About C.O.B.R.A.™ Self-Defense System Instructor Tina Richard

Tina has extensive martial arts training in hand to hand combat and Filipino weapons.  Her real passion is teaching.  Her goal is to provide a comprehensive self-defense program that would be more than a one-day seminar but not requiring 10 years of commitment.  Tina has been researching the best educational process to get people involved in their own safety.  During her quest she hit the jack-pot with C.O.B.R.A.™ Self-Defense System.

About DFMAC Defense Facility

DFMAC Defense (formally Dragon Family Martial Arts Center) has been in business in the Kansas City area since 1995.  Self-defense training is focused on real life simulations of confrontations based on a variety of situations and types of fighters (no experience, grapplers, boxers, criminals, etc.) To be an efficient fighter, training needs to be adjusted for the individual’s tools, gender and body type. This has evolved into why different styles are taught at DFMAC Defense.  Classes include Jeet Kune Do, Wing Chun, Filipino Martial Arts, MMA Conditioning and are happy to now include C.O.B.R.A. Self-defense.
