Do you want to be fitter, stronger and more confident? Defence Lab is the fastest-growing self-defence and martial arts school in your local area. We teach students of all ages, genders and athletic abilities, including children. Unlike traditional martial arts, like Korean and Japanese martial arts, we do not teach hundreds of patterns and movements; our system is a truly special and unique self defence system, that focuses on simple – but highly effective – techniques that anyone can learn. From defending yourself from a lying or kneeling position, through to dealing with multiple attackers and knife threats, our system is designed to be used in the real world.

Defence Lab is the result of over 20 years of study of the mental, physical and spiritual features of attack and defence and is based on real-life dangerous situations. It is also not static and changes and evolves along with the world in which we live. We encourage our students to avoid confrontation and diffuse potentially difficult situations and if all else fails, to defend themselves by using their bodies as a weapon. Our training not only develops self-defence ability, along with confidence and self-esteem but also boosts fitness, strength and agility – all in a safe, fun and harmonious environment.

Our martial arts training:

  • Is suitable for women, children, teenagers and adults of all ages and fitness abilities
  • Is not an outdated martial arts programme – our students will get the opportunity to train with the founder of Defence, Andy Norman
  • Looks at areas of assault and attack in the real world, including verbal and physical aggression
  • Has been designed so every technique works on the street in the here and now
  • Improves fitness, body coordination, agility and strength
  • Boosts self-confidence and self esteem
