Pure Self Defense Customer Testimonials and Reviews

"I feel safer in my own skin knowing that if I had to I could defend myself or others..."

  My younger sister and I took self defence lessons with Andy and they were fantastic! I wanted to learn how to protect myself, feel more confident, and feel empowered when I found out about “Pure Self Defense”. I gained all of these things from taking these lessons! I feel safer in my own skin knowing that if I had to I could defend myself or others if I were in danger. Andy is a great teacher who is very involved. Me and my sister both felt extremely comfortable with him.

Would definitely recommend!  

~ Sophia Morris,  Kelowna BC

"...it was totally worth it!"

  It is undeniable that Coach Andy is a very skilled and passionate self-defense instructor. He is very good at making you feel comfortable and confident while learning. I did a crash course and it was totally worth it! It gave me very good mental and physical basic skill set to face many different threats.  

~ Dr. Melina Gaudreault,  Quebec City QC

"...training with Andy is one of the best things that I have ever done for myself"

  This self defense training has been a blast! I've learned way more than I thought I would, and now that I know what I know, I believe that training with Andy is one of the best things that I have ever done for myself.  

~ Donald Black,  Entrepreneur,  Peachland BC

"I'm SO grateful to Coach Andy for teaching and training me..."

  Before I left on my three month backpacking trip, I finally did something I've wanted to do for ages - I learned self-defense! And I am so incredibly happy I did. It's given me a greater feeling of independence, strength and confidence.

I'm SO grateful to Coach Andy at Pure Self Defense for for teaching and training me. If you or anyone you know could benefit from this, Andy is brilliant. Super knowledgeable, helpful and friendly.

And no, he's not paying me to say this - he's legit just THAT good!  

~ Amy Binckli Smith,  Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN),  Kelowna BC

"So glad I made the choice to take this training..."

  So glad I made the choice to take this training with my daughter. It has been a real mind shift on how to take control of a dangerous situation and not be the victim. I pray neither of us will ever have to use any of these fighting skills, but we know we are prepared if it comes to that.

Thanks Andy!  

~ Kyla Feddersen,  Kelowna BC

"Andy's teaching style is fantastic!"

  I've been to two workshops that he has given at the martial arts school I belong to (Quest Martial Arts in Kelowna). Andy's teaching style is fantastic! You learn real world self defense and how to be aware and prepared without being paranoid.  

~ Rob Earl,  Kelowna BC

"...would recommend this to anyone!"

  Our members at The Woman's Place Fitness in Kelowna have given us numerous positive responses and excellent feedback on their experience training with Andy. His personality and teaching style made a seemingly complex topic like personal self defence easy and enjoyable for everyone to learn and apply in a very short period of time. I would recommend this to anyone!

"...he taught me more than just the 'what' and 'how', but also the 'why'."

  Andy is a great teacher and seems to really understand the concerns and threats that women face. I appreciated his down to earth teaching style and felt very comfortable with him. I really liked that he taught me more than just the "what" and "how", but also the "why". I feel much more confident in my ability to be a "hard target" to keep myself and my kids safe wherever we go. VERY empowering!  

~ Eniko Nordine,  Homemaker,  Kelowna, BC

"...love having Andy in to share his passion and knowledge!"

  I have had Andy in twice to give another perspective to my students as it pertains to self defence. They always love having him in to share his passion and knowledge!  

~ Chris Rowe,  Quest Martial Arts,  Kelowna BC

"I highly recommend his classes. It's something EVERY person should know!"

  I contacted Andy 45 days from when I was leaving to go overseas and he was willing to condense his 90 day course to teach me the fundamentals of self defense. No need for martial arts or any previous fighting knowledge - his style is so applicable to real-world situations.

I learned a lot of things that I had never even thought about in addition to realizing how useless a lot of the so-called "self defense advice" is that we gather from peers or TV and YouTube.

Andy is very kind and funny. He helps you learn how to deal with the stress and anxiety dangerous situations will elicit and how to move past it. I highly recommend his classes. It's something EVERY person should know!  

