Personal Safety Training Courses
When you’re looking for personal safety training courses, you want to be sure that the training you get is going to serve you well in the moment that you need it. Our instructors are especially selected for their expertise in their fields and have many years of experience in training and teaching martial arts.
Our personal safety courses have been specifically designed to enable you to identify potential dangers, avoid those dangers, or, if that is not possible, to de-escalate conflicts, allowing you to remove yourself to a safe area as fast as possible. After taking these courses, people have told us that they feel empowered and more self-confident.
Although our instructors are trained in martial arts, we have spent many years moving away from teaching traditional martial arts ‘Self Defence’ techniques in our courses. These techniques are overly complicated, require many hours of repetition and even when someone is proficient in them, it is extremely difficult to make them work in a non-compliant situation.
Our training sessions are held at a location near you (across the UK & internationally).Get in touch to discuss your specific training needs
What you will learn
The aims of our courses are to teach you:
- awareness of the laws relating to self defence and the definition of Reasonable Force;
- the assault cycle and associated triggers and de-escalations;
- how to avoid potentially dangerous situations;
- self defence techniques which allow you to quickly extract yourself to a safe location.
The training you will receive does not require a high level of fitness or strength, or any prior martial arts experience. It focuses purely on the practical aspects of body mechanics, maximising the effects of using your natural strengths against an adversary’s weaknesses, being based upon the natural principles of traditional Chinese medicine.Ask us a Question
Who the training is for
These courses are open to anyone as they require no prior fitness or training and they are run at a very low intensity level, with every effort being made to ensure the safety of every participant and to maximise your learning potential.
We have had participants as young as 5 years old and up to 70, so there is no real age barrier to these courses. We also run groups for women’s charities, support groups and workshops for children.
When attending a training course, wear comfortable clothing and bring a water bottle with you.Ask us a Question
Foundation Self Defence with Personal Safety Awareness Course
This Foundation Self Defence course presents you with the ability to quickly de-escalate a situation and extract yourself rapidly.
We will cover basic safety awareness and the signs to look for in order to avoid dangerous situations. The course then moves on to show you how to defend yourself and which points on the body can be used to shut down an aggressive attack very rapidly.
This training runs for four hours, but can be extended if required. It is the foundation upon which the intermediate level course is built.

What our clients say
I travel aboard on my own relatively regularly for work so this training has really helped me to prepare for potentially difficult situations that I hadn’t previously considered or thought through. It provided a safe environment to try out the various bits of theory and basic moves that we were taught on the day. Hopefully…
You hope never to be in a situation when you’ll have to use self-defence, but having taken the training I’d feel much more confident should the scenario arise. We learned key information and techniques on how to react if required, and the day included plenty of time out of the classroom to practise these skills
Wasn’t what I was expecting but was more fun and gave some very simple and useful steps to use if you are backed into a corner. The trainers were very clear and concise, the actions and demonstrations given were very straightforward and easy to follow. All in all, an enjoyable morning and well worth the…
I found the course very interesting and entertaining. Any pre conceived ideas on what would be involved were quickly clarified at the outset and from there the course went along at a good pace of theoretical and then practical. The practical sessions were not taxing and did illustrate clearly what can be achieved with a…
The course consisted of a Powerpoint presentation and some practical exercises. The practical exercises were brilliant. The lead trainer demonstrated what to do and why. We then followed his lead. The theory behind the course makes perfect sense and the moves are simple and easy to implement. I have subsequently taught my wife and children…
I thoroughly enjoyed the realistic approach to this and came out of it feeling that I was in a much better position to protect myself or others in the event of an issue. Ultimately the early advice of avoid trouble would be my adapted route, however I am now better prepared.
We send a number of our staff, sometimes alone, to remote areas of the world, often making long journeys. Through their isolation they are potentially at risk of something untoward occurring. They do a good job for us and anything we can do to help ensure their safety during their travels is worthwhile. The course…
I just wanted to pass on my gratitude for the excellent training that both Pete and Steve delivered to our Personal Safety Trainers. Their knowledge of how to adapt our current techniques and make them more relevant and workable meant that everyone benefited from their expertise. The training was a real eye opener and really…
I’ve known Pete for a number of years now! with over 35 years of Continuous Martial Arts experience combined with working in risk and protective services both military and civilian for all my adult working life, I’m well versed to give an effective opinion in terms of skills set. I have found Pete to be…
A group of female colleagues and I recently met with Steve and his team for a self defence class. My preconception of a self defence class was about learning how to throw your attacker over your shoulder and body slam them to the ground! Oh, how wrong could I be. We were taught that martial…
