Hear what others have to say about our Self-Defence Programs:

“This should be a must for every female. Often, we think that unpleasant encounters won’t happen to us, however, they can and do. Don’t get into a state of shock or powerlessness when these things happen. Be prepared by having the knowledge!” – Krissie Cao

“I really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend to all my female friends!” – Meg Clarke

“As a person with a martial arts background, I found it very informational and I feel more able to avoid bad situations & I have a plan it it came to it. Self-Defence education and training is a must for all the people you love.”– Yahvinah Morris

“I learnt how to defend and not to automatically be afraid of someone larger. I think it’s great for women to be aware of what they can do and this program will achieve that for them.” – Tina Okey

“I feel more empowered now!” – Jessica Quigley

“Excellent workshop – very helpful & practical. Excellent tutors.” – Lauren Taylor

“The most important thing I learnt was that if I change my mindset, I have the power / possibility of changing the outcome. I found that practicing the techniques & talking through the stages made me feel more secure in my ability and less afraid.” – Jemma Gullen

“It is really eye-opening and something everyone should know. The trainers are great and easy to understand.” – Roxanne Betts
