Reality-Based Self Defence coach in Chester, BCA qualified, realism is our speciality.

Methodology

My approach to teaching self defence is quite simple; everything on my syllabus has been pressure tested, and can be learned in less than fifteen minutes or it doesn't get taught. Everything should be simple to learn, and then we drill until it becomes second nature.

The syllabus is for people who don't want to spend a life time and a small fortune of martial arts classes, that might take decades to learn (and even then might not actually work in real life). It is based on the following;

Punches (Boxing)
Elbows, Knees, Kicks (Muay Thai kickboxing)
Throws with a jacket (Judo)
Throws without a jacket (Greco-Roman Wrestling)
Ground work (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu)

Self Defence techniques should be like a First Aid kit; it's there when you need it but should dominate your every thought.

I have taught people from total novices all the way to 5th degree black belts. One of my strengths is being able to get the information across in a way that you can relate to, the class is designed around YOU and what YOU want to get out of it.

Experience

I am a reality-based self defence instructor, with over 24 years of martial arts experience. I have spent the last 13 years teaching practical self-defence techniques and concepts.

I am a British Combat Association certified instructor in the Real Combat System of self defence; A Hatton Academy certified Boxing instructor, a member of the British Martial Arts and Boxing Association (through which I am also a certified self-defence instructor), a member of the British Wrestling Association (Olympic amateur wrestling), a former Assistant Judo coach.

I am the Chief Instructor for Reality Based Urban Defence.

Rates

Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £80

Details

There might be additional charges if I have to travel a long distance, as the travel time would be time I could be teaching others. However, this is negotiable with each student.

Most times I ask only for travel costs in these cases.
