Enoch Ilembwa

When I received the call from Ross with regards to the Urban Self Defense/ U.S.D. program I was very enthusiastic about it.

Having grown up in a household that kept me very insulated and protected from the atrocities that the world had to offer i never really realized the horrors that went on beyond my bubble.

I feel as though it is my responsibility to give a sense of security to the women and youngsters of the community.

Having travelled all over the globe i have managed to dabble and train in numerous martial arts, karate, judo, Taekwondo, and recently boxing and Jiu Jitsu. With the vast knowledge I managed to acquire i feel like I owe it to give back to the community.
