Self defence classes for adults and children and self defence team-building for businesses in Byfleet, Surrey

Defence Lab is a new and special system within the worlds of self defence and martial arts. The aim of our classes is to teach our students in Byfleet, West Byfleet and Sheerwater how to save their life, if they are set upon on the street. Our self defence training has been designed to teach you tried-and-tested self defence techniques and strategies that have been developed over 20 years of scientific studies. This system looks at the mental, physical and spiritual aspects of self-defence and attack and is designed to meet the demands of the real-world in the 21st century. The system is constantly changing and no one – not even our best instructors – have finished their learning because it is a continual journey of self-discovery and change.

These classes match all the benefits of taking a fitness class; with Defence Lab you will burn calories, build muscle, improve flexibility and coordination and much more. You may have wondered about taking MMA classes or classes in Krav Maga, hand to hand combat, Wing Chun, Kickboxing, Thaiboxing, Taekwondo, Karate, Jeet Kun do, Kung Fu or Muay Thai? These systems are outdated because they were created hundreds of years ago and with Defence Lab, you will get the opportunity to train with the founder Andy Norman and the Defence Lab ‘top team’.

Alongside classes for teenagers and adults of all ages and fitness abilities, we also have regular weekly self defence classes for youngsters from age four upwards, called DL Kids, where we teach the Defence Lab techniques, specifically adapted for children.

We also run the following bespoke services:

  • Private one to-one lessons or private classes for small groups
  • Special seminars, including seminars for women’s self defence and personal safety
  • Tailor-made team-building and event packages for corporate clients
  • Defence Lab parties for kids
  • Self defence, anti-bullying courses and personal safety courses for schools and colleges

Cannot speak highly enough of Tahir (lead instructor) and his methods of training. My 11 year old daughter started here in December and her enthusiasm show’s no bounds! The whole training ethos has had such a positive impact on her. Training can be hard but is always fun and teaches everyone respect and the value of looking out for not just yourself but friends as well. I can highly recommend this class to anyone interested in getting fitter, having fun and learning skills to take forward in life. Come along, give it a try, you will not be disappointed!!! .

DNA Fight Science: Our self defence classes in Byfleet & Sheerwater

Our self defence system is considered one of the best in the world. It has evolved over two decades and DNA Fight Science studies all aspects of the human make-up.
Andy says: “I have always been fascinated with the study of the human; DNA clearly being a ‘secret’ code of our genetic makeup. I have, right from the very beginning of my studies, been captivated with the process of defence in attack; how to make a defence mechanism the most brutal and ballistic form of self-defence, as luck would have it, DNA can also be seen as an acronym for defence ‘in’ attack… so that’s how the DNA fight science name came about”.

Through our classes you will learn:

  • How to protect yourself and your friends
  • Defending yourself against more than one attacker
  • Physical and verbal attacks
  • To question and push the boundaries
  • Fighting from the ground, through levels of transition, such as sitting and kneeling

The film industry loves Defence Lab’s style of combat and when searching for a new fighting style on the Batman films, Hollywood discovered Defence Lab’s Andy Norman, who has since worked with many stars on films, such as Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Mission Impossible 3, Clash of the Titans and Jack Reacher.
