Self Defence Beginner Course 

Self defence tailored specifically for beginners. This introductory self defence course will teach you techniques that do not rely on strength – including advanced biomechanics. Biomechanics is the art of exploiting the structure of the human body and its natural weaknesses. It is possible to overcome a much larger and stronger opponent if the correct techniques are used. In addition to the physical side, which is loads of fun, you will also learn the highly useful theoretical and psychological side of self defence. ​​​
The course is designed for all levels of fitness and the training is tailored to suit. You will be put through staged realistic encounters where you will be attacked and use your learned skills to effectively defend yourself. Whilst it sounds a little scary – most people find it exhilarating and empowering and feel confident that they can defend themselves having been tested. 

The course is run over a half day. Please contact Mission Fitness UK for availablity and booking.
