Adults, and older teens that demonstrate the necessary maturity levels, will be taken on to much higher levels 

of unarmed hand-to-hand combat/self-defense. We work through various types of defenses against the usually seen street and household weapons (knife, gun, rifle, scissors and so on). You can also delve into some of the more obscure weaponry (nun-chucks, staffs, whips and so on), as an added bonus. ​​


This is another unique aspect of the training at Jung Kwon Academy. All students get the opportunity to practice their training in a safe, controlled situation/scenario set-up. This training is particularly effective in learning how to actually put your training into use in a split second. Over time many, many different scenarios are covered (including ones that students or family members have actually experienced for real, and many others that you might never anticipate, on your own).



In our program, as you master more of the concepts of defending yourself or your loved ones, the instructors will introduce you to new concepts - building on what you've already learned. We spent 3 1/2 years developing our training system, so that you don't have to! In a typical martial arts studio, everyone learns to do the same exact thing (whether they're 4 years old, or 64 years old - and 4 feet tall or 6 foot 7). Real life doesn't work that way! Here, everyone learns the same basic concepts, but each person is taught to excel in their own individual strengths. That means you learn faster, and easier. Which means you're safer - sooner!


Jung Kwon Martial Arts' individually tailored approach to self-defense training means fast progression, easy understanding and easy learning!

Jung Kwon Martial Arts Academy Asheville offers high quality, personally tailored self-defense training for persons of all ages. From the littlest ones (3-4 years old) to the oldest, (over 60,) each person learns at their own pace.  Our unique program is designed to help you progress more quickly, and with less effort. On average, our students begin to master some of the core basics of unarmed self-defense, within their

first week or two  of practicing here! Yes, one or two weeks!​​

A word about "Women's Self Defense Classes"

When we founded Asheville Self Defense 7 years ago, one of the things that bothered us most, about modern American martial arts... was the upsurge of expensive ''Women's Self Defense'' classes. A friend of ours had recently told us she had paid $350 for her high school daughter to attend a four-hour 'Self Defense Course for College-Bound Students'' before sending the 18-year old off to Chapel Hill for 4 years. That's almost $90 an hour!

That's NUTS!

First, you can learn some stuff in four hours... but you cannot learn enough.

Second, for $90 an hour, you could hire a bodyguard, with a car!

Third, since when do women need different training than the men, to defend themselves from attackers?

It's as if people expect women to only know how to do a couple things... and that's ok, because that's all they'll ever need.    WRONG!

​It's kind of like... ''stuff for girls should ALWAYS be PINK''.


All our female students get exctly the same high quality training as the males do -


Womens' Self Defense and Kids Self Defense has to be tailored to their own individual

bodies, their own abilities and ways of doing things; that's natural. 

The bad guys' body does not suddenly develop new targets just because the person they're attacking is a woman, a girl or a small boy! 

At Jung Kwon Academy Asheville/Asheville Self Defense, our female students will always get 'Complete Self Defense' training - not "Women's Self Defense Training''.  There IS a difference! 

And for $90, you'll get more than a month's worth of unlimited classes, instead of just an hour!​​
