"I wanted to learn how to protect myself.  But I was always intimidated to go into a martial arts school.  When I learned about the self defense seminar at Seung-ni from a co-worker I decided to give it a try.  The instructor was so kind and encouraging.  I made a ton of friends and the self defense moves are simple to learn, fun to practice and I feel powerful!"
