Essex outdoor self defence

What is your reason to learn self defence?

Looking for an Essex-based outdoor self defence and fitness activity in 2020 suitable for adults, children or the whole family together?

Students attend my classes in Brentwood and Chelmsford for many important reasons.

Many people are seeking to improve fitness, confidence and self esteem, some have had a frightening experienced.

Others are keen to make new friends whilst exercising and learning important life skills. The sessions teach personal safety with effective self defence techniques including knife and rape defence, standing and floor based skills.

Bullying – Never under estimate how great an impact bullying can have on someone’s confidence. Bullying can be physical or emotional and doesn’t just happen in the school playground.

Essex Outdoor Self Defence and Fitness

Late November 2019 there was an article in a national paper – ‘Why outdoor fitness and adding a dose of nature to your exercise routine could boost the mind and body #GreenExcercise’

Self Defence Testimonials

..I enrolled my two boys ages 10 and 13 to join SDF Essex for several reasons.

… I came along to support a friend and 3 weeks later really look forward to going along. 
The teaching is really good and caters for all abilities and fitness levels. As a family run activity the atmosphere is welcoming and fun. I love the mix of outdoor fitness and personal defence training outdoors. I work shifts, but can attend flexibly when I want and pay as I go which is ideal. 
As for the self defence I feel the benefit already in being more safety aware and with regular practice am improving every session. Why not come along and try something different you’ll love it! …
