Attending a Beginners self defence outdoor fitness class, Individuals comfort zones vary enormously, individuals who are prepared to challengeing their comfort zone should be and are positively encouraged within the classes, students are always free to watch and or take part in the activity, there are no have to’s.

All Training sessions are, friendly, welcoming, supportive and encouraging by all and all attendees are respectful, considerate and understand and practice compliance to others.

When people push themselves out of their comfort zone it stretches them, it can be a rewarding and positive experience surprising themselves and others, this helps build confidence.

Self defence isn’t just practical skills. Martial arts practical skills are to be used as a last resort. Part of the theory aspect teaches awareness and avoidance.

Initially students attend SDF Essex Beginners Self Defence classes, these run monthly in both Brentwood and Great Baddow Chelmsford outdoors.

SDF Essex Testimonial

…….”I had been looking for a Self defence class for my 10-year old daughter, due to start Senior School soon and walk on her own… She’s learnt a lot over a short period of time and has grown in confidence. The fitness sessions at the end are also very beneficial. I would highly recommend these classes in Brentwood and Chelmsford Essex.”

Mother and Daughter attending Self Defence classes.

What’s included

The beginners class includes theory covering personal safety, reasonable force and awareness.

Then the next couple of hours cover practical techniques including importance of personal space, how and what to say, restraining an attacker standing up, taking an attacker to the ground and restraining the individual on the ground.

Martial arts self defence training also helps build fitness and we complete the final session where, compliantly, the Instructor attacks the students individually and they apply the techniques they have just learnt in the class. The final part reinforces the actions required to overcome the Freeze element of an attack.

Generally most people have heard of the Fight or Flight reaction, however, the classes teach students a learned response to an attack, hence they then avoid Freezing in such a scenario, this is developed through repetition over further classes.

….“My daughter and I would like to say just how much we enjoyed Saturday’s beginners class (even with the wind and rain!). We found it informative and my daughter loved the practical side. She came away buzzing. We would definitely recommend”…. Reviews / Testimonial
