Our classes are easy to learn, hard to forget.
Self defence has never been more important than it is in current times. Take a look at one of our classes in action here:
It isn't about being fearful, it's just about being sensible and safe. KB Self Defence offers the following weekly class:
TUESDAY 6.15PM in Belsize Park. For adults and children accompanied by parent/guardian.
We try and avoid dangerous situations, we try to keep safe on the roads etc. but what if you're being attacked and you need to protect yourself; would you know what to do?
You need training that is easy to learn but won't be easily forgotten. You need to be taught how to fight back when necessary. It is not always an option to run. We will teach you.
CLASS CONTENT IN BRIEF
- Mental awareness and attitude.
- Diffusing a situation.
- How to stand (stances).
- Strikes - legs and arms.
- Grip & strangle releases.
- Joint manipulation and pressure points.
- Using body weight to your advantage.
- Floor and wall work.
The classes are not violent nor aggressive and cater for all sselhapes and sizes and levels of fitness as the classes are not aerobically demanding. Please do not hesitate if you are unfit, overweight, a complete beginner.
Our self defence classes in London are designed for the everyday person. Lasting 1 hour, our classes cover personal safety awareness in your daily life as well as focusing on easy to remember and effective physical self defence techniques. You do not need to have any Martial Arts experience, just a willingness to learn to protect yourself.
Physical combat may not come naturally to a lot of people, but self defence is more about a state of mind than body strength. You don't have to be an aggressive person, but it is important to be aware of your surroundings, think ahead and avoid hazardous situations.
The class will offer many practical techniques that may work in any number of different situations; whether it be an unwanted grope on the tube or something more serious. The class will be interactive, giving you the opportunity not only to try out these techniques and gain confidence in using them, but to ask questions along the way and even ask to be shown a solution to a problem you may have faced. We also hope to have some fun.

All instructors hold licences for insurance purposes, awarded to them by UMAI and WAKO, respected bodies which have many representatives throughout the world. They have the ability to motivate and boost confidence, at the same time as being patient and committed to ensuring that each and every one of their students is satisfied with their progress.
LEARNING SELF DEFENCE DOES NOT GUARANTEE YOUR SAFETY
KB Self Defence does not intend to lull you into a false sense of security. Kelly and Dalia clearly state:
"nobody is definitely able to defend themselves, even we do not know that we are always safe. However, we believe it is better to know something rather than nothing, to increase your chance of being able to defend yourselves. Don't delay, sign up."
Physical intervention is a last resort to be used when you have no other option but to defend yourself. Practising the moves regularly over time is essential to try to ensure they become second nature and will render them far more effective in any real situation. So, once you finish your class, keep on performing these techniques on your own as part of your regular, ongoing exercise regime.
