I just wanted to take a quick moment to thank you again for your involvement with the RGI workshop last weekend.  Your knowledge, experience, and passion for ground fighting and the rest of the material really came through in your instruction and was a valuable part of the course curriculum.  I appreciate the time you took to answer my questions and work with me personally.  The course as a whole was very meaningful and provided a solid platform to build from as an ethical warrior as well. I hope our paths cross again soon!  
Thanks again.

Hi Craig,

I wanted you to know how impressed I was with you and your presentation.  The fact that you spent extra time and were very sensitive to the lady that had been assaulted was exactly what she needed. You also addressed some important issues for the teenagers.  They will never forget this experience.

I am a retired public school teacher/counselor after 38 years on the front line of education.  All my antennas were on alert with the needs of our small class.  You did a wonderful job and I will highly recommend you to others.

I admire your skills and wish you much success on your mission.

Thank You!

Thank you for your dedication and commitment to making the world a better place!  It was so evident that you love what you do and we appreciate you sharing that passion with us.  My daughter and I really benefitted from your class.  As you said, awareness is such a huge first step in creating a safer world.  You raised our awareness of potential dangerous situations, and empowered us with skills to prevent and/or handle these situations effectively.

On a personal note, it brought to the surface wounds from my past, and enabled me to share them in a helpful way with my daughter- and my teenage son.  It opened a dialogue that was so crucial for me to have with my teenagers preparing to head out into the world.  So, your efforts have helped in a very personal way, and for that I thank you deeply.  


Thank you,
Kristin Ferro
