Master our special self-defence training programme near Tadworth and bully-proof your life!

Are you thinking about learning self defence near Tadworth, Chipstead, Burgh Heath, Tattenham Corner or one of the nearby areas? There are many compelling reasons to learn self defence. As well as feeling confident and boosting your fitness, there is no better feeling than knowing you can take care of yourself mentally and physically in a challenging situation or altercation. Defence Lab is a tried and tested system that has been developed over two decades of rigorous drills and testing. We know that it works and we constantly adapt it to change as the world around us evolves too.

The system has been developed by Andy Norman, who has an incredible training pedigree. He says: ‘I have always been fascinated with the study of the human; DNA clearly been a ‘secret’ code of our genetic make-up. I have, right from the beginning of my studies, been captivated by the process of defence in attack; how to make the mechanism the most brutal and ballistic form of self-defence, as luck would have it, DNA can be seen as an acronym for defence ‘in’ attack… so that’s how DNA fight science came about.’

We believe that Defence Lab and DNA Fight Science is the most functional and powerful self defence system there is because it looks into both the physical and mental aspects of combat and defence. It is not a sport or designed for the ring, where there are ‘winners’ or ‘losers’; our classes are about how to defend yourself in a real-life situation, against multiple attackers on the street.

Defence Lab makes an excellent alternative to: Krav Maga, Thai boxing, Muay Thai, hand to hand combat, Karate, Judo, Taekwondo, Wing Chun, MMA, Jeet Kun Do and kickboxing. We also run martial arts classes in Tadworth. Unlike ancient martial arts, students do not learn a series of outdated moves that are passed down through generations but a system that works in the 21st Century. They will also get a chance to meet and learn from Andy and the Defence Lab top team.

We run weekly DNA Fight Science classes for teenagers and adults; a specialised programme designed specifically for children, called DL Kids; and we can also organise 1-2-1 classes or bespoke packages for businesses, focusing on teamwork or other aspects of their work or a specific industry. These classes can increase motivation, loyalty and staff retention, improve and help build relationships, improve communication and even strengthen staff health and reduce stress-related sick days.

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!!! .

Burn calories and skip the gym at our self defence fitness course near Chipstead

Our self defence classes will teach you to deal with any situation that can bring you harm and being physically fit and strong is a big part of this. We teach our students to handle all parts of altercation and all different types of attack, where we may be caught in positions we don’t want to be in, such as when we are kneeling or sitting on the ground. Our self defence classes offer a workout that is far superior to any regular gym session, so you will incinerate calories, strengthen and tone your muscles as well as improve flexibility and mobility.

Why our self defence classes near Burgh Heath are great for kids!

In an age when bullying can be a big issue in schools and social situations,  learning self defence can help children challenge bullies and tangibly defend themselves in the face of physical attack. It also has a host of other benefits to them in everyday life, such as learning important moral lessons about respect, discipline and teamwork and improving focus and concentration.

Our DL Kids programme is a fun, exciting and challenging programme and helps children become more confident and learn the power of their inner strength. All our fully-qualified instructors are DBS-checked and foster a welcoming and friendly environment, where children make true friends outside of school and nurture a unique bond.
