our values

Students discover what it's like to follow a good leader.  They then use that learning to become the best leader of themselves.



Confidence is know what to do with the knowledge you have.  Students learn confidence in their physical , problem solving and communication skills.

Consistency plus effort is the discipline that students learn every class.  They can use what they learn to help them in school, family and work life.



In a time when distractions are everywhere, focus is an incredible skill to learn.  It's not only for the young, adults can learn how to better focus through training.

Mental Resilience

Grit, toughness and mental resilience are what get you through the tough times and find a solution for our students to be successful.



It's not only about having the knowledge, it's about being able to use it effectively and share it to help others.

our families say


"I was so proud to be part of the TSD family at the tournament! The level of respect each student showed to the judges and opponents was by far my favorite part. Everyone bowed when they needed to, used respect of yes sir and sat like a black belt on the sides. Anyone can teach someone how to punch and kick but Betsy Rawlins and Herb Blue teach so much more than that at Total Self Defense! Thank you for helping all of us raise confident and respectful warriors!"
