Welcome to the Headquarters of the Samurai Cop Self-Defense Academy. The Academy offers classes in self-defense for kids ages 7 years to 17 years of age.

The courses are designed to help increase the students self-confidence level while learning to arm themselves with the knowledge and personal skills needed to be better prepared to face a physical confrontation.
