    Joe Robaina shows a sincere interest in all his students. He effectively communicates and lends support and guidance to all his students. He is a great coach and keeps the students engaged and motivated. He has given my daughter the encouragement and self confidence needed to move forward in her training. She is very excited to attend all of the classes and is looking forward to attending more academies in the future.

  • Camila

    Training is hands on. Scenarios are realistic and prepare you for real life situations.

  • Silvia Esposito

    We received excellent training from Cobra Regional Direcotor, Joe Robaina, and his staff of professionals who trained us in self-defense techniques using role playing/real-life scenarios. The Cobra instructors provided us with tools to feel more empowered and better prepared in a variety of scenarios that we may encounter.

  • Daniel

    Thoroughly knowledgeable, friendly, committed to making sure we all pay attention in class. Joe is a taskmaster but that's what makes the class so effective.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

COBRA Defense Miami members enjoy a family like community that includes participating in community events from preparing meals for the homeless to spartan races and COBRA Academy gradutaion outings.

We also dontae Active Shooter Response Trainings to school teachers every year.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Do your research. Self defense shouldn't be taken likely. Whomever you choose to train you will have a HUGE responsibility. Choose them wisely as you would a brain surgeon.   Please Note: what we offer isn't martial arts. Nothing wrong with martial arts if that's what you're looking for.  What we offer is law enforcemnt based reality self defense training. We impart skills sets that will give you a 90% probability of survival under the duress of an assault There is no 100% fool-proof solution to all types of violence. It doesn't require years of study to be trained to avoid physical violence or survive it. Can the program in question provide you a written step by step curriculum for what you're looking for. Look at track record. Who have they trained and what references can they offer. The best in any industry can always recognize top notch.  Make sure you get exactly what you're looking for. Your life is worth it.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Know exactly what you want, why you want it and how long is it going to take them to get you to that level?

When you express what you want, ask whether they can offer you a measurable, outcomes based program based on what YOU want and not based on a one size fits all curriculum.
