See What Our Gilbert Self-Defense Parents are Saying
We have been with Sandoval karate for the last 18 months and returned after about 4 years leave. My son tried karate for about 2 years then tried other interests, but he came back to Sandoval after trying a different studio, Sandoval runs a great studio, his Staff is courteous and has an interest in all the students. They are energetic and driven to get the students to excel. They focus on the basics then drive them to advanced skills. We are so happy to be in the Sandoval family
Sandoval Freestyle Karate is just as the 5 stars states… AS GOOD AS IT GETS! I have 2 children attending the studio, ages 9 and 6, and we have been attending 2x a week for the last 9 months. My children have had to endure a tremendous amount of stressors in their childhoods and I really wanted them to have an outlet, but I never could have imagined all the amazing things this studio has done for my precious boys. Not only are their plenty of instructors…
Wow! I have to say 2011/12 has been very good years for the Sandoval’s. They definitely deserve an upgrade from 4 stars to 5 stars. I’ve watched them grow from the last time I wrote my review, from moving their main school to a new location in Gilbert to opening a brand new 2nd location in Chandler. They have also become very involved in the Arizona tournament circuit, even running their own tournament, allowing students to grow by matching their skills against other schools.

Our Gilbert, Arizona self-defense classes teach students to build upon their physical strengths, use mental abilities to analyze situations, and be more astute when a physical encounter takes place.
Women Often Learn Self-Defense for Personal Protection
Data gathered in 2011 by the United States Census Bureau showed that the lifetime prevalence of rape among women is over 18%, a shockingly high number. According to the Arizona Department of Public Safety, over 900 rapes have been reported in 2013 so far. This does not take into account other forms of assault on women and many attacks are unreported. What can women do to protect themselves?
Who Should be Taking Self-Defense Lessons
The answer to the question above is simple: ‘everyone’! Yes, every single person, regardless of age, can benefit from self defense classes. If you want to feel safer on the streets at night and live life confident that you can handle a difficult situation brought about by a thug, self defense classes are for you. Choosing the right class for you is a different matter entirely as not all self defense courses are created equal. Some are run by professionals with decades of experience but there are some charlatans out there eager to take your money and offer nothing but clichéd nonsense in return.
What Will I Get Out of Taking Self-Defense Classes?
An important part of self defense is awareness of your surroundings. The best way to defend yourself is to avoid the attack altogether! You need to learn how to identify a potentially dangerous situation and use common sense to keep you out of harm’s way. For example, sit in the back seat of a taxi when travelling alone as you have two escape doors instead of the one available to you as a front seat passenger.
