Moshe, you are a gentle soul with the heart of a warrior, thank you for sharing your knowledge and insights. (Gladys, Krav Maga student, Grand Rapids, Michigan)

You have a great way of making something very effective, in the right situation, deadly, seem very approachable to even the most timid of people.  (Michele Vicchitto, Pennsylvania)
