I love Cornerstone! The changes that I have seen in my son are wonderful. I’m also taking classes myself and have found personal zen. It’s a family environment. Tang Soo!

This is the BEST Martial Arts School ! I've have my three children and I have to say it was the best decision I could make for them. It helped my children significantly gain confidence, self independence, and self esteem. The loving environment, the organization, and the teacher instruction are what I believe to be the key success of Cornerstone and Martial Arts.

It’s Top Notch.
The effort put into each class to teach not only the craft itself but the wisdom through words surrounding it, is impeccable. The care and thoughtfulness put forth to help the students understand Tang Soo Do and it’s applicability to life is quite beautiful to say the least.
I am impressed with the organization, layout, and cleanliness of the facility as well.
I couldn’t be happier with the decision of choosing this school for my Son.
I am looking forward to seeing his growth along with all the other students.
Well done Mr. Dulaney, Sir, well done.

This place is awesome! Great big facility and clean. Bu Sabom Dulaney is good with the kids and they really look forward to coming. If you want your kids to do something outside of the normal sports, Karate here would be an excellent choice.

I’ve got experience in other martial arts, but Cornerstone takes their training to the next level. Cornerstone is a very close-knit, family friendly environment and I highly recommend this academy to everyone.

The Shopper’s Self-Defense Guide

Holiday shopping can be a thrill. In a good way and even in a bad way. Adding a little self-defense mentality can go a long way.

 

 

Self-Awareness

You have society on your side. Potential criminals (for the most part) won’t just obnoxiously run up to you in front of a crowd and take your things.

These criminals are looking for an opportune situation. As long as you are aware of your surroundings, you can prevent yourself from ever falling into one of these situations.

Your own body is a part of your surroundings. It would be a foolish decision to count cash in public. This is something you should be aware of, and instead count your cash privately.

The ultimate holiday shopping self-defense tip is to simply be aware. Be aware of where a potential pickpocket is, and what a potential pickpocket is looking for.

The Pick Pocket

Pickpockets thrive on holiday shopping. There are crowds of people, loaded with cash and jewelry who know nothing about practical self-defense.

Get inside the mind of the pickpocket. They are looking for crowds. Pay attention when in a crowd. Don’t forget where all your belongings are.

Avoid dark areas. Keep your wallet in your front pockets. Don’t let your bag or purse hang behind you. Everything valuable should be positioned up front where your eyes and hands can follow them at all time.

Wear simple, comfortable, and non-flowing clothing. The biggest aspect of holiday shopping self-defense is being prepared. Pay attention and stay safe.

Dealing With Your Car

Another holiday shopping hotspot for thieves is your vehicle.

Pay attention to where you parked. Don’t park in a dark corner. Park where it’s bright. Even if this means you have to park further away, putting yourself in a favorable position is the centerpiece of holiday shopping self-defense.

Pay attention when you finish shopping. The walk back to you car is the most dangerous. The criminals know that you are finished with all of your holiday gifts and exhausted. Have your keys ready in hand, and don’t waste any time. Depending on the laws in your state, you might consider a personal alarm device or a self-defense keychain that has pointed edges that can be used to strike at an attacker’s face.

Pay attention to your surroundings, get to your car, and get out. If you are worried about your
situation, then don’t be scared to ask a security guard to escort you.
