The DentonMAC Difference

    The Denton Martial Arts Center focuses on the cultivation of a better person in all aspects mind, body, and spirit. Through dedicated practice of the arts offered at our facility, the sincere student will grow into the fullest, best version of themselves. The teachers are concerned with keeping the traditions and integrity of their respective arts, but at the same time, are open to meeting the individual on their level.

    The DentonMAC staff recognizes that self defense begins with physical rigor in training. The process continues with refinement of one’s physical and mental aptitude. We look first to overcome ourselves, not simply learn how to best others. Mastering ourselves allows us to overcome other adversity, whether a physical altercation, career change, or family matter. 

    The DentonMAC offers several options for improvement, from Aikido,  Karate, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and Zazen mediation. We wish for you to find the path that fits your needs. All of the arts will generate liveliness in the training, while creating a sense of community among practitioners.  

Come try a class for free to see if it is a good fit. You are welcome here.

Willeford

Such a wonderful experience for kids. My daughter can’t wait for classes. The entire philosophy is built on respect… They teach kids how to use their own strength to overcome an opponent, not to injure but to peacefully disarm and disengage. The instructors show kids the courtesy and respect that they demand and are firm…
