Our self defense training is very practically based and can be tailored to suit the individual. We are particularly used to teaching self defense techniques for people travelling abroad – either alone or in small groups.
We emphasize avoidance as opposed to confrontation (it’s much safer) and techniques which do not inflict serious injury (killing or maiming an attacker is likely to get you into very serious trouble in most countries, especially if they are a local).
Practical self defense involves forward planning, awareness, positive body language, quick thinking, diplomacy and confidence. Physical confrontation is a last resort.
If it does get physical, take downs and restraints are both good options – they prevent an opponent from hurting you without inflicting injury on them. It may be necessary to disarm them first. The defense techniques that we do teach are based on kung fu, Chinese boxing and a great deal of experience. We only teach methods that are simple and effective.
Our training will provide you with the confidence which you need to travel without fear.
If you are embarking on travels, consider making the mountain retreat your first stop to achieve the peace of mind which comes from knowing that you can take care of yourself.
