“Our weekly R.A.I.D Self Defence classes create a group unity of like minded individuals that want to develop self confidence and personal security knowledge in a friendly enjoyable environment”
The Rapid Action Initiated self-defence classes can be taken weekly with professionally trained and qualified instructors. The structure of our classes are broken down into five core elements which are warm-up and class introduction, basic defence training and fitness, conceptual defence teaching, scenario replication and warm down. External to this you will be provided with assignments so that you gain the academic understanding to qualify for your IQ Level 3 qualification.
RAID self defence classes are scientifically matched to the most common attacks of the streets and the real world today. Classes maybe for men or women or combined classes which are not traditionally driven in that we use all mediums to conducive learning such as analysing video or statements of violence of the streets today and practice such solutions to avoid and if necessary de-escalate and defend (we try and learn from others mistakes). We say prevention is better than the cure and that self defence is 60% psychological, 25% emotional and only 15% physical, so classes are interesting and personally rewarding.
Like the courses all class students are provided the self defence classes RAID manual full insurance and a logbook from the British Combat Association (BCA).
As men are 76% more likely to be attacked than women, the need for realistic training is paramount. The classes will develop an understanding of most common attacks and how awareness and observation play a huge role in the defence mythology. Through scenario replication you will be able to pressure test your defence concepts in different attack ranges to gain confidence.
Women face a variety of different potential attacks from muggings, sexual assault, domestic violence to physical assault. Alot of the attacks are more about physiological as the power is the main motivational goal. In today’s world it is important for women to have self-belief irrespective of age or physical prowess and the RAID System classes are your sure way of achieving this.
If you don’t have time to commit to regular classes, you may wish to learn through private tuition. This will provide condensed short training sessions where the focus is on your personal needs such as those that are travelling overseas etc. It is important to contact the instructor to discuss your needs and to arrange a training schedule that works for both you and them.
