The Martial Art I teach, called Chien Neng, is the foundation of Urban Defense Training - UDT. UDT is specifically designed for actual “real world” self defense and hand to hand combat. High percentage skills and techniques that work in high-stress situations. In fact, it’s so practical and effective that I have the honor of teaching this program to Police officers and special team memebers of SWAT/ERT/SRT, along with military personnel throughout Texas. UDT travels the state teaching classes in our specialty subjects; fitness, fighting and first-aid, to law enforcement, fire service and military teams. I’m also the former fitness, first-aid and defensive tactics instructor for Charlie Mike Enterprises which provided specialized training to SWAT teams in Texas and across the country. I held the position of fitness coordinator/instructor for Cedar Valley Law Enforcement Academy for 3 years under Commander Boyd Norton.
Other than law enforcement, I teach men and women, boys and girls – but not under the age of 15 years old. This is a mixed skill fighting system that specializes in close quarter combat and the use of everyday items as weapons of self defense. We also train with knives, bottles, sticks (eskrima) and handguns as well as ground skills. This is as real as it gets without actually going into battle. Solid physical conditioning is also a big part of our training.
I have four decades of Martial Arts training, hold Black Belt degrees in two styles of Karate and am the founder of Chien Neng and Urban Defense Training Martial Art. I am a former full contact competitive kickboxer/karate fighter and a certified boxing coach under USA Boxing, the governing body for Olympic Boxing.
Classes are Tuesday nights at 6p at the T. Boone Pickens YMCA in downtown Dallas, 601 N. Akard St. 214-954-0500. Classes are free with your membership.
I also teach the best self-defense class of its kind. My program will take “unpractised” knowledge and reflexes you already have, and develop it into a very natural and quick method of self protection. Our philosophy … KNOWING WHAT TO DO MAKES YOU AWARE, PRACTICING WHAT TO DO MAKES YOU PREPARED.
