Podcast episode 25: How to choose a self-defense class or instructor

This episode is late again for a variety of reasons, not least of which is that I have been travelling. That said, I think you’ll like it as it answers a question I get asked all the time: how do I choose a self-defense class or instructor?

In this episode, I list numerous aspects you should take into consideration before making such a choice. The list isn’t complete, but it certainly helps you avoid the biggest problems.

Enjoy!
