Always Bev is proud to announce that Isaac Payne has been added to the staff as a consultant. It is planned for Payne to share his expertise in self defense practices and to integrate the physical technic training to the Always Bev program.
“Isaac's knowledge of situational awareness and his expertise in martial arts makes him an exceptional addition to Always Bev,” commented, founder Barb Jordan. “Although our goal is ultimately for our clients to avoid crimes of opportunity, we know that is not always possible, and it is vital in the instances of unavoidable confrontation, that people are properly prepared. Isaac will help ensure that.”
A veteran of the U.S. Air Force, Payne has spent over sixteen years in law enforcement, with a current rank as Sergeant. During this time he has gained training and experience in crisis communication and de-escalation.
Payne also is a martial artist who works with people of all skill levels to help them learn how to best defend themselves. He has spent years training in various martial arts including Muay Thai, Jiu Jitsu, and Krav Maga. He is a certified instructor with the United States Krav Maga Association and the Rigan Machado Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Association. Isaac holds a Bachelor of Science in Communication from Brigham Young University-Idaho.Always Bev announces the addition of Stacy Lim as a staff consultant.
Lim, now retired, served the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) for thirty years, and ultimately specialized in officer training with the rank of Sergeant II. As a consultant, Lim will work with Always Bev owner, Barb Jordan, providing skilled and experienced expert advice on key safety tips and techniques, to be highlighted in Always Bev seminars and training classes.
“I am so proud of Stacy and what she overcame after being targeted by gang members in her early law enforcement years,” commented Barb Jordan. “Having the strength and commitment to overcome such tragedy and violence, and be able to put her energy into having such a prolific career with LAPD truly describes Stacy to her core. She has always been a woman with the highest standards of integrity and a natural ability to look out for the well being of others. Always Bev is fortunate to be able to share Stacy’s knowledge acquired from her years serving the community of Los Angeles as a decorated member of the LAPD.”
Although Lim and Jordan were teammates and NCAA National Champions at Cal State University Northridge (CSUN), it wasn’t until she attended a fundraising dinner at CSUN when Lim became aware of Jordan’s plight to honor her late sister Beverly, through teaching personal safety and vigilance. While at the dinner, Lim heard college students sharing their most impactful happenings of the academic year, one of which was attending an Always Bev seminar, led by Jordan. Lim responded with enthusiasm in learning of the safety platform.
Lim’s motto “Prepare your mind, for where the body may have to go,” fits in perfectly with Always Bev’s mission and Jordan’s passion to help others stay safe by stressing awareness in their daily routines, sharpening decision making skills, and introducing specific actions to take if ever vulnerable or physically threatened.
