Welcome to The Best Martial Arts Lessons in Copperas Cove

Hi, my name is Grand Master Jimmy,

and I’m very PROUD that hundreds of families all over the Copperas Cove area are singing the praises of our programs and telling their friends and neighbors how much of a positive impact it’s having on their lives.

Self Defense America has become a landmark of Copperas Cove martial arts!
Get started now and find out how you can be healthier, happier and more confident with Self Defense America training!
Our members tell us that they feel our school is more of an institution of self-improvement, physically and mentally, rather than “just” a gym or some “activity”.
I pride myself on helping our adult members safely build muscle, quickly burn fat, gain flexibility and release stress in a FUN, positive and injury free environment! And for the children, parents all over the Copperas Cove area give my martial arts classes credit for increasing their child’s ability to focus, building their self-esteem and igniting a passion for self improvement they never would have expected.
Although many people think the martial arts are just about fighting, the truth is that the physical “kicking and punching” are really just the “tools” that I use to teach the more important, and MUCH more valuable lessons about “yourself”.
When you train in our Copperas Cove martial arts program (which also serves Killeen, Harker Heights, Topsey, Fort Hood, Kempner), you take advantage of the best self-improvement system in the world.
Through the practice of physical self-defense skills, you will follow a blueprint for a successful life based on discipline, focus, and perseverance. Please, take a few moments to browse this website, get familiar with us, then, take me up on my “No Strings Attached” offer, and see the benefits of my Copperas Cove martial arts program for yourself!
Give me a call at: (254)518-5425 Or click the program (above) that you’re most interested in!
I sincerely look forward to meeting you, and helping you and your family accomplish your goals!
