We just love Absolute Self Defense! Both coach Brittany and coach Jeff are AMAZING with young kids. My 4 and 6 year old are always so excited for class. The coaches make new members feel welcomed and included. Their knowledge and willingness to work with each kid on their own level is beyond compare. Even with the multiple options in the area ASD comes out as the number one place to take classes!!!

This is a great place to learn BJJ. Came in here knowing absolutely nothing about BJJ, and a year later I’m still here and loving every minute of it. This gym is friendly and welcoming to people of all ages and abilities. Coach Britt, Coach Teddy, and Coach Jeff are wonderful instructors. They’re knowledgeable, detailed and always makes each class a great experience. My ohana and I are fortunate to be able to train here 🤙🏽

I have been in the military for a little over 20 years which means we have lived in several different places. With that, we have been introduced to different businesses that we have either loved or hated. Absolute Self Defense has definitely been placed on our list of loved places. We have tried a couple other Self Defense academies in this area and they can not compare to Absolute. While they do run the Academy in a professional way, they still tailor to each individual student in a family oriented way. They have personally built up my son's self-esteem by boosting his strengths and minimized his weaknesses. Sincerely, Cobra Kai 🐍

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!
