What others are saying about us:

When a skilled teacher made the choice to teach in an inner city school, she learned that safety and security for herself and for her students was on her shoulders. She found help at Petrosino's Street Protect Principle™ Training Center. I watched in amazement as this teacher's confidence grew in her ability to act appropriately when threatened. I, a 74 year old woman, went to meet Mr. Petrosino. In the past six months, my balance has improved. I learned it isn't personal strength that can keep me safe but an awareness of my surroundings and the knowledge of what I can do to confront the challenge. I have a long way to go; yet it is exciting to discover what I am capable of doing. Mr. Petrosino and his staff constantly train to help others regardless of age or ability. If you are experiencing fear, anxiety, immobility and feel overwhelmed, seek help from Street Protect Principle™ Training Center.

Thank you Al,

I am a student at Petrosino Personal Protection Training Center since 2005 and have enjoyed every minute of Mr. Petrosino's classes. The classes are serious, yet fun. I am physically challenged and travel in my own wheelchair... He teaches me at my own pace and never gets impatient or gives up teaching me anything no matter how long it takes. He and his instructors teach me both in and out of my wheelchair.

I checked out other self-defence sources. Nobody had any classes for the physically challenged.

I would highly recommend Mr. Petrosino's school to anyone young or old and especially the physically challenged. Mr. Petrosino teaches both martial arts and his own program called Street Protect Principle. SPP is the program I belong to. I learn both martial arts and how to defend myself on the streets where there are no rules. Come try a class for yourself. You won't be sorry.
