Proudly serving the Dallas Metroplex, Plano Self-Defense 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 currently train adults, ages 16 and older, in a small semi-private group environment with additional private lessons geared to meet each individual students needs.
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.
What Do We Teach?
The word Kenpo is derived from the Chinese "quan" (拳) which can mean "curled hand", "fist", or "boxing", and "fa" (法) which means law, or method. Jutsu (術) can be translated as technique, skill, or science. "Fist Law Science" is an appropriate translation for Kenpo at Plano Self-Defense. We even refer to the head of our system often as "Professor."
House of Five Methods Martial Arts is best described as Hawaiian-Chinese Kenpo. The five major areas, or methods, of self-defense taught are: striking, seizing, pressure points, weapons, and wellness.
We provide separate class times for those interested only in training in Pambuan Arnis using single/double stick, knife, and flexible weapons.
Pambuan Arnis is a Classical Arnis System from Santa Cruz, Laguna, Philippines. Ama Guro Raffy Pambuan inherited his family's system of Arnis from his father Lolo Guro Isidro Pambuan.
