Self defence training and self defence teambuilding in Woking, Surrey

Do you want to learn a revolutionary self defence system so you feel safer on the streets at night when you are walking alone? Perhaps you’d like your children to go to local self defence classes to boost their confidence and self-esteem and so they know the right way to tackle bullies in the classroom? Or maybe you would like to book some self defence events or private self defence lessons for your business? Working with people of all ages in Woking, Pyrford and the nearby areas, Defence Lab can help you reach your goals.

In a world where we are paying ever more attention to our physical fitness, Defence Lab training can help you stay fit, build muscle and learn a valuable skill: to defend yourself against attack on the street. Defence Lab is a global network of self defence and fitness facilities and is based on over 20 years of scientific study.

Developed by Andy Norman, this unique system looks at both the physical and mental aspects of self defence. It is a free-thinking system, designed to adapt over time, where there are never winners and losers – it is simply designed for use on the street in real-life situations, where it matters most. The Defence Lab saying is this: “We study violence so as to escape it, prevent it, and if all else fails, utilise it ourselves to survive.”

This reality-based self defence system is pressure-tested and constantly evolving over time. It deals with defence against multiple attackers, from positions you don’t want to be in from the ground upwards, defence against knives and many other complex aspects of real-life combat and the world we live in. Our classes cater for all ages and abilities, we run a special programme tailored towards self defence for children, called DL Kids, which incorporates educational programme, Learning for Life. Not only will training with us ensure you can defend yourself against attack but it will improve your confidence, fitness, strength and self-awareness.

Our Defence Lab training instructors also teach private lessons (either one-to-one, two-to-one or in small groups) and corporate packages for businesses, including self defence teambuilding, self defence training days and seminars including women-only seminars.

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!!! .
