Defence isn't about standing toe to toe with an attacker and fighting. It's about avoidance or using functional techniques to defend yourself when avoidance is not an option. Enabling you to escape the threat as soon as possible
It's not about fancy, elaborate over technical moves so commonly seen in the movies and on social media

Numerous scientific studies and pressure testing have proven that the most commonly taught techniques will not work under duress.

On this course you will learn why it is essential to understand how our natural physiological reactions in a high stress situation effect our performance and capabilities

You will learn functional & realistic defensive techniques against armed & unarmed aggressors, the real dangers of edged weapons, the UK laws governing the use of force, what your legal rights to defend yourselves and your loved ones are and much much more.

ALL TAUGHT IN A FUN AND RELAXED ENVIRONMENT
