Self Defence Courses

Self-defence is a set of awareness, avoidance, assertiveness and verbal confrontation skills with safety strategies and physical techniques that enable someone to successfully be aware of and avoid, resist or survive violent attacks. A good self-defence course provides psychological, awareness and verbal skills not only physical training and most importantly explains the self-defence law.

 

Essentially my courses differ from any other in that you do not need to be trained repetitively on an ongoing basis. I believe self-defence is so vitally important that it can’t take you 3, 4 or 6 months before you are trained and only able to defend yourself is parts over this period. In one session you will acquire all the basic skills you need to survive.

 

Self-defence is really easy to learn, all techniques are based on your instinctive reaction to danger and unlike martial arts (karate for example) doesn’t take months and years to learn. SDTA will train you to effectively deal with all kinds of real world threats and attacks. You will learn to identify a threat and how to stop/defuse a threat before it escalates into violence. The best outcome is always to safely remove yourself from the situation without fighting. However this is not always possible and you might find yourself in a situation where your life or the life of a colleague/loved-ones depends on your ability to fight. My system has been designed by me and trained to law enforcement and military units around the world and tested and proven in conflict zones around the globe.

 

Investment is from R300.00 per person and booking is essential.
