About the Author

Bill Valentine has a background in collegian wrestling and judo as well as Tae kwon-do. Bill began teaching Korean style karate in the early 1970s while attending graduate school, reaching the level of 5th degree black belt. Realizing the difficulty in teaching karate as a form of self-defense, he began to apply practical skills that are easy to learn and effective when confronted with physical encounters. Bill and his sister Becky felt that a class was needed for instructors that was easy to learn and teach. They decided to combine their experiences to craft a program that would be both practical and effective.

Becky Valentine received her Physical Education Degree from Occidental College and capped it off with a M.S. Degree in Instructional Curriculum. She previously spearheaded a physical education department that was chosen as a model program for the State of California, and has been a guest speaker at several CAHPERD conferences. In and out of the classroom Becky is on the cutting edge of self-defense. Along with her brother Bill, they have created and developed the "Self-Defense for Life" program and handbook for instructors and educators. You don't have to be a black belt to defend yourself. Because this is a verbal and physical approach that everyone can use, this program has been implemented at the Cal Poly Workshop for Physical Educators, the California Middle School Physical Education Workshop and many school districts throughout California.
