Please let us know your situation. We can then discuss your requirements in detail and in absolute confidence.

From UK press………….

90% of people live in fear of crime

2 out 3 have been burgled, beaten, or had theft

Women feel especially vulnerable…….though men are the most likely victims

Knife crime is up by 22%

Gun crime is up by 11%

The Need

Following Risk & Threat assessments (which we can provide, along with site security surveys if required) many companies realise the need for Self Protection skills for their staff. 

Members of the public also feel the same in this day and age. The reasons are many but can include:

Workplace violence 

Business travel

Holidays & Adventures


Car jacking


Gap years

Even walking around town, socialising, etc because of acid attacks, knife/ Terrorist attack, moped gangs, or when at home due to fear of domestic violence, burglary, racism, sex offences etc.

The Courses

Used internationally by Charities, Health Care Professionals, Security Companies etc and by private individuals. They are NOT sport, Hollywood or martial art seminars. No need to be fit, agile or do the splits! We service those needing REAL world Self Protection advice, and simple, effective, workable skills training. We can provide tailor made courses for your own requirements or a BTEC Level 2 Certificate in Breakaway & Self Defence for those needing a recognised National Vocational Qualification.


Breakaway & Self Defence - BTEC Level 2 Certificate

If you or your staff need or want a recognised formal National Vocational Self Defence Qualification then this is the course for you. It is therefore ideal for NHS staff, Care Workers, Social Workers, Public Transport Workers, Education Staff, Drug & Alcohol Service Workers, Shop Workers, lone Workers, Charity Workers, Security Staff, Debt Collectors/ Repossession Agents and anyone else working directly face to face with the public and at risk from physical assault whilst going about their employment duties.

The course will give delegates a way of defending oneself that is legally correct & defensible, delivered in a Health & Safety compliant way, and result in a Pearson/ Edexcel BTEC Level 2 Certificate in Breakaway & Self Defence for successful candidates. This is a one day course. No previous experience or qualifications are needed, nor do delegates need to be “super fit”. Just the basic physical ability to complete physical skills training and the personal ability to attend a class room course and sit written exam papers in the English language.

Consider this:

Have you considered that under your duty of care as an employer, and under health & safety legislation that you need to provide your staff with adequate training?……at risk employees sustaining an injury at work could possibly sue you.

Can you or your staff quickly recognise situations that are turning potentially violent?

Can you or your staff diffuse/ safely break away from/ deal with/ and get away from these situations?

Do you or your staff understand the Law regarding Defence of themselves and/ or others, so that they can protect themselves and your company legally?

The additional benefit of the team building these courses provide?

We can also provide tailor made courses to meet your own exact requirements. 

Agenda’s may include:

The Law

Victim selection

Awareness & Avoidance

Pre Conflict Rituals

Body Language

Verbal Abuse

Adrenaline & Fear

“The trainer fits in and stands out. We really enjoyed the outstanding courses. They were very well structured containing theoretical and practical elements, useful for both professional and day to day use. We relaxed, we had fun, and most importantly we learnt things and developed our skills. An experience to remember.”

“I work in an environment where our clients have challenging behaviours. I decided to go on a self Protection/ Defence course to instill confidence when tackling situations. The content of the course exceeded anything of the companies I have worked for. The course was also relevant and useful for my everyday life. I am now more aware of my surroundings and feel confident to know what to do In a potentially aggressive or challenging situation, wherever I am. I would highly recommend the trainer and course to anybody”
