SELF DEFENCE COURSES AND WORKSHOPS
Due to our central Cambridge location, we’ve been fortunate enough to be involved with the University of Cambridge over the past couple of years, teaching students and staff at a number of the colleges. In particular, our Women's Practical Self Defence Course has been taught to the female students at Trinity College, Newnham College, and the Cambridge Student Union. We also teach our syllabus weekly to the seniors at King’s Ely School as part of their sport programme.
We have also delivered Officer Safety Training (OST) police constabularies (including the Metropolitan Police) and Krav Maga training to HM Forces at RAF Whyton and The US Armed Forces at RAF Mildenhall.
Our corporate clients have included Cambridge Assessment and Boston Consulting Group.
WOMEN'S PRACTICAL SELF DEFENCE COURSE
This workshop is part lecture/discussion, part physical skill building and gives a brief introduction into the types of violence typically experienced by women. Analysing the difference between Social and Asocial violence, and how to recognise and react to certain common behaviour.
The physical skills taught are very basic but aim to give the participants a simple toolkit of gross motor skills to use as a last resort.
Two instructors (1 female, 1 male) deliver this course with practical demonstrations and participants will work with a partner (or group) for the duration of the session. We provide all equipment needed. Minimum 2 hours.
SPECIALIST SELF PROTECTION COURSES
Courses can be built around specific industries with specific needs. Corporate, Law Enforcement or Military. From basic physical intervention skills to more specialised responses to weapons.
These courses typically involve fundamental fighting skills for standing and the ground, technical work, tactics for individuals or groups and scenario training with body armour/protection (force on force drills). We use Krav Maga as our primary skillset, but techniques and principles from Boxing and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu are also applied.
