I would like to thank you for visiting Self Defense America in Mesquite!
We are committed to providing the best self defense training available,
in a professional and family oriented environment.
Self Defense America cares and takes great pride in offering you
the highest quality of Self Defense training. We will not waste
your time teaching material that you cannot even use, such as "Weapons"
that you are not even allowed to carry, and so forth.
Self Defense America is not a "Tournament" school, nor
a "Black Belt" factory interested more in cranking out
large quantities of Black Belts rather than devoting attention to
quality training on an individual basis.
Our facility offers two forms of Martial Arts - Combat
Hapkido and Taekwondo.
We also offer International Police Defense
Our Cardio/Circuit Kickboxing classes
are a great cardio workout!
"It's a kick-butt, sweat pouring, bag slamming, aggression
releasing, power punching workout for the "bored with the spa
scene" for the raging kickboxer deep inside us all!
Cardio/Circuit kickboxing is the fitness
sensation that swept the nation. It was rated by Muscle and Fitness
Magazine as the #1 calorie burning workout, an unbelievable 634
calories per 1/2 hour! Cardio/Circuit Kickboxing (as taught at Self
Defense America takes the music energy and excitement of aerobics
and adds important self-defense techniques like jabbing, kicking,
and punching that may one day save your life. All of our motions
have a martial arts root.
Many people join martial arts with the goal in mind of having a
black belt. However, a black belt is not simply black material tied
around your waist. A Black Belt earned is a sign of dedication and
It is not merely a sign of physical ability, but also one of commitment
We are here to help you achieve the goals you have set for your
future in Martial Arts.
