Our ultimate goal is to help you recognize danger, avoid danger, and defend yourself if necessary. Training at University of Sidekicks is an education, a lifestyle, and a family-bonding hobby.

We encourage you to visit our facility and meet Master Nolte and staff. Active military, law enforcement, firefighters, and EMTs receive a discount membership.

Master Nolte has a way of putting people at ease, but at the same time she let’s us know that she is a no nonsense type of person. The Krav Maga training I have received at Sidekicks has been anything but boring. I have yet to walk away from a class and say to myself, “What a waste of time that was.” I learn something new at every session. As a diabetic, the Krav class has helped tremendously in controlling my sugar levels. The medication just wasn’t enough to bring my sugar levels down to where they needed to be. I noticed, in a short amount of time, that the exercise I was receiving in class started to bring my sugar levels down, and now they are consistently right on the money. My wife made the comment the other night that I look and act like I am feeling much better. Krav Maga is a class that everyone can benefit from.

Renee Nolte is a GREAT Martial Artist and Instructor. I have trained with her for a couple of years now and have nothing but good things to say about her and her programs! She is hard working and dedicated to turning out good martial artist. Renee doesn’t give anything away…you earn what you get! I highly recommend Renee and the Krav Maga system to civilians and law enforcement alike. It is a excellent self defense system. You learn defensive skills and you get in shape! Both of which are necessary to survive in a Win Confrontation!
