Defence Lab is a new global phenomenon! Learn our new martial arts system from fully qualified instructors near Wimbledon and Earlsfield and we guarantee you will never look back!
Our regular weekly Defence Lab classes are taught by instructors who are passionate about MMA and the benefits our programme can bring. Our programme has evolved over two decades of scientific research into both the physical and mental sides of reality-based combat and how we can most effectively defend ourselves when we are faced with multiple attackers. It was developed by Andy Norman, who has a colourful past and long history in the study of martial arts. Over the years Defence Lab has been heavily tested and peer-reviewed against the simple question:
Does it work? The simple answer is,
yes it does!
Our system is suitable for everyone, not matter their age and ability and our special children’s programme – DL Kids – has been adapted for a younger audience.
Our MMA combat programme:
- Is tried and tested and based in reality
- Is not a sport of designed for the ring
- Genuinely deals with gang assault and looks at multiple scenarios, including knife defence, MMA-skilled opponents, strikers and more
- Will help you built fitness and strength
- Is excellent for developing self-confidence and self-esteem
Alongside weekly classes, we also run private classes for individuals or groups, bespoke corporate team-building packages and seminars for women. We also run self-defence classes in Wimbledon. To hear more, please call now on 0800 246 5937.

Everyone will know about the benefits of learning an ancient martial art but our system is different to ancient Japanese martial arts or Korean martial arts systems. Alongside the benefits of learning older systems, like discipline and self-awareness, you will learn a system that is relevant in today’s world, not moves and ideals that have been passed from one generation to another. Added to this, you will also get the chance to be taught by Andy Norman himself!
Why Defence Lab classes are different to Taekwondo lessons, Karate classes, Kung Fu lessons or kickboxing self defence?
- Defence Lab is a scientific study and we look at all areas of running into violence. In a real-life situation, you will end up on the floor and in positions you will not want to be in – we will teach you how to defend yourself from the ground upwards.
- Our system doesn’t claim to be perfect – it is always changing and evolving over time. Our instructors also receive ongoing training.
- Defence Lab is even used in Hollywood and Andy Norman taught Christian Bale and Liam Neeson for Batman Begins! Since then, Defence Lab techniques have been used in other blockbusters, such as Mission Impossible III, Jack Reacher, the Taken films and Clash of the Titans.
