Introduction to Basic Self Protection 

2 hours duration

£50 for 2 people.  Others may attend for £10 per person  

Private Session, you chose your training partners, this is not a public class or a group. 


This is not designed to make you fit nor do you need to be able to climb mountains or run marathons to attend. It is designed to help you survive and if need be protect those around you.


Introducing and teaching the basics of situational awareness, alertness, avoiding confrontation and some basic but effective escape techniques from various holds and grabs etc in a multitude of situations.


The session is designed to instil a realistic awareness of potential threatening and confrontational situations and how to avoid them and retreat from them where possible.   


Topics covered

  • Situational awareness and escape in public places, places you frequent, vehicles and at home. 
  • Basic escape manoeuvres from a range of common grabs and holds.


After this session students can block book 6 or 12 sessions at a reduced rate and at flexible times best suited to their lifestyle and I work intensely with them to develop skills and knowledge that fits the environments they frequent.  I have trained people from all walks of life, some of which include delivery drivers, nurses, missionairies, hostile environment operatives (poilce, army, close protection, paramedics), high net worth individuals and business owners and their staff..  I have trained people with all sorts of fitness and physical abilities/disabilities.


Some of my students have avoided serious situations, some have unfortunately had to use physical skills to survive, some have saved others lives.


At the end of these 2 hours I gaurantee you will leave with a lot of very useful skills and knowledge to enhance your life and that of those around you!
