Realistic Self Defense and Martial Arts

Alive knife fighting from a hold up

Fort Worth Combatives is a martial arts and firearms training school serving Fort Worth Texas and the surrounding areas that focuses on realistic self defense. What separates us from the rest is that we have integrated the very best of traditional martial arts, along with military combatives and weapon training with a realistic context driven methodology that builds self defense skills fast.

In addition to our self defense and martial arts programs, we also offer many firearms related courses, seminars and events. Such as Texas License to Carry (previously known as CHL), NRA Pistol, NRA Rifle, and NRA Shotgun courses along with more advanced Defensive Firearms classes. We are also a Emergency Care and Safety Institute (ESCI) First Aid, CPR, AED and Trauma certified school.
