A nice note to the Gardena Valley Japanese Cultural Institute after one of our Self Defense & Situational Awareness Workshops....

Dear Ms Mayeda,
Thank you so very much for offering the Senior Self Defense Class yesterday!
The instructor was DA BEST!!!
My friends and I learned so much and enjoyed every minute of the class.
In fact, we’d like to ask if you could offer it again early next year so we can refresh our memory to their very important helpful tips.
Again, Thank You and JCI for offering these classes.

With respect,
N.N.
