"I have attended classes and seminars taught by Wes in both Systema and Self Defense.  I believe in this method and have used it.  I have felt confident and avoided real life conflict -- in a calm and safe manner.  If you run, bike, walk, or skate outside consider attending.  This is a safe environment to learn skills that you can utilize as soon as you leave class.  You have the right to feel safe at home, at school, at work, and in nature."
