The coaches are amazing with my autistic son. Super patient, very helpful and well organized. This school teaches my child everything he will need to defend himself and learn a sense of discipline as well. Coach Britt is very knowledgeable in her craft. Although our family had to PCS, we know we will always have a family at absolute academy!! 10/10

Great coach and great experience. My son has been going for 2y and he has improved on his self confidence so much. And is learning the value of hard work. Belts are not just given, to make the gym look good, they are earned. A great family environment, we all support one another and have become a big family with open arms to anyone that comes in.

Who we are.

Absolute Self Defense Academy's mission is to provide students with the highest level of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu & self defense training possible, by providing our students with a safe, friendly and clean environment and friendly, ego-free training that promotes improvement, mutual learning and accomplishment. Our goal with each student is to provide a "personal training feel" in a group class setting. So, we strive to make you feel comfortable and confident from the very first day. We won't just throw you into a group class to let you sink or swim - instead, we'll be right there with you providing one-on-one coaching in every single class.    

People have always asked me the backstory of our gym, Everyone knows Jiu jitsu is a lifestyle, well for me it’s in my blood. I began coaching after receiving my blue belt under my dad, Jim Mahan at his harker heights location. Fast forward years of coaching and I begin my own gym, located in the one place all great Jiu jitsu gyms come from (or so I’ve been told), my garage. Slowly our gym family grew and after a few moves, finally in January 2018, We were proud to find a location to suit our needs and make it our own (and not to mention Air conditioning) in Copperas Cove. As we continue to grow our gym family, we never lose our sense of where we’ve come from and leaving amazing memories as we go. where our story continues to take us & we will be ready for anything!
