London & Essex Groups Self Defence, Knife defence, Fitness, Women’s and Youth, Corporate Team Building and Birthday Parties

The training offers self defence personal safety activities for Women’s and Youth groups, Corporate Team Building, Hen and Birthday parties. Activities can be tailored to offer a bespoke package.

Why Self Defence Group Activity

Team Building / Group Self Defence activities can really make a difference and help build positive camaraderie, confidence, introduce and build new relationships, break through boundaries and barriers.

It has been proven that an environment that challenges people out of their comfort zone, pushes and stretches them, can be a hugely positive experience enabling individuals to shine, often surprising and impressing their colleagues / friends with sides of their personalities that are not visible in a work or everyday situation.

Work based activity / team building class SDF Essex reviews

I really enjoyed the session – it was interactive, and he explained things really clearly and not in a way that made situations feel frightening. I would definitely be interested in attending another session to build on what we learnt.

I really enjoyed the session and would definitely recommend it to others. I liked the repetition on learning the basics for the two different attacks. My biggest takeaway is the perils of walking along staring at a mobile phone and or having earphones in whilst running/walking in a crowed area.

Self Defence group activities in and around London and Essex.

The events can be used for networking, as product launches, staff morale builders, Hen Birthday parties and team bonding and can be run for either Women only, Youth or mixed Adult groups.

Groups Learn Self Defence

Employees will feel valued, all attendees will actually be learning valuable life skills in self defence and personal safety.

….Richard has provided self defence training sessions for Grapevine Essex and I can really recommend him. He was brilliant with our members and they felt well informed and much more confident after the session. (full details see testimonial page here)
