  • Combat Self-Defense Academy

    (2 reviews)

    My interest is in what works and only what works. Being a small guy, what a lot of instructors teach doesn't work for me. Everything that I teach has been chosen to work for small people. They will also work for larger people, because they have more to bring to the table. Also what I teach is target based not technique based, so it is easy to learn and remember. I adapt my teaching to the student, rather than them having to adapt to me. I'm not stuck in the my art is relevant, because it worked 1000's of years ago mode. What I teach is developed for today's real-life situations. I enjoy being able to help people and watch them grow.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Clinch Martial Arts Academy

My children members need a program that teaches [not only] basic self-defense skills and strategies but also very good character development. My adult clients want practical real-world self-defense skills and physical fitness. All of our programs are separated by age, which allows us to create a curriculum that fits the specific needs of our students.

Chin Lee was running a Thai Kickboxing and Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program from another martial arts school which eventually went out of business. This then led Lee to open an academy to cater to his students who wanted to continuously improve their martial arts skills. Since their clients have different needs, they do not put the children and adults in the same classes.

I've been involved in martial arts my whole life. In fact, I was born into a martial arts family. I have always loved training and sharing the martial arts with people. My favorite aspect of teaching martial arts is witnessing the development and growth of my students.

According to Lee, customers will always be happy and satisfied if they are treated with respect and if they are provided with good practical martial arts or self-defense training. So if you are looking for an honest martial arts academy with a fair rate of services offered, consider one or more sessions with Chin Lee.

    David D.

    I took my 14 yr old daughter to her very first self-defense class and in a word "Outstanding!" The instruction she received was practical, effective and repeatable, which is exactly what you need. I would highly recommend this to any female 12+. You will come away knowing what you need to know to fend off any intruder who may be bigger and stronger. Be safe!!
