Our focus is on the ability to defend yourself without complicated techniques that may require long term training. Everyone should have the right to feel safe – but many people admit that they would not know what to do if they were physically attacked.

Our unique system is designed to benefit men, women and children, providing easy to remember techniques that could save your life – our courses do not require any martial arts or enhanced physical fitness techniques and we deliver this through a variety of effective teaching methods including classes and courses.

The techniques we teach you will allow you to defend yourself against a variety of conflict situations including punches, kicks, blunt weapons, knives, defence and escapes from the floor, grabbing attacks, bladed weapons, psychological self-defence, voice commands and personal protection theory.
