"There are a lot of self-defence/martial art classes out there. I’ve been around a long time. I’ve seen rubbish and I’ve seen excellence. DDKM fits into the excellence category.There is a great vibe and I have never once come away feeling negative. If you want to get fit and protect yourself and your family this is a good place to start!"
