“Thank YOU! Thank YOU! Thank You so much.  A lot of information in my one week of private instruction. I can tell a lot of organization and planning went into this. I feel far less uncertain about dangerous confrontations and equipped to be far more reactive – quicker.” ~Raquel (30)

“Regina is an amzing instructor tht empowers and uplifts to make you as a student, feel like a warrior. I no longer will live in fear, rather with strength and awareness as I go through my everyday life. This is such a good investment of time for any woman to feel safe and confident!” ~Tayler (20)

“I have always know I was a fighter. I am valuable and this is a crazy, messed up world I live in. It’s never  my intention to be a target, I wanted the knowledge to give myself and my family a greater survival rate. Regina has instilled in me and practiced what I need to know to be my first line of defense. I am more confident in being proactive.” ~Jacqueline (32)

“I learned a lot more than I thought I was going to. My favorite parts were learning about gun & knife disarming. Regina was able to keep me interested and answered all of the questions I had. It was really nice to learn how to protect myself in so many different ways, and to know I Can.” ~Laura (20)

“I love that Women Warrior Self Defense is reality based. I have definitely become more aware of my surroundings and recall situational awareness principles as I go about my daily life. Regina is very friendly, which helped me feel comfortable during class.” ~ Gwen (31)

“Regina is very caring and passionate about what she does. She makes everyone feel safe and comfortable. As an already confident young woman moving to NYC I was excited about learning ways to defend myself. I can now say I am even more confident. I know I have the knowledge and skills to protect myself. Regina and Smartsafe are truly a gift.  ~Kathryn (19)

“Initially, I took this course to support my daughter’s knowledge as she prepared to move to NYC. I have learned so much great information, as well as useful skills… I have never felt so confident!”  “Regina is strong and soft, which is hard to do. She made me feel comfortable.”   ~Sandra (53)

“As a woman living on my own for the first time in my life, classes like this give me the tools to feel confident in my new environment and in my ability to protect myself.” ~Rachel (45)

“You are a great instructor and provided us with a caring and safe environment while learning all these techniques. You are very kind, patient and always had our best interest at heart. The classes flowed smoothly and were well organized.”   ~Ximena (41)

“I really enjoyed your Women Warriors, self defense classes. I found you to be inspirational and informative. I really enjoyed your enthusiasm, understanding and caring nature. You explained all the techniques and situations well. You even made the most emotionally taxing classes easier to handle, specifically the domestic violence one. One of the most important things I got out of this was understanding. Someone close to me has been in a verbally, physically, mentally and emotionally abusive relationship for over 2 years; becoming increasingly isolated from me. I now realize what she deals with and understand more about how to help her.” ~Shelby (19)

“As a teacher you are energetic, dynamic, approachable and very knowledgeable. It’s easy to see this is your passion and you truly want women to learn and be safe. When I was a young teen I was groped by a man of 18, which was my neighbor. Had I known the techniques I do now, a lot of the abuse I took from him could have been prevented.”   ~Diana  (32)

tiger“Don’t let her sparkling eyes and friendly demeanor fool you. Beneath the surface, Regina is a tiger. Accept that predators exist in the world and learn, from Regina, the information and techniques to be the survivor, should you ever encounter one. ~Jennifer  (41)

“After taking just one hour of Smartsafe, women will become more empowered, more aware, and learn to protect themselves and their loved ones. Staying the course through regular Smartsafe training, will provide women the necessary training to survive a violent confrontation choosing not to become a target of opportunity.”   ~Dennis Stoika – CKM instructor, WCKM-Smartsafe instructor, CKM for Law Enforcement/Military instructor, and ECF Instructor, Former United States Marine, Former local Police Officer, Current Federal Agent

“Early in my life, I was harassed by my ex-husband. I let fear rule me and my reactions. I now know I will not let fear rule my reactions. I will and CAN fight back!” ~Betty (59)

I have always wanted to do this and glad I finally did. It was so empowering! I want all of my family and friends to have this knowledge.  ~Cheryl (57)

“This class has made me more confident in my ability to respond smartly to an attack and not freeze.”  ~Nicole (34)
