This workshop aims to demystify self defence and teach you practical steps that you would be able to take in the event that you find yourself in a position where you need to protect yourself or a loved one.

Initially you will learn how to try to avoid physical confrontation, only then, when all else fails, are martial techniques to be used.

You will not learn how to disarm attackers with knives and guns, once a confrontation becomes physical. We stress avoidance of those confrontations at all costs. We will teach you about tactics on de-fusing situations, as well as positioning techniques and how to distract attention of attackers, so that you are able to escape.

One problem with many self defence courses, is that they leave the participants with a false sense of security and confidence, often leaving them in more danger of being harmed than before
they took the course!

What you will learn are tried and tested techniques that if practised and refined, will give you the best chance of a favourable outcome to any self defence scenario.
