A range of unique courses to keep you safe and secure

When you’re looking for personal safety training courses, you want to be sure that the training you get is going to serve you well in the moment that you need it. Our trainers are especially selected for their expertise in their fields and have many years of experience in training and teaching self defence.

We have spent many years moving away from teaching traditional martial arts ‘Self Defence’ techniques in our courses. These techniques are overly complicated, require many hours of repetition and even when someone is proficient in them, it is extremely difficult to make them work in a non-compliant situation.

The Staff Defence Personal Safety Model is registered on the Trade Marks Registry under registration No. UK00003271833.

What you will learn

The training you will receive does not require a high level of fitness or strength, or any prior experience. It focuses purely on the practical aspects of body mechanics, maximising the effects of using your natural strengths against an adversary’s weaknesses, with quick simple techniques that creates distractions and an escape for you. After taking these courses, people have told us that they feel empowered and more self-confident.

  • Awareness of the laws relating to self defence
  • The assault cycle, triggers & de-escalations.
  • How to avoid potentially dangerous situations.
  • Rapid escape self defence techniques
