Reality Based Martial Arts Training & Self Defense Classes For Adults

Self Defense Eye Gouge From Ground - Self Defense Classes New AlbanyDynamic Self Defense classes are not like your typical martial arts program.

We don’t waste time with katas or forms that are interesting to watch but offer no value in a real conflict. We don’t teach you how to win in the ring or make it to the Olympics. We don’t practice ancient rituals.

We teach you how to survive a violent encounter through practical, reality based martial arts training and self defense classes for adults.

Even when attackers come in groups… When they have a knife or gun… When you are caught off guard and find yourself face down on the ground… When there are no rules and no other options.

Dynamic Self Defense classes teaches the most practical self-defense techniques from other martial arts systems through an integrated, proven, and most importantly – practical curriculum.

We don’t train star fighters.

We empower regular people to defend themselves in any situation.

Some of what our students learn…

  • The principles of defense.

How we got here…

Founded in 1998, Dynamic Self Defense is a uniquely modern and American mixed martial art that takes the most practical parts of other martial arts and combines them into a single and effective curriculum. Co-founder and current head of Dynamic Self-Defense, Master Robert Lowery took his extensive training in Judo, Jujitsu, Aikido, Tae Kwon-Do, Shotokan Karate and Choi Kwang-Do to create practical training programs for various law enforcement agencies, the FBI and military personnel, including army rangers.

Together, with other martial arts experts, Dynamic Self-Defense builds on a wealth of both technical and practical expertise. Unlike most traditional martial arts, nothing in Dynamic Self-Defense is locked in stone. Our curriculum continues to evolve as called for by different people and situations.

Self Defense Training With Gun To Head - Self Defense Classes New AlbanyWhat you learn in Dynamic Self Defense classes is effective. In fact the majority of the techniques taught are so effective that we have developed a unique training method similar to that used by elite military units to prevent injury. We don’t allow free sparring and don’t participate in tournaments because most of our techniques are not allowed–even in so called ‘no holds barred’ matches like UFC.

That said, Dynamic Self Defense is a family organization. Our mission is to make the world a safer place, build personal confidence and fitness through a series of natural, easy-to-learn movements designed to allow individuals of any age or size to realistically defend themselves in any situation.

Through our 100% self defense based curriculum, adults learn how to defend against real world attacks and common conflicts in a safe, friendly, family environment.

Dynamic Self Defense classes can save your life in more than one way! Learning self-defense is not just useful and fun, it’s also a great cross-training workout. We mix cardio with strength training as part of our weekly schedule. We also provide a workout for your brain… as you learn to adapt and react to any conceivable defense situation.

Dynamic Self Defense is Family OrientedOur self defense classes and training program works for people of all ages and levels of fitness because Dynamic Self-Defense is well… dynamic. Our focus is on empowering you in your everyday life. While fitness and strength is important in all martial arts, it’s less important in a self-defense situation. Learning the right techniques and by using the situation you’re in to your advantage, it’s possible for anyone to defend against a much larger attacker.
