“This class is awesome! It's not an ordinary "karate-style" self-defense class as most of us would imagine. Impulse PDR uses realistic techniques based on physiological facts to teach self-defense. I learned so much during the two courses I participated in. Not only did we learn practical application and practice, but also the mental/emotional side of self-defense, something I had never thought about before! Devon is an excellent instructor, I would recommend this class to anyone who is able to take it!”
“This class is fantastic! It was exactly what I was looking for. Devon is a knowledgeable and passionate instructor. I highly recommend it. Definitely worth taking and I plan on taking it again. Thank you Devon! Great Class!”
“I highly recommend anyone, any age to take Devon's course. So informative yet fun! We had 7 ladies from my family in our group and when we left we felt confident and empowered. We are going to book another class for more family ASAP. Thank you Devon! S.P.E.A.R.”

“My family and I had the opportunity to participate in one of Impulse PDR's 4 hour "Safer in a Day" workshops and were all so happy we carved out the time to do so. While we have much more to learn about self-defense, the open conversation, physical training, and instant application of what was taught made the time incredibly valuable. We look forward to future classes with Devon.”
“Awesome class!!! Thank you for teaching and explaining everything! Can't wait for our next class!”
“I am glad to have attended one of Devon’s workshop class. His passion, background experience, stories, and knowledge made my stay enjoyable. He is very hands on with tactics rather than focusing on techniques. I left with more confidence and knowledge, and I recommend anyone in the Northern California area to attend one of his classes! Thank you Devon!”
Impulse PDR came to my work and taught us some awesome techniques in self defense. Devon and Darrell do a great job in this class you can tell they really enjoy teaching self defense and know what they are doing and passing this on to others. A lot of topics were covered and it was very draining but, well worth it. After the class I noticed I made more eye contact with strangers and my perception was definitely different in thinking. I couldn't of asked for better instructors. I wish I would of learned this along time ago. I can't wait until round 2!!
“This class is definitely worth attending! I learned way more in this 4 hour class than I initially thought I would. Not only was the class focused on physical self-defense techniques, but it was also focused on mental and emotional tactics to stay alert and unafraid in dangerous situations. Devon was an amazing teacher and all the ladies in my training group felt safe and in good hands with him as our instructor. If you're looking for a good self-defense class, I highly recommend Impulse PDR!”
“Devon is a hands on instructor with a passion and knowledge that pours out through the entire class. You will leave informed and realize you are more capable then you may think to better protect yourself.”
“I took Devon’s class when he was in Turkey. I simply wanted an idea of possible solutions. I thoroughly enjoyed his classes because he puts you in an everyday scenario and takes you step by step through the process. He really can take his time and listening to him talk you can tell how much passion he has for what he teaches. You might not become perfect on the first run but repetition will make it all instinctual.”
“I've had the pleasure of training with you and teaching with you! In both roles what I have appreciated most is your desire and ability to get inside another person's experience, to understand thoughts and feelings, and to find a way to bring that into the training environment, and from there into real-world application. That makes for a powerful personal connection, and creates both trust and a willingness to try things that are outside the comfort zone.
I also have enjoyed your energy and enthusiasm - there's no way to just "go through the motions" with you because inspire your companions and partners to put as much of themselves into their training as you do.”

“Devon is one of the most driven trainers I know. I don't know if he doesn't quit thinking of ways to make you safer. Devon possess the extreme skills of a great instructor and he ensures when you leave his training you know that you are capable of defending yourself. This is a must have course!”
“I have trained with Impulse PDR and highly recommend that you train with them. They are passionate about your safety!!”
