Debbie Baxter Robison believes the fact that education on personal safety often falls on the bottom of the priority list for our busy lives.
Debbie has made it her mission to educate as many as possible using simple techniques that may make a difference in their safe return home.
Debbie started training in Bujinkan Ninjutsu (Japan's oldest martial art) in 1988, she earned her 1st degree Black Belt in 1994, and her 2nd degree in 1996. Debbie was also the Vice President of Bujinkan Columbus Dojo in Columbus, Ga from 1989 to 1997.
Debbie noticed that there were a lot of people that were not training at all, so she developed Basic Self Defense classes and courses for the general public that are still taught to this day.
Debbie closed the martial arts school and no longer offers martial arts classes.
Debbie then founded "Family Self Defense Seminars" in 1998 (Columbus, Ga) then changed the company to "Thorn of the Rose Self Defense" in 2008 (Montgomery, Al., Greensboro, NC and now in Columbus, Ga).
Debbie has developed self defense classes, courses and seminars that cover many different areas including hand to hand self defense, as well as how to defend against or use weapons, outdoor survival, and her best forte' the non physical, such as dealing with bullies or domestic violence.
Debbie's husband Jerry had a job change, so they were able to come back home to her hometown of Columbus, Ga,, and lease another brick and mortar location after teaching in venues such as for Columbus State University, Columbus Ga., Armory Learning Arts Center, Montgomery, AL and both Maxwell and Gunter Air Force bases Montgomery, AL where she held contracts with he military.
Debbie is thrilled to be home, and seeing her students from the 1990's has been especially wonderful. Students from her other out of town locations are starting to visit which gives them an opportunity to meet old and new students of the school. This group has formed the "Thorn of the Rose Self Defense Group" on facebook.
Classes are offered at 5870 Veterans Parkway, suite I Columbus, Ga. 334-669-ROSE (7673)
Debbie is a Christian, wife, mother and grandmother to her family, and a very proud instructor/friend to her students....all of them from 1989 until today, and looking forward to meeting you and yours as new students who want to learn to proctect yourselves and come home to the ones you love.
REMEMBER "YOU HAVE A CHOICE!"
