Streetwize and Self-Defense Class Testimonials

Outstanding Training!

My daughter and I took a self defense training from Melonie and we could not have been more impressed. The knowledge she shared with us is invaluable! The new perspective we gained, as well as the skills we learned will help us protect ourselves should we ever be put in a dangerous situation. Melanie was very personable and we felt connected to her immediately. This is a training that every woman should take! I feel so fortunate to have had this experience with my daughter, and am so thankful that she has this new knowledge and perspective heading into her teenage years and young adulthood. I wish I had this same training as a young woman.

Relevant and Important

Enthusiastic, engaging presentation style. Relevant and important information delivered. Our session got a little off course and was rushed in the end, but still so helpful.

Good Experience

A good experience. I learned a great deal and I’m very glad I took the class.

Great Instruction

Melanie’s instruction was easy to understand and she made it applicable for all who attended.

Great Teacher

She did a great job of teaching exactly what to do when, i would take a part two class from her in a heart beat

Intense but beneficial

This was a very intense, beneficial class. The demonstration was great and the individual feedback while practicing was very helpful. Not sure I could have lasted more than 3 hours but I have trouble remembering all the moves. Strong instructor showed us how to be more confident.

We covered a lot in a short period of time. I would have liked a sheet showing moves and purpose so I could practice at home. I learned so much, thank you for offering this class.


an extraordinary event raising my awareness and providing me a vastly different way of thinking about things

Amazing Instructor

Melanie was an amazing instructor and so professional! I would love to sign-up for another one of her classes. Honestly, it was a lot of information in just three hours but I do feel confident about what she taught us. She really knows her stuff and was a fantastic presenter. I hope she comes back in the future.

Thank you for bringing in such an expert in the field of self defense! Melanie was great. I would definitely sign up for another one of her classes. My class seemed a little too crowded but she and her volunteers made it work.

Impressive and Fun!

Was so impressed and had fun learning to find my voice. Really really appreciated. If Melanie comes back, I’m bringing every lady that works with me.

Fabulous class!

This was a fabulous class! I loved the instructor and the practice was top notch! I would love to do additional training.
