Personal Safety Training
A range of unique courses to keep you safe and secure
Raising awareness of your personal safety and security
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 trainers are especially selected for their expertise in their fields and have many years of experience in training and teaching self defence.
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.
The Staff Defence Personal Safety Model is registered on the Trade Marks Registry under registration No. UK00003271833.
What you will learn
The training you will receive does not require a high level of fitness or strength, or any prior experience. It focuses purely on the practical aspects of body mechanics, maximising the effects of using your natural strengths against an adversary's weaknesses, with quick simple techniques that creates distractions and an escape for you. After taking these courses, people have told us that they feel empowered and more self-confident.
Our Personal Safety Training courses
Duration: 6 Hours
Our personal safety foundation level™course has 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. The course is split between the foundation level and the intermediate levels to allow the core skills to be hard wired.More Detail>>>
These courses are open to anyone over the age of 16 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.
The courses are conducted at our training venue in Onley, near Rugby in the East Midlands, but can be held at suitable locations at your organisation.

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.

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…
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…
