See what people have to say about Charlaine Martin as a writer, speaker, and presenter:

Charlaine as a Program Developer and Workshop Presenter-Teacher

“As the director of a faith-based social service agency providing housing and life skills training to foster youth and young adults, it was important for me to find a Self Defense instructor who not only was knowledgeable about the required skills sets but could do so from a Christian perspective, i.e. protect yourself while acknowledging your perpetrator is also a child of God. Fortunately, Char and her late husband, Don, were recommended to me and we partnered with them for 5 years before they moved from our area. 

Not everyone can work with troubled, defensive teen girls and young adults. Char’s sincere nature and genuineness with our girls resonated successfully, and the Self Defense Series was one of the most popular classes of our entire 46-week curriculum. Char exhibited an easy-to-understand teaching style, possessed great patience (!) with our girls, and made the whole learning experience fun AND informative. Her biggest success, in my eyes, was the ability to incorporate all aspects of an individual: the emotional, physical, social, and spiritual while teaching the girls the ability to access the environment they found themselves in, make smart decisions to ensure their safety, and above all else, protect themselves without doing undue harm to others. “

Jill Miller, Director, PAL Mission  Canton, Ohio

“Good morning, Char; I just read your post about the Faith Fighters website. I want to let you know how much FF meant to my family. Jen was an active and aggressive little girl who needed to channel her energy in positive ways. Davey was a meek and timid little boy who needed his confidence boosted. You and Don came into our lives at the very moment we needed you. I will forever be grateful for the influence your teachings had on my family. God bless you!”
