about harry glick

Harry Glick was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1949. He began his martial arts training in 1967. He is retired from private legal practice.

Unknown to many of his former clients and colleagues, Harry has more than forty (40) years of hardcore martial arts experience.

There is no doubt our world has changed forever. With this in mind, Harry designed his own personal safety program for the benefit of women and persons with special needs. Age, size, physical condition or lack of previous martial arts training are not prerequisites to success. More importantly, participants have expressed to Harry that they feel better about themselves and have developed overall confidence in their new abilities. This has additionally given them overall confidence in many other areas of life.

Harry had the pleasure of conducting personal self-defense seminars for the Nassau County Women's Bar Association, Business and Professional Women's Club of Nassau County, Pathways Women's Health Center of Long Island, Gerontology Professionals of Long Island, The New York State Bar Association Elder Law Toronto Meeting and the Independent Business Women's Circle.

Harry has also produced five (5) highly acclaimed Personal Safety Videotapes.

Over the years, Harry has had the pleasure of training with jiu-jitsu experts Royce, Rorion, Rickson, Relson, Royler and Renzo Gracie, Wally Jay, Robert Hansen, Walt Bayless and Nobo Higashi, Kickboxing champions Benny "The Jet" Uriquedez and Bill "Superfoot" Wallace; Nin-jitsu masters Shoto Tanemura and Steven Hayes; Philippine masters Mat Marinas, Spencer Gee, Remy Preses, and Bo Sayoc; Jeet Kon Do experts Paul Vunak, Danny Inosanto and James DeMille; Tae Kwon Do Master S. Henry Cho; Judo expert Hank Kraft and Russian Martial expert Vladimir Vasilyev.  Harry has studied extensively the works of: Matt Furey, Tony Cecchine, Michael Janich, Joseph Simonet, Bob Orlando, James Keating, Moni Aizik, Tim Larkin, and Carl Sisteri.

Our Leaders

a personal reminder to all of my instructors

HEALTHY.

HAPPY.

INDEPENDENT.

SELF SUFFICIENT.

STRONG.

THE TECHNIQUE MIGHT NOT WORK BUT THE PRINCIPLE WILL.

HOW YOU TRAIN IS HOW YOU FIGHT.

YOU MUST TEACH THE STUDENT WHO KNOWS NOTHING, THINKS HE KNOWS SOMETHING, SAYS HE KNOWS EVERYTHING.

EVERYTHING IN LIFE IS TIMING.

DON’T APPLAUD WHAT YOU KNOW, LEARN WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW.

KEEP A LOW PROFILE, LEAVE YOUR EGO AT HOME.

TIME IS SO PRECIOUS, DON'T WASTE IT.

ALWAYS PUT THE ATTACKER IN PAIN AND IN AN UNNATURAL POSITION.

YOU SHOULD ALWAYS BE A STUDENT.

YOU WILL LEARN THE MOST ABOUT SELF DEFENSE FROM YOUR STUDENTS.

TIME ON THE MAT.

ATTAINING A BLACK BELT IS IRRELEVANT, IT IS THE BEGINNING OF A LONG JOURNEY.

YOU DON’T REALLY START LEARNING SELF DEFENSE UNTIL YOU HAVE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF TEACHING A STUDENT.
