C.O.B.R.A. is guaranteed to make any age, skill level or fitness level ready for confrontation and defense. THIS COURSE IS NOT ABOUT: learning MMA, how to kill someone or about weapons. It’s about going home at the end of the day, what it takes to survive and being mentally and physically capable in a dangerous situation. Want on site corporate training? Click Here

Combining experience in law enforcement, close quarter combat techniques, martial arts & the psychology of criminal intent, C.O.B.R.A.™ self-defense system is designed to be highly effective in real world situations where survival is on the line. Former street cop and and COBRA founder, Chris Sutton, wrote the book (literally) on the psychology of self-defense. This is a complete system covering both the mental and physical aspects of self-defense with a unique emphasis on scenario training.

We teach all ages from 8 – 70+ yrs old. This Academy is specifically for ages 13+. We have an ongoing kids program for ages 7-12 that involves kickboxing, MMA and self defense as well as special one day camps for kids of varying ages on the weekends.
