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.

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.

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 Have studied with Justin for over 2 years. In that time amongst the many things he has taught me are ; sun, yang, and old yang style tai chi, bagua, self defense, and chi kung. I really appreciate the detailed explanations he gives as to what is behind what he teaches and the way the energy works. He is a very experienced, dedicated, knowledgable, patient, and grounded teacher. I have seen various students come to him after years of training in karate, grasshopper, or kung fu for example, and in one session realize that they have much to learn. Justin is the real deal. Yet he meets you at whatever level you are at. I highly recommend him.

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.

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

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.
