Self Defence

Rapid Action Initiated Defence (RAID) is a uniquely different approach to modern self defence and conflict management. The System has been designed by retired members of the UK Military Forces, which has become one of the fastest taught and learnt systems today by both Military and Civilian sectors.

This unique system has been designed to follow a systematic 5 step process of a confrontation, which you can learn and retain in such a short space of time due to the conceptual approach we employ. The RAID system has been created to give you a balanced recipe, to successfully defend yourself and provide heightened confidence in dealing with violent or hazardous confrontations. RAID is unbiased of gender, age, ability or physical stature and is available to anyone that wishes to learn the system, we have present students that range in age from 14 to 62 years old who all enjoy the learning environment.

This system is designed for people who live in the real world burdened by time constraints, finance and personal circumstances. This program is for those of you that require the benefits of being safe and secure but without the traditional life time of study. This is achieved by a conceptual way of study and not technical which makes the system un-perishable and easy to remember, when you need it most.
