    She-Bang! Handgun Training

    (11 reviews)

    I love to teach women how to be safe and confident. Your brain is you most powerful tool and we can teach you to avoid danger and listen to your instincts. I can teach a woman to be comfortable with a firearm, in about an hour. It is all in how I approach the subject and work with each student on their own level. Taking someone from being afraid, to being confident.

    Kung Fu USA N Texas

    (3 reviews)

    We teach a system of 8-step preying mantis kung fu, tai chi, and qigong. Keeping a balance is harder these days; keeping good nutrition habits and doing core body strength exercises as a lifestyle for health maintenance is easier if you are part of a fun program. We help you reach your goals. It's fun and challenging to learn kung fu and self-defense. I provide a private service as well "KungFu2You" at your home.

    Impact Combatives

    Our system can be learned much faster as it uses your natural flinch response to invoke cover mechanics. The light bulb moment that students get when they realize that this system is super effective and easy to learn.

  • Innovative Fitness, LLC

    (16 reviews)

    Experience first and foremost. Over the last 28+ years I've made many mistakes but thank God I have learned from all of them. Now I can teach my clients how to avoid those same fitness mistakes and achieve the results they are looking for in a much, much shorter period of time. I've had many a client tell me that they have had trainers before, but never felt their muscles being worked and trained the way that I show them.This has to do with engaging and triggering as much muscle fiber as possible during your training sessions. This creates an almost immediate positive response from the body. Working in this industry is all I've ever done, and there is nothing I would rather do then work in the health and wellness field. Now that I have been studying to be an N.D. (Naturopathic Doctor) for the past 8 years, these studies have helped my clients achieve positive results from certain nutrition protocols I have placed them on so as to unlock their genetic potential that is inside them. This mostly deals with insulin/glucose metabolism. The energy, the changing of peoples lives etc... it's incredibly motivating to watch people implement your teaching and training protocols and see the results that follow, I think us as trainers get more excited sometimes that even our clients who are achieving the results they have so desperately seeked for such a long time in many cases.

  • Sword Fist Health

    (10 reviews)

    Personal training: I have a multi-disciplinary approach, drawing from the styles, traditions and techniques of my own experience and those of my teachers. These include my certification as a yoga and tai chi instructor, military training and conditioning, MMA/fighter conditioning, traditional martial arts training, HIIT, and bodybuilding. I also like to employ a holistic approach to fitness, incorporating diet and lifestyle in order to yield better results and prevent injury. Martial arts: I have a broad background in s variety of styles, and an o.k. depth understanding of the human body uncommon ful most teachers. Even if I have never trained in the style you are looking to improve, I know how to correct form and techniques to generate maximum efficiency, speed, and power. I Also know how to condition the specific muscles necessary to not only execute the technique, but to do so without causing long term damage to your joints. Yoga: I am 1000 hour hatha yoga certified through Naropa university, the only institution with a bachelor's degree program in yoga teacher training. This means that out of the gate I am equipped with a more comprehensive and developed knowledge than most teachers in America today. And I have access to the knowledge and experience of my teachers, who are themselves experts in this field. I love helping people strive for perfection and watching them grow. I won't lie, I also love encouraging my students and clients to push their perceived limits, and the satisfaction of seeing them break down those boundaries and roadblocks to achieve something greater.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Dallas Kajukembo

(2 reviews)

I give people the tools necessary to protect themselves. I give them the proper instruction and environment in which to practice. Though workouts are inherently physical due to the nature of the art, my students have a better understanding of what true self-defense is.

Jeff Grant of Dallas Kajukembo has been helping people protect themselves by teaching Kajukembo and other self-defense techniques. He has a good mixture of clients, where some have taken other arts in the past and others never had any prior instruction. Helping students through giving great instruction, great art, and special attention to details, creates a great martial artist and ensures customer satisfaction.

One of the highlights of my martial arts career was giving a demonstration at the Martial Arts Hall of Fame. Another of my favorites is when I am asked to share my knowledge or skill to others outside or even inside of my art.

If you want to learn self-defense and martial arts training with an effective trainer and a school with a good environment for training and learning, try Dallas Kajukembo.
