Customer Testimonial

"I attended a 4/hour "CONTACT" self defense class @ JMD Defense, in the Chicago "Beverly" neighborhood.  The instructor, is an EXCELLENT trainer & has worked in Law Enforcement for 18+Years & depending on group size she will come to U!  She shared various ways to free yourself & quickly get away from an attacker.  I HIGHLY recommend the class for ALL... especially WOMEN. "
