“For years I had been meaning to look into self-defence lessons and I just never got around to it. Then our work van, which is parked right under our bedroom window, got broken into and my husband and I chased the culprits off. This was my impetus to go online and finally do something about it.
After researching various martial arts disciplines, I came across the Combat Academy website and knew that was what I needed, reality-based self-defence I booked the induction morning with Richard a couple of days later and was totally blown away, I was hooked.
Richard is an empathetic, knowledgeable and professional teacher. The training sessions have an element of fitness training as well as the technical aspect of learning the moves. Everyone who trains in the classes is at different levels but it makes no difference, we still all learn something new every time we train. Most of all, it is fun as well.
Since starting with Combat Academy, I have found a new lease of life. I am more aware of my surroundings when I go out and am less afraid now, because I better understand the psychology of an attacker and know that I am not helpless; there IS something I can do to defend myself. It is totally empowering and I love it!
Can’t thank you enough Richard and Combat Academy in Essex, you’re the best!”
