Self-defence is not just about countering violence with violence.

Based in Loughton, Essex, we teach a range of skills and concepts, which encompass personal safety, security and self-defence to members of the public, company employees, hospital staff, teachers and school children. We cater for all levels of fitness and ability from beginners to advanced.

Our clients learn essential self-protection skills in a safe environment to prepare them for the harsh reality of a real-life attack.
