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.

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.
I teach a mixed martial arts-based style of self-defense. I also provide home safety assessments and training. The emphasis is on realistic situations, not sporting events or complex "form based" techniques. My goal is to provide students with effective proven techniques that will increase skill and confidence, as well as build the proper "mindset" needed to keep themselves safe. I have a passion for what I teach and have taught classes for women, couples, teenagers, families as well as "self-defense" boot camps. The only requirement to participate is a desire to learn; no prior experience or skill is necessary.

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..."
