I started taking ACWA self-defense classes not knowing what to expect. The team has an extensive knowledge of self-defense and the ability to help you gain confidence to use the techniques in real life situations. The interactive classes develop a sense of awareness of your surroundings and provide common sense concepts and functional defense based on easy, natural movements, not complicated techniques that require years to learn and execute properly. I have been able to build confidence as they have provided a toolbox to build from moving forward. I started in a class with beginners mixed in with more experienced students and never felt uncomfortable due to their ability to keep everybody engaged. Theyâre great at instructing to match individual students' level of experience and providing feedback without being critical. Learning self-defense at ACWA has been a great experience and I look forward to working with them through more extensive levels of instruction.
Justin brings a level of excitement and professionalism to his style of teaching self-defense that is second to none.

Team members are immersed in a well-rounded program that emphasizes practical, every-day skills that can be put to use from day one.

Systema is one of the best self-defense martial arts with classes in Dallas. You will have a chance to learn the most comprehensive and unique martial art Russian special forces use to defend themselves in hand-to-hand combat and against weapons. As the matter of fact, Systema is so effective and damaging to your opponent that for over 70 years, it was taught only to few in elite force and considered a top Soviet military secrete. It combines a strong spirit with creative, intelligent and versatile fighting tactics. Natural and free of structure, the system allows practitioners to readily adjust to virtually any circumstance. The system stresses a realistic approach to self-defense, recognizing that real conflicts bear no resemblance to what occurs in the comfort of a training facility. Techniques are based on the natural movement of the body rather than a prearranged pattern of moves, such as a karate kata. Students act on instinct, rather than memory, when responding to an attack. All Spetsnaz soldiers learn Systema, a Russian martial art many experts consider to be the best technique for knife defense of fighting multiple opponents, essentially the most complete way to defend yourself, maim and kill. Systema is the most effective self-defense you find.

I teach a mixed martial arts-based style of self-defense. I also provide home safety assessments and training. The emphasis is on realistic situations, not sporting events or complex "form based" techniques. My goal is to provide students with effective proven techniques that will increase skill and confidence, as well as build the proper "mindset" needed to keep themselves safe. I have a passion for what I teach and have taught classes for women, couples, teenagers, families as well as "self-defense" boot camps.
