"My family has known Marc Gaudet for many years and fully endorse the training and education you get from being involved with Tough Monkey. We got to know Marc as our self-defense instructor and found him to have a unique way of engaging children and adults to keep us motivated toward achieving our goals. As a result, we have a house full of healthy habits. If you are looking for someone to train with who genuinely cares for your well-being and goals, you will not be disappointed."
"I started my self-defense journey because I was looking for an activity to connect with others and lose weight. The program Marc ran was a great mixture of fun, challenge and excellent training. What started as a weight loss journey turned into a journey of learning how to plan and reach goals, all with Marc’s and his wife’s encouragement, support and expertise. Even when I didn’t think I could achieve my goals, they were always there to encourage, inspire, and give me new ways to attain better fitness. I enrolled my children in his program as well. He made it fun for them to learn new techniques and how to defend themselves. His humour and support made it a wonderful experience for my children. Not only did I achieve my goal of losing weight, but my self-esteem improved and my can-do attitude. I attribute all of these positive things to Marc’s excellent instruction and the rapport he builds with his students."
“Having Marc as our self-defense instructor was a great experience. As a parent, I was pleased with the physical progress and the change in my children’s confidence levels. The kids were getting physical activity while having fun, so I decided to join too. Marc is a great instructor with an abundance of knowledge and high energy. I was grateful for the encouragement, advice and guidance I was given, not only for myself but for my children too!”
