Lots of fun and lots of new knowledge!

    This class was personalized for me by the instructor. He was very good at explaining and discussing what we were doing and focusing on. I really enjoyed it and felt I learned alot in just the first class! I look forward to my next class.

    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.
