The 8-Week Self-Defence Course was brilliant. Martin Sensei and everyone there was really welcoming and patient with me. I have learned lots of different ways of defending myself in different situations and can feel myself getting fitter! I've decided to stay on after the self-defence course to learn more Aikido techniques. Would recommend it to anyone!

  • A boss or co-worker keeps making unwanted advances. Learn how to stop it.

The longer you put this off, it's going to get more difficult to do. Everyday life is going to get in the way and prevent you learning these valuable life lessons. 
Successful people act quickly. You never know when someone may try to mug, sexually abuse, or try to kill you. It is better to have skills and not to have to use them than to be attacked and have to live with the "If only I had ..."
Due to limited space, we can only accept 8 women. Call now to reserve your spot. Please share this with your friends and loved ones, maybe we can help one of them. Thank you.

If you say "No!" He / She must stop!

Your body is your temple! No-one has the right to touch you without your permission. Learn to set boundaries and don't let others pressure you into doing something you are uncomfortable about. 
When you go out with your friends for drinks be careful not to leave your drink unattended, someone may slip something into it and the next thing you know, you are waking up after having been sexually assaulted. If you are unfortunate and find yourself in this situation please report it to the police immediately. They will do their best to help you. 
Bad things happen in predictable places. What are those places?
Bars, parties and other places where people get their minds altered. Drugs & alcohol change the way people think and act. They lower  inhibitions and make people stupid.
