What People Are Saying...

I want to tell you, how very very very much I appreciate and LOVE the Secret's to Women's Self Defense course.

I am no stranger to defending myself.... I've also taken a few martial arts courses over the years, taught a Women's Self Defense course and have had armed combat training. That coupled with my job and the training I receive there, I was not sure how much I would get out of this course.

But, this is course is amazing. I've learned a lot, far more than I ever thought I would...

This information is critical to all women, especially mothers. This more than any other course I've taken since my divorce has motivated me to change for the better.

I am so completely impressed that I would like to pay for it.

Thank you for letting me take this course as part of the trial phase. But, Please send me billing information, as there is no way I could take this for free. So much time and effort has gone into it.... As a mother, and single at that to 3 young angels, nothing is more important to me than their health and security. They won't have that if I don't have it myself.

So again, from the very bottom of my heart and soul, "THANK YOU SO MUCH" for this opportunity and please let me pay.

Truly, sincerely, and honestly happily,
