While most of our reviews are on our Facebook page and Google listing, the following is a collection of comments from students and others who have experience of ESP. Please allow me to take this opportunity to thank everyone once again for their comments! They mean a great deal to me and are very greatly appreciated!
‘Thorough and well-versed self-protection. Expertly conceptualized and executed, a masterclass for any budding student that is ready to learn.’
–Dale Parker, Stoke-on-Trent
‘Excellent start up sessions if you’re new to this kind of thing and excellent if you’re an advanced learner – win win. Effective, flexible, fully inclusive and friendly training in the complex art of self defence / self preservation.’
–Alison Vaughan, Stoke-on-Trent
‘I also highly recommend ESP to anyone interested no matter your skill level, I had never done anything like this previously but feel I have benefited greatly from only a few sessions!! Josh is a great lad as well as a confident and clear teacher!’
–Rory Pickering, Stoke-on-Trent
‘Best self-protection class I have ever been. Very knowledgeable instructor, friendly students, reality based self-protection. Would recommend to anyone no matter your ability or fitness level.’
–Steven Harrison, Stoke-on-Trent.
‘When I get some holiday time I look forward to coming back to the classes! Although I was unsure about whether it would be for me. I enjoyed every session and felt fitter and more confident. Josh has got this completely spot on – its not about the moves Jackie Chan pulls – its about reading a situation and getting yourself ready just in case.Ill see you in Summer Josh :).’
–Ebrahim Arshad, Stoke-on-Trent
‘Josh’s original and friendly style of teaching, combined with his infectious enthusiasm, makes classes both instructive and highly enjoyable. Highly recommended for anyone with even a mild interest in self defence or fitness training.’
–Chris Low, Stoke
‘ESP combines the tried and tested techniques of old, with new innovative concepts from a wide variety of disciplines. I find the dynamic lessons challenging, both physically and mentally, but I get a true sense of achievement when I learn and implement a move in practice. 3 words to describe ESP: enjoyable, varied, useful.’
–O. Williams, Stoke
‘Having trained with Founding Instructor Josh Nixon for a few years I highly recommend this system. You not only learn how to protect yourself in a realistic manner, but you also have a great time doing it!’
–Charlie Gadd, Stoke-on-Trent
‘I have learnt from Josh for years and he is honestly the best teacher you could ever want. Josh has taught me from a beginner with no confidence to the point that I am fully confident in protecting myself and others. His system is so useful and it really works, you just can’t go wrong with him!’
–Chris Richardson, Stoke-on-Trent
‘I highly recommend ESP! Having trained with Josh for 6 maybe more years, I know he has what it takes to teach you how to defend yourself and how to keep fit. You always learn something new when training with Josh while having a great time doing so. … So DEFINITELY Recommended!!!!’
–Cal Roberts, Stoke-On-Trent
‘Josh has only been my teacher for a short while, but already his enthusiasm and dedication to his work have got me hooked on attending ESP. The lessons are both challenging and enjoyable, and although I am still a novice the skills Josh has taught me are already filling me with a sense of self confidence, and a lust to push myself further. I highly recommend ESP, the lessons are great fun, and the skills you learn will become invaluable.’
–M. Barnett, Stoke-on-Trent
‘I would not recommend anyone unless they were the real deal. That’s why I’m recommending Shifu Josh Nixon. He has all the qualities needed to be the best personal protection/martial arts instructor and it shows in the lessons he teaches. It is my own personal view that Josh demonstrates, delivers and instructs some of the best sessions that anyone could wish to have. In my opinion Josh is one of the best teachers of life skills in the business. It sounds unbelievable but believe me it’s true. Come see for yourself – you will enjoy the experience of one of his lessons.’
–Paul Horrobin, Stoke-on-Trent
