Self Defence Workshops and Courses

Corporate Services: Self Defence for Employees

Self defence for employees - healthy risk assessment.




Our self defence for employees courses and workshops can be tailored to suit the particular requirements of the company concerned. However, we have a tried and tested formula that comprises of two one-day workshops. The first of these focusses on awareness, posture (don’t advertise that you are a potential victim), and self defence techniques against an unarmed opponent.
