Something for everyone
Catch Wrestling had (and still has) a reputation as a very aggressive form of grappling, particularly when compared to other styles. The term “No Holds Barred” actually originated with Catch Wrestling, as there are no illegal submissions, holds, pins, or take-downs.
TDA Combatives (DX) is a street-oriented self-defense program designed with multiple opponents in mind. Utilizing continuous motion as its basis, the program teaches you to maintain 360° awareness and employ your body’s natural weapons while maintaining a constant state of protective cover.
KALI KIDS & SELF DEFENSE
We utilize real techniques to stop and de-escalate conflicts as an initial means of defense. To this, we add the understanding of nonviolent postures and the preservation of personal boundaries.
FILIPINO MARTIAL ARTS
Pekiti-Tirsia Kali is the most complete, advanced, and effective system of Filipino Martial Arts in existence today. Pekiti-Tirsia is an accurate combat blade fighting system that employs all-edged and impact weaponry, empty-hands combat, and integrates seamlessly with modern firearms.

I would give this place 6 stars if I could! Hands down, this school is amazing! The instructors are all wonderful and incredibly knowledgeable! The other students quickly become friends; from day one I felt welcomed! The vast amount of knowledge at this school is mind blowing (which is often how my brain feels at...
I’m a practitioner under the PTK-SMF/ Filipino Martial Arts and DX programs and I’ve been so impressed with the dedication and experience Edwin imparts on me and his students. Both of these programs will get you thinking and moving on your feet very quickly (from the very first class), and you will have immediate validation....
You won’t find a school where the instructors are more knowledgeable or care more about each student. They make the information understandable and fun, and are always willing to go the extra mile to ensure each person is best able to defend themselves. I’ve been attending Ballistic 3 and CSW for about 8 months and...
I came to TDA and the 1st PTK-SMF class as a guy in his mid-40’s, with no prior martial arts experience, and left-handed, (PTK-SMF works both side/hands, though it’s primarily taught right-handed). Edwin and Michael do a phenomenal job of instructing this very technical and devastatingly effective combat martial art. There are no inflated egos...
I’ve been going to TDA for almost a year now and it’s been great! I had always wanted to join a self defense class but have always struggled to find a place that cared about people as individuals or charged an arm and a leg. Edwin was on the phone with me for almost an...
I have been training at the Texas Defense Academy for about a year and a half, now. I was initially drawn to the Combat Submission Wrestling (CSW) program, as they are the only affiliate school in the DFW area. My former school had closed, and I was looking for a new place to train and...
