London Corporate Self Defence Classes


Are you concerned about your employees being attacked and generally feeling unsafe?

It’s hard not to worry about your staff when they’re heading home from the office, travelling to a meeting, working from home, or even due to the nature of your business.

Living in London, or any town in the UK, can be dangerous, regardless of your age or gender. Reports of assaults and general crime are on the rise, and 24-7 news just adds to and heightens our inner fears.

Would you like them to have the skills and confidence to be able to protect themselves?

Show your employees how much you care by arranging a class or course with us. They will enjoy it, and thank you for it, which in turn is beneficial for your employee relations and loyalty.

Self-defence has never been more important than it is in current times.

The Chief Instructor at KB Fitness, Kelly Bunyan, has always said: 


"It is better to know something rather than nothing. It isn't about being fearful, it's just about being sensible and safe. At the end of our class, your team will feel empowered, know some useful combat techniques, as well as the law."

It’s an unfortunate fact that crime rates are increasing, which is why keeping your team as safe as possible is essential. The button below will take you to the Crime Rate website, where you can see an overview of the crime statistics for London.

This is what some of our clients said about our self-defence team building:

“Dee from KB Self Defence came to our office for a team bonding/wellbeing activity. From beginning to end, Dee made us all feel incredibly comfortable and engaged. We received information about the law around self defence and we were encouraged to get hands on straight away. This session was invaluable for beginners and Dee created a safe and supportive environment where we could ask any questions about the theory and practice. It was a great introduction and would 100% recommend to anyone who is looking to become more knowledgeable about their personal safety.” Robyn Copp-Barton, Natwest.

"I recently organized a workshop for my colleagues and it was absolutely fantastic! Dee was a brilliant trainer - she made everyone feel at ease to ask questions and try out moves. We felt so empowered by the end of the session. Working with her and the team was an absolute pleasure. If you're thinking about doing a class I'd 100% recommend!!” Gabrielle Louden, BP.




"KB Fitness have delivered excellent self-defence classes during our seminars for international youth volunteers, over a number of years. They've always given us an outstanding experience! Definitely recommended." Dave Entwistle, British Red Cross.

“KB Fitness visited River Island HQ for a session with our Islanders for International Women's Day (in person and online) and it was INCREDIBLE. Not only did everyone learn a few self-defence moves to boost confidence whilst travelling, but Dalia (the Instructor) also shared some top tips we can use to help increase safety. From booking the session to completing the session, the process was smooth, quick and easy and everyone in the team accommodated our needs from beginning to end. We really felt that KB Fitness are passionate about what they do in ensuring people are equipped with what they need to stay safe and that passion was felt by all of our Islanders too. Thank you so much for doing what you do and we can't wait to have you back here at River Island HQ!” Sacha Thomas, River Island.

“We really enjoyed our kickboxing class with Dee to celebrate International Women’s Day.  She was very warm and friendly and really knew her stuff.  I would highly recommend!” Olivia Briden, Dixon Wilson.

"Dee ran a fantastic session for us which was engaging, fun, and really useful tips on self defence and staying safe. She was really generous with her time and an absolute joy to work with! Communication was excellent and it was incredibly easy to organise. Would always ask her back to teach classes again!" Louisa Kataria, Royal College of Music.


"We loved our session with Dee, it was really informative and active and we learnt lots of techniques for defending ourselves - thank you so much!" Em Partono, MyTutor.

"We used KB Fitness to run a session for yr7 students at our secondary school. Dee was fantastic at providing the students with some tips and advice on how to protect themselves when travelling to and from school. A lot of students, especially our students use public transport so this self-defense session was really beneficial for them. Thank-you Dee and KB Fitness."
Samantha Taylor, Woodford County High School for Girls.

"We can not recommend doing this course enough. As Dee is ex-Met she knows, and has seen, everything, and therefore her knowledge and advice is extremely comprehensive. She not only gives amazing advice and guidance on the little things we can do to stay safe in many scenarios and situations but the physical side of the self-defence moves she showed us made us all feel strong and completely capable of protecting ourselves no matter our size. Dee is very personable and we all instantly felt very comfortable and in a safe space in her presence. She has empowered us far beyond anything we were expecting. The course is practical but we also had fun as a team doing it and practising together. This course is imperative for all women to empower yourselves and have confidence in your own strength and ability."
Amy Lonnen, Anomaly London.

"Really great. After the awful cases of Sabina Nessa & Sarah Everard we decided to get some self defence classes for our colleagues and they were brilliant. Dee was fantastic role model for, not just the women but us all and everyone was so very grateful. Can't recommend enough! Jimmy Cosgrove, Sensat.

"Dee was brilliant! A very engaging teacher - the class was super informative & way more fun than we thought it'd be! I feel ready for anything London throws at me." Adam Clarke, Reload Digital.

"Dee’s self defense sessions definitely improved my confidence. I would say that the sessions have got me to think more about my surroundings when I’m alone - now I’m on alert, but in a good way. Dee is extremely approachable, friendly and helpful - she has really guided us as a group and we feel valued as a result of this class. I think the techniques she show us are very clever, they force us to think in different ways and consider our own strength. I am excited for more of her sessions. Thanks Dee!!"
