I took yoga classes from Ken. He incorporated concentration and memory exercises into a well rounded, engaging, and appropriately rigorous hatha class. Ken demonstrated an in-depth knowledge of the poses and a creative approach to developing awareness, strength, and flexibility both at the physical and mental levels. I felt strongly that he was paying attention to and addressing my individual practice and development. He makes a valuable contribution to the yoga community. Om Shanti.

Sifu did a great job with the self defense class! I felt much more confident during the holiday shopping season. We had lots of practice with "hands-on " contact that was very realistic. I would highly recommend him.

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.
Services include Israeli krav maga, real-life self-defense, women's self-defense, cardio MMA, boot camps, personal training, kickboxing, wrestling, grappling, knife fighting, stick fighting, cane fighting, tactical shooting for civilians, LEOs, and military. Krav Maga is the most battle-proof self-defense in the world and at streets, and it helps people to protect themselves or their loved ones. It's more than just self-defense; it's motivating and exhausting. It will build up your cardio; you will lose weight; you will get stronger and build more power. You will learn to be capable to grow over your goals; that's why I call it the next level of fitness and self-defense. My philosophy: "Everybody is in need because you never know... So that one may walk in peace..."
