Personal Safety and Self Defence Training

When you’re looking for personal safety training, 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, which will be discussed when you contact us for a quote.

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.

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.

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.
