Plano Self Defense Studio

Proudly serving the Dallas Metroplex, Plano Self Defense Studio is honored to be recognized throughout Texas and Internationally.  We teach the martial arts solely for defense and we convey an attitude of respect.  We encourage family participation and our programs build self confidence in both children and adults.

Our teaching method is based on a layering format; learning the individual pieces of each new technique and then putting them together. This format allows for skills and techniques to be attached to previously learned material.  

Combined with the private lessons, this method of teaching helps raise the students’ learning curve dramatically. In the private lesson the student receives direct instruction, which insures proper mastery of skills. This also eliminates peer pressure and strengthens the bond between the student and the teacher.
