About Us

Plano Self Defense has an exceptional teaching staff. We teach the Traditional Applied Martial Art (TAMA) styles of Go Hou Kan kenpo-jutsu and Pambuan Arnis. 

We do not just teach the movement of the art, but how to use martial art movements in multiple ways, and how to apply these in self defense situations.  Our instructors have been coached, mentored and taught by some of the most knowledgeable, esteemed, martial art masters and grandmasters in the world.  

We are more like extended family because of our student ratio and teaching style.  Our programs are all-inclusive - we do not, and will not, nickel and dime our students with hidden costs.
