    Anyone who ever wanted to learn self-defense needs to sign up for Coach Joyce’s class and read his book. Professional, to-the-point, easy to follow and direct instruction, using analogies and real-life situations that stay with you long after you leave the lesson floor. I’ve taken several lessons with Coach Joyce and plan on signing up for the next class. If you ever have fear, or doubt your abilities to protect yourself walking down the street, go take one lesson with Michael – he’ll show you differently. – Deb

  2. I’m interested in local fencing classes, can you provide additional information regarding your offerings?
