Prof. Van over is a really nice guy. He helps me a lot with my training. It is impossible to get a bad grade in this class. Show up, go through the movements, and you'll be fine. I didn't really take the normal class, I was on the advanced side, but it's still terribly easy. He's tight.

Fairly easy class. Basically you show up, learn the moves and that's about it. The final isn't that bad either. Again, just show up, that's all it really is. He's also pretty cool and helps you make sure you got the moves down.

This class was awesome. you learn valuable defenses. You DO need to attend class but this a great chill class where you can learn the standards of defending yourself. Teacher is great and you can easily ask him a question. The only minor problem is if your partner doesn't show up, you may feel a …more little awkward. Great class! take it! less

Great teacher i learned a lot on how to defend myself. He only gives out a final and one assignment very easy. He always makes sure you get it right. he walks around the class to see if anyone is having trouble. NO ONE GETS HURT. He makes sure his moves are safe to do.

James is very helpful, hands on demonstrations. I learned a lot on how to defend myself not just from an attacker alone, but from different weapons or positions. He is very approachable if your confused or nervous, and he lets us have fun while doing so.

Amazing class! He makes sure you and your partner are doing everything correct and is approachable if you have any questions. Grade is based on attendance and a final. The final is both written and a demonstration of certain moves you learned in class. Wear comfortable clothing, no jeans. You learn …more so much on how to defend yourself and others. less

I am currently taking Self-Defense w Prof. VanOver & I love it! He clearly loves what he does & you will enjoy it too. Attendance is crucial, because he teaches new moves everyday -- that will lead up to a final. Other than that the class is fun, he makes sure you don't get hurt & will help you …more prefect your moves. Overall, great professor & class less

You will leave this class with a new confidence. Great for teeny tiny, non imposing girls like myself. Vanover is super easy-going and has no problem with helping you get the techniques down. Ask any questions you may have.

Just show up and pass. Theres a lot of moves to learn so if you miss one class, you get behind. The final is a combination of the moves. I missed a day or two and hes really understandable! Just dont take advantage of his niceness
