5 STAR REVIEWS From Happy Customers!

We love helping people and making the community more aware. A person more alert and mindful of their surroundings is less likely to be a victim. One that has knowledge of what to do if a bad situation arises is even less likely to experience a bad outcome.

What a few of our customers had to say.

Awesome Instructor

Robert Webre is an awesome instructor. He provides great information about general awareness as well as giving physical self defense instruction. We will be taking more courses.

Tactical Skills

The Concealed Carry Tactical Skills Seminar was amazing this weekend. Even with having a military background, and using firearms for many years, I learned a lot. It’s a great course to take to not only learn how to defend yourself in a number of different situations, but also how to defend loved ones and others

So Educational

Robert taught our group of ladies how to defend ourselves in different situations. He also educated the group about awareness of our surroundings  and to "not live in the white".

A great event – so much fun.

We had a group event for our office that taught us all some basic and easily learned techniques to protect ourselves and get out of a physical attack. Robert taught us the importance of awareness and the actual maneuvers to escape chokes, bear hugs and various grabs with ease.


We started Silverback Self Defense because of my passion for teaching people how to defend themselves. I have trained in Martial Arts most of my adult life and being the parent of four children and three daughters I know the value of learning how to defend yourself will empower someone.

My wife and I own Cypress Martial Arts & Fitness, in Cypress Texas a suburb in Northwest Houston. I am a 6th Degree Black Belt in ITF TaeKwon-Do, a certified KMG Krav Maga instructor level G-3. I train in Gracie Jujitsu and I am also an HKC certified Kettlebell Instructor. I taught traditional taekwondo and mixed martial arts at Lone Star college for ten years and we have owned our school for the last 14 years.