~ Tamara Sommer,  Kelowna BC

"...couldn't believe how much we learned in just a few months!"

  My wife, daughter, and myself trained with Andy for a few months and it made a big difference in all of our confidence and skill levels. We couldn't believe how much we learned in just a few months!

Both my Wife and Daughter have trained in Judo for years and while it is an awesome sport, it is a sport. Pure Self Defense is not. This is how to look after yourself when unexpected violence happens. It is also how to minimize and avoid violence in the first place.

Highly recommend this for anyone that feels the world getting a little crazy and wants to be able to deal with the unexpected.  

~ Paul Brand,  Entrepreneur,  Enderby BC

"...knowledgeable, friendly, and creates a very comfortable environment to learn in"

  We had the opportunity to have Coach Andy come teach a self defence session with myself and a small group of ladies from NOW Canada. He is knowledgeable, friendly, and creates a very comfortable environment to learn in. We hope to have him come do future sessions with this group of women!  

~ Rachel Kinvig,  NOW Canada,  Kelowna BC

"...he engages with his clients and helps you to reach your potential"

  Coach Andy is so awesome and such a kind soul! I absolutely love his passion for what he does and how he uses it in serving others... he engages with his clients and helps you to reach your potential.

Andy is both encouraging and empowering in his style of instruction. After just a few sessions I felt like I was already gaining the confidence and skill I always wanted to be able to protect myself and my family from harm. Blending his knowledge / expertise and keen sense of awareness with a genuine desire to help keep others safe, he provides the perfect balance of professionalism and FUN!

I highly recommend checking out his classes - it's incredibly empowering!  

~ Jen Thomson,  Lake Country BC

"...all the while keeping the training fun and exciting"

  Coach Andy is a fantastic, supportive, and knowledgeable self protection instructor.
He systematically guided me through every self defense concept being taught, all the while keeping the training sessions fun and exciting. I feel confident that I can stop an attacker if I have to.
Highly recommended!  

~ Dean Knowlton,  Kelowna BC

"I love his teaching style and learned a lot..."

  I love his teaching style and learned a lot... will definitely have more lessons with Andy!  

~ Sonja Riediger,  Kelowna BC

"...Pure Self Defense is the place to go!"

  If you are looking to develop self defense skills, Pure Self Defense is the place to go!

Passionate... Professional... Knowledgeable... Skilled...

This describes Andy Fanslau as he taught a 2.5 hour session with 8 teen girls learning through the Miss Kelowna Lady of the Lake program.

In this very short time he taught the girls the importance of setting personal boundaries and being discerning when making decisions.

Obviously, more time with Andy would be necessary to perfect their skills, but the girls finished the session feeling empowered with some basic self defense skills to protect themselves should they be caught in vulnerable circumstances.

I would recommend anyone to enroll in these classes.

Thank you, Andy at Pure Self Defense!  

~ Betty Cleland,  Lady Of The Lake Foundation,  Kelowna BC

"...knowledgeable, friendly, and taught us all some very valuable skills"

  Helped organize a self defense workshop for myself and some friends with Coach Andy. He was knowledgeable, friendly, and taught us all some very valuable skills. I would recommend Coach Andy to anyone who wants to learn practical real-world self-defense skills!  

~ Angela Norkum-Porubanec,  Kelowna BC

"Andy is an excellent coach..."

  Andy is an excellent coach. His class was thorough, fun, and very educational. I learned a lot and would definitely recommend him!  

~ A. Negin,  Kelowna BC

Knowing that you can stop a larger stronger attacker gives the kind of confidence and self-assurance needed for you to be a capable, switched-on, hard-target - the kind of person who is able to recognize and avoid, walk away from, de-escalate, and deal with a threat legally, morally and ethically - and in a worst case scenario, to be able to use the tool of violence in order to save your own life or the life of someone you care about from life-threatening danger.
