Personal Protection Courses:
Our Personal Protection courses are designed to offer no-nonsense advice on all aspects of modern self-defence. The topics we cover include: Self-Defence And The Law, Verbalisation, Threat Awareness, Psychology Of Fighting and Specific Drills. These courses are aimed at anyone, regardless of fitness or physical ability, who wishes to explore and gain a better understanding of the reality of being attacked and positively being able to defend themselves. These courses can be arranged for small private or corporate groups covering all the above along with control and restraint tactics specific to their jobs (If applicable). We aim to ensure that everyone who takes part in our courses, will leave with a more confident approach on how to deal with the threat of violence in daily life.
