Why would you encourage someone to choose the programs Switch Flipper offers over other HRDF certified training providers?
The main reason that brought Switch Flipper to life is the motivation to identify individual’s potential and breaks individual’s mindset barriers before equipping them with quality training programs that develops certain skillset. We believe that a person’s cup needs to be emptied before it is able to fill up with clean water.

We also will meet up with companies to understand their current situation and employees needs, so that we can customize corporate training programs based on their current needs and situation.
What is your company belief system?
Our company’s belief system lies in the fact that every possibility begins with a thought. Each individual’s achievements are first determined by their thought or mindset, then follow by physical action. The mind functions are like a switch and there are trigger points that activate our dreams, creativity, and hidden skillsets. One of the most influential quotes taken from Bruce Lee is “If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them”. With this belief system, we have developed and created numerous movements & influence in the society especially in the areas of business, training programs, and women self-defense community.
