FREE Women's Self-Defence Seminar

Staying Safe On The Street

We all agree that it should be everyone’s right to be able to walk through their community safely.  The hard truth is however that we cannot control the actions of others.  

What really matters is whether or not we can lower the risk that we may actually face violence and that, we believe, is very much within our control!

To help you to be as safe, as situationally aware and as capable as possible we are putting on a FREE 2 hour seminar specifically for women on Saturday 26th June.

✅ Over 20 years of military and covert operational experience

✅ Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt

✅ Designed to develop your own situational awareness

✅ Increased confidence = decreased risk

✅ Understand the basics of self-defence

✅ Take home tools to use now

We only have 30 places available on a first come/first placed basis.  Register your interest today and we will send you details of how to book onto the seminar in due course.
