One Way to Fight PTSD

“When discharged from the Army, I was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.  I struggled with fear at almost every moment.  Mainly afraid I would be over powered all over again.  As a result, I became anti-social, a hermit and the flashbacks were unbearable.  After seeking medical treatment I gathered up the courage to start self defense training at United Self Defense Academy.  I was welcomed with understanding and paced training.  Working through my fears and learning how defend myself from real threats.   I am so grateful to fight off the flashbacks and panic.  Sensei Margaret has helped me attain a new self confidence and courage of which I am so grateful.  I am healing with every class and becoming more confident with every new skill learned.”
