I started training here because I was getting bullied to the point I was at times afraid to go to school. This one kid, we will call “Richard”, tormented me every single day in school to my face and out of school on all my social media. There was no escape from “Richard”. “Richard” was a popular kid who boxed, he would come to me and throw jabs, grab me, corner me, etc. I felt like he was going to try to actually beat me up and I was defenseless.
That's when I found BRSD! The community and family like environment made me feel safe, as I was coming in knowing very little and very intimidated on the whole fighting thing. I came every single day…for months! I had so much fun! I knew within 2 weeks that I could safely get out of a choke hold, a grab, and how to move if someone was throwing jabs. Within 2 months I was confident I could take on” Richard” and I was no longer scared of him.
I'm not kidding when I say this place has completely changed my life. The techniques and understanding of how to defend myself in all typical situations has given me so much confidence in myself. I am no longer afraid of anyone no matter how big and strong. I don't plan on stopping my training ever! I love this place so much.
