Billy Blanks Jr. had Paula Abdul as a mentor, is a self-taught accomplished dancer and entertainer, his parents are famous for creating one of our favorite workouts from the 90s, Tae Bo, and he was recently appointed the role of Artistic Director of the Wall Street Theater in Norwalk!

We caught up with Billy for a private Dance It Out® (DIO) session – his own fitness-based dance program that you may have seen when he picked up a deal on Shark Tank. You may have also caught DIO® on Dr. Oz, Ellen, the Meredith Vieira Show, The View, ABC, NBC, FOX, The Hallmark Channel, So You Think You Can Dance, and now….Unlocking Fairfield!

Because you never know when you might find yourself in a situation that requires some element of self-defense, we decided to visit Karina Gramesty and Kailen Pirro, owners of Dojo Fairfield, to receive some C.O.B.R.A training (Combat Objective Battle Ready Applications).

Today’s post is dedicated to passing on all of the valuable lessons we learned, and hope that none of us ever have to use it. Knowledge is empowerment!
