"Mr. Kress has conducted “Street Smart” seminars for our students the past two years with nothing but positive reviews. Ed takes you to the street with his common sense approach to avoiding trouble. His information is timely and up to date. He lets you know what the predators are looking for and how to avoid them. Ed's martial arts background also allows him to show the students simple techniques to keep people from invading their space. Ed is “Street Smart”.

"I've had the opportunity to work with Coach Kress in a school setting over the past 4 years. His program is incredibly effective and informative. The students really connect well with Coach Kress and like the way he approaches the training. Every year without fail, students rate Coach Kress' program as one of the best presentations of the school year. It is obvious to the staff that the positive response is due to the interactive and entertaining nature of his program and how well he relates to the students. Coach Kress' presentation is packed with important and timely information about how students can keep themselves safe in high school, college and beyond. He uses examples from the news about teens that put themselves in compromising positions to demonstrate the gravity and importance of self-awareness and safety. Students walk away from Coach Kress' program feeling more prepared and informed. I would highly recommend this program to any school that is dedicated to the safety of their students."
