40th Anniversary

Chamberlain Studios of Self Defense is in our 40th year of providing martial arts education for children and adults. Under the instruction of Grandmaster Chamberlain, our system features modern techniques combined with traditional training methods.

Kids Kenpo Karate

Karate is a great recreational activity; it provides good exercise and self-discipline, builds confidence, and establishes achievable goals. Our Kids Karate classes incorporate the 3-Steps to a Great Kid™ character development program.

The emphasis of the program is respect; respecting the instructors, the school, and fellow students.

Adult Kenpo Karate

The primary style of martial arts taught at Chamberlain Studios of Self-Defense™ is Gasan Ryu™ Kenpo: a practical, efficient, and easy to learn system that incorporates the kicking and punching of Karate, the throws, locks and mat-work of Judo and Jiu-Jitsu, the explosive striking power of Kenpo, and the hand techniques of western boxing. It was developed by Grand Master Nick Chamberlain after 25 years of training with some of the world’s best martial arts instructors.

“I have been very impressed with the numerous precautions Chamberlain Studios of Self Defense has taken to help combat the spread of Covid-19 at the dojo, and subsequently the community at large….Temperature checks, limiting indoor class sizes, mandatory masks/face coverings, eliminating person to person contact, and the sterilization of the dojo after every class, as well as a deep clean every night…give me the peace of mind I need while I am training at CSSD. The creation of an online training library, inclusion of outdoor training sessions, as well as live Zoom broadcasts for all classes have been invaluable in supplementing my training as well during these challenging times. Kudos to CSSD on a job well done!”

Dr. Faisal F. Chaundry

“I never knew when we signed up for Kenpo at Chamberlain Studios that it would become part of the fabric of our family. All four of us take classes, and kata and grappling are honored family activities. In a way the dojo is just an extension of our home, and the senseis and Shihan are family.”

“…Not only are my sons embracing the art of karate, they have gained confidence, developed respect, and learned perseverance and discipline. I am so thankful that Chamberlain Studios is just as interested in nurturing the character of my children as they are teaching high kicks and hammer fists.”

Elisa Laird

“Working with Chamberlain Studios has been a pleasure. Dr. Chamberlain and his staff are professional educators from start to finish. They not only teach self defense but also good citizenry. The quality of the instruction is excellent and the kids have a great time while learning. I sent my kids to one of their camps and they loved it! I highly recommend the program.”

Mr. Mike Schneider, Director of Summer Camps at the Episcopal School of Dallas

“Went here for a free Self Defense class. They did an amazing job! I recommend this class to everyone.”

Diane Mikkelson

“I just had my son’s birthday party and it was the best party we’ve ever had or ever been to! Thank you again!”
