About Us

Our Academy

My name is Brandon Lambert and I have been studying the martial arts for over 16 years. I have had the opportunity to train under some amazing instructors that have given me the tools to teach students how to prepare themselves for self defense situations. The goal of starting this academy was to educate clients on understanding the elements of self defense.Through my experience most martial arts/self defense locations teach specific styles for different reasons; sport, discipline, tradition, theatrical, and many more. In seeing this I sought out to find a more well-rounded self-defense system. My mission is to give people the knowledge and understanding of what self defense training should consist of. To give principles for self protection, developing skills for situational awareness, and learning body mechanics that create results against the assailant. What is Self-Defense? Self-defense is defined: the use of reasonable force to protect oneself from bodily harm from the attack of an assailant, if the defender has reason to believe he/she is in danger. Pure Self Defense Academy is the definition of self defense!!


Our goal is to teach kids street smarts, awareness, and develop their character. Our adult program is creating an environment that is safe and friendly.  Teaching assertiveness, empowering each individual with the knowledge, and confidence to face anything in life.  It is time to start training now!

Be strong. Be Courageous. Stand Firm

Finally, Be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His Might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm aganist the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the FULL ARMOR of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to STAND FIRM. Stand firm therefore, having girded your lions with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; in addition to all, taking up the SHIELD of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the HELMET of salvation, and the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God. With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints, and pray on my behalf, that utterance may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in proclaiming it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

am I too old?

 You are never too old to defend yourself.  We work with students of all ages and conditions. We are able to modify anything to make sure that you progress, and feel confident in your ability. Plus, as we get older we should never stop moving and most importantly never stop learning. 

Do I need Experience?

No experience needed. We will teach you all you need to know. We start with understanding the fundamentals, then work into the principles and concepts, and finally teach you how to create amazing reflex reactions to most situations. 

What Style of martial arts is taught?

We teach self-defense. Self-Defense is not a style. We try not to focus on any specific style. Why? Styles limit your thinking and open-mindedness to all other types of martial arts. This day and age it is important to become well-rounded, and know how to adapt to all situations. 

Are most people nervous to start?

Yes! Why? No one ever wants to look silly starting something new but you have to start from somewhere. Also, no know wants to get injured and that is why we always make sure that safety is our 1st priority. Lastly, we might be a little intimidated because we don’t know what to expect, but rest asure that we will be extremely inviting and happy to see you in class! 

What should I wear to my 1st class?

We ask that you wear attire that is modest but comfortable. T-shirt, tank top, sweatshirt, shorts to the knee, leggings, “Gi” pants, and/or sweat pants. We are usually barefoot but we have footwear options. 

What should I Expect for my 1st class?

You will be introduced to the instructors and students. We want you to feel safe and of course enjoy yourself!

Do you work around pre-existing injuries?

Yes. You can still be attacked if you have an injury. Actually, you are more prone to being attacked because you are more vulnerable. We can teach people with all conditions to feel more secure and confident in their ability.
