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 have been a long time client of Derrick's, and he has provided me with fitness, martial arts and self-defense that is top notch! He is both very encouraging and tough. He will definitely push you to the next level of your training! Derrick is very good at explaining things in a way I can understand and modifying exercises when I have physical limitations. He is very knowledgeable and versatile so our sessions are always different and tons of fun!

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.

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.

I don't want to view this as a business. I want to view this as just a way of me giving back by helping others accomplish whatever self-defense or fitness goals that they have. Therefore, I cannot put a price on it. Instead, I am just accepting donations. It's not required tho. Although donations are NOT required, they are VERY MUCH appreciated! Thank you!

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.

About

Our main focus is on self defense. We won't waste your time, teaching you things like weapons and so forth that you can not even carry with you on the street. Learn how to escape from someone who has you on the ground, not make them "tap out". There is no "tap out" on the street. Weapon disarming, pressure point application, balance disruption, joint locks, and take downs are examples of what we do. If you're looking for trophies and medals, that's not us. We care about your family's safety.
