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.

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 have to say, I get excited to go to class on Tuesday nights. At first, I was a little intimidated and unsure of myself. But now, I look forward to what I'll learn. I leave feeling more confident that I can defend myself, should I be put in that position. I think the most impressive thing I've learned is I have a lot of self defense moves with nothing in my hands if I have this knowledge in my head. I would recommend this class to anyone.
I took self defense lessons from him for about a year and it helped with my self confidence and took away a lot of fear I had about going out in public, especially evenings alone. He introduced me to moves that I dont think you can learn from anywhere else with the intention of self defense, and not karate, but actual self defense if someone grabbed you from behind. I was very impressed with the knowledge and the care he took to release my fears. I would recommend hum for any woman for self defense.

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.
