Self Defence for Your Family

Self Defence is a Skill for Life

" Brilliant course. It teaches how not to be a victim, the psychology of the attacker, the excuses we make for people's behaviour, the red flags of an upcoming attack, when to strike first, and obviously so hands-on moves. It's all about the self-defense mindset and connecting the neuropathways for self-defense. I'm so happy my 12 year old got this course, she really enjoyed it and feels very empowered now. I have recommended this course to many people already" Sandrine

Taking the Krav Maga course was the best things I've ever done for myself. Patrick is incredible, he kept us grounded and in-tune in a really fun, interesting, practical way. He just kept it all so real as did Maria and Pauric the other tutors. We were worked hard but the class was so exhilarating we just wanted to keep going. I learned so much, I'm feeling the benefits and a new kind of confidence in myself. This course really is life-changing and, for everyone. I can't recommend this course highly enough.

Patrick and his team are not only extremely competent in the technical aspects of self defence, they're also exceptionally capable of motivating the participants in engaging in activities and believing that they can do things for themselves. I loved both the theoretical and practical parts of the training

I have about 50 years practising and teaching Martial Arts, and my personal opinion is Patrick is for me one the best in teaching Practical Self Defence.
Simple and effective.

I was not sure if this course would be enough to learn something useful, but I must say it exceeded my expectations. Patrick was an excellent instructor both in teaching techniques and in talking about how to assess situations.

fabulous trainers. They made a tough subject and workout relevant, fun and memorable.
