somers--self-defence-logolatest real combat - white-stroke

When it rains, most birds head for shelter; the Eagle is the only bird that, in order to avoid the rain, starts flying above the cloud.

Everyone has the right to be safe, however, many people admit that they would not know what to do if they were confronted with a situation that threatens their safety.  Whether that be physical or mental abuse our training courses will firstly teach you what self-defence is and then train you on the varied techniques and tools that will empower you in an unsafe situation.  Our goal is to enhance your safety and the safety of your friends, family and colleagues.

Our self-defence courses focus on understanding fear, improving self-confidence, assertiveness and the realisation that effective communication can be a powerful protection tool.

Our training is designed for all walks of life and does not require martial arts experience or enhanced levels of physical fitness.    We run small focussed workshops where you will have the advantage of testing our techniques in a safe and structured environment.

Our goal is to teach you the art of dealing with all types of predators and bullies, not just the physical type.

I offer a limited number of 1:1 coaching sessions in self defence. I can also combine these sessions with life coaching skills so that you grow in confidence both physically and psychologically.

We have delivered training to front line NHS staff, Fire Fighters, council workers and school teachers amongst others.

I trained for 26 years with the legendary Geoff Thompson in the Real Combat System and am now the top instructor with the grade of 6Th Dan, one of only 2 in the world.

The system has been recognised all over the world and has even been talked about in the House of Commons and made the press in New York as one of the world’s top self defence systems.

The Real Combat System incorporates the Somers Self Defence Academy and we have instructors all over the UK and even some in Europe.

I also run weekly street self defence classes and I grade my students up to black belt. I offer 1:1 training that includes life coaching and self defence techniques that rapidly increase self confidence in every area of your life.
