Best Possible Instructor
“In my work as a government consultant, I travel to many troubled places in the world where I feel a need for greater personal security. After carefully evaluating my options, I learned that Joe Robaina is one of the two specialists in cane defense and the best possible instructor. Keith Melton
An Experience 2nd to None
“An Experience 2nd to None From first hand experience in many courses in many schools , Dr Robina teaching, guidance and follow up with students is SECOND TO NONE. World Cass Instructor and opportunity he is offering. I strongly recommend this course. – Gil Martinez
Feeling a Lot Safer Now
GM Joe, I just watched the first three Powershot Pre-Load Morph videos. These 3 videos alone are worth the rice of the monthly subscription. This takes the Five 2 Survive course to the next level. I practiced for 30 min in my hotel room this morning and have SO MUCH more confidence walking around this city now. There was alrady a ton of content to go through before you added the Cane Morph. You break every movement down so we can practice slow and then increase our speed. Love what you have put together! Anyone who wants to learn self defense is c razy not to get this course!Have a great day. Mine is a little safer now because of you. Mike" Dr. Mike Uriarte
