Welcome to the Academy! We are an independent branch of the A.C.W.A. located in Independence MO. We are pleased to be able to offer you reality based self defense solutions that work for both men and women, anywhere!

You can expect the following when training with us:

  • It's For Everyone
  • Both men and women love what we have to offer here. They know they live in unpredicatable times and do not want to rely on others to keep them safe. Daily we see more and more people taking charge of their personal safety!

  • Real Solutions
  • What we teach is not a sport, very far from it in fact. We have no interest in scoring points or in competitions. What we ARE interested in is getting you and your loved ones home safe at night. To do that we concentrate on real solutions that work in the real world for normal people just like you.

  • Be Safe Now
  • We realize you do not have 10 years to learn to be safe, you need solutions NOW! Because of that, this program is exactly for you! A.C.W.A. Combatives is designed to give you the most efficient solutions in the smallest amount of time.

  • Safety is #1
  • Our number one priority is to get you and your loved ones home safe. It's as simple as that.

  • Prepared for anything
  • You never know what the world might throw at you, so we train our students in a wide variety of solutions. Verbal conflict de-escallation, standing & ground solutions, confined spaces, multiple attackers, weapons use and disarms are just a few things you will experience here.

  • Join The Family
  • If your looking for a home away from home that you can feel like your part of something special, then your in the right place. We take great pride in providing a unique enviroment, free of EGOs, that is conducive to learning.
