Whether you are a beginner or an experienced martial artist, Texas Self Defense Center has a program to fit your needs.  Participation in our private and group lessons provides men, women, and children of all ages numerous physical and mental advantages.  

Benefits for Adults

The martial arts, a discipline, sport, art, and way of life, offers the adult student many unique benefits.  Whether you are  looking for a new hobby or exercise program to feel stronger and more energetic, the martial arts  offers all this and more.  Recent 

studies have shown that adults who exercise have lower blood pressure, increased muscular strength, better flexibility and less body fat than those adults who do not.  Adults who exercise can also cope with higher levels of stress and have a much more positive self image than those who do not.

Benefits for Children

At Texas Self Defense Center we work hard in order to ensure that your child's first experience with the martial arts is a safe and productive one.  Young people must have personal goals and a caring support system in order to make their dreams a reality.  

By arming your child with character, strong self-discipline, and a healthy self-image, we can help make your child a strong, able, and productive member of society.  Equipped with these positive attributes, your child will have the much needed inner strength that is necessary to avoid the many temptations children face today.

Strong people are the cornerstone of a strong society.  Your child's present as well as future success and happiness is very important to us.  We place a special emphasis on the mental attributes of concentration, patience and self-control as we explore the physical principles of balance and timing while perfecting martial arts techniques.

Now is the time for you and your child to use the positive physical and mental power of martial arts training in order to help achieve those goals which are important to you...
