Why choose Staff Defence to train you?

When you’re concerned about personal safety (yours or someone else’s) or you are travelling overseas as a lone traveller or as a corporate organisation and you want to be sure that the training you get to help you is of the highest standard, learnt from real world operations.

Choosing Staff Defence as your training company will give you the information and practice you need, to give you peace of mind and to feel safe and confident in your daily life, and when sending your personnel on overseas travel to locations of a fragile or Hostile nature.

“It is very satisfying when you can see people after the courses feeling empowered and having a greater level of self esteem and confidence, which can have a big impact on how they approach life as a whole.”
