Silverback Self Defense was developed because of our passion to teach people how to effectively defend themselves. We keep it simple. It’s important to us that when someone attends one of our seminars that they are able to walk away equipped with knowledge and basic techniques that they will remember and help them feel more confident.

Our founder, Robert Webre has been a life long martial artist. Having been bullied as a child, Robert understood first hand the power that comes from  learning how to defend yourself.





“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.“

“We had a corporate self defense seminar in July 2019. I cannot express how amazing it was. The entire group loved every second. Tips on how to stay “aware” of your surroundings. The information was truly informative and then the actual hands on was excellent. Seeing that the techniques that are taught actually work is awesome. I won’t lie some of us were a little winded after all the exercises, just shows how much hands on there actually is. I would recommend Silverback to anyone and we will be having a Session II for our corporation as well.“

“Robert came out to do a self defense class for our women’s group at church. It was awesome. Very informative, we learned some great techniques and everyone really enjoyed it. I hope to schedule an additional training in the spring!“

“We signed my daughter up for a series of self defense private lessons for her to be better prepared when she goes off to college. In those 10 lessons we were impressed with the strong foundation she has learned in such a short period of time. Her instructor, Samantha was great! Very professional and thorough. We explained what we wanted our daughter to get out of the lessons and she tailored a plan utilizing our input and worked with our daughter to get the most out of those lessons.“

Estella J. 

“I attended the seminar for Houston Methodist Clear Lake and enjoyed the information as well as the self-defense techniques. My co-workers enjoyed it also and we are looking forward to signing up for the next class, level 2. I am glad I am now more aware of my surroundings and situations that have put me at risk in the past.“


“Robert did a great job with our staff and members at First Community Credit Union! He made it fun and easy to learn about self defense. He was engaging and personable! Attendees left asking when the next session would be because they enjoyed it so much. Thank you to Robert and Silverback Self Defense for working so well with us!“

Breana M.

“We did a private family self defense session last weekend with Robert and it was outstanding. He armed our two teenagers with good techniques for handling themselves in dangerous situations. I would definitely recommend this type of hands on training for women, children or teenagers in particular, although even my husband found it very interesting and informative.“
