Self Disipline

We must be self disciplined because knowledge is only power when you take consistent action.  

I was suicidal and  Raven could see it. He invited me to his school and taught me some simple techniques that absolutely changed my life.  I would not be here today if it was not for him.

Anyone can do it!

O' Sensei  Raven came out of the environment where he had absolutely nothing. No money, no food, and lived in a one car garage. He was raised in a cult and nearly died from being poisoned. He fought back against all odds to become very successful.  He always says "If I can do it, YOU can do it to."

I came to Raven Self  Defense Academy to learn how to defend myself. But it is what I learned in addition to defending my self that has effected my life in such a positive and motivating way.  Thank you O' Sensei!
