Group Self Defence Classes

Join one of our group self defence courses and learn the techniques in a friendly, controlled environment. Group sizes are kept small, training every Saturday morning at our facility in Bristol. Each course lasts for 6 weeks, allowing you to train to whichever level you feel necessary for your own personal circumstances. This also ensures that all students in the group are always at the same level and learning together.

Our courses are designed to teach you all areas of self protection, self defence, avoidance and awareness. Our aim is to prevent people from becoming the victims of violent crime by avoiding confrontation, rather than training people how to be expert fighters. However, there are times when physical defence is necessary. Therefore, our courses are a mixture of self protection advice, verbal control and diffusion, and physical self defence techniques.

Private Self Defence Courses

Would you prefer to learn self defence in the comfort of your own home? Are you looking for a more intensive learning experience with two instructors teaching you on your own? Do you have a group of friends or colleagues who would like to learn self defence together? If so, our private lessons are the solution.

We offer private self defence lessons to individuals or small groups. Tuition can be provided in your own home; at your place of work; or at our facility in Bristol. We are able to provide training anywhere throughout the UK.

Private lessons can either mirror the standard group courses or be tailored to your specific needs. For example, if you are about to embark on a trip abroad, we are able to offer an intensive course before you go, to ensure you remain safe whilst travelling

Bespoke Self Protection Courses

We regularly run one-day seminars on specific self protection topics, for example courses just for women. These seminars can be run anywhere within the UK.

We are also able to provide self protection and conflict management training to organisations and educational establishments. The courses can be as long or as short as you wish and the content can be tailored to your specific needs.

Please contact us for further details.
