  • With my many years of martial arts experience I have ascertained that Calen Paine has an acute ability to integrate techniques and tactics from a wide variety of martial and combative arts, to develop a practical and applicable personal defense system. His presentation of his martial arts repertoire is simple, concise, and direct for any level of personal protection advocate. I would recommend him as a highly skilled practitioner and qualified instructor.
