Dennis Forleo has been involved in martial arts and self-defense for over 30 years and has had his own school here in Billings for 14 years. He has attained a 4th Degree black belt in Taekwondo, a 5th Degree in Ju Jitsu, a 7th Degree in Chi-Tu Do, and an 8th Degree in Eskrima. Always striving to learn, he most recently achieved a 1st Degree Black Belt in Krav Maga. He is also a Master FAST Instructor and Predator.

Master Forleo teaches the Black Belt classes and many of the Advanced levels in his school. Master Forleo was also recently recognized by the USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame as “2014 Master of the Year.”

Dennis has years of experience helping literally thousands of children, teens, women and men to break through the fear of conflict to experience life more fully with greater confidence and composure. Using the award-winning FAST Defense program in settings outside the martial arts school, his engaging teaching style allows participants to face their fears and find the inner strength to stand up for themselves in every facet of life.

Description of class: Take a stressful event and add a triggered emotional reaction and what’s the result? The potential for a “knee jerk” response that could make the situation worse--maybe much worse.  

Humans are hard-wired to be emotional creatures, which means we often react in emotional, “knee-jerk” ways to conflict in the workplace. These reactions can unfortunately get us into even deeper trouble.

He will share simple strategies for de-escalation and assertive conflict resolution. Participants will walk away with an understanding of how to avoid being a Knee-Jerk and how to safely and effectively respond when faced with a conflict situation.
