Each Self-Defence course is based on the most common attacks and tailored to the needs of the group; male, female, children & over 55s.

The pre-learning theory element is required to be covered prior to attending the training day. This can be done by completing the online e-learning or by reading through a workbook. A theory assessment must also be completed prior to attending the practical course. This enables you to take the theory in at your own pace, as well as providing you with a good foundation for what will be covered during the practical course.
