August 11th 2022 “Meet the Owner.”

Hi! I’m eighth degree black belt Diane Reeve Kirby and I’m the owner of Action Self Defense – the premier self-defense company teaching real world self-defense by a real deal female instructor! With over 35 years of martial arts experience, and black belts in four different styles, I have taught literally thousands of women men and children how to prevent and defend against attacks from a predator. I was also the sole owner of Vision Martial Arts Center in Plano Texas for almost 27 years. Although I recently retired, I was compelled to keep teaching Self Defense.

I say I compelled because I’ve had some difficult situations come up in my life. Situations (before my martial arts training) where I didn’t have the confidence or even the knowledge, I needed to thwart an attacker–whether it was verbal, emotional or physical assault. Once I earned my black belts, I vowed that I would do everything I could to keep what happened to me from happening to anyone else.

THAT’S WHY I’M HERE! To make sure you stay safe, savvy and secure! I hope you will take a few minutes to find out all the valuable info Action Self Defense provides. Classes that will help
