Treadstone Defensive Tactics About Us - Meet The Team



In college, I went to school in the middle of Atlanta and having labs late at night, I thought it would be good to learn self-defense.After my first trial class, I was hooked. Krav Maga has helped me build confidence in myself as well as break out of my introverted shell. My training has helped me learn not only how to defend myself, but it has also taught me new things about myself and my inner strength.

Treadstone Defensive Tactics About Us - Meet The Team



I started training in Krav Maga because I needed to start living a healthier lifestyle and I hated going to the gym and running on treadmills. Krav helped me get into shape while learning a useful skill and building confidence. Choosing the right place to train is important and that’s whyI chose Treadstone. The lineage of training and methodology of techniques are exactly what I was looking for.
