Team building Self Defence for groups

Self Defence for groups

Team building self defence for groups can run as a one-off taster session or a multi session course. Techniques covered include theory and practical skills. These can run during the day, as an end of day activity or later in the evening across Essex and London.

Self defence techniques learnt through the training are relatively simple, extremely effective and fun. Learn the ability to avoid freezing in an attack situation by perfecting learned responses. SDF Essex training is always respectful, positive, encouraging and challenging.

In an attack, surviving unharmed is winning, many attacks either start with grabbing, pushing or pulling.

Sessions can be tailored to meet specific requirements and can include knife and rape defence techniques.

Self Defence for students

Self defence and personal safety classes for students at University. 

Personal safety self defence training is a life skill. It helps with confidence, self esteem, fitness, develops strong bonds of friendship and respect.

A number of teenagers and young adults use my classes for their physical activity for the Duke of Edinburgh award.

SDF Essex Testimonial

Richard took a workshop for myself and a group of my fellow fitness clients, and whilst teaching us some serious techniques for our own self defence, he also made the workshop enjoyable and put us all at ease to ensure we learnt the techniques properly.

The safety talk prior to the workshop day was very informative and we all agreed we learnt a lot of new things that we may not have thought of before… 

I wouldn’t hesitate to book more workshops with Richard again in the future! Thank you.”

Fitness Instructor

“As the Director of Boarding at an independent school, I felt it was important to offer self-defence classes to our boarding students. 

Richard was very enthusiastic, flexible and willing to accommodate our varying needs within the whole school boarding community. The sessions were engaging with a variety of activities.

Richard managed to cover a lot of information into his sessions and they were a good mix of theoretical and practical.

One of the girls commented that …. “Self defence made me feel empowered and self-assured that in a compromising situation I would be able to defend myself”. 

The students overwhelmingly found the sessions useful as well as really fun and I would highly recommend Richard and his training.
