WMSN Testimonials

“Master Pinpin is an amazing instructor with a wealth of knowledge for all ages. She was able to help empower our group of moms to feel more equipped in self defense, while giving our young ones some relevant tips on how to respond in a threatening situation. As little as one session provided great defensive tools. Six or more, even better... We got a great workout, and had loads of laughs too! Why be stuck, frozen, not knowing what to do, when you can load your tool belt with defensive moves that can save your life?“

Marilyn Alden

"We learn principles and techniques that we can use in everyday life - whether we are being attacked physically or mentally (in a work atmosphere ) to think and respond, with action, in a focused, controlled, powerful way. It’s fun to attendclass with my daughter, Sala.”

Krystal Romero

Arlene Hsu

“Through the women Self Defense classes, I have learned to be more aware of my surroundings and I've learned to be prepared in physically confrontational situations “

Connie Schenaroff

"I have taken self-defense classes for the past several years and it has been a wonderful experience. I typically train 1 to 2 times a week, which has enhanced my stamina and agility. The workouts are challenging and push me past my comfort zone, but the reward is a healthier and fit body. Mentally, the training has instilled in me more confidence knowing that I have the tools to protect myself if need be. It has also taught me to be more mindful of my surrounding. I am not a victim!!!”

Michelle Baker


“Before attending the self defense classes, I had absolutely no experience and was a bit intimidated. Master Pinpin and the staff were quick to make me feel comfortable and modified moves to my abilities. Even at times where I felt lost or confused, she was more than happy to break it down so I understand the moves better. The best part is that I have much more confidence to defend myself, if I had to. This class helps you become more prepared, not to mention a killer workout. Thanks!"


Mandi Klein


"Learning Karate increased my self-esteem, confidence, leadership skills, and - I am no longer that shy quiet kid - all because of martial arts. I think martial arts are a great skill to learn because it is so practical and you only need the basics to save lives."
