female self defence

Self defence techniques that could save your life!!


In an increasingly violent world the ability to defend yourself is becoming ever more important.
There are many simple defence techniques and stategies that women should be aware of to stop them becoming a victim, and we can teach you them.


- Simple techniques to apply and remember
- Risk avoidance strategies
- Confidence and mind set development

We cater for all fitness levels and abilities, we encourage discussion and debate along with practical exercises and practice, and we always have a giggle on the day.

Group classes run at the Cheltenham CDA Academy and costs £30 per session or £40 if paid on the day. Classes will cover types of assault, preventitive strategies, predator tactics, targeting, stikes, tools, escapes, ground scenarios and anything else we have chance to cover.  

Our next Workshop!!!
Following the successul response to our 'Essentials' Female Self defence class we are running another one for all those that missed the last one. 
In addition we are running a second half that will develop the techniques and ideas covered in 'essentials' to a deeper level addressing the elements of 'grabs & ground'.

'Essentials' covers the psycology of an attack, evasive and preventative strategies and tactics. In addition we foster an understanding of range, distance, defensive structures, targeting and attacking tools. 
These skills aim to keep you in the high percentile area of safety, but teach you multi level skills to enable escape options should an attack occur.

'Grabs & Ground' further develops the concepts of 'Essentials' with a greater emphasis on the 'attack' scenario. We will be teaching techniques for escaping grabs and holds, and for fighting from the ground. This class is the perfect addition to the 'essentials' concepts and skills.

It is £30 per person if you pre pay and £40 if you pay on the day.

  Honestly the best self defence class I've been to. No theatrics, just very practical with effective moves that I feel would remember and work.
I think every girl should do this course.
