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 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 :)
Brian is an excellent instructor and is able to help any skill level. I would recommend Brian to anyone wanting to learn self defense.
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.
Patrick is a great instructor. He is very knowledgeable about self defense and is very patient with his students.
Mr Bull Has been an outstanding Instructor, Coach and mentor during the course of my workouts in his TACTIX classes. My personal goals are being met and every class is a challenge, and with his personal drive it helps me strives to success.
The BEST trainer! Christian is a true professional in all aspects: dependable, motivational, inspirational, and a great person. He is always working to be on top of all that is both proven and new with nutrition and training. Christian clearly puts his heart and strong drive into helping his clients grow, reach, and surpass goals, all while making their journey both challenging and rewarding.
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 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. Theyâre 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.
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 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!

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.
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.
