About self protection

In self protection, we will teach you how to defend yourself in a variety of situations and scenarios, walking down the street, in the pub, standing, sitting or lying down……….

Our self protection classes include and are not limited to, defence against weapons, chokes, strangles, arm locks and groundwork, defense against the most common attacks on the street, confrontation management skills, natural stance awareness, the pre-emptive strike, ambushes, sucker punches, Senshido’s 5 Principals of physical retaliation™, The Opportunity Drill™ and more, drawing on many elements of our varied Martial Arts experiences.

Combined with the tactical and strategic breakthroughs of Rich Dimitri’s Senshido and his unique close-quarter combat tool known as The Shredder™.

Although we take the business of self defence and personal protection very seriously, we think it is vitally important that our classes are enjoyable and that all the students look forward to coming back.

At our personal protection and self defense classes, you will make new friends and learn how to protect yourself at the same time.

Within weeks you’ll learn how to de-escalate an attack, punch, kick, deal with multiple attackers, usage of pressure points and understand the real danger from a variety of street weapons.

We are also available to instruct personal protection and self defence at your Martial Art Club or your Work Place.
