WE CARRY REAL
WORLD EXPERIENCE

Years of experience, years of perfecting our craft. That's what has led us to this point here today. We've realised that the value of safety cannot be understated and that everyone should be able to feel safe and comfortable

in their surroundings. No matter where or when that is.

 

 

We've spent years shadowing the people who live their
life in the spotlight, ensuring that their safety is paramount. From Kanye to Kim, our priority was their safety, just like now it has become ensuring your safety.

On occasion when protecting those in the limelight our skillset has been called into action, but through practice, repetition, and confidence, we've never faulted.

With our training and our direction, neither will you.

WE TRAIN YOU TO
ALWAYS BE READY

During our tuition we  focus our attention not just on the on

the physical but also the psychological sectors of self defence. Within our programmes we cover personal safety, violence prevention and self defence of the body and the mind.

 

 

Our Content Includes, but isn't limited to...

Threat Awareness & Avoidance  |  Mindset/Body Language

Attackers & Their Habits  |  Verbal De-escalation Skills

 Spotting Warning Signs  |  Avoid Becoming A Target

Mitigating Knife Attacks  |  When To Strike First

Self Defence & The Law  |  Effective Techniques 

WE TEACH THAT YOU
DON'T NEED TO FEAR
THE SHADOWS

 

Darkness, shadows, the unknown. Three of the most common fears when it comes to real world situations.

With our courses we can teach you to not only become confident in these environments but to embrace them. We'll help you to develop not only the physical attributes to become prepared - but also the mental characteristics to be able to carry yourself confidently in those arenas.

 

 

 

We'll help to showcase that your biggest ally, is knowledge and the confidence of when and how to apply that, to any scenario you find yourself in. Working as a bodyguard all over the world has allowed me to gain valuable experiences that I can now happily pass on through my street defence courses. Wether
we like it or not, the world is a scary place, but with the correct training you'll discover that you no longer need fear the shadows...
