I've been a member of Fortress since last fall and LOVE the women's strike fit classes and the jiujitsu training. The reality-based self-defense John Betancourt teaches is absolutely the best training I have ever received in years of taking classes. John instills instinctual defense reactions and builds your personal skill set along with physical fitness that no other discipline can match. I do yoga, hike and hunt, but the martial arts and boxing conditioning have taken my body to the next level. At age 56, I feel empowered and strong, with more confidence and more wisdom about what to do "if" the unthinkable happens to me or my family. Thank you, Fortress, for top-drawer professionalism and the best self-defense training possible.
Great lesson! John is a sharp, skilled instructor that made me a better shooter. I’m a competitive pistol shooter, yet John took the time to understand my background and made a customized lesson to teach me skills I hadn’t learned. Further, he broke the lessons into smaller skills to build on throughout the day. Well worth the investment, and looking forward to the next one.
Took a personal protection training course with John, some of the best techniques and knowledge I’ve been taught. Practical application of skills, put together class, and very enjoyable. Can’t wait to go back for another class. Highly recommend!
We had a great day with John @ Fortress Combat in Bozeman. He really tailored the class to our needs, skills, carry laws, technical hardware and was incredibly well put together. Easy to relate to no matter what your skill level. I highly recommend him and we are looking forward to our next class in a few weeks!
Best CCW class I’ve ever taken. Thorough explanation of mindset and law. Information that I was really not able to find anywhere else. John knows his stuff inside and out. You won’t regret taking his class. Highly recommend!
