My son wanted some self defense skills that would be fun. He had been working with a trainer for strength and conditioning and Adam has been able to combine the 2 wonderfully. Very happy with our experience!

I was able to get my 13 yr old son on a detailed training plan and attainable food meal plan. Shaun has him working on core strength and agility. He plays high level select baseball and we're already noticing a stronger swing and more athleticism well playing defense. Since my son is so young I didn't feel comfortable making him lift weights and work out the same way I do. Since we've started he has more energy and enjoys the workouts tailored to him and his needs.

I was so impressed by Derrick my first session. He has so much knowledge to share. My friend referred me to him. I reached out for training in general fitness. He took the time to get to know my interests and body goals. He suggested yoga and martial arts. Working out and self-defense? Yes please! He is patient with coaching. I could tell he genuinely cared about helping me be a better me in the way that fit me best. I look forward to every session :)

    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. They’re 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.

    He is a excellent trainer, never rushes and always motivates me to try harder and do better. The knowledge he has is by far is a motivation in itself. I hope to be as good as him someday. With him as my teacher i see that day coming soon. Ty edwin

    I met with Sifu Derrick this past weekend for a one on one self-defense class. With examples he helped me broaden my mind to awareness (of both myself and my surroundings), counteractive maneuvers against an attacker (from how to make and throw a proper punch and/or kick that would make the most impact to showing me maneuvers to prevent an attacker from grabbing you in the first place.) and escape tactics. I highly recommend any single female out there to attend some kind of self-defense course. It enables you to walk away knowing that it is possible that you don’t have to be a victim. Thank you Thumbtack and thank you Sifu Derrick Kim Lewisville, TX

    Justin brings a level of excitement and professionalism to his style of teaching self-defense that is second to none. His classes assume that you can learn today what other classes may not teach you for a couple of years. Team members are immersed in a well-rounded program that emphasizes practical, every-day skills that can be put to use from day one.

    Kirk has the most knowledgeable tactical mind I've ever encountered. after years of training with military and civilian units, nothing ever really stuck or seemed as useful as what I've learned from Mr Taylor. He knows what he's talking about and has the skills to back it up. I've seen him in action in many different scenarios, and frankly, he is one guy I'd always want on my side.

    Being a personal trainer myself, I understand having to tailor programs for various people and always keeping motivated to provide the best service. Lance did all of that and more. Even though I was only able to train for a short time we covered so much and I learned valuable experiences that will allow me protect myself if needed. We covered... -Weightlifting -Cardio circuits -Strength -Self defense -Jiu jitsu (some ground work scenarios) -Kick boxing -Knowledge and Awareness If I come back into town, will definitely hire again!!

    I am taking voice and self-defense lessons, two things I have wanted to do for many years. Even though it's only been about 6 weeks, I'm stunned at how much we have accomplished! Alexander and Sarah are excellent teachers who are attuned to the student's need and level. I'm really enjoying the lessons.

    My first session went really well. I really appreciate the texts scheduling my first meeting and how well he was prepared. Overall, his patient, laid-back demeanor made it easy to relax and soak in what he was teaching.

      About

      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.
