Learning reality based self defence is a vital life skill, it’s not a sport.

“I wanted my teenage children, to meet new people and try a new activity. I was recommended that they try Richard’s classes my children decided to “give it a go”. They both really enjoy going with the bonus that this activity can be used towards their Duke of Edinburgh award. As a parent I now feel that they are getting fit, meeting new people and having the bonus of keeping themselves safe.”

Parent of Teenage Children

“From my experience it’s not until something happens to you that you realise that you should have done something about it before it actually happens… Since attending these classes with Richard my life is back on track, my confidence is back I rarely suffer from anxiety and I have found something that I really enjoy doing. I strongly recommend that whoever reads this takes action and attends these classes you never know what is round the corner!”

Mr R an Essex Student

“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!”
