Course Feedback

This was a great course which i enjoyed and my son loved. Invaluable for a quiet young man.

I was made to feel very comfortable during the day, I didn’t feel at any point that I was unable, everyone was very encouraging.

Real-life discussions around safety.


My fear was my dauggter would not participate. Patrick struck a chord early on when explaining this is what I teach soldiers and bodyguards Shee engaged with gusto!


Great day, well organised, nice mix of education and humour, lovely trainers made me and my  feel very comfortable


We absolutely loved this day course. My Daughter said she would highly recommend it to her friends (that doesn’t happen often!).

I felt it’s given her confidence in her strength along with life skills that hopefully she will never have to use.

I particularly loved how you focused in on the importance of safety and the feeling of being uncomfortable in a situation/ surroundings. I say this all the time but it carried far more weight coming from you.

You were really relatable to teenager It’s made conversations around safely etc easier and such a great tip for an exit strategy

Thank you and all your amazing team for a really worthwhile and great learning opportunity. Everyone there was so friendly and we felt so comfortable.


Absolutely amazing experience as always. You thought us so much throughout the whole day. I think it’s great for the kids to have all that knowledge of how to defend themselves, and get out of all types of difficult situations, and we had a lot of fun aswell, thank you for a great day.

A great course, both as a refresher for me personally and as a great introduction for my teenage son to both the psychology of self defence and the practical know how of staying safe and being able to defend himself. I would encourage any and every parent to consider doing this course with their teenagers - in my opinion, it is as essential a life skill as learning to swim, or learning to drive.
