All martial arts contain self defence material, but not everyone gains a full scope of skills for all their efforts in training. Most commonly, it ends up being concentrated in one or two areas. A question many people have asked me over the years is “What would you do if…?”

With this programme I offer my answer for all the different areas of physical confrontation. Striking, clinch, weapons, ground and multiple opponents. The aim is, and will always be, to equip individuals with core skills in all of these areas of self defence.

In the curriculum there are principles and techniques from JKD, Filipino Martial Arts, Silat, Grappling Arts such as BJJ and Catch Wrestling.

The focus is to keep the curriculum lean, whilst maintaining the options of branching out to expand individual training, or just continue getting better at the material contained in the curriculum.

It will never be a vast, convoluted curriculum and will always have 3 levels. It is meant for everyone, because everyone has a right to defend themselves, and I look forward to seeing you in a session soon!

You must be 18 or over and already have an intermediate to advance level in martial arts. If you’re a beginner, you can join the course with the view to becoming an instructor in 2024!

Throughout 2023, you have up to 4 attempts to pass!

Each 2 day event will take place in Bradford, West Yorkshire. If you’re interested in having it take place at your own gym/club, please get in touch by using the contact form

Yes, you can select “Day 1 Only” below at the booking section, choose which date you want to attend, March, May, Aug or Dec.

Yes, message me directly to arrange

The course will be delivered across 2 days, each being 4-5hrs long. Day 1 will be training in all the techniques, partner work, drills, pad work, ground work, and weaponry. Day 2 will be the testing phase for the instructor candidates. You will be required to show you understand the material, demonstrate it under pressure and display the ability to teach.

This 2 day event will take place 4 times throughout the year, in March, May, August and December of 2023. This means that throughout the year you get to train, develop, refine everything or re-test if needed.

It WON’T be easy, this is NOT a “pay to pass” course. Your ability to learn, display and teach the material will be tested. It will be challenging, you’re not guaranteed to pass, this is not a cookie cutter process. This is exactly why your achievement will count and mean something.

You are required to attend a minimum of 2 of the 4 weekend.
