Success Martial Arts Senior Instructor Brian Higgins has partnered with the Twin Falls YMCA to offer a special FREE session of In The Zone. This revolutionary approach to self-defense, is unique. Unlike run of the mill self-defense programs, this innovative approach teaches fear management and how to deal with your “fight or flight” response.
Coach Higgins calls it “From Eeeek to GRRRR”.
Higgins is uniquely suited to sharing this specific topic with teen-age girls. His career in juvenile detention dealing with underage victims and offenders helps him to relate to teens in a way that will educate them without turning them off.
