Piroska has a gift for relating to people no matter what level of physical fitness or martial arts experience they have. Her instruction style is fun, informative and effective. She has a strong and substantial martial arts knowledge base that she is able to translate into an easy program for participants of all ages. I’ve worked with her for years at Close Quarter Academy and would work with her again if given the opportunity.

I am pleased to say that having Piroska as my mentor was one of the most amazing experiences in my education. She helped me realize what my true passion was within the nursing profession (Labour and Delivery) and was able to coach me and give me advice on how to get where I wanted to be. I am sure that any person that has the chance to work with, learn from and be mentored by this passionate teacher/mentor will have a great learning experience that will open their eyes to new possibilities and knowledge.

One of my most outstanding experience during my clinical placements as a student was under Piroska Bata as my clinical instructor. She was a passionate instructor, vibrant and current with nursing knowledge and ever ready to answer questions from her students and fellow nurses. I truly experienced what holistic care meant in nursing with her. I am delighted to say if the opportunity ever arises again for me to work with Piroska Bata, I will jump at it!
