Two words describe Greg Thompson: ability and wisdom. As a martial arts instructor, Greg Thompson is a rarity. He has the natural physical and mental abilities of a worldclass fighter and has the skills to back it up. His wisdom as an instructor is unsurpassed, having exceptional skills in all areas of martial arts,

from weapons to all ranges of fighting. With all this said, what makes him special is his ability to shift from fighter to student to instructor with amazing grace, humility and confidence. His unique talents of inventing have allowed Greg to make one of the most effective self-defense tools ever made, the Defenseband. Without a doubt it is the most devastating non-lethal self-defense tool for the individual I have ever seen. It is with great pride I call Greg one of my students, friend and instructors.
