Bill Valentine, wrestled in college, studied Judo and Jiu Jitsu in the Phillippines while in the service,and trained in Korean style karate, reaching the level of 5th degree black belt. While attending graduate school in the mid-70’s, Bill taught karate part time. Realizing the difficulty in teaching karate as a form of self-defense, he began to apply practical skills that were easy to learn when confronted with physical encounters. Bill and his sister Becky , a physical educator, felt that a self defense class was needed that was easy to learn and teach. They decided to combine their experiences to craft a program that would be both practical and effective. Bill and Becky co-authored “Self Defense For Life,” and designed school programs for 7th and 10th graders that followed the State Framework. The "WITS", (Whatever It Takes) Women's Self Defense Workbook, evolved from the self defense programs that Bill and Becky have developed over the last 26 years together.
