  Here is what people are saying about Instructor Tom Bloomfield and his methodology:  

"This program is incredible. I didn't realize how easy it is to learn, and teach self-defense. My husband and children love watching and learning with me, and we have all become more confident. The material is comprehensive and easy to learn."
Cindy J., Jacksonville FL

"I work late and have to walk to my car at night sometimes. Your program opened my eyes about how to be more alert and protect myself if needed."
Maria M., San Francisco CA

"Great program! You've shown me that you don't need fancy martial arts moves to be able to defend yourself. Anyone can -- and definitely should -- learn your techniques!"
Joseph P., Brockton MA

"I always had a lingering fear for the safety of my family. After getting this program I know what to do in dangerous situations and have a lot more confidence and peace of mind."
Susan K., San Anselmo, CA

"Tom is great. He has taught my four-year old exactly what to do if somebody grabs him by the wrist, the neck, or the shirt. His techniques are simple to learn and fun, and now I am teaching them to everyone I know."
Elena L., Sarasota FL

"This program breaks self-defense into easy to learn steps for teaching people how to really protecting themselves if the need arises. Terrific!"
Andy T., Osprey FL


"This program provided me with a sense of internal power and confidence that I hadn’t felt before. Now I am armed to stand up for myself..
Nancy T., Los Angeles CA

"I thought that to disable an attacker you had to be huge and strong. I now see that there are numerous opportunities for anyone of any size to stun an attacker. Size and strength are less important than knowing key parts of the body and simple moves. I´ll always have the upper hand in any dangerous or fighting situation."
Sam R., Osprey FL

"I am able to now understand how my environment can help me protect myself in a dangerous situation."
Mark B., Brooklyn NY

"I've learned so much from this program. Tom Bloomfield’s approach is amazing because you don’t need to know any fancy or difficult martial arts moves. He shows normal women like me how to defend ourselves by using our natural instincts."
Joan M., Chicago IL

"This program is so easy to learn, and fun to do. This kind of wisdom should be taught in every school. What Tom teaches is truly amazing – and yet simple to learn."
Andrew T., Bridgewater MA

" Tom's instruction has given me more discipline, confidence, and helped me trim down and stay healthy."
Julie M., North Port FL

"I got into this with my daughter. I did some martial arts in high school, but Tom teaches true, practical self-defense. My daughter's self-confidence has increased along with mine. This program is great, for anybody, and is excellent for families to do together." -
Anthony S., North Port FL

"I just wanted to say that Mr. Bloomfield has been a wonderful influence on my two sons ages 5 and 11, building stronger bodies, minds, confidence and respect both for themselves and others."
John I., Sarasota FL

"In addition to teaching self-defense, your program taught me about how to establish boundaries to keep my children safe and help them be more responsible. Thank you for making me a better parent."
Tatiana L, Venice FL

How to treat a school bully

Many parents make the mistake of assuming school bullies are just big harmless kids who just want a little attention. This may be true in some cases but the reality is the school bully may be a violent person who terrorizes kids physically and emotionally on a daily basis.

If the school bully is allowed to continue their harassment they may get worse in their level of attacks, sometimes with fatal results. Bullying is not just verbal abuse; bullies will usually assault their victims if they know they can get away with it.

Bullying affects girls just as much as boys.

It is true that the average school bully may not harm someone if they get the impression that doing so will get them hurt in return, but a lot of kids lack the confidence and the basic skills to take care of themselves.

Parents often forget that they are raising adults, not children. Reinforcing mature and responsible behavior from a young age is very important. Maturity and responsibility is best taught by being a good example and not excessively punishing the child.

It is unfair to expect a child to cope with a school bully on their own but parents can not be there to protect their child all the time. When a school bully strikes good parents will always take it seriously, taking the matter up with the headmaster of the school as well as the parents of the bully. Curbing a bully’s attitude when they are young is vital and learning respect for others should be a priority to any parent and teacher giving life-skills training.

Enrolling your child in a self-defense program or getting a home-study program can give children self confidence and prevent them from getting seriously injured. Self-defense is something that should be learned by the whole family. It can be even better if a group of your child’s friends or peers take the self-defense class or get the program as it builds a small community of people who are self-confident enough to stand together against the school bully.

A lot of parents will blame the school bully’s parents for their behavior, but it is important not to get angry at the parents of the school bully. A solution to the problem should be worked out between the parents, the headmaster, and the children who are affected. Treat it as a real problem and make sure both sides understand how it is making them feel. Sometimes the school bully will get a reality check when they discover that their actions affect more than the person they are traumatizing.

Some experts say it is best not to question your child directly if they are being bullied. Rather, ask them if there is a school bully and what your child does about them, what your child does during breaks and after school. Try to establish if your child has avoidance behavior or fears going to school. A lot of kids don’t like school, but they don’t fear going there if they are not being bullied.

Getting more people involved.

The school bully may be a solo artist or belong to a small group. It is not often that large groups of bullies exist because it is an unusual behavior. Getting other parents and teachers involved in creating a pleasant learning environment can go a long way to solving the problem. Create a community of people who do not tolerate violence and abuse. Get yourself involved in the school system and in your child’s self defense.
